by Kevin Allen Kevin is the award winning host of the radio program “The Illumined Heart,” and won the Best Podcast/Internet Radio Show once again! Congratulations Kevin on a well deserved award. For you, our JTO readers, we offer Kevin’s own conversion story. Enjoy! I began my spiritual journey in eastern religion – specifically Hinduism. […]
I was loaned the book “The Orthodox Church”, and the rest was pretty much history – it convinced me that not only was the original faith of the apostles uncorrupted, that in that same line of reasoning/faith, the ancient church was still alive – and almost as proof, that book finally made the Gospel start to make sense to me! I definitely believed in the importance of the Holy Tradition – I never understood the sola scriptura thing I was reading in the Protestant Books – they didn’t seem to realize there were large gaps in what they considered to be simple teachings/knowledge, because they were all interpreting according to some mysterious code that I hadn’t been exposed to, but claiming it was just all “written in the Bible”.
