Protestant Departure

Pastor Nick Batzig joins Jimmy and Joe to talk about the departure of Protestants to the Roman Catholic faith. Why do some leave baptist, Presbyterian, and other churches for the Greek Orthodox or Roman Catholic Church? Does it even matter? Trigger Warning: This is a decidedly protestant podcast and episode. 

Who is Nick Batzig? Nick is the Organizing Pastor of New Covenant Presbyterian Church in Richmond Hill, GA. He has written numerous articles for Tabletalk MagazineModern ReformationReformation 21 and The Christward Collective. Nick is published in Jonathan Edwards and Scotland (Dunedin, 2011) and Jonathan Edwards for the Church (Evangelical Press). Nick is the editor of the Christward Collective and Reformation21, sites of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, and the host of East of Eden, a podcast devoted to the Biblical and Systematic Theology of Jonathan Edwards. You can friend him on Facebook here and follow him on Twitter @nick_batzig.

Note: We had some audio difficulties in our episodes with Pastor Nick that left is without a third quality mic. This left Jimmy sounding a bit rough. We will have this remedied quickly.
