- A desire for seriousness in worship. While it's often appropriate to "shout to the Lord" and to "dance before Yahweh," some evangelicals have a problem with a church-as-playground mentality.
- A hunger for deep roots. Many evangelical churches do not claim a link to any historic denomination or movement. The Roman Catholic Church claims apostolic succession back to Peter. That resonates with some evangelicals.
- A need for intellectual and artistic richness that is too often lacking in an often superficial, consumer-oriented evangelical arena.
- A desire for clear cut authority. Sometimes this is due to intellectual laziness: "Just tell me what to believe."
The reasons evangelicals should not go Catholic are numerous. Listen to my source for this post for more information.
