Apparently not. That is where I am having a misunderstanding with Church teaching on salvation and how we are to evangelize. What if the loving Southern Baptist is lovingly leading people away from the one true Church? When I listen to the Journey Home show most every conversion story involves the person discovering the truth of the Catholic Church. Yes...our Lord said the greatest of the commandments is to love the Lord our God and our neighbor. But the Church is also the pillar and foundation of Truth and it just seems to me that more and more we are being discouraged from proclaiming the truth of our faith so as not to be perceived as arrogant.

Interesting that you used a southern baptist as your example. I retired and moved south and I am pretty much in the center of Baptist country. The Catholic population here is only 5% and I have been told I will have ample opportunity to defend the Faith....lol.  But that 5% is pretty vibrant and growing. I'd say there are about  8 parishes I could register with within a 10 mile drive in any direction including a couple that have the Latin Mass (one parish daily) and a Maronite parish.

Not seeing where you're getting the idea that the "SB" doesn't need to be evangelized. Everyone does. We're commanded to evangelize the world.
