Which Church?

Where would you point a non Christian seeking the Lord Jesus?. The Evangelicals seem to be on fire for the Lord right across the globe. Must we begrudge people who join their ranks?
And how are we to cope with all the Trad variants like Indult,  SSPX, Sedes, Independents.How can we tell a seeker that Catholic truth is to be found in one of the above groups but not the others?
 
For starters, Catholics first need to realize there can be only one true position on the current situation in the Catholic Church. The SSPX believes the pope is true but teaches error so they ignore him. The Novus ordo believes the pope is true and that what he teaches his Orthodox. The sedevacantists believe a pope cannot teach error and therefore the current Pope is an imposter. All 3 of these positions, cannot all be true at the same time, since they are directly opposed to one another. It is totally illogical to say that God is equally pleased with all 3 positions given that there are such major differences in each.

So your first goal as a Catholic today is to determine which position is the correct one. This leaves all other positions as false. Once you determine this, you would need to find the nearest Mass to you and attend it as often as you can, even if it means getting on a plane and going to another country a few times a year.

The Latin Mass is not some magical solution - it is whether the clergy saying the Mass are true clergy and actually have the faith or not.
