What do Protestants experience when they describe a “personal relationship with God”?
#10
The way I see it is: If you were baptized, you are a member of the Christian Church, the Christian Church which is: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. You might be a disobedient member of the Church (e.g. a toe making war on the brain, or a fingernail warring against the general constitution of the body), but you are nonetheless, a member.

Being a member of Christ's Spouse - even if not a very good one (and let's be honest, "not a very good one," probably describes a lot of us on the internet...myself especially) - is going to be efficacious for entering into a grace-filled Covenant with Jesus...to SOME extent.

All we can do is pray that their encounter pulls them deeper into the Divine Bridegroom's Marriage with them (for which Catholicity is necessary), so that when the Bridegroom cometh in the middle of the night, He finds them ready, so He can take them to His Father's House.
