...Or Just Become Catholic

Of course evangelicalism has poor form; that's the point of evangelicalism. If you throw off the shackles of whatever it happens to be, you pay the cost of having done so. To attempt to restore those things opens up the very question of the wisdom of discarding them in the first place.

If one accepts an authority, he can only accept in in a principled way by accepting the terms under which that authority is exercised. Creedal Christianity that is not Catholic cannot survive serious inspection, because the very principle at the heart of Protestantism is the primacy of content (matter) over form,--mediated by private judgment--as opposed to the unity of both.

The end-point of this attempted recovery of the unity of form and matter is the Catholic Church. Don't say I didn't warn you.
