Tim Staples

Biography


 

Tim Staples was a fallen-away Southern Baptist who as a teen came back to faith in Christ through the witness of televangelists. During his four-year tour with the U.S. Marine Corps, he became friends with a Marine well-versed in his Catholic Faith who challenged Tim to study Catholicism from Catholic and historical sources.

That sparked a two-year search for the truth. Immediately after his tour of duty, Tim attended Jimmy Swaggart Bible College and became a youth minister in an Assembly of God community. He was determined to prove Catholicism wrong, but he studied his way to the last place he thought he would ever end up: the Catholic Church.

He converted in 1988 and spent six years in formation for the priesthood, earning a degree in philosophy and studying theology at the graduate level. Realizing that his calling was not to be a priest, Tim left the seminary in 1994 and has been working in Catholic apologetics and evangelization ever since.

Jimmy Swaggart Made Me Catholic

Tim chronicles his journey into the Catholic Church, showing how a die-hard Protestant came to realize that the beliefs he sought to defend have no real response to the truths espoused by the Catholic Church.


Sola Scriptura: A Recipe for Confusion

Tim refutes the common texts used by Protestants to demonstrate the “Bible alone” theory, and using the Gospels and the book of Acts he shows that Jesus and the apostles did not teach or practice it.
