against a "personal relationship with the Lord Jesus"

While it is fresh in my mind, I'd like to put forth this excellent essay of The Ochlophobist. It deals with the widespread importation of the phenomena of American Evangelicalism into Catholicism and Orthodoxy, and is thus very relevant to my thinking about the varying religious cultures of this era, which I will be visiting in the near future in my ongoing series of essays.

I'll spare my elaboration on this for my own subsequent essay, but this puts to voice many misgivings that I've had regarding evangelicalism and its contemporary influence on the Catholic Church.
