Revelation 2: 20-22 I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. This was a stark contrast to the Catholic institution of clergymen whom took full advantage of their freedoms from taxes, military service, and immunity from civil disputes. The damnable teachings of Calvinism spawn an entire hellish arsenal of demonic lies. Chicago: NORC: Smith, Tom W. 1987 "A summary of findings from the General Social Survey."

To be successful in any endeavor, historical successes and historical failures and errors are not to be ignored, for that is how knowledge progresses. The Protestant and Enlightenment philosopher John Locke argued for individual conscience, free from state control.

The bread and wine, being symbols, do not change substance. Les protestants modernistes hésitent à parler de « doctrine » ou de « religion ». The case of the Anglicans can be argued to be different as well in that, although born during the Reformation era, the Anglican doctrine is substantially different from the Reformation principles of most of the other Protestants of the time and is sometimes referred to as a middle path - a via media - between Roman Catholic and Protestant doctrines.

Scott, Things Catholics Are Asked About (1927),p. 136. "Nowhere in the Bible is it stated that worship should be changed from Saturday to Sunday .... Not impossible, but working uphill at every step, against the inertia of centuries and against many of the cultural and devotional patterns that have become ingrained in Catholicism. In my denomination (United Methodist) we baptize infants but generally do not name godparents. Catholicism in particular has always been adept at doing this, and the idea of miracles is hardly foreign to its culture.

About three-in-ten (28%) of those who changed within Protestantism say they made the transition to their current faith because of marriage, and 38% say moving was an important reason for their religious switch. And although I think that there is a distinctively Protestant form this answer can take, the option of this type of religious existence is not by any means limited to Protestants. By the 16th century, the Roman Catholic Church had developed a huge bureaucracy and had become very wealthy and interested in politics and earthly affairs.

Concupiscence and other effects of original and personal sin, according to Catholic doctrine, remain in the justified, who therefore must pray daily to God for forgiveness" (USA, no. 102). - "The doctrines laid down at Trent and by the Reformers are at one in maintaining that original sin, and also the concupiscence that remains, are in contradiction to God ..object of the lifelong struggle against sin ..[A]fter baptism, concupiscence in the person justified no longer cuts that person off from God; in Tridentine language, it is 'no longer sin in the real sense'; in Lutheran phraseology, it is peccatum regnatum, 'controlled sin'" (LV:E 46). - "The question is how to speak of sin with regard to the justified without limiting the reality of salvation.

The CLA received some responses to their newspaper ads, and Kinchley carried on an active correspondence with a few of �s Protestant laymen about Catholicism.� Certain exchanges reveal both Kinchley�s and his correspondents� attempts to define their identity in oppositional terms.� The primacy of the Bible (in Protestant minds) versus Tradition, the 1950 proclamation of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary, and competing interpretations of church history separated the two sides.� Following the Reformation�s emphasis on sola Scriptura�the argument that Holy Scripture was the final authority on matters of faith�southern Protestants held special reverence for the Bible.� One distinction they drew between themselves and Catholics was the tension (in their minds) between biblical authority and reliance on Tradition and the Magesterium for ultimate authority.� Indeed, the Bible served as a devotional symbol for Protestants, an equivalent to the Catholics� Blessed Sacrament.
