Default Reminding our Separated Brethren about "Catholic Beliefs"

Maybe our separated brethren need to be reminded what they owe to Holy Mother Church.

There is only one God. (De Fide)

God is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. (De Fide)

In God there are Three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, Each of the three persons possesses the one (numerical) Divine Essence. (De Fide)

The Second Divine Person proceeds from the First Divine Person by generation, and therefore is related to Him as Son to a Father. (De Fide)

The Holy Ghost proceeds from the will or from the mutual love of the Father and of the Son. (De Fide)

All that exists outside of God was, in its whole substance, produced out of nothing by God. (De Fide)

Didn't you forget one? Miss Mass and you'll go to hell (it's a mortal sin, remember)? Oh yeah, Protestants didn't go for that one...

They also need to be reminded that they have the Bible because of the Catholic Church as well and that it never should have been tampered with such as the removal of the deuterocanonicals. Can any Protestant legitimately challenge this? I have yet to see this. - Mfaustina1

Interestingly on that note, a poster in another board I know said this (and paraphrased):

It's interesting to see that many anti-Catholic Protestants use a play on numbers to equate the Vatican and the Vicar to the number 666 in the Bible (which, by the way, referred to Nero, D'oh!)
Now before the Lutheran reformation the OT contained 73 books which include apocrypha and deuterocanonica. "7" and "3" are considered "perfect" numbers in Christianity, are they not? (as opposed to "6", which is why it's been used for the number of the Devil).
Luther took out 7 books out the OT, and what did that leave them? "66" books of OT. Hmm....we can answer a number play with a number play if we want too, hmmm?

Remind the seperated bretheren that they are even seperated from one another with 30,000 different denominations!

Before the Reformation all of Europe was Catholic...So the Reformation was really a civil war, religiously speaking, so it was catholic against Catholic.

Isn't it tme the catholics, like the prodigal son, came home to the Catholics. This foolishness of twisting doctrines is nothing else but a childish little game. When you don't have the Truth all the "duct tape" in the world won't patch a false doctrine together.

Thanks
