I have a question to protestans out there. I myself am a former protestant. I converted 2 yrs ago. However, I really didn’t have an opinion or answer to the question back then to the question I am about to propose.
If you do not believe in the real presence, then do you think that all catholics, eastern orthodox, and all other christians that do believe in the real presence will go to hell?
If the real presence is incorrect then it is idolatory. I declared to a friend the other day while having a discussion on the real presence that if there was no real presence then a just God would damn me to hell for idolatory. The context of the conversation would take too long to explain here. But back to the point.
Would you agree, if the real presence is false, then belief in it is idolatory. Idolatory is a sin. So if the real presence if false, then belief in it is sinful. So, if the real presence is false did all mainline Christians before the protestant reformation go to hell?
This is a serious question. A just God would damn people to hell for full out idolatory, when the people had full knowledge of His message. So, I want your opinion on all of this.
