I have a protestant friend that I’ve been in dialogue with and we started discussing the priesthood, he said that:
“NO-ONE is “called of God” to ANY role in our day, the concept of “divine ordination” and “calling”, on an individual basis, is bogus. It’s simply not a reality in these days.”
I tried to use some quotes from the Church Fathers but he refused to accept them, asking for scripture only.
How would you respond to this?
