=Adamski;11694649]I hear evangelicals say they believe in the trinity but they only ever pray “in jesus name” I have never heard them say in the name if the father son and Holy Spirit.
I’m not an American evangelical, so I can’t say. Lutherans confess the Trinity in the same way Catholics do, through the creeds, etc.
Yes I strongly believe Protestantism got rolling because of love of sin Martin Luther said that he could commit 1000 sins a day and it wouldn’t effect his salvation, John Calvin killed anyone who didn’t agree with him, Henry the 8th and divorce/ adultery along with killing and stealing
I strongly encourage you to read GKC’s post, #7. Luther’s comment which you reference has nothing to do with a love of sin. You have taken it wildly out of the context of the letter to Melanchthon. I might add that the CC did not have particularly clean hands in that era. That is no excuse for some of the violent things done in the name of reformation, but the guilt is broadly shared.
My mind is blown away that any educated person could be a Protestant.
That’s a lot of intelligent, well educated people you have dismissed so readily. If you go on some other forums, you can read the same types of comments about Catholics. Neither is true.
Sacramental Christianity similar to the Rcc was prominent in Ethiopia and India with no roman influence from Pentecost all the way to present time
Just a reminder that Lutherans and Anglicans are sacramental communions (with a significant amount of Roman influence, I might add), which goes to the point that a broad brush, while it covers a lot of area, usually isn’t accurate.
