An article in the February, 2005 issue of “This Rock” magazine touched on the issue of “practical Protestantism.”
Must a Catholic believe in everything that the Catholic Church formally teaches or risk slipping into practical Protestantism?
Specifically, if a self-professed Catholic disagrees with any of the following seven issues, is he a practical Protestant?
- Premarital Sex
- Sanctity of Life
- Papal Infallibility
- Real Presence in the Eucharist
- Immaculate Conception
- Holy Orders for men only
