I know that you have to be evangelical to be Catholic, because one needs to believe in the Gospel (Evangelio). But my question is: Can one be Roman Catholic and Evangelical Christian (that is, from the Protestant denomination)?
As some have pointed out, one can be "evangelical" as a Catholic; but asking whether you can be both Catholic and Protestant just doesn't work...
I ask because although I attend Mass on Saturday afternoons
Is this the anticipated Mass for Sunday, or is this the Saturday daily Mass? (It makes a big difference...!)
But I seem to agree with most of what the Pastor says.
Does the pastor believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist? Does he believe that sacramental reconciliation is possible? What does he believe about baptism -- does it forgive sins? (The parts that he doesn't believe in -- especially if you're not hearing about what he doesn't believe, when he speaks from the pulpit -- is huge!)
In another thread, an Anglican sister said that Roman Catholics and Protestants have about 90 percent or so the same beliefs (The Trinity, The Holy Bible, etc.).
I agree with her.
Humans and chimps have about 96 percent or so the same DNA. Does that mean that you can be both 'human' and 'chimpanzee'? ;)
