Catholics, if you found yourself on an all-Protestant planet, what would your church choice be?


#1

Toooo much combative anti-protestant tone in the threads here, lately.

So in an attempt to lighten the mood and change the tone, can I ask you a question, just for fun?

If you HAD to belong to a Protestant denomination, which one would you choose?

This is a HYPOTHETICAL scenario just for FUN. Please no “I woudn’t choose any, because…(insert anti-protestant rhetoric here)…” . Please no arguments about “Why would you choose such-and-such when they are so (insert anti suchandsuch rhetoric here)”. Please? I know we can do this without bickering :slight_smile: Yes, we can. Can so. Can so…

Ok let me start. I would choose the WELS Lutheran church.

How about you?


#2

I don’t think your question is going to achieve your goal.

I do not find the question amusing or fun.


#3

Ok then here’s a idea: Don’t participate.

Have a nice day :smiley:


#4

Baptist


#5

Clever,

Well the obvious choices would be Episcopalian/Anglican where there is a bit more latitude of my own personal choices, Reformed doesn’t interest me, Lutherans are a good bunch, Baptists are a bit like Catholic, Methodists are looking to apply a Method and about getting me sanctified, Pentacostals would want me to speak in tongue and I don’t know about that, Dispensationalists have all those charts and I don’t want to learn all that stuff and I am not for getting Jews to Israel to be anhiliated, Evangelicals have good music and after much thought I decided on

The Ministry of Mike Murdoch…I can sit at home, watch television, send him money and in return when I sow my seed I will get wealthy…I have to succumb to my weaker side you know…:extrahappy:

lol


#7

Lutheran obviously. Maybe Anglican. Oh but wait, I’m not Catholic. Anyway, I think the anti-protestant polemics in here are quite cute at times, but mostly just repetitive.


#8

Are you currently Lutheran (while you are “considering”)? I’m curious as to what synod if you are.

Agree with " mostly just repetitive"


#9

LCMS, no doubt.


#10

I would choose confusion, because that is the seed of protesting, and then convert to the Catholic Church because it has Gods Mark of Approval.

+Lord, Have Mercy+


#11

Please, if you can’t choose a denomination then just don’t answer. I expressly asked for no anti-protestant statements in this thread. That’s the whole point of it, is to get away from that sort of thing.


#12

Nominally Dutch Reformed, never went to church though. But of all the protestants I like the Lutherans the most. They have a somewhat traditional liturgy, are not as liberal as the anglicans and they are just more apostolic in their doctrines than the calvinists.


#13

If I couldn’t have the fullness of truth, I guess I’d go for the most beautiful and uplifting liturgy possible. High Church Anglican, I suppose.


#14

Aha, thanks for answering. I know absolutely nothing about Dutch Reformed (but am preparing to Google, presently!).

Yes I found the WELS Lutheran church I attended to be conservative, liturgical and quite beautiful in the way they did things. The Anglican church I’d attended (ACNA) before was more liberal as you said.


#15

I wish I'd posted a poll! Looks like Anglican and Lutheran are the popular choices thus far.


#16

I really don’t like the question where would I prefer to protest Christ.


#17

:rolleyes:

Just a hypothetical question, no need to panic lol


#18

If I have to pick a whole denomination probably WELS or LCMS, but If I can pick specific parishes very high-church Anglican would be my first choice.


#19

Maybe Christian Universalist; if I didn’t accept the authority of the Catholic Church, and yet I still intended to be Christian, I imagine I’d reject eternal damnation (although sometimes its easier to believe in Hell than Heaven :p).
But I’d also want lots of liturgy. (Why belong to a church without churchiness?) So maybe a “conservative” branch of the Lutherans or Anglicans.

A title change and a smiley might help.
:wink:
