I’d like to challenge Protestants to take a moment and name something you admire about Catholics and/or Catholicism, and I’d like to make the same challenge to Catholics about Protestants. If you are going to engage in this, I sincerely request that you do so in a respectful and genuine way.
There are plenty of occasions to defend, compare, contrast, debate and explain matters of faith and I don’t want to minimize those meaningful interactions and encounters. Those are legitimate ways to learn and grow in the faith and to “…give an answer to every man who asketh you a reason for the hope that is in you…”. – I Peter 3:15.
I just wanted to take a moment and go a different route to see if Protestants and Catholics on CAF are fair-minded enough to see positive traits in each other instead or just focus on the perceived weaknesses and faults.
I was mainly aiming this toward Catholics and Protestants, but it would be fine if someone wants to do likewise for other religions, too. I just don’t have much personal experience with members of other faiths besides Catholicism and Protestant traditions.
