Were any of you taught that Apparitions of the Virgin Mary were really the Devil? This one will stay with me until I die. I will ALWAYS remember this.
And, there’s no way that Rev 12 could be Mary? Because it refers to a dragon & we know there’s no such thing as dragons?
Evolution is DEFINITELY NOT a possibitlity…at all?
What I’m asking, overall, is, were you taught (I went to a dispensationalist school for two years) anything so SUBTLELY anti-Catholic that you still have issues today about it? (That a miracle can be attributed to the devil…even though I know a house divided cannot stand…is a big one for me.)
Other things I have heard from other Protestants…
The deuterocananocal books were left out of the Protestant Bibles because they were written too late to be valid (though, lots of Protestants like the history of Maccabees).
The Papacy isn’t REAL because successors can only come through bloodlines.
Purgatory & Limbo are on the same level.
“Brother” HAS to be literal because, even IF there was no word for “Cousin”, they would still say, “My father’s brother’s son’s” if it wasn’t true…
…these are what I can remember right now. Please all, contribute because it never ceases to amaze me the new things I hear and the ignorance I have heard… I especially want to know that whole Mary’s aparitions are the devil thing…how much THIS has been propegated…
