[quote=Jeanette L]I think his outburst confused everyone because he didn’t articulate his position well.
How is naming Saul of Tarsus an ‘outburst’?
[quote=Jeanette L]This is why he is offended, you have inadvertantly made him (and all those Christians who oppose the Catholic Church) a persecutor instead of a champion of Christ. It’s all a matter of perspective.
It is not a matter of perspective. History is not relative. Stuff happened. And stuff did not happen.
What did not happen was Luther nailing his 99 theses to the door before Saul of Tarsus fell off his horse. Or do you disagree with this observation?
Saul persecuted the Church. Please be good enough to name any Church other than the Catholic Church which was in existence at the time of Saul of Tarsus.
No offence was meant. If offence was taken, then perhaps next time we should not mention the absence of Luther in the first century? Add another elephant to the room?
