The last thread I started a thread on this question was an effort to specifically glean an understanding of why modern Lutherans do not accept that all seven Sacraments come from Christ. Unfortunately, the thread was invaded and hijacked by Catholic fundamentalists who were more interested in criticizing Lutherans than listening to their point of view.
So, I am going to try this again, and ask that Catholics refrain from posting the same material that is on the other thread, and for non-Catholics to please enlighten me about your views. This time I will not direct it specifically to to Lutherans, because I am motivated by this post:
Specifically I am still curious about the anointing of the sick and the series of posts following # 12 in the other thread. If Jesus did not command the disciples to anoint the sick with oil, and pray that they be healed, what is the origin of this practice?
