I wanted to try what I perceived to be an interesting experiment and an exercise. I think that it is healthy, if one is to successfully argue his own perspective, to have a fair understanding of his opponent’s. That said, I would like to start an “opposite” thread, in which anyone who contributes, Protestant or Catholic, must only argue a position diametrically opposed to what he/she actually believes. I think this would be especially helpful to “new” apologists. If this idea is stupid, it’ll drop on it’s own, but if the experiment proves popular, I’ll start another “opposite thread” topic, such as sola-fide, in a week or so. Now, since I’ll assume most members of this forum are Catholic, I’ll break my own rule and post a distinctly Catholic statement to start the discussion (but as OP, I’m the only one allowed to do this). Any Protestants who respond must argue the Scripture + Tradition position. If a Catholic responds, he/she must disagree with me:
Starter prompt: Sola Scriptura is a failed foundation for any Christian who wants to truly understand Jesus’s plan for his church.
