Many times on this board and others I have been on I keep hearing (or seeing as the case may be ) the same thing over and over…
PROTESTANTS WORSHIP THE BIBLE!!!
Now, wouldn’t this fall under the same category as ‘Catholics worship Mary’? It is a misconception to say the least. I guess in order to figure out whether the protestants worship the bible or the catholics worship Mary we would first have to define ‘worship’.
Main Entry: 1wor·ship
Etymology: Middle English worshipe worthiness, respect, reverence paid to a divine being, from Old English weorthscipe worthiness, respect, from weorth worthy, worth + -scipe -ship
1 chiefly British : a person of importance – used as a title for various officials (as magistrates and some mayors)
2 : reverence offered a divine being or supernatural power; also : an act of expressing such reverence
3 : a form of religious practice with its creed and ritual
4 : extravagant respect or admiration for or devotion to an object of esteem
I am not here to accuse the catholics of worshiping Mary. That is not for me to say and I can’t say that is what I believe. BUT on the same hand we have catholics believing that protestants worship the bible. Which we don’t. I would like to hear people’s opinions and observations on this subject.
Do you think that protestants worship the bible?
