I have run into a debate with a Mennonite and the discussion entered into the theology of suffering. Now I know Catholics believe that we may offer up our suffering in union with the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross which is strengthened by Colossians 1:24. However I was unaware of any other protestant denomination who taught this also. the idea of offering up sufferings for others I believed to be a Catholic thing.
However this person disagreed with me and claimed that this is also what Mennonites believe. I am trying to find out if this is correct. It may be that Mennonites believe in something similar to catholics on suffering but with slight theological differences in their understanding of it…
…does anyone know?
