]One anomaly that comes to mind between the Catholic vs Protestant situation comes
down to one question for me: Who Is In Control Here? According to Protestantism, as
far as I am aware, the Roman Catholic Church is wrong, but curiously, the Protestant
Movement didn’t start until the 15th Century, right?
]Now the Apostles all lived up until around the end of the 1st Century, Protestants are okay
with the first few centuries after, then somehow the Protestant position is that the Church
somehow went wrong. Again: The Protestant Movement started around 15th Century. So
that would mean that for ten to fifteen thousand years, Christ’s Church was in some way
lost to the Earth.
]It wasn’t in the Roman Catholic Church, it was not in any of the Orthodox Churches
(Ethiopian, Coptic, Eastern, etc.), it wasn’t among any of the heretical sects, God’s
Church seems to have disappeared from the Earth.
[RIGHT] Now we get to the 1500s (16th Century)…
]Then came Martin Luther (du–du–du–duuuh!), suddenly the correct Bible
came, people broke free from the donkey herd of bishops and Popes,
England’s Churches became subject at last to its King of England,
people sailed off to the New World, bunch of new more correct
Christianities sprouted up and came also the wacky cults…
*]This is confusing, how is that the Church which Christ
established and said that the Gates of Hell would not
prevail against it?
*]Let me now return to my
main question: Who’s in
*]The Catholic position is that the Holy Spirit is supposed to be guiding Christ’s True
Church and I’m sure many Protestants would say the same thing, but HOW is the
Holy Spirit guiding? History shows the Holy Spirit guiding the Catholic Church e―
ven in hard and dark times, but things only seemed to get darker in Protestantism.
It seems that as soon as Man tried to fix the Church, move away from the Church, found
Newer–er Churches, write bibles by himself, try to interpret Scripture by himself, without
that raggedy Old Church telling him how, things REALLY got freaky.
