I understand what you are trying to say here but I think that we are taking about two different things.
Roman Catholics for instance, might correct someone who calls them “Eastern Orthodox Catholic” but they do not deny that they are Roman Catholic, or Catholic or Latin Rite Catholic if in fact they are, unless they don’t know any better. Roman Catholics are also Christian but not “Protestant” Christians.
Technicall speaking, all non-Catholic Christian denominations which descend from or were “borne out of” the “Protestant Movement” are “Protestant” and they are rejecting an accurate title or description of their “Faith” which is usually a division of, or sub-division of one of the early “Protestant” religions.
[FONT=Arial][size=2]The term “ Protestant" is used here at CAF because it would be impossible for Catholics here to address all of the various non-Catholic Christian and “Protestant” denominations here by there specific denominational-name.[/size] [/FONT]
One can still be “Protestant” and identify with a particular denomination. “Protestant” (in quotation marks) identifies those who are non-Catholic Christians and Protestant (without quotation marks) can be used to describe the Protestant Church, a “Protestant” denomination.
“Protestants” all use a “Protestant Bible”. The King James Version Bible (KJV) or Bibles based on the KJV, are all “Protestant” Bibles. King James was a “Protestant” English King and he authorized the KJV Bible.
Catholics use a different Bible. “Born-Again” Christians for example, did not create a new “Born-Again Bible” based on their beliefs…They all use a “Protestant” KJV Bible… They do not use a Catholic Bible.
I hope this helps.
Maybe my thread title should have been - “I’m Protestant and didn’t know it”.
