Christians Vs Protestants
December 4, 2006 10:34pm CST
Which side are you on? Reformation teachings that identify the Pope as the Beast of Revelation and / or Roman Catholicism as Mystery Babylon still manage to find their way into contemporary eschatology as well. Clearly, anyone with this view is not going to warm up to Rome any time soon. Roman Catholics that view legitimate Protestant denominations as little more than cults are in the same boat (although after a perusal of today's "Christian Bookstores" or most "Christian TV" programming it is hard to blame them). Many Protestants think Roman Catholics teach a works-gospel that cannot save, while Roman Catholics think Protestants teach easy-believism that requires nothing more than an emotional outburst brought on by manipulative preaching. Protestants blame Catholics for worshipping Mary and Catholics think Protestants are apparently too dull to understand the distinctions Rome has made in this regard. Free speech is the order of the day.

Not that heavy. Just something that we should learn about each other religions. Only then can we understand each other beliefs so that we can tolerate more towards another. Ignorance will make one afraid of the unknown. So lets join and be merry. I'm looking at my body, i'm no 'holy' man.
