|It's in the Bible!|
More than half of Evangelicals believe the Holy Spirit is "a force," according to a poll conducted by LifeWay Research.
And this, kids, is why we need a rock solid magisterium, and what happens when people depart from the Holy Catholic Church. The Bear believes people have no idea just how different Protestantism is from Catholicism.
If an intelligent Catholic is puzzled by something, she will consult what the Church teaches, and perhaps inquire of some of the greatest minds in Christian history, or maybe ask Father.
|Yeah, they got hair, too.|
Catholicism is a religion of the Church. The Bible is honored as inerrant (by some more than others) but is always interpreted within the protective hedge of the magisterium.
Protestant = Book. Catholicism = Church. There are huge implications to this simple contrast.
Nonetheless, the more we can accommodate these people and adopt their methods and beliefs, the happier most in the Church leadership are. The question is, why?
