Catholicism (Day 6)

Today, Tracy, Fathanee and I talked about Catholicism in Guatemala. I feel that Catholicism is drastically misrepresented and misunderstood by Protestants. For one thing, Protestants still try to dissociate themselves too much from Catholicism, yet Catholicism is a denomination WITHIN Christianity, NOT a separate religion! Protestants seem quick to forget that it came from Catholicism and thus is guilty of much of the sins that the Catholic church has committed over the centuries.

The intentions of the Protestant Reformation were excellent, to reform the Catholic church of its corruption, but the much later result of the Reformation by Protestant churches of this century separating themselves completely from any form or Tradition is a substantial (and catastrophic) loss.

I think this is a very interesting conversation to engage in but I´ve been refraining from doing so for now because I don´t know enough about it. I hear what you´re saying though and I agree so far as I know for now.

de todo el cristianismo, el catolicismo es el que esta mas alejado de los principios biblicos. ademas, olvidas que en epocas pasadas (despues de la reforma protestante) los catolicos no se querian llamar a si mismo cristianos, sino catolicos.

pam, si no sabes nada del tema para que opinas.
