  • The Church?

    I never hear Protestants refer to their Churches as The Church.
    "I Think it is Time Cathinfo Has a Public Profession of Belief." "Thank you for publicly affirming the necessity of believing, without innovations, all Infallibly Defined Dogmas of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church."

  • Probably for the same reason you never hear them refer to others as "non-Baptists", "non-Methodists". "non-Anglicans", "non-Pres-byterians", etc.

    Edit: strange word filter you got here!

  • I think because, deep down, many of them know that is what we are.   :wink:
    Stir up within Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the Spirit with which blessed Josaphat, Thy Martyr and Bishop, was filled, when he laid down his life for his sheep: so that, through his intercession, we too may be moved and strengthen by the same Spir

  • Protestantism by nature and origin is a revolutionary movement, and frankly they ultimately need something to rebel against. One only needs to view the works of those prominent heretics during the “Reformation” many including Luther admitted the necessity of the Catholic Church, and the fact that Rome has the Faith and all the valid Sacraments. Many of the first Protestants (once again including Luther) acknowledged the Catholic Church to be Christ’s Church, although their satanic pride made them acquire the opinion that they could just do it better… leading to the innumerable charges against the Church for falling into corruption, decadence, heresy etc… The rebellion (in this case Protestantism) has no purpose without the legitimate establishment (in this case the Catholic Church), and in denying Catholicism’s identity as “The Church” Protestants ultimately take away a huge part of the premise of their respective heresies.
