>Inconsistencies in the biblical text had to be explained away; errors,redundancies,absurdities, or anything shocking, indecent or unworthy of divine inspiration had to be removed. Every verse was regarded as potentially independent of the others and capable of interpretation without any reference to its context. It was necessary largely to ignore the historical background. Rules were made whereby the natural, historical sense of any text could be evaded, and sometimes a quite unnatural, symbolic sense could be read in. A cautious, Torah-directed form of allegory was born. Several examples of it can be found in the New Testament.1-Cambridge History of the Bible Vol 1, pg 412.

>After all, in their exegesis the early Church theologians neither received the Bible as a 'Bible without notes' nor interpreted it in a vacuum. They received along with the Bible a tradition of interpreting it for a worshipping community and they proceeded to interpret it for a worshipping community. The study of the Bible as a scientific discipline to be carried on for its own sake was very far from their thought, and at all times has been, one suspects, a mere will-o'-the-wisp. This does not mean that the Fathers sacrificed everything for the sake of the edification of the faithful or for the consistent articulation of a doctrinal system. They sacrificed too much for these ends, but they were not unconscious of limits and controls on this process imposed by the Bible itself. Their purpose in exegesis was nevertheless purely practical, and we do not understand their exegesis until we understand this. They began the story of the Church's relations with the Bible, in which the Bible and the life of the Church were to interact for all the centuries to come, each correcting, deepening, fertilising the other. They inaugurated the Church's dance with the Bible, fancifully perhaps, but not irresponsibly, perhaps erratically, but at least gaily.-Cambridge History of the Bible, Vol 1, pg 453.

I'm so sorry Protestants but there's no Sola Scriptura in Early Christianity from the beginning.

I feel like the term "Worship" is too vague and can mean different things in different contexts. We do pray to Our Lady and ask for her intercession. We do deeply respect and honor her. However, we do not consider her to be God. She is a human, God's greatest creation but a creation nonetheless.

Catholics worship Mary. She's in your prayers, she's depicted and literally prayed at constantly. And then you accuse Orthodox Christians of worshiping saints. It's absurd. They worship saints less than you worship Mary. If you want to tell me you only venerate her, you're just splitting hairs.

If you only venerate Mary, then you also only venerate God. You treat them exactly the same. Think on the times your church references Mary and the times they reference God. With Catholics, you can literally exchange the words "Mary" and "God" and it won't seem strange.

In tongues as it is in megachurches

Our Book of Sovereign James, who art bound in leather,

with iron gall are made thine words, on a press, by no quill of papist monk.

Give us this day our daily division of pronouns between thy and you, and forgive us for considering douay-rheims, as we forgive the papists for denying henry his wife.

And lead us not into the temptations of non-textus-receptus translations, but deliver us from vulgate. For yours are the cords and the vellum and the square set type of gutenberg, forever. Amen.

anyway, there is a reason Protestants broke off from Catholics. They had lost their way. They no longer saw the Light.
same with early Christians. They corrupted the message and the Word of the Lord. Just because a group of people that were on this planet before us did things a certain way doesn't make it the right way to do things.

anyway, I don't really care enough about this because Protestants in this day and age are just as misguided as their Catholic brethen. the Protestant movement was promising in its early days but then it ended up being shite.

I think the protestant argument would be that /you/ are heretics. Over the years, the Catholic church hasn't preserved some sacred 'Christian way.' Historically, the Catholic church has been a powerful agent of change in Christianity. Catholicism is bogged down by revisionist appendices and extended literature (seven deadly sins, for example) and by the time the Protestants decided to split off, had served as a political institution rather than a religious one for hundreds of years.

If you call being a money-grubbing political machine "the preservation of Christianity," I don't want to be a Christian.

Catholics follow the Holy trinity we Worship God the father, son and Holy spirit but praying to the Virgin Mary, the Saints or even dead relatives is just like having a chat or asking a favor.

All being a protestant means is that your church is from the Catholic, western tradition, but broke away from the hierarchy. That runs the gambit. I won't sit here and tell you that all Protestant churches are better than the Catholic church, but I will easily tell you that some are.

but I don't identify with Protestants either. I do think there are aspects of Catholicism that aren't quite right. And same goes for the Protestant belief. I tend to criticise both and you're not going to offend me by lumping me with one group. I don't really identify with either one.

Great, now stop taking singular verses out of context and using that to bash others. You should be warm and welcoming in the spirit of ecumenism so you draw them by attraction into the Catholic faith.

See above. Did the Blessed Virgin Mary run around calling people "protocucks"? No. Did Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, or Pope St. John Paul II? No.

Promote the truth with genuine love, condemn heresy where you find it, explain why its flawed, don't resort to using religious differences as a bludgeon to try and hurt others. That's not what is taught in the Catholic Faith.

But Christianity is not polytheistic, so they don't qualify as Gods. There is only one, triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). Then the Saints and Angels who were created by him and recieve grace from him, through the Virgin Mary, who can intercede on our behalf.

If a polytheist would call them gods is aside from the point, because Christians don't recognize them as such.

Protestants did pop out from the ground and Americans who were descendants of the so called pilgrims are able to recognize that they didn't exist prior to the Natives there.

The beliefs of the Natives and of the Pilgrims are also different.

Same with Protdumbos and Early Christians

Protdumbos are a movement that pop out from the ground during the Reformation with its seeds sowed prior in the Medieval age.

Their beliefs and doctrines are in contradiction to Early Christian Doctrine and the writings of the Church Fathers.

No where from history do we find any evidence or signs of Protestant beliefs being propagated by the Early Christians. But we do find similarities between them and the Gnostics

Tertullion fell into heresy the same as Marcion. And he, unlike the Blessed Virgin Mary, wasn't perfect. He didn't say all Marcionites were Marciocucks. He explained why it was wrong.

It's just as absurd to say Catholics are the original inhabitants of Christianity. It's even absurd to say they've been there longer.

Moreover, Catholics' ideas and traditions have changed over time. Why does keeping a name for a long time give you the right to be the masters of the Christian tradition? Protip: it doesn't.

I understand the difficulties of keeping a calm head during debate, but I assure you it's to your benefit as well as mine.
I would argue that they were sown earlier. There have always been doctrinal difference between Germanic and Romance Christians. Aryanism for example. Even if that connection weren't valid, the history of Germanic cultures that assuredly influences Protestantism (as Romance cultures influence Catholicism) is as old as any other.

>memeing that Jesus founded the Catholic church
There's no real evidence for this. As for an historian should be concerned, this is a myth.

I don't personally believe in sola scriptura. I already said that. But I do believe revising the bible to remove late medieval influences is sensible, assuming you don't believe in the divinity of the Catholic Church.
>>
>>53598527
Arians aren't Protestants!

>Even if that connection weren't valid, the history of Germanic cultures that assuredly influences Protestantism (as Romance cultures influence Catholicism) is as old as any other.
Just because something influenced "X" does it mean that it is "X". It's just that whoever came up with "X" got inspiration or influences from that something. And again, the point is that Protestantism is an innovation to Christianity, not Genuine.

Let that sink into your brain for a fucking moment.

>There's no real evidence for this. As for an historian should be concerned, this is a myth.
All I did was simply showed similarities between the Early Church and Catholicism.

>But I do believe revising the bible to remove late medieval influences is sensible, assuming you don't believe in the divinity of the Catholic Church.

I think that's a sweeping generalisation. As I've said, there are a ton of different takes on Christianity that fall under the name "Protestantism." I think modern American Presbyterianism is pretty on the money, and I laud Episcopalians for retaining elements of Catholicism while doing away with structure, which I consider innately un-Christ-like

>Catholicism is a lot closer to true Christianity than Protestantism
See above.

>Citations needed faggot
It's not that I need to provide one, it's that you do. There isn't any real evidence to suggest there was a centralised hierarchy from an early point on.

>Your page screencap
Plenty of Protestants have churches run by groups of elders with one individual being more prominent. If Jesus left no instruction for how his church should be built (which, contrary to Catholic myth, he didn't) would it not be most sensible to retain the structure that Jesus saw no problem with? If you accuse Protestants of running Frankenstein shit shows, why give me evidence that the Catholics distorted the way things were done in the time of Christ by doling too much power to a central administrator?

Calvinism is ironically closer to Gnostics who also believe in Predestination and see no significance in the bread and wine in the Eucharist.

Puppet scum.

>I laud Episcopalians for retaining elements of Catholicism while doing away with structure
Wow...stop embarrassing yourself. Anglicans and Episcopalians have the same structure as Catholicism with Bishops, Archbishops and all that shit.

>There isn't any real evidence to suggest there was a centralised hierarchy from an early point on.
You mean like the Jerusalem Church with James on top? Fuck off!

>Plenty of Protestants have churches run by groups of elders with one individual being more prominent.
Nope, false. That sort of structure is the primitive version of modern Catholic hierarchy dumbass! The prominent individual is the fucking leader who is in charge. Kinda like the Bishop being the head of the priests!

>If Jesus left no instruction for how his church should be built (which, contrary to Catholic myth, he didn't) would it not be most sensible to retain the structure that Jesus saw no problem with?
You mean the one which is basically the primitive version of the Catholic Church's structure?

>If you accuse Protestants of running Frankenstein shit shows, why give me evidence that the Catholics distorted the way things were done in the time of Christ by doling too much power to a central administrator?
Here you are being moronic. Remember, I never even said Catholicism is free from innovations. The point is that Catholicism is simply closer compared to Protestantism which is just pure shit!

Insofar, none of my arguments addressed and no proofs shown that the Church Fathers and the Early Church had Protshit beliefs. Why? Because they were new shit added!

My biggest kek. Jesus established the church that later evolved into 5 patriarchates, that formed the Pentarchy (Rome, Constantinople, Alexandria, Jerusalem and Antioch)
With the fall of the latter 3 into muslim hands, only Rome and Constantinople remained.
Then, the patriarch of Rome (a.k.a. the pope) went power hungry and decided he was more important than the patriarch of Constantinople.
Thus, the catholic church is as old as the orthodox church.
The oldest surviving branch of christianity is the coptic church, which is old as fuck.

You're not supposed to just sin on purpose knowing you can go confession, because then you are not really sorry.
It counts when you try not to sin and stay close to God, but in a moment of weakness or whatever you sin. Afterwards you seek forgiveness and try not to do it again. You will at some point, but to put it simply it's the effort that counts.

It can be a vicious cycle. And in that case, it's up to the sinner to try and put a stop to it.

I had a problem with watching porn and jacking off. I would do it every day, and eventually say "I need to put a stop to this because it's making me feel like shit, and disrupting my faith." Then within a week I would say "Okay, I can masturbate because that's not a sin in itself, but no porn." But then before long I was making allowances – "I'll look at photos but no videos" – and back to my old self again. And repeat again and again.
There came a time where I had to draw the line and admit that masturbation was the cause of my sins and weak faith, and it had to stop.
>>
>>53604574
God knows humans are too weak to resist sinning, and his love and forgiveness are infinite.
You keep fucking up, but God doesn't give a shit so long as you're actually truly sorry and make an effort to not be such a piece of shit.
