Jewish and Roman Catholic Protestants

The Jew protests that the Christian has set up a mediator, Jesus Christ, between God and man, while the Reformers of the 16th century, the first “protestants,” accused the Roman Catholic Church of setting up “a mediatorial caste between God and man — to obtain by works, by penance, and by money the salvation which is the free gift of God — such is Popery” (HISTORY OF THE REFORMATION OF THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY by J. H. Merle D’Aubigné).

Jews and Roman Catholics will protest again: “We are not wrong,” which they are. There is indeed a mediator between God and man ; only one: Jesus Christ, the God-man.

  1. I protest against this: ‘Jews and Roman Catholics will protest again: “We are not wrong,” WHICH THEY ARE . . . ‘ [my caps] Raphael, you cannot know this.

      • Dogma is not the same as knowledge. The Gospel is not the same as knowledge. But what is knowledge? It would be easier to answer, ‘What s life?’ I do not know what can and cannot be known. Nor does anyone.

  2. Interesting. If we are to be Protestants, may it be because we protest in defense of the Biblical Gospel and not just Protestants in name only or merely reactionary
