“Find the dates.....this is a fact thread!”
More like an infantile opinion thread. Please show me where Jesus taught about indulgences, or said his mother was born sinless, and lived that way.
Not where your sect teaches it, but where Jesus said it.
I gave you facts. The fact that the RCC burned all the literature doesn’t now give the RCC the right to claim that they weren’t there. Stanislaus Hosius may or may not have said we were around for 1200 years, but he did equate the early Donatists to being Anabaptists and put anabaptists around Augustine’s era.
Anabaptists were not a unified grouping (just as Catholics aren’t today as you have strict latin rite Catholics, charismatic Catholics, liberal Catholics etc.,). But there were those whose beliefs were like Modern Baptists in groups such as the Waldensians, Donatists, Paulicians etc. We may not always have had the name, but we have been in existence since the beginning and the Apostles were in fact baptizers of adult believers.
36And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
37And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
38And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
