From the Roman Catholic perspective,...Yes. Exactly right. Glad you understood that.
...which is also not supported by the other catholic churches in addition to the Protestants, which you neglected to mention.Sorry you missed the very clear mention of the Protestant view here. Merry Christmas and May Our Lord Bless you and yours on this, His Nativity.
But not mentioned was the other branches of the catholic church.
Wouldn’t that essentially negate your assertions against the Protestants, while essentially begging the question of why you are not mentioning the positions of the other catholic churches in the interest of full disclosure?
