It astound me how Catholics continue to make such claims and then one can read the Catholic dictionary New Advent about how the Early Church Fathers were ignorant on matters of the atonement, adoption, judgment and other important doctrinal issues or reject works on matters of predestination or the inerrancy of scripture. And today Catholics no longer believe that scripture is any more important than writings coming out of the Vatican-a view NEVER shared by the Early Fathers. Catholic doctrine today looks more like Constantinople than it does Rome.
Early Protestant writings such as John Calvin quoted extensively from the Early Church Fathers. In fact, it was because Rome had deviated so much from the Early Fathers that Protestants had to go back to their writings which provided much of the framework of Protestantism.
This statement is simply a lie.
“This statement is simply a lie. “
Nope, and they ripped apart the Bible in their efforts to deceive.
Early Protestant writers like Calvin were HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of years AFTER CHRIST!!!!! WHY the heck can’t you believe the FIRST PERSON ACCOUNTS??? Do you NOT believe that the BIBLE is the WORD of GOD??????? Then you are IGNORING what GOD SAID ABOUT HIS CHURCH!!!
The Reformers quoted from the Fathers only to reject their authority in favor of their own reading of Scripture.
