Many formerly trapped Catholics are being rescued by Christ and escaping the chains of Rome....

Absolutely true.
However, any affection, not to mention respect at all left for what after all is, along with the Orthodox tradition, the Mother Church?
King James and King Charles not Protestant enough for you?
The rapprochement between the Lutherans and the Romans not mentioned in your church's bulletin?
Any realization that you would not have your personal Bible at all had it not been preserved by those horrid Greeks and even worse Romans?

sacerdotalism, indulgences, mariolatry, rosaries, sacraments, rituals, etc. Guilty as charged, and so what?

.... salvation was granted by grace alone, through faith, and that not of themselves....

There you go again, agreeing with the Pope.

The Roman Catholic Church ... laden with pagan tradition? Well yeah, that's the Roman part. The Greek Orthodox Church, laden with Hellenistic pagan traditions? Well yeah, that's the Greek part. Authority, Tradition, Hierarchy, no religion ... even the various Protestant sects .... can exist without some of those elements in greater or lesser degree. Think Circus (another pagan concept). The tents and costumes may differ, but the elephant is the same.

Take your stand. Militantly convert as many as you can to your way of worship and praise. However, don't presume that those outside of your particular sect are any more or less Christian, or even saved, than yourself.

Already taken. And, unlike the attitude of Rome, only God can convert anyone to biblical Christianity. But, continue on with the candles, the chalice, the prada shoes, the pointy hats, and the incense...Rom. 9:16
