Hmmmm ... I must make a decision! Shall I follow a self-admittedly fallible set of beliefs termed Protestantism, or a self-admittedly infallible set of beliefs termed Catholicism?
If I follow Protestantism, I'm likely to be wrong. Therefore, it shouldn't matter to stay a Catholic, since even though Protestants think me wrong, they think themselves wrong too. At worst, we are all wrong together, just on different things, and God will forgive us of the blessed muddle. At best though, we Catholics are right, and Protestants are in for a tough surprise at the judgement.
So no matter who is right, there is no harm in being a Catholic, but if Catholics are right, being a Protestant would be deadly.
Pinging the troops ... both camps! I'll put on the first pot of coffee.
Shall I follow a self-admittedly fallible set of beliefs termed Protestantism, or a self-admittedly infallible set of beliefs termed Catholicism?
So, ... the choice is between one group who, upon finding that they may be in error in a point, is willing to concede the error and correct it ... or another group who isn't even willing to consider the possibility that they might be wrong.
Sounds like the difference between a modern-day Buick and an Edsel to me.
Oh, by the way ... there is no set of beliefs termed Protestantism, either fallible or infallible ... except, perhaps, ... let's take a look at the Word of God and see what He has to say about it.
