Great article. Bookmark.
Beautiful, just beautiful. Thank you so much for posting this. My best friend is an evangelical; I love her dearly. Her love of Christ really made a huge impression on me and helped me to love our Lord on a more personal level. I will always be grateful to her for that.
It saddens me beyond relief to see the hateful bickering that goes on between Catholics and Protestants on this site. I hope one day we will all be united. United, we can be a powerful force against evil in this world which so desperately needs the light of our Divine Savior.
Now if the author of this piece would refrain from taking gratuitous slaps at evangelicals maybe we could get some real work done.
Newman begins by restating his opponents best case against Catholicism ... and his opponent is almost identical theologically to today's evangelicals.
After decimating Catholic belief from the evangelical point of view, he then rebuilds it step-by-step in an intellectual tour de force which takes accounts of all aspects of humanity ... not just the hyper-rational intellectual aspect.
I recommend it to everyone.
The last edition of First Things talked of the Death of Protestant America. The author said it was basically between the Catholics and the Evangelicals.
My fear is that there are not enough orthodox Catholics and to many Rick Warren style Evangelicals to turn this country back from the abyss.
I skimmed it my Brother and I love the way it’s going. Looking forward to the discussion.
Actually, I believe the reason why Catholics and Evangelicals no longer are at odds with each other is simply because they’ve traded in their theology for a socialized gospel message. It is far more important to join forces on abortion or feeding the poor than it is to correctly teach the right understanding of the gospel. There isn’t much difference in the Church/church today than the American Red Cross.
What a wonderful, encouraging article!
Thank you for posting it!
I am a Christian whose vehicle is Catholicism. To put aside internal bickering would be a godsend.
Uh, no. John MacArthur, R.C. Sproul, Ravi Zacharias, William Lane Craig, JP Moreland, Gary Habermas, Alvin Plantinga...to name just a few, are some of the best minds in America, perhaps in the world...and they are all Evangelicals.
Some of us Protestants have also moved out of pietism and into the more rigorous neighborhoods of our own tradition. R. J. Rushdoony, the ArmEnian Calvinist, frequently cited, with respect, the work of Catholic scholars.
I haven't seen yet anything coming from the Catholic church that was or is effective...
With the apologetic movement hitting at the same time, Evangelicals were also confronted with Catholics who could argue from the Bible defending their faith and demonstrating the weaknesses of Evangelical interpretations of scripture.
Like crowning Mary with the title if Mediatrix and dispenser of Grace??? You couldn't defend nonsense like that even if Perry Mason was your Catholic attorney...
Evangelicals are now learning that only Catholicism has the intellectual resources to combat the present secular age.
Jesus said He wrote the Scripture to confound you intellectual giants...
There is nothing an Evangelical can do that will match the power of one World Youth Day.
That's true...A non Catholic wouldn't provide non Christian rock groups to lure the young, and then call it a spiritual happening...
It looks like this article was written for propaganda for CATHOLICS...
Anyone whose "mind is blown" by Scott Hahn...well, that statement speaks for itself.
The funny thing is that if this foolish book portends a real shift in position by the "evangelicals," it's occurring at a time when Ratzinger is tightening the reigns of his own denomination and pronouncing all Protestant churches as "defective."
Apparently people don't change much at all. Nobody expects the Inquisition.
Except for the Inquisitors.
It's probably good in some respects that this political agenda now has been made so explicitly obvious that none can deny it.
Colson should stick to his prison ministry with felons in need of the Gospel. He's clearly blind to those held captive outside the steel bars.
