      Protestants say no. They say that praying to saints undermines Christ’s unique mediatorship, pointing to 1 Timothy “There is one God and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus.” They think asking the saints to intercede for us is in direct conflict with this verse.

This is an indispensable set of volumes not only for Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Christians but also for Western Catholic Christians, whether Roman, Anglican or Lutheran or, indeed, all Christians, including Protestant Christians, who revere the Saints of the Church/5(4).

True Reformers explores in detail the leaders who led the Church’s rebirth from the ashes of Renaissance decadence and the turbulence and confusion caused by the Protestant Reformation. The saints of the Catholic Reformation show us just how powerful—and beautiful—is the human heart’s free response to God’s generous grace.

Schools used to be both public and Protestant and filled with peace, but without Protestantism, schools have become public and filled with violent protesters. It is true that public Protestant schools were a little harsh and a lot successful, but the public secular schools today are extremely soft and not successful at.

Excerpted from: "History of the Christian Church": Volume III, Nicene and Post-Nicene Christianity, A.D. Chapter VII, P. (§ ) (Edited for Length). Seriously, we Baptists were like most Protestants in that we didn’t think much about saints.

I thumbed through a lost-and-found Bible once that added the title to. This is an incomplete list of Christian saints in alphabetical order by Christian name, but, where known and given, a surname, location, or personal attribute (included as part of the name) may affect the ordering.

One list says there are canonized Roman Catholic saints (who have been through the formal institutional process of canonization), although some give numbers in the thousands.

Protestants separate themselves from Catholics on many doctrinal issues. While they share a belief in the Trinity and other core Christian beliefs, there is a marked difference between the Catholic and Protestant religions and their views on saints.

The multiplication of Protestant denominations and sects following the Reformation is a common talking-point for Catholic apologists and often a sore spot for Protestants. It’s a licit point for Catholics to raise—after all, Christ came to build one Church whose members would live and believe in unity with each another, not many churches.

In the Western Christian Church, the Feast of All Saints’ is observed on November 1st. Protestant churches often mark the occasion on the first Sunday in November. Stephen will observe All Saints’ on Sunday, November 4, at both morning worship services. As early as B.C.E., Celtic religions honored their dead through their [ ].

A Protestant Bible is a Christian Bible whose translation or revision was produced by Bibles comprise 39 books of the Old Testament (according to the Hebrew Bible canon, known especially to non-Protestants as the protocanonical books) and 27 books of the New Testament for a total of 66 books.

Some Protestants use Bibles which also include 14 additional books in a section known. Therefore the Protestant Old Testament contains 39 books whereas the Roman Catholic Old Testament contains 46 books and includes sections of common books not included by Protestants.

The New. We Protestants need more saints. The Roman Catholics have more t canonized saints. By my count, we Protestants have as few as five. I don’t mean “saint” in the Pauline sense, a term that includes all of the people of God.

However, Protestants almost universally are reluctant to actually ‘pray’ to saints: for Protestants, prayer is a manifestation of worship and worship is strictly reserved to God.

There is no sense of the verb ‘to pray’ as a synonym of the verb ‘to ask’. Protestants are exactly that protest-ant. They protest constantly. Catholic believe that when we die, it is possible for us to be resurrected and be alive in Christ.

Protestants protest against that by trying to get you to believe that when you di. The book includes an extensive and informative introduction by W.H. Auden, a foremost 20th century poet. Fremantle's effort of culling out and highlighting the works of sixty-seven prominent Protestants writers clearly illustrates their own mystical experience of the Divine.

I think so - although perhaps not in the same way that Catholics do. Many protestants believe in the power of intercessory prayer (the Bible teaches this, in fact) - so we believe we can pray for others and the prayers of others (particularly the righteous) is a powerful form of intercession for others.

Overall, “Converting the Saints” provides an easy-to-understand overview of the relationship between Protestant Christians and Latter-day Saints in the early 20th century.

The book doesn’t contain any violence, sexual content or inappropriate language. While Protestant readers may remain unconvinced about the place of saints in their faith, they will also come away with a deeper understanding of, and sympathy for, why saints play an important.

Since that time the term has been used in many different senses, but not as the official title of any church until it was.

Saints, Sacrilege & Sedition by Eamon Duffy - review. You wouldn't expect Duffy to write a book about Protestants, because he is writing a book. The prayers of the saints and angels rise to God, in the Book of Revelation, like the sweet aroma of incense.

Hahn tells the stories of several saints (and several angels too) in a way that’s fresh and new. The saints are spiritual giants but with flesh-and-blood reality.

Protestants generally make little to no mention of the saints in worship and have no rituals related to the saints. Some Christian denominations, such as Lutherans and Episcopalians, name churches after saints and recognize some saints' days, but they do not canonize saints or emphasize the intercession of saints.

Protestant worship service. In addition, it might be beneficial to use outside volunteer groups representing different faith traditions to provide a variety of service styles and formats.

These services, however, should not replace the Protestant, or general Christian, worship service led by the chaplain. The book has been criticised on a number of levels but it’s still revolutionary in the way that it offered us a functionalist account of what’s going on with the cult of saints.

It’s about, among other things, the way that private customs of veneration of the dead were made public by bishops, how the very special dead were given central.

The Catholic Bible has seven books and parts of two others in the Old Testament that are not found in Protestant Bibles 1. Catholics refer to these books as the Deutercanonical 2 books while Protestants refer to them as apocryphal3 books. The books in question are the following: Tobit Judith The Book of Wisdom Sirach (also called Ecclesiaticus).

Apocryphal books include the Book of Tobit which mentions the Archangel Raphael. While Protestants accept only what is found in the Bible, the Catholic Church also accepts church traditions and. 2 Further, he promoted the beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to his sons.

He led his sons in the reading of Scripture (presumably including the Book of Mormon), and in daily prayer. He had one son baptized as a Mormon, and one enrolled in Boy Scouts at.

St. Athanasius did seem to lower the status of the deuterocanonical books somewhat, but not to a sub-biblical level, as noted by my good friend Gary Michuta, in his excellent book.
