Defending the Catholic Faith  (Part 3)

In our previous defense of the Catholic Faith, we defend the nature of God that we Catholics believed. Defending our faith also teaches others including the next generation. Today we defend other topics that the protestants usually criticized about us Catholics.

Defending the Catholic Faith  (Part 2)

Defending the Catholic Faith is a duty that we must fulfill including the priest and those who serve in the church. It is not only defending our soul from our persecutors but also strengthens the faith of those who listen during the defense, including our loved ones. Previously, we shared three topics about the Catholic Faith that we answered to defend it. Now we would like to share more:

Defending the Catholic Faith  (Part 1)

Catholicism is not just another religion in the world, but the religion that only Christ built upon St. Peter the apostle. But since this is the church that our Lord created, the devil will do anything to destroy it. Not just outside the church, but also from within. They will attack our Catholic faith and those who had a lack of knowledge which has a possibility to weaken its faith, either they will leave the church or chose not to believe in God. Many us are not knowledgeable about our Catholic faith, mostly to our generation today because of lack of Catechism that most churches are not providing anymore since Vatican II. We must defend our faith not just from other religion such as the Protestants, but also from our fellow Catholics whom are influenced by the Protestants and Modernist. As Catholics, our faith is important. This defense is not just for our own soul but also to others including our loved ones. In this article, we will provide things in our Catholic faith that we must defend.

The influence of the Protestants (Part 2)

As the world changes, the modern times have arrived and so is the modernism. The Protestants, in order to pull many faithful to their sect, choose to adapt modernism which results in the birth of the Born-Again Christians together with its prosperity doctrine. Many modernists including the clergy, wish to adapt and unite with the protestants which resulted in the Second Vatican Council. During these changes there are protestant influences which the church adapts including the Novus Ordo Mass. In the first part of this article, we enlist the first three of the influence of the Protestants. In this second part we will add another three:

The influence of the Protestants (Part 1)

If you are born during and after the Vatican II council, you may not notice the influence of the Protestants among us Catholics. When Martin Luther attacked the problem and corruption in the Catholic Church. He has the chance to fix it, but instead, he left the church and created his own. He started to attack the church and teaches heresy to the people. Which he detoured the path of the poor souls of the faithful from the Lord. Then those who he influenced started to build their own churches, including King Henry VIII who was once a defender of the Catholic Church against the protestant reformation, instituted the Anglican Church because the Church does not support his divorce. Protestanism were not built because of God, but because of earthly and human desire. In short, these protestants or born-again churches are not built by God, but by man.

The Born-Again Christians

When Martin Luther left the church and started the protestant movement, a number of heretics created their own churches, in the belief that they built the true church of God. They left the one, true, apostolic and Catholic Church that our Lord Jesus Christ has founded. Some of them even copied the rites and doctrines of the Catholic Church. As years passed, the Church entered modern world and “modernism”, as Pope Pius X said, brought evil to the faith. Protestants fully embraced Modernism. The use of ballad and rock music can now be used in praying and in worship. Sharing of life experiences is very common within the group and you will be asked "Have you accept Christ as your personal savior yet?" This is the Born-Again Movement, also called Born Again Christians and Evangelical Protestantism.

The Catholic Charismatic Movement

During the previous century and before Vatican II, the protestant become popular to people because of their modern approach, as the Catholic Church remains faithful to Traditions. When Vatican II Council started, many changes occurred to the church including the Holy Mass which becomes similar to the Protestants. Because this is the solution of the Vatican II Popes when modernism spread to the whole world. Even though a reform happened to the Church, the protestants still have their way to attract more people to join their false religion. This is when the Born-Again Christians was born. More popular music genre in their worship such as ballad and rock, Bible Studies and no more sacrifice such as kneeling when worshipping God, you can just raise your hand and sing along with the music. Some modernist priest tried to bring this method to the church such a Mass in TV where there is dancing and clapping, but some wants to remain its solemnity. But some faithful including lay ministers saw the methods of the Born-Again, they build an organization or movement for Catholics with protestant approach. They were called Catholic Charismatic Movement or Catholic Charismatic Renewal.

The Council of Trent

When the false teachings of Martin Luther spread all over Europe, many faithful left the Catholic Church and started building their own church or joined some protestant churches according to their liking. This event led to Counter-Reformation by starting the Council of Trent.

The Protestant Reformation

Our Lord Jesus Christ built His church upon St. Peter, the first pope of the Church. When our Lord ascended into heaven after His death and resurrection, He chose St. Peter to lead the apostles in spreading the Good News to all nation with the help of the Holy Spirit, one of the Three Persons of the Holy Trinity. But in the next centuries until, many denominations claimed that they are the true church or true Christians and some of them spread that the Church that our Lord built was already dead. It all started because of the Protestant Reformation

The Sanhedrin was the forum for the pharisees, who believed in the resurrection and in angels, and the saducees, who are akin to new theories and philosophies. All beliefs and philosophies concerning God and His creation are allowed to be expressed here.
