Calvin: Inside the Protestant Mind, Part I: What Was the Reformation and Why Did It Happen?
The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that we are to accept with respect and affection our brothers and sisters in Christ who are outside the Catholic Church. Of course this doesn't mean we don't hope and pray that Christ's Church will one day be united again. But if we're to win our Protestant friends and family members back to the Church, we have to understand them. In this series of three talks, we use the life of the greatest theologian of the Reformation, John Calvin, as a window into the Protestant mind, so that we might understand how our separated brothers and sisters think. In this first, talk, without going so far as to convert you to Protestantism (some say I come close) I offer as sympathetic a presentation as I can of what the Reformation was all about and why it happened. At it's heart, what was the Reformation? And why did so many Catholics at that particular time in history reject the authority of the Church to embrace a Bible only Christianity? How much of it was the Church's fault? What did Catholics at the time say about all this? Join us and find out.
