I have three questions for my Protestant/Evangelical/Reformed/Anglo-Catholic/Pentecostal/non-RC Western Christian brethren!
These questions aren’t the beginnings of a debate, and I’m not going to come back at you with OH MY GOODNESS COULD YOU BE MORE WRONG????
So please, feel free to write what actually think. And if you’ve never thought about these questions, please tell me that too.
Catholic compatriots, please DO NOT argue in the comments below, even (particularly) if you think people are spectacularly wrong. I don’t care if you’re St Francis de Sales himself, this is not the time. There is a time for rigorous debate, but there is also a time for listening.
Listening time starts NOW. (And this is ma blog, no?)
Ok, so my three questions are:
What was the purpose of the Reformation?
Is the Reformation over? (i.e. has it achieved it’s purpose?)
When will the Reformation be over? (i.e. what will achieving it’s purpose look like?)
Protestants, please, let me know what you think and how you understand the Reformation — I’m curious, listening and love you all to bits!
Catholics, if you have Protestant friends who might be interested, please consider sharing this post with them. I want as many perspectives as I can get my hands on!
