The doctrine of Plenary Inspiration is a doctrine that says that all of a canon is inspired by the Holy Spirit not just certain parts like the Protestants believe. The church agrees with this doctrine saying that entire canons should be considered inspired by God and not just ones that are picked by the Protestants. Hodge makes a great argument for the Protestants throughout this essay as he describes the importance and the origins of the scriptures. He backs up his argeuement by talking about how the Holy Spirit inspired the scriptures and communicates through the Apostles.
This definitive Revelation of Christ , which was given to the apostles and continues now through the Church, is found in Sacred Scripture and Sacred tradition, as the Deposit of faith. In conclusion "God has entrusted to the Catholic Church all Revealed Truth" (Theological Flint) If a Christian Church has broken away from the Catholic Church it would take some of these truths but possibly not all of them, so "the fullness of truth" is a term that applies only to the Catholic Church. All religions are the same in a particular way, this is most likely due to their unity of faith. Although no religion is truly the same as the Catholic Church, even the churches created during the protestant movement. As St. Cyprian of Carthage stated "Outside the Church there is no salvation."
The main tenets of Roman Catholicism come from the New Testament: and say that God entered the world through incarnation of his son, Christ, or Jesus of Nazareth. Roman Catholics also attach a high importance to baptism, Eucharistic traditions, marriage, and the Sacrament of Reconciliation, to not cite all of them. Through their lives, roman Catholics live with the strong belief that “we were all created through God’s image”: which means that we were all created for a reason, and differently for a reason as well. The main belief revolves around the idea that we may all different but we are all equal in front of God’s eyes. Tolerance and love are two other main elements of
I will argue the latter. That the original meaning from the bible was to a have a single unified church under the primacy of the bishop of rome. This can be supported in three areas the historical, biblical, and theological reasoning. Before we jump into the wonderful world of church history I find it important to point out my own biases. I was raised a roman catholic and still currently practicing my faith.
There were various theologies of the sacrament of Holy Communion that were being debated during the Reformation. Among reformers there were conflicting views on transubstantiation, consubstantiation, infant baptism and Christ’s importance of being in communion overall. Some reformers and reformation events that appealed believers more than others were Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and the Council of Trent. Martin Luther was a German priest who rebelled against authorities of the Roman Catholic Church and initiated the start of the reformation. He rejected some of the traditional practices although he believed that the church was essential to the Christian doctrine.
A core teaching found throughout Christianity. However, the Bible is not taken into literal ideology, but in a more figurative manner. Another central figure in Christian belief is Jesus, found in the Trinity as the Son of God. However, the Catholics believe that He is an incarnation of God rather than a literal son of God. It is of Christian belief that Jesus is fully God and man, with a divine and human will found through the Biblical quote in John 10:30 “I and My Father are one.”.
The idea of salvation to Presbyterians is that salvation is reached through the grace of God, rooted in the deep faith of a person. Catholics believe in penance for sins through reconciliation. Presbyterians believe that penance is dealt with directly with God. Ultimately, Presbyterians believe that God’s truth was and is embodied in Jesus Christ, Lord, and Savior. One of Calvin’s beliefs included that of which God is God of state and nation and the state must be guided by his word.
The Christ-event is God's definitive self-disclosure, while Scripture and preaching are made to correspond to him as a faithful witness becomes the perfect statement according to Barth (Barth, 2003, p. 61). Barth’s opening thesis is a view that everything that can be known with confidence about God or divine things is known only or primarily by faith, as opposed to a coherent or cognitive. In addition, existential, in the sense that Barth affirms that scripture has an objective significance, even before considering it through faith and reason. According to Barth, “This circumstance is the simple fact that in the congregation of Jesus Christ, the Bible has specific authority and significance” (p. 56) and without the congregation it becomes only historical. It becomes important to uphold and defend the Bible’s authority and the power does not come from any simple measure employed by us individually.
