[quote:2s77o1by]I see what you mean about traditional churches. Mine couldn’t exist, frankly, if there had not been the Roman church first. True, isn’t it?[/quote:2s77o1by]
For sure. ” title=”Wink” />
[quote:2s77o1by]Jon, I have come to the conclusion, after half a century of life, that there isn’t a nickle’s worth of difference between the major Christian groups. That will likely provoke response, too, but it is an honest statement.[/quote:2s77o1by]
Yes, this is going to get a response. ” title=”Very Happy” />
My opinion is that it might seem that way from the outside looking in, but when you get down to the nitty-gritty there are some stark contrasts.
For instance, the number of sacraments, who can be ordained, who can receive communion, authority and other things.
I’m going to assume that by traditional churches we are talking about Catholic, Episcopalian, Lutheran, Presbyterian and Methodist.
