Protestants say they are Christians.
The Bible says: “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but not do what I command? (Luke 6:46)
What does Christ command?
Jn. 20:21-23 - Jesus said to them again,“Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”
Christ sent the Apostles to forgive sins in His name. Protestants do not confess sins to a Priest as Christ says.
John 6:53-56 - Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.
For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.
Christ says Eat His Flesh and Drink His Blood in Communion, the Eucharist. Protestants do not believe Christ in this verse and do not believe it is the Real Presence of Christ in communion. They say it is only a symbol which is not in the Bible.
Matthew 16:18-19 - And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Protestants start their own Churches and do not believe Christ founded a Church. Christ founded the Catholic Church.
When a Pastor teaches and says it is the Word of God, much of what they teach is not in the Bible.
When a Pastor says what Catholics teach is not biblical; it is Biblical as shown in these scripture verses.
We must be Christians in our lives not just in words. We must do what Jesus Christ commands as taught in the Bible.
