All the Different Angles-Vlog 1

Although it is my opinion that the Catholic Church most truly sticks to the way God meant the church to be, I think the one positive effect of the Reformation (I don’t know, there could be more, but it’s mostly negative from where I stand) is that there are different characteristics of the Christian life accentuated in various denominations. As you know from my last post, I think it’s sad the church is so split up, but there is at least this small benefit to reap from the pieces. I think that the Catholic Church, which preserves the fullness of the deposit of faith, could benefit from further integrating some of the highlighted virtues from other denominations as we work towards the goal of a unified church.

The video below is a panel hosted by Biola University dedicated to the celebration of denominational diversity (or at least the one positive I’ve mentioned) in which I participated. The beauty of Anglicanism, the enthusiasm of Pentecostalism, and other fruits of the greater Christian body are highlighted here. Enjoy!

  1. Your words > “Reverence of mary.”

    Where is this in Scripture, KJV please?

    I did not watch the whole video.
    Please get a bible for yourself somewhere and get the truth for yourself and stop surrounding yourself with liars and others who really are not Christian are deceived themselves, as you are.

    1. From the KJV:
      Luke 1:48 “For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.”

      Luke 1:41-42 “And it came to pass that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: and she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is fruit of thy womb.

      Whatever you want to call reverance (and admittedly some of the cultural traditions in Catholic countries really do elevate Mary higher than God, which is idolatry I think can both agree) but at least calling Mary, “Blessed” is very biblical. Indeed the KJV says that the Holy Ghost filled Elisabeth when she proclaimed it.
