You have to understand that Eusebius is deluded in thinking he is an Catholic expert since he once was a Catholic. If he was a knowledgeable Catholic, he'd still be Catholic.

REPLY: Even Jesus himself chose a path of righteous anger toward the Money Changers in the Temple and proceeded to let them know why it was an abomination for them to have their own philosophy to do what they were doing. Paul in Galatians 1:1-10 sure didnt hold back when he said if any Teacher proclaims anything else but The Gospel for salvation...let them be accursed (eternally damned) , then, he even repeated it.

It isnt very loving not to correct someone who is walking in drastic error in the form of a different 'gospel' which cannot save if we really care about them . It is wrong and apathetic not to show them the error of their ways and to point out that their Teachers are heretics in accordance to The Bible (and not based on Ones opinion or personal bias....but on the objective BIBLE -- the Word of God whom both sides are supposed to be treating as the Truth Source) .





it is unchristian and prideful to think your way is the only true path to God and judgemental and really not loving--there are many ways to Him and various intrepretations to biblical passages

Catholics typically get along with Episcopals and Lutherans, and even better with eastern Orthodox religions, from what I've seen. The Greek Orthodox folks put their kids in Catholic schools without batting an eye instead of sending them to public school.

With the other Protestant sects, it's not a guarantee.

The more they bash, the more "hick" they are. That's what I see. Repeatedly.

where i come from , thier are little if any tensions between catholics and anglicans - episcopalians but more between catholics and presbyterians who are seen as much more rigidly dogmatic and orthodox , other protestant denominations would be too small to make any real impact

Red face I'm from a Catholic-Protestant marriage.

My dad is an African Methodist and my mom is a Catholic. I did sometimes go to African Methodist services as a little girl, but I consider myself Catholic.

My parents are divorced now, but they're still friendly with each other. My Protestant relatives accept me despite the fact that I'm not Protestant. I think it's better if we set aside our differences and get along.
