Why don’t Protestants share more Catholic beliefs?


Why don’t Protestants share more Catholic beliefs.  They believe in The Trinity, The Divinity of Jesus, the immortality of the soul, the need for Baptism, the coming Final Judgment, Heaven, and hell.

They are close to being Catholics!

Sadly, they do not believe that Jesus only Founded One Church when He Decreed one time, to one man:

“I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.”

Protestants also disregard Catholic teaching about the need to receive Absolution from those whom Jesus empowered:  “Those whose sins you forgive on earth are forgiven in Heaven.”

Protestants do not believe that Catholic priests are able to Absolve sins or to provide The Miracle of Transubstantiation at every Catholic Mass since The Last Supper.  They disregard  the clear call to Catholic Communion that Jesus repeated 14 times:  “If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.”

Can those who do not receive Catholic Communion have “life in” them?  Can their souls get into Heaven?

Some are saved.   The Only Church Jesus Founded is clear:  “Those of good will who are not Catholic through no fault of their own may be saved.”

Many Protestants do not know that Jesus Founded The Catholic Church.  Many are surrounded by Protestant family, friends, and culture.  It is not always their “fault” they don’t believe in Jesus enough to make belief more meaningful by obedience.

Protestants are taught that belief in Jesus is all that’s necessary.  Even those of good will do not know that Jesus makes it clear about who may get into Heaven:  “You are My friends if you obey My commands.”

Why don’t Protestants share more Catholic beliefs?  We haven’t been doing as good a job as we could in showing the need to add obedience to belief and help our neighbors be among His obedient “friends”.
