Before i begin this post, i would like to clarify that both Protestantism and Catholicism are under Christianity. Protestants are uncommonly known as Unorthodox Christians. If you know what Unorthodox means, Good. Next time, you talk about Christianity be sure to further explain if you’re talking about Protestantism or Catholicism because they are not quite different, they are VERY different. 🙂
There sure are good protestants around! I have seen many good protestants but at the same time i have seen really bad ones. Most of the time, in this blog if i am mentioning about protestants, it can only refer to two things. Either i’m referring to Protestantism in general and their doctrines OR those protestants who always try to proselytise illegitimately, the same ones who think that “feeling good/having fun” is equivalent to worship and reverence, the same ones who thinks that the fuzzy-feeling they get is equivalent to God’s presence, the same ones that force you into a situation where you have no choice but to join them.
Arrogance if you may like to call it. Don’t know what arrogance is ? Wiki calls it excessive pride, Dictionary.com calls it an offensive display of superiority or self-importance. What a perfect word to describe this group of people. Note that im not referring to the good protestants. Yes, i may not have the rights to say that these jumpings/going-crazy is NOT worship. What about reverence then? God feels worshipped because people are enjoying themselves?
Two days ago, i was at my paternal grandparents place. My two aunts were complaining about the protestant relatives that we have and of cause the other typical protestants we see in Singapore. These distant protestant relatives brought my aunt to their church and my aunt told me she felt super uneasy and decides to leave, before she can leave, she had people questioning her about why she leave. My aunt can even tell me that they had tactics (which protestants don’t realise how offensive it is). Anyway my paternal relatives are mostly Buddhist.
You may ask me then, how to evangelise without bringing them to church and not offend them ? The first thing you must do is to be able to convince them that your faith is true. But the fact remains that protestants (in general) are NOT able to convince you. They don’t even know where the Bible comes from. They don’t even know why they believe in the Bible in the first place. Because their so-called pastors tell them to ? This refer to believing WHATEVER their founder believes in. How then, can i believe that protestantantism is true ?
There are many good protestants that i’ve known but the good ones have to realise that the bad ones are tarnishing the image of Christianity.
