"Even if you should have countless guides to Christ, yet you do not have many fathers,
for I became your father in Christ Jesus
through the gospel.  Therefore, I urge you,
be imitators of me."

~ St. Paul the Apostle's  admonishment to the Corinthians
1 Cor 4:14-17

Martin Luther taught:

"Be a sinner and sin vigorously; but even more vigorously believe and delight in Christ who is victor over sin, death and the world.... It is sufficient that we recognize through the wealth of God's glory the lamb who bears the sins of the world; from this sin does not sever us, even if thousands, thousands of times in one day we should fornicate or murder."

~ Letter to Philip Melanchthon, August 1, 1521

Jules Feiffer, humorist satirizing Luther's position:

"Christ died for our sins. Dare we make his martyrdom meaningless by not committing them?"


"Although Protestantism from its inception was anti-Catholic and remains so to this day,

the Catholic Church on the other hand is not anti-protestant."

"If the Catholic Church is not christian ...than neither is Protestantism
which inherited the bulk of its theology from Catholicism."

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA:
The first Baptist congregations were organized in the beginning of the seventeenth century. Almost at the very start, the denomination was divided into "Armenian", or "General" Baptists, so named because of their belief in the universal character of Christ's redemption, and "Calvinistic" or "Particular" Baptists, who maintained that Christ's redemption was intended for the elect alone. The origin of the General Baptists is connected with the name of John Smyth (d. 1612), pastor of a church at Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, which had separated from the Church of England

Pius XII and the Holocaust - In a time when few spoke up in defense of the Jews, the author of this website provides compelling evidence that Pope Pius XII was not 'Hitlers Pope' after all - as John Cornwell writes in his book of the same name. On the contrary, Pope Pius XII was quite an outspoken defender of the Jews, and opponent of Hitler and his Nazi war machine. He spoke for the Jews and their horrific plight, while the rest of the world remained silent! He aided the Jews as much as was possible, to escape as Hitlers' invading armies as they swarmed like a plague all over the Vatican City and Europe.
