Check your facts. They do.<quoted text>
Clay, once again you take something simple and confuse it.
Duh!!!!! The word catholic means "universal."
Most Protestants defend the fact that Jesus started a UNIVERSAL church -- not the RCC.
Yes, Methodists use the term "catholic" in their creed -- but they do so with the traditional interpretation of "universal."
No Protestant believes Jesus stated the Roman Catholic church, except maybe your phony protestant friend.
THINK Clay!!! If they acknowledged the RCC as the only true church, then they wouldn't be Protestants would they!
Martin Luther: "we must concede to the Papist, that they have the word of God, we received it from them and without which, we would have no knowledge of it at all"
Pssst free, papist are the RCC.
Also my ex neighbors were Methodist (started by John Calvin) they do not deny the lineage from Pope Benedict to Saint Peter. True Protestants do not ignore basic history 101. although they deny the Papacy itself.
Your evangelical buddies invented something about 'Catholic' with a small c - separate from Roman Catholic. They like to re- write history like they do Christianity.
Learn to be a an accurate bigot Mr Free..
