A common question and debate between Roman Catholics and Protestants is “Are Catholics Christians?” But that is not the best question. It should be “Is Roman Catholicism heretical and thus not Christian?”
This Areopagus Journal concludes as the title states, “The Reformation Was Not a Mistake” because in the past few years there has been some confusion generated by several formal movements to minimize the doctrinal and historical differences.
Five articles in the Journal address the major defining issues. One article demonstrates the fatal error of Catholicism’s denial of faith alone, another defends the doctrinal authority of scripture alone, another responds to the Roman Catholic Mary, another responds to their claims on the Pope’s authority.
And finally, there is an article examining the pros and cons of the recent documents, Evangelicals and Catholics Together and the Joint Declaration on Justification.
This journal presents crucial information
on the topic of the issue distilled by the authors
as an alternative for those without the time or the inclination
to read numerous books on the topic.
