Is the Reformation Over? Key Differences between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism 500 Years Later

Date recorded: 22 May 2016 | Speaker: Gregg Allison | Event: ELF Pre-Forum Seminar
Topic: Theology


This talk will outline both the commonalities between Catholicism and Protestantism (e.g., the doctrines of revelation, God, the Trinity, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, humanity, sin) as well as the differences between the two (Scripture and its relationship to Tradition, the Apocrypha, interpretation of Scripture, the image of God, original sin, the role of Mary, the nature and role of the church, the sacraments and how they work, baptism, the Lord’s Supper/Eucharist, salvation, and purgatory). Undergirding these differences are the two axioms of Catholic theology: the nature-grace interdependence and the Christ-Church interconnection.
