Roman Catholicism: A Worldview and a System


Roman Catholicism is a complex reality. A global view of Catholicism must take into account its doctrine, culture, and its institutions. It is a religious worldview which has been promoted throughout history by the ecclesiastical institution whose center is in Rome. Any analysis that does not take into account the fact that Catholicism is a system will fall prey to a superficial and fragmented understanding of the phenomenon. This talk compares and contrasts systemic vs. atomistic approaches to Roman Catholicism and demonstrates the need for an evangelical assessment to grasp the basic contours of this worldview and its system. This is part 2 of a 6-part series on engaging Roman Catholicism from an Evangelical perspective.
