How Do Catholics View Protestants

The title is kinda vague. Im curious about any views Catholics may have about Protestants. How come Catholics are Catholic and how come Protestants are Protestant. What the big differences are. Is there a common ground where both agree. Thank you.

Officially, there is much common ground. We share in a common baptism and can declare together that we are part of the Church, although not in communion. Generally speaking, we all accept at least a handful of Ecumenical Councils as binding on the faith. We profess Jesus as Lord, accept the same New Testament canon, and much more depending on what denomination of Protestant Christianity we are talking about.

I have no problem having friends who are Protestant.

However, you will find some Catholics (especially on the internet) who have not yet understood or accept that Protestants are also a part of the church or even Christian.

Hopefully not head on.

From the protestant point of view, there is some disagreement as to the importance of Mary and the treatment of sainthood and canonisation, the elevation of importance given to the papcy, sometimes with the hierarchical structure of the Roman Catholic church, and the role of salvation vs sanctification (are believers saved at conversion or is it an ongoing saving process throughout the lifetime?). These are issues about the concept of venal and mortal sin, the role of confession, etc.

In practice personally, I get along with Roman Catholics and don't often get into discussions of differences. I'm happy to discuss and agree to disagree. I'm also aware that Roman Catholics come with things to offer to the protestant arm of Christianity - for example, the loss of the arts to a lot of protestants due to a historical iconoclastic eschewment of images (though pentecostal Christianity certainly embraces the arts), the prevalence of carnal Christians due to the once-saved always-saved belief (personally I think we are saved at conversion and are also being sanctified each day as God makes us more like Him). The role of tradition and strong community that give a greater sense of respect in Roman Catholicism.

Amen! This is exactly true.

Generally speaking, we all accept at least a handful of Ecumenical Councils as binding on the faith.
Generally speaking, for the Protestant, the notion of a dogma being "binding" on a Christian is unheard of. On the other hand, it could be said that the teachings of many of the early Councils were descriptive of the true doctrine of Christ as revealed in the Scripture, but never "binding" in the same sense a Catholic would understand.

Remember, most Protestants adhere to 'sola Scriptura' (by Scripture alone), so, for them, councils can only be instructive, but never dogmatic.

We profess Jesus as Lord, accept the same New Testament canon, and much more depending on what denomination of Protestant Christianity we are talking about.
I went from Evangelical to Pentecostal to Lutheran to Catholic, so I can confirm this to be true. While virtually all have valid baptisms (except some Oneness Pentecostals who baptize in the name of Jesus only--I never got involved with these folks myself). The Evangelical and Pentecostal groups both had their own style of worship services that were extemporaneous but everything happened generally at the same time. The evangelical group I attended (where I was baptized) celebrated communion every Sunday but it was not sacramental in any sense. The Pentecostal group was very evangelistic (always doing "outreach") and there was no respect given to the beliefs of other Christians...Catholicism, in particular, was considered to be diabolical. After my family moved to another city, I kind of stopped going to church for a long time, though I still believed.

After we moved again, I spent a short time going to Mass and falling in love with it (yes, the Novus Ordo, even!). At the time, I couldn't deal with the really Catholic doctrines, like Mary and such, but I fell in love with the liturgy as well as the sacraments. I became a Lutheran because they had the closest liturgy to Catholic, a form of sacramental theology and had other doctrines I could live with (Calvinistic Double-Predestination and Limited Atonement have always bothered me).

Only when I saw Catholics who spoke of Jesus the same way I did...as though they knew Him in a real way did I consider investigating the Church and seeing whether or not I could take that step towards the Catholic Church.

I'm so glad I did.

I have no problem having friends who are Protestant.
Living and working where I do, I associate with people who are Sikh, Orthodox Jewish, Muslim, Russian Orthodox, Catholic, Non-denominational, etc.

[qote]However, you will find some Catholics (especially on the internet) who have not yet understood or accept that Protestants are also a part of the church or even Christian.[/quote]Ah, yes...the "Extra Ecclesia Nula Salus" (Outside the Church there is no salvation) crowd. Such a joy when encountered.

Catholics are Catholic and Protestants are Protestant based on what people believe to be the truth.

If you are asking how individuals view Protestants and Protestantism, I guess I will give my opinion. As far Protestantism is concerned, I believe it has no basis in Christian history, and is born out of arbitrarily invented doctrines (Sola Scriptura, etc) that Luther and others created based on cherry-picking bits of the Church Fathers as a knee-jerk reaction against the abuses of the Catholic Church.

For individual Protestants, that depends on the person, just like any other interpersonal relationship. When it comes to theology, I have respect for Protestants who are aware of what the Catholic Church actually teaches, and have rational reasons for disagreeing with it. I have no problems with Protestants who are nice and respectful, just like I have no problems with anyone who is nice and respectful.

I have little respect for people who are ignorant of what the Catholic Church teaches yet parade their knowledge around and go on a crusade to "save the Catholics." That little respect turns into no respect when they persist in ignorance after being corrected by numerous people, documents, and other sources. Why? 99.9% of the time, those people have anti-Catholic prejudice built into their personality. And it's always obvious to everyone but themselves or other people with the same personality.

most of my best friends are Protestant

I get along with Protestants and I respect them as brothers and sisters in Christ

Protestantism I am not a big fan of, but I do not want to be overly negative... i dunno

I lost a lot of protestant friends when I bacame Catholic. Even had my salvation questioned. Not all are like that but my faith is rarely discussed. They don't want to know it seems.

As far as how Catholics officially view protestants. We view them as brethern imperfectly united with the Church.

These links might help the OP as far as where Catholics are coming from & differences in belief.

Common ground - believing in the Lord Jesus.

As one particular Catholic, i feel somewhat sorry for what they are missing in the Eucharist...and other sacraments and that nobody in their family prays for them when they leave the mortal life.

I also dont see the point in attending Church if there is no Eucharist. Its the climax of Christ's life - a Sacrifice to make present [says the Koine Greek] and the Apostles said to do as often as possible.

For us, thru the ordained hands since the Apostles, we go to Mass to not only hear the word of God - but to partake in His Everlasting Body and Blood.
