    Well I’m not Roman Catholic, again that’s just as ignorant as certain Protestants who think Eastern Orthodoxy is Catholicism without a Pope.

    Well as I said in the beginning I dont want to cause a Catholic/Protestant war here, but there is One Church that can trace its origins to the Apostles.

    More like twelve...and that's not counting church bodies which can reasonably contend that by separating institutionally from some other body, but not to start a new religion, they are actually continuing with all that went before except for whatever corrections called them into existence, just like the famous "tree with branches" diagram that many churches like to use in order to show where they came from.

    But yes, some of the denominations that claim to have begun with the original churches (although not with the same name or beliefs or practices or polity) like to claim that theirs is the one and only true church--and never has changed anything. That tends to keep the members in line and also justifies whatever policies the denomination imposes upon them.

    Well, that comparison is oversimplified all right...but not all that far from the mark, if you think about it for a moment and also know what the beliefs and practices of each are.

    Not sure why anyone should be opposed.

    I see it becoming a microcosm of the arguments in every other forum.

    Not every argument, because it would be for protestants only.

    Calvinism vs Arminianism
    Pre-, Mid-, post trib rapture
    Or no rapture​
    Premillennialism vs amillenialism
    Or preterism​
    Real presence vs symbolism in communion
    Saturday vs Sunday
    Ok to celebrate Christmas and Easter; or not
    Water baptism salvic or not
    Cessationism vs Continuationism
    Types of music


    Those are all issues within protestant denominations.
    Isn’t that quite enough?

    Those arguments could all be had in the one forum.

    Just move those topics to their appropriate forums like they always do. For example, move the Sunday/Saturday sabbath threads to GT or its sabbath sub forum.

    That puts a HUGE additional load on the mods who are already overworked.

    Where does a person go then when they want a protestant discussion? Do they need to go to the MJ forums? Not if they are not MJ.

    General theology

    Or if it is a more fringe topic: Controversial theology

    So your objection is that it would be another GT? And whats the problem with a protestant only theology board?

    I don't see a problem either, just allow the guidelines to fall within the five solae is my imput. I think it would work out.
