Although, as an American, I am a great admirer of the Protestant-influenced culture which created this country, as well as the zeal and Biblical scholarship of many Protestant denominations and individual Protestants, I am forced to conclude that the Protestant Faith is based on faulty and selective Biblical interpretation as well as erroneous reasoning. While Protestants can of course be good Christians, at its heart Protestantism is religious anarchy which will lead many devout souls to perdition. Jesus prayed that we may "all be one"(JN 17:21) and that there may be "one flock, one shepherd" (JN 10:16). I believe that He established a Church against which "the gates of Hell shall not prevail" (MT 16:18). I don't believe Jesus intended for Christianity to be an eternal debating club, which is the condition to which Sola Scriptura relegates our religion. I'll be glad to try to answer any questions you have, although my special interest is in the Faith/Works question, the question of the Bible's authority, and the dangers of Pentecostalism

Experience in the area

Lifetime interest in comparative religion, especially among Christians.
