Indulgences are not a factor anymore, so stop living in the past. As for Christ's saving blood, why don't you have an altar in your church? Mine does, and we hold up the great sacrifice of Calvary at every Mass just like Jesus instructed us to do. What do you have as worship, a sermon?
I urge you to be complete and correct about the teachings of the RCC.
Indulgences are still a factor. They still exist, and the practice still is approved by the church.
Also the doctrine for the use of indulgences, and recommendations, is established in the Council of Trent, Session XXV
It reads:"Whereas the power of conferring Indulgences was granted by Christ to the Church; and she has, even in the most ancient times, used the said power, delivered unto her of God; the sacred holy Synod teaches, and enjoins, that the use of Indulgences, for the Christian people most salutary, and approved of by the authority of sacred Councils, is to be retained in the Church; and it condemns with anathema those who either assert, that they are useless ; or who deny that there is in the Church the power of granting them.
In granting them, however, It desires that, in accordance with the ancient and approved custom in the Church, moderation be observed; lest, by excessive facility, ecclesastical discipline be enervated. And being desirous that the abuses which have crept therein, and by occasion of which this honourable name of Indulgences is blasphemed by heretics, be amended and corrected, It ordains generally by this decree, that all evil gains for the obtaining thereof,-whence a most prolific cause of abuses amongst the Christian people has been derived,-be wholly abolished."
There follows a second paragraph that addresses the abuse of indulgences, and I think it is important to recognize something about that.
I don't believe that it was the RCC's intend to sell indulgences the way Tetzel did. Tetzel went way overboard.
But let me be clear: The practice of indulgences was NOT the reason for the Reformation. Even Luther recognized that Tetzel went way overboard and it was the act of an individual.
What Tetzel did however triggered the question: How are people justified? And that became the major stumbling block that resulted in the Reformation.
I don't approve on Indulgences and I agree it is not longer widely practiced in the RCC...however it still is a valid practice officially recognized and approved by the RCC.
As for the altar.
We Protestants believe that Christ made the final sacrifice on Calvary. No further sacrifice is required.
That automatically abolishes the need for an altar, either at home or in the church. Whats the use of an altar if you don't sacrifice anything?
It would actually be very strange for a Protestant to have an altar at home, because it would contradict with his theology.
Finally your question what we have as worship.
Well we have prayer, we have praise, we have alms and we have teaching...just like you have.
Guess what, even the RCC recognizes all these things as valid forms of worship, so I do not really understand your question.
We also have Holy Communion, just like you.
The only thing we do not have is the theology that the bread and water turn into the literal flesh and blood.
So are you saying that worship is only valid worship if there is a Eucharist and transubstantiation present?
