Paul's Passing Thoughts

Protestantism in a Nutshell

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on April 17, 2021

With Martin Luther, and Protestant orthodoxy, sanctification is the progression of salvation through the “ordinary means of grace” obtained only through church membership.

According to John Calvin, and his three classifications of elect, the “called” are church members, and those who persevere to “final justification” remain faithful to church until the end. The fact that Protestantism is salvation by church membership and thus adds multitudes of mediators other than Christ is not arguable.

Moreover, Protestant scholars are fond of saying the “ground of justification” is Christ’s perfect law-keeping. How is that a justification apart from the law? Hence, Protestantism is a blatant false gospel that denies justification by new birth and Christians who are righteous as a state of being rather than a mere legal declaration.

Protestantism was created in a church-state and for the express purpose of church-state. The Pilgrims came to America for the freedom to do church-state better than the Church of England. The Pilgrims were Puritans who were Calvinists. Their tyranny was a primary catalyst for the American Revolution.

It is once again time to remind everyone that America was NOT founded on Judeo-Christian principles. It was founded on Individualism and the individual’s ability to self-govern and the state’s responsibility to protect that right.
