Not even close Jesuitical Lad. My sense of hmour is far more defective than yours, and my dress sense perfectly fits someone who communicates only via the internet and email.

All this "I am a good Prot because my ancesters did x, y and z" is not a very protestant way of looking at it. I am a Protestant because I am convinced from Scripture that it is true, and because God chose me and called me and gave me the grace to understand His Word. So there!

OK, I don't even know what all y'all are talking about, because I'm so Protestant.

While worshipping at an Episcopal church (I had thought Episcopal was non-Catholic??? [Paranoid] ) this past Sunday, I was lost and confused. And may I put in a good word for Scot who also seemed to not have a clue?

"Halleluia, amen Jay-sus." <What?? We were supposed to applaud at the end of the sermon????> [Embarrassed] [Embarrassed] [Embarrassed]

See? Clueless. And nobody else was wearing a sequined dress with a palm tree pattern like I was. Thank goodness Scot had the good sense to wear a tropical shirt.

Here's a quote from that link :

Doesn't sound very protestant to me ?!???

I do know of one shipmate who's in some way related to William of Orange, which would make him very protestant indeed. If he decides to post on this thread we ma all have to concede.

What does MC stand for?

BTW: Duchess - you gain a point for removing that Romish signature that you had before. But you lose two for mentioning dancing. Yes, Yes, I know it was in the Bible, but that was by King David and he was almost naked at the time so obviously that shows how bad dancing is. Amen.

And I attend the church he arguably created - the mother church of presbyterianism. Notably we hold true to the Westminster Confession, approved by the Kirk's General Assembly in 1647 as "most orthodox and grounded upon the word of God", which denounces the pope as the anti-christ.

Ok, AB steps up to the plate. (not that I play sports you understand, that would detract from me devoting all of my time to serve the Blessed Lord).

I was born and grew up in a city that was twice ex-communicated from the Catholic Chuch and in a country of the language of the one Authorised Holy Scriptures, though I found I had to whip myself daily before dawn throughout my childhood to prevent myself of being proud of such an Blessed occurance. Though naturally not too hard, as my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.

During my education I made great pains to learn both Latin and Italian with the express purpose of being able to save my Romish brothers from their shamefully false religion of indulgence, though naturally I rejoiced in said pains since they allowed me to suffer as our Lord suffered.

Even now I steadfastly refuse to wear anything containing white, red or green, for fear that someone might connect me with Rome and thus cause a weak brother to stumble.

So, you see, I would be much more protestant than Wood, were I not so uninterested in adhearing to a label of man, which is clearly unbecoming of a true Christian, and thus worthy of the indulgences of Rome.

I exhort you all to love, brothers (and sisters, these days!).

The judge, though rather impressed with strathclydezero's post, was less than impressed with his/her website - containing, as it does, links to some rather perverse articles (some of which are yea indeed verily blasphemous and some of which appear to twist Scripture towards destruction [Disappointed] ). Points will not be awarded until the aformentioned strathclydezero has a chance to reform his/her website. If they were to be awarded at the moment, they would be of the very large negative variety.

The judge is rather impressed with AB's first contribution. Wood - you seem to have a worthy challenger. So, 3 points to AB for his post. (Assuming "his" by reason of the male-looking avatar). However, 4 points deducted for the comment on his profile under "interests". "Being a tart"??? How ungodly. [Disappointed]

Sadly now that I have left said City they have fallen to apostasy and allowed a church of Rome onto their soil. Oh, that they would repent and come back, but alas, they are not willing...

Anglicanrascal, I do forgive you for your sins within the episcopal tradition. Please though understand that it is the normal practice of protestants to protest internally. Why else would my mother church currently have 6 active schisms. It is in the nature of a true protestant to expose and protest at those values to which the church has become idolatrized. My website serves in this purpose - rallying for the next reformation.

IN response to being completely ignored as a valuable if not the most protestant Protestant, can I formally object to having an AnglicanRascal judging this contest.

Here's my reasons :
  • AnglicanRascal is part of the Anglican Communion (and/or clearly associates with them)
  • AR's profile includes the liturgical "Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy.", unbecoming of any judge. Only true protestants should judge a competition involving protestants; any other setup smacks of ecumenism.
  • AR was impressed with AB's credentials. What? AB uses the term "Blessed Lord", which belies his Papal tendencies. I can't believe AR didn't notice this. Or rather, I can believe it.
  • Anyone who can ask trick questions about feast days KNOWS TOO MUCH for this competition

We need a new judge.

Well, none of what any of you say cuts any ice with me. As I said to Wood back at the start of this, unless you can provide me with chapter and verse from the Bible as to why you are the most Protestant, I will not believe!

I think this puts me in with at least some chance, as moths do at least appear in the Bible. Unlike Stathclydezero, whatever heathenish thing that may be. Or Anglicanrascal. In fact, I think my sig. might be a good indication of the Protestant tendencies of moths. So there.

The A in AB stands for Andrew, which is profoundly Biblical. Andrew indeed, led his brother Simon Peter to Jesus, thus it is clearly my destiny to lead the alleged papal church of Peter back to the True Path of our Lord.

This was again, the source of much whipping in my formative days. Praise be!

Exactly. I am a member of the only biblical lepidoptera, and appear in both testaments, although admittedly not in a very flattering light.

If scz wants to be taken seriously, he should rename himself 'Praisegod Barebones' or similar, and get rid of that avatar with its distinctly occult overtones.

Em, wake up and smell the coffee. The Vatican holds the seat of the anti-Christ. You may as well walk into the bowels of hell as do business with Beelzebub's whipping boy.

The Roman church HAS NO FUTURE and it is TOO LATE to turn them back.

Has no-one told you about the prophesy that the anti-Christ was seated in power in the city of seven hills (Rome)?

I quote :

quote:
Revelations 17 v 5. And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS [i.e. The Roman Church] AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
and
quote:
Revelations 17 v 9. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains [i.e Rome], on which the woman sitteth.
and
quote:
1 John 2, 18. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist [i.e. the pope] shall come, even now are there many antichrists [i.e. papists]; whereby we know that it is the last time.
All of which clearly indicate that "Roman Catholic" church is Satan's mouthpiece and reprehensible in it's vile corruption.

I was about to award you 8 points for that. But I will deduct 3 points for the grovelling. Net result: +5 to Jimi Kendricks.

Points awarded by men to men? What tradition is this? Sounds suspiciously like something the 'catholics' might come up with.

I'll stick with the joy of rising before dawn to pray for 3 hours, thank you very much. Not that I'm proud of my efforts, you understand.

That would be me then [Wink] - William of Orange was my Great (x7 or therabouts) Grandfather's Godfather - dunno about related, but I think that's not too bad. Yes I really can sing with pride about "The Sash My Father Wore" [Snigger]

Jimi Kendricks, please tell me what your high church C of I priest did to be labelled thus. I'm fascinated, having spent 5 years scouring Ulster for something that climbed the scale as far as middle-of-the-road and couldn't find it.

Hi Ethel,

Not sure I can help you much here...

I think the high church tendencies that I described were merely that - tendencies. It was only subtly different than the usual conservative fare.
The changes were : The minister would hold the bible high in the air in front of his face and then kiss it whenever possible; the sermon would be shorter; during communion, the minister would pronouce This is my body, with a tone that implied that transubstantiation was happening. Ecumenism was also emphasised at this time too. The minister was quite posh too, which gave the impression of being high church.

Nothing major perhaps, but in this thread I need all the help I can get. [Smile]

Back to topic :

Robert Miller - I bow in awe at your presence. May I also suggest that you have one of the most protestant names! I've known at least two, if not three Robert Millers/Millars who are working in the Lord's service.

[Smile]

Enough said.

Well at least his/her Shipname is from the Bible. I can't find any "strathclydezero"s in my Strong's Concordance of the Authorized Version. So stick that in your pope and smoke it.
Exactly. I am a member of the only biblical lepidoptera, and appear in both testaments, although admittedly not in a very flattering light.

If scz wants to be taken seriously, he should rename himself 'Praisegod Barebones' or similar, and get rid of that avatar with its distinctly occult overtones.

Actually, if you are really Protestant you don't need no stinkin' images. *Godless idolators* do they even know what avatars *are*? Some heathen nonsense, if you ask me...mutter-mutter... [Disappointed]

I think I am incredibly Protestant.

I was born to Baptist-Anglican parents, who, as lay folk, started the local Prebyterian Church under the tree across the road from their house. After they led the team that built the church, I grew there as a little child, only moving to the City Centre Presbyterian Church (St Andrews) as a teenager, where I stayed for 20 years. This was the bastion of Scots Presbyterian in my state, and functioned almost as the "cathedral" church for my denomination. I studied confirmation classes therein, but Church Union happened by the end of the course, and I was confirmed Uniting Church in Australia, the day I turned 17, the day after the Senior School Leaving Dance at my Protestant Girls'School, a week after union. So my church membership reflected my new Methodist-Congregationalist heritage as well as the Scots Pressie thing. In fact the new informal emblem of the building involved a kilt and a leek (the Welsh Congregationalist thing). Our 2 ministers- Welsh and Scots, led the church into becoming the bastion of Australianism it is today, and even introduced draft copies of the then new Aus. Hymn Book, so we could truly become an Australian Protestant Church.

The only reason I left this mighty ediface of Protestantism was because I got ordained and went off to become a Minister-of-the-Word in the Uniting Church of Australia. Ever since then, I have ministered thusly.

My Church has sister-relations with just about every Methodist, Congregationalist and Presbyterian Church in the world, as well as every variety of union (based around Protestant denominations), so I could, concievably, minister in a wide variety of denominations, should I ever wish to travel and do so.

Good litle Protestant me! [Big Grin]

We've discussed this and you know that I'm more protestant than you.

I know I'm going to lose points for tempting a brother/sister to stumble, but if you are still on the look out, try starting a thread in MW on High Church establishments in Ulster, rest assured, if there exists such a beast, the denizens of MW will know where it is.

I'd like to further emphasize my credentials as a Very Protestant Methodist with a leaning toward the "think and let think" philosophy.

Ahem...cough cough.

My brother was married in a Buddhist ceremony to a (very nice) Buddhist Thai woman.

My son was married in a <shudder> Druid ceremony.

And I still love them both.

Plus, I can sing all the verses of "And Can It Be That I Should Gain".

I'd have thought that was near enough an entry condition for being any sensible kind of Christian, never mind a Protestant. [Wink]

And I win because I have no truck with these idolatrous icon-like so-called "avatars" [Smile]

I have decided that there is too much fun going on on this thread. I think, therefore, you are all much less protestant than the rest of the ship, who haven't participated in this thread.

I thank you...
