The words are what they are and the Protestant reformers had no right to oppose all antiquity and create the "symbolic" belief for the Eucharist, when this is clearly not stated in Scripture. Santeria, which is home-centered and has no institutional structure, involves ritual animal sacrifice -- usually using chickens or goats -- and physical and psychological healing ceremonies.

Williams, Bishop of Lincoln, had been the warmest and most powerful of Laud's patrons; but all his past services were forgotten when Williams wrote a book against the archbishop's innovations.

The most famous and influential Evangelical leaders today are probably Rick Warren and Bill Hybels, creators of the “purpose driven” (also called “seeker-sensitive”) church system. Protestant churches generally reject the Catholic and Orthodox doctrines of apostolic succession and the sacramental ministry of the clergy. [5]. The Churches, as we have seen, had been closed against the Protestant ministers; but now we behold the pulpit set up in the Diet itself, and great princes becoming preachers of the Gospel.

The argument was hailed in the council as of Inspiration only; the party for "Scripture alone," surrendered; and the council at once unanimously condemned Protestantism and the whole Reformation as only an unwarranted revolt from the communion and authority of the Catholic Church; and proceeded, April 8, 1546, "to the promulgation of two decrees, the first of which, enacts under anathema, that Scripture and tradition are to be received and venerated equally, and that the deutero-canonical [the apocryphal] books are part of the canon of Scripture.

Amid this outburst of new life Protestantism appears on the scene, itself a child of the times. Although Muether does not mention it, Van Til concludes this brief discussion of Dr. Henry, "Response," in Michael Cromartie, ed., No Longer Exiles: The Religious New Right in American Politics (Washington, D.
