Comparative Religions 101 Guidelines

Welcome to Comp Religions, this is where the sights and sounds of the many world religions come together in a big World's Fair type atmosphere, without those delicious funnel cakes.

World Religions is a theist only type place, but that does not exclude certain religionists who practice non-theistic faiths ala Buddhism. If you are not sure, ask a moderator.

This is not a place where we argue the existence / non-existence of God.

And as usual, the forum rules apply.

  • Marius Victorinous claimed to have teached sola fide any truth to that?

    Marius Victorinus was a plationist philosopher that converted to Christianity near the end of his life, supposedly his conversation had made a great impact on Augustine. However I have seen people claim he had taught Sola Fide! Do we have an expert in this forum that can find some Catholic commentary on his work? There are many Evangelicals that claimed he taught Sola Fide.

    Here is one for example (starts on page 3) http://baptistcenter.net/journals/JB...pring_2014.pdf
    and http://ctdev.concordiatheology.org/2...t-in-thy-word/

    I was under the impression that Sola Fide championed by Martin Luther in the 16th century as a reaction to the corruption and problems of the Catholic Church

    Try this for a starter: https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/ortho...doctrines/amp/

    I donít myself see anything in these extracts that is particularly problematic for Catholics. The writer who quotes these extracts seems to think that Catholic doctrine ascribes an equal standing to faith and works, as though both equally were causes ,of the same status, in bringing about salvation - and many Catholics on-line do little to dispel that impression. Such a view of the relation between faith and works is however completely unorthodox, by the standards of the Catholic Faith. This notion is crude and unorthodox, though seemingly common. But perhaps this is not the best place for an explanation of how that is so.
