  1. Not a bad booklet. Could you shed some light on the second sentence in view to my comments below:

    “1) Protestants interpret the Great Commission passage at the end of St.
    Matthew’s gospel as giving them the mandate to go on missionary
    journeys. 2) Yet the original Reformers understood this passage as only
    applying to the Apostles and the next several generations.” p.17

    Are you certain it was only for the Apostles and for the next several generations to follow? When did it end exactly and with whom; specific names please? If it was only for the Apostles as you have written, then are you suggesting that there were more Apostles added [besides Paul & Matthias] along the way after the original 12 died within the 1st century? Also consider Paul and many other Christians of his time believed that Christ was returning very soon, so how could ‘the original Reformers’ have understood the passage to mean it was for many ‘generations to come’?

    Love & light,

    PS: The apologetic on Mary was incredible. Keep up the good work!

  2. Jason,

    The limitation of the Great Commission to apostolic times is part of the history of the Reformation – not what the Catholic Church teaches. This is evidence of Protestant confusion and disagreement with their movements’ own founders.

    As McClymond (in The Theology of Jonathan Edwards) notes, “The standard theological textbooks of William Ames, Johannes Wollebius, and John Calvin were all silent on the theme of mission, and no other major work of Protestant dogmatics in the English-speaking prior to 1800 world gave mission a prominent place. Many Reformed thinkers after the Reformation, including Edward’s ally Thomas Prince in Boston, believed mission was largely limited to the apostolic age.”

    For a discussion of this phenomena, see Davies’ article “Calvin to Carey” where he cites Luther, Bucer, Calvin, etc. on the subject.
