Is it likely that Calvin would term Bucer's position "perilous, seditious, false, and foolish"? One of his most often quoted statements on page 87 is "often I don't think Jesus would be caught dead as a Christian where he physically here today." So the shocking truth is that every single baptised Protestant out there, because of his/her Trinitarian baptism, already has one foot into the door of the Roman Catholic Church.

Orthodoxy with its emphasis on the Word made flesh leads to liturgical worship, liturgical vestments, the use of incense and icons, and most importantly the centrality of the Eucharist in worship. It is true that a major portion of the steel that has been used in the world comes from recycling of metals. And we mustn't forget to mention the King of England, for King James I had the following to say of this: "This doctrine is so horrible, that I am persuaded, if there were a council of unclean assembled spirits assembled in hell, and their prince the devil were to put the question either to all of them in general, or to each in particular, to learn their opinion about the most likely means of stirring up the hatred of men against God their Maker; nothing could be invented by them that would be more efficacious for this purpose, or that could put a greater affront upon God's love for mankind, than that detestable formulary, by which the far greater part of the human race are condemned to hell for no other reason, than the mere will of God, without any regard to sin; the necessity of sinning, as well as that of being damned, being fastened on them by that great nail of the decree before-mentioned" (Works of Arminius, Vol.
