I regularly get asked – either by Muslims or by Catholics themselves – what are the major differences between Catholics and Protestants? Asked another way, what was at stake in the Reformation?
Whilst there are many things we could say, there are two basic questions: (1) what is the means of salvation? (2) where does authority lie? Other questions were asked too – and lots of questions follow from those two – but they are the two big questions. Here, RC Sproul explains just what was at stake in the first of those questions.
