      Jacob and Morat had poured out their blood, now offered itself to the Swiss. Each was a check written on a bank account filled by the ordinary practice and belief of the Protestant denominations. Scripture is still spoken of as inspired, but its inspiration is only the impassioned expression of human religious experiences; Christ is the Son of God, but His Son-ship is like that of any other good man; the very ideas of God, religion, Church, sacraments, have lost their old values: they stand for nothing real outside the subject in whose religious life they form a kind of fool's paradise. The new form of social and religious order, which is the residue of the great Protestant upheaval in Europe, is territorial or State Religion - an order based on the religious supremacy of the temporal ruler, in contradistinction to the old order in which the temporal ruler took an oath of obedience to the Church.

      In truth, all the talk, from the eighteenth century on, of the United States as a religious nation was really just a make-nice way of saying it was a Christian nation—and even to call it a Christian nation was usually just a soft and ecumenical attempt to gloss over the obvious fact that the United States was, at its root, a Protestant nation. Protestantism was destined to present itself at the gates of all the kingdoms of Europe. On that account they were called Protestants. And that is another reason why private judgment, though upheld in theory, has not been carried out in practice.

      Take, for instance, the peculiar case of James Pike, the Episcopal bishop of California in the s. And for this one kingdom, I have all other Christian realms". These illustrious men arose all at once, as if by one accord, against the prevailing errors, without however having concerted together; and by their constancy and their firmness, accompanied by the blessing from on high, they happily succeeded in different places in rescuing the torch of the Gospel from under the bushel that had hidden its light, and by means of it effected the reformation of the Church; and as God gave, at least in part, this grace to different nations, such as the French, English, and Germans, he granted the same to the Swiss nation: happy if they had all profited by it. Oh, he was smart enough to sound intelligent, and he was extremely savvy about the star-making power of the press. No one listens, no one minds, no one cares.

The Lutherans were not able to merge with the Congregationalists so long as German theologians kept the unique identity of Lutheranism alive. Will they accept it? Many commentators, analyzing the decline of liberal denominations in recent decades, have pointed to the gains of conservative churches.

Unfortunately, they obtained their ecumenical unity at the price of abandoning most of the religious work that ecumenism was supposed to advance. Germany was a tolerably central spot.

A little light Unitarianism on one side, a lot of stern Calvinism on the other, and the Easter Parade running right down the middle: our annual Spring epiphany, crowned in bright new bonnets. Rulers were guided by political and material considerations in their adherence to particular forms of faith, and they usurped the right of imposing their own choice on their subjects, regardless of private opinions: cujus regio hujus religio.

In fact the Reformation spread much faster than the Apostolic Church. And for this one kingdom, I have all other Christian realms".

John Henry Newman says "I think I may assume that this virtue, which was exercised by the first Christians, is not known at all amongst Protestants now; or at least if there are instances of it, it is exercised toward those, I mean their teachers and divines, who expressly disclaim that they are objects of it, and exhort their people to judge for themselves" "Discourses to Mixed Congregations", Faith and Private Judgment.

Had they fought and bled to rend the lighter yoke, and were they meekly to bear the heavier? Even today, the numbers are uncertain—with, oddly, the smaller groups harder to count than the larger.

Priesthood of All Believers The universal priesthood of believers implies the right and duty of the Christian laity not only to read the Bible in the vernacular, but also to take part in the government and all the public affairs of the Church.

How many Christians are made by the tons of Testaments distributed by missionaries to the heathen? Byruns a bitter joke among conservative Anglicans, the Episcopal Church will have one priest for every congregant.

Bartholomew's Day massacre of ; the publication of Foxe's Book of Martyrs; the Spanish Armada of ; and the Gunpowder Plot of all contributed to an English nationalism which was "thoroughly militant and Protestant".

Meanwhile, religion provides meaning and narrative, a channel for the hunger of human beings to reach beyond the vanities of the world, but it tilts, in turn, toward hegemony and conformity.

It stands to reason, and Protestant history confirms it. They were once powerful Protestant centers, their proud position in this respect being due to the heroism of Huss and Jerome of Prague. Is it day that looks forth, or is it but a deceitful gleam, fated to be succeeded by another century of gloom?

The State has no equivalent power to Oppose. It is opposed to the hierarchical system, which puts the essence and authority of the Church in an exclusive priesthood, and makes ordained priests the necessary mediators between God and the people". The Roman Church is indeed, like the State, a political power, worldly to the core, but after all she is a Church, and therefore disposes of religious powers which she invariably brings into action when contending with civil powers for Supremacy.
