Sacraments important as physical, visible signs of God’s grace.
• Many Protestants (methodists, evangelicals, quakers etc) say you
can only know God through faith. There aren’t any objects, or
people(eg “priests”), that can hold or administer God’s grace, apart
from your faith.
I prefer to trust God
through His Church
& its rituals, rather
than in my faith,
which is unreliable.
I don’t know if my faith
is good enough or not.
How can I have peace if
I keep wondering? I
need physical signs of
his presence.
In the Last Supper,
Jesus himself told us
to consecrate the
bread and wine as
objects through
which he would
make himself
present.
In the Old Testament, oil,
water, sacred stones as
altars were all used to
show God’s presence in a
special way.
The world is a physical
place, and God was born as
Jesus in a physical body. So
the physical world can be a
way of transmitting his
grace.
Do you agree with the protestant view? Explain, referring to some of the
arguments in the bubbles.
