If the Church existed until, the beginning of Protestantism, what is Protestantism needed in general?
Because the true Church of Jesus Christ is made of those redeemed through His blood, born again and live according to the sound doctrine of Christ, which is written on the pages of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament.
Church is not controlled or limited by denomination or religion and no denomination holds the monopoly on the Church of Christ or on the Kingdom of God, even if it claims to be the “one”, “apostolic” or “ecumenical”.
The criteria of belonging to the Church of Christ is faith in the Holy Scriptures and living according to the teachings of the Bible. Because so-called “holy tradition” of a denomination (which claims to be the only true church) came to overshadow all the truth of Scripture, that’s why Protestantism appeared. This is well known.
