Modern Protestantism

“Modern Protestantism- priceless as have been the benefits it has conferred on those who have joined its ranks – is yet very far from being a perfect recovery of primitive Christianity.  It has risen out of the gross ignorance and superstition of medieval Romanism…it has recovered a purer faith and a simpler ritual…and has adopted as its motto,  “The Bible, the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible”…but it has never completely purified itself from Romish doctrine and practice…and it has developed two strong tendencies, one to a return to the Romish apostacy, and the other to rationalism and infidelity.  The true spiritual church of Christ is still, even in Protestant lands, but a small part of the professing church.”

H.G. Guinness, from his Romanism and the Reformation, P.168 – written in 1887
