Hello, greetings!
I am a very devout Catholic and I've been recently watching videos on YouTube about other people's spiritual journeys.
I was wondering why both Catholics and protestants claim to see Jesus?
Why are protestants being called to be protestant ministers, like Kevin Zadai and Sid Roth?

Catholics believe revelation is based on the scriptures, tradition (e.g. the teachings of the early Church Fathers such as Saint Ignatius of Antioch, Justin Martyr and Basil the Great) and the Magisterium (The Pope and the Councils of the Church such as Nicea, Constantinople, Ephesus).

The beliefs are summarised in the Catechism (see http://www.usccb.org/beliefs-and-teachi ... ic-church/)

Protestants generally use the Bible only - or more accurately their own interpretation of the scriptures - that's why each group is different - they all have their own interpretation.

The Catechism says: In fact, "in this one and only Church of God from its very beginnings there arose certain rifts, which the Apostle strongly censures as damnable. But in subsequent centuries much more serious dissensions appeared and large communities became separated from full communion with the Catholic Church - for which, often enough, men of both sides were to blame."The ruptures that wound the unity of Christ's Body - here we must distinguish heresy, apostasy, and schism - do not occur without human sin:

818 "However, one cannot charge with the sin of the separation those who at present are born into these communities [that resulted from such separation] and in them are brought up in the faith of Christ, and the Catholic Church accepts them with respect and affection as brothers . . . . All who have been justified by faith in Baptism are incorporated into Christ; they therefore have a right to be called Christians, and with good reason are accepted as brothers in the Lord by the children of the Catholic Church."

819 "Furthermore, many elements of sanctification and of truth" are found outside the visible confines of the Catholic Church: "the written Word of God; the life of grace; faith, hope, and charity, with the other interior gifts of the Holy Spirit, as well as visible elements. Christ's Spirit uses these Churches and ecclesial communities as means of salvation, whose power derives from the fullness of grace and truth that Christ has entrusted to the Catholic Church. All these blessings come from Christ and lead to him, and are in themselves calls to "Catholic unity."


So these protestant ministers do have element of truth but not the fullness of truth which can only be found in the Catholic Church.

I would suggest that there are many Bishops, priests and laity that are more worth listening to than any protestant minister.

Princess Warrior,

I believe that the Lord hears them from where they are coming from; just as He heard the wise men who came to honor the newborn king.
