Though I am NOT a Catholic I see beauty in the uniformity of their doctrine. They have ONE uniform body of doctrine. Protestants have no uniform body of doctrine and Protestantism is responsible for so many way out there interpretations. That being said I am a Reformed Protestant.

My pre-Catholic background was Reformed Protestantism as well.

If Protestant Trinitarians knew what the Catholic Church has done and is doing to guard the precious doctrine of Christ's divinity I think they would be less inclined to bash the Catholic Church.

I use to post on an anti-trinitarian forum where Trinitarians were the minority. One guy came there who went by the name "CatholicApologist." He really demolished the arguments of the anti-trinitarians. Furthermore, he posted links to articles by Catholic scholars. I read them all and I was very impressed by those articles. I found more articles by Catholic scholars on my own. The arguments in those articles were like nothing I had ever seen in all of Protestantism. Protestant scholars cannot hold a candle to Catholic scholars when it comes to defending the doctrine of the Trinity and especially the divinity of our precious Lord Jesus.

Since then I have a newly found appreciation for Catholics even though I locked horns with "CatholicApologist" on the subject of justification by faith. Since that experience I go by Jesus' principle, "Whosoever is not against us is for us."
