‘We all lost in the Reformation,’ says Protestant theologian – BC Catholic

“The Reformation is a piece of history both Catholics and Protestants should ‘lament and confess,’ says theology professor Hans Boersma… ‘We should not talk about it in any triumphalistic manner,’ said Boersma, who teaches at Regent College at UBC. ‘We all lost in the Reformation. The unity of the Church was empirically damaged; that’s a loss whether you’re a Catholic or a Protestant.’”

Amen.

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which our techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
