Q: Why don’t protestants respect Catholic beliefs?

A: Some do. Many do not.

When the first protestants invented their all new and novel forms of Christianity, they made up all their own rules from scratch … and they had absolutely no authority from God to do so.

Many of today’s protestants never learned that, and were led into their current state of confusion/heresy/apostacy by the leaders of their own particular faith traditions … so they may well be ignorant of the facts.

Conversely, Jesus Christ personally founded the Catholic Church while he still walked the earth, and he constituted the Church in much the same way that the old Jewish system was originally put together … on the three witnesses of scripture, tradition, and the teachings of those in authority.

Sanctifying grace also plays an essential role … and that’s something that was not part of the Hebrew system.

Thanks to God’s divine providence, Jesus remains at the head of the Catholic Church, and the Holy Spirit remains as the Church’s constant advocate and arbiter of all divine truth. Because of all this, the Catholic Church really has no choice but to officially teach what was faithfully handed down to it by Jesus and the original aposles.

This is essentially why the authentic Catholic Church is both infallible and indefectible.

Based on all of the above and more, one who disrespects the Catholic Church disrespects God, and one who disrespects Catholics disrespects God’s very own adopted children.

Any way you look at it, those types of folks are likely to have a lot of explaining to do, come Judgment Day.
