Answering Objections to Apostolic Succession
February 08, 2006 Length: 66:36
We continue our discussion of apostolic succession by examining some common objections given by Protestants - found in a sermon outline published on Calvin College's CCEL Historical Church document site. It becomes clear that for Protestants, reaction against apostolic succession is not based on solid Biblical or historical grounds, but rather on the need to question and reject the authority of Rome (papal and magisterial) and its excesses, which are not necessarily a part of the Eastern Orthodox Tradition.
"I just love both this website and the two streaming audio feeds—mostly the music stream, but I find myself listening quite a bit to the talk stream, too. And guess what? I'm not even Orthodox! Ha! Who woulda' thunk it, eh? Thank you for being so good at what you do and for so surprising this old LCA (now ELCA) Lutheran with just how much of it is truly interesting and edifying. Keep up the good work!"
