Answering Objections to Apostolic Succession
February 08, 2006 Length: 1:06:36
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.
