As for the mainline denominations, McDermott held the cowardice of pastors responsible for the tectonic changes in their congregants' faith: "They are afraid to preach and teach anything that challenges what people already think. Do you think it more incredible that bones should come together when bidden, than that streams should be turned back or the sea flee? Early Anabaptists were severely persecuted by both Calvinist and Catholic civil authorities.

A later "charismatic" movement also stressed the gifts of the Spirit, but often operated within existing denominations, rather than by coming out of them. Archbishop Laski of Gnesen and King Sigismund I (1501-48) energetically opposed the spread of heretical doctrines. Early Free Methodists understood well that they were not called to build “popular” churches (today called mega- churches). There was a sort of habitual aquiescence in the inevitability of sin, and the hope of heaven was a large element of orthodox piety.

Impulses to which Luther and Calvin spoke. 45 Catholicism has a better survival record than Protestantism.

Ford was featured as the alternate speaker to Billy Graham on The Hour of Decision broadcast and his own daily TV and radio spots in the United States, Canada and Australia." In 1534, Henry had Parliament pass an act appointing the king and his successors supreme head of the Church of England, thus establishing an independent national Anglican church.

And if you look beyond, converts are an increasingly important feature in two [Orthodox representations] in America, the Orthodox Church in America and the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese. "About half our bishops come from other traditions," said Archpriest Leonid Kishkovsky, the OCA's ecumenical officer. The churches collaborate in practice, but without any consolidation of dogmatic differences: [ 18 ] The National Council represents the wholeness of the Christian task.
