comment Why do Protestants say: “In Jesus' name. Amen.”, whereas Catholics say: “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.”?
@Geremia I personally seldom repeat the Lord's prayer, as I believe it is to be a pattern, not a repetition. I most often pray directly to the Father. I rarely, if ever, address the Holy Spirit directly, except in songs. I do address Jesus personally, but less frequently than the Father.

@Geremia No, we typically pray TO the Father (like the Lord's Prayer) in the NAME of Jesus.

comment Why is it called Christianity
@John It seems from your comments that you have a lot of anger toward Christianity. I'm sorry if someone offended you. Admittedly, Christians do not wear his coat well sometimes. bible.org/illustration/you-wear-his-coat-very-well But Christianity is all about realizing that none of us are good enough for God. We are all guilty before God and need His forgiveness. All the best to you.

comment Why is it called Christianity
@john Paul's letter to the Corinthians (chapter 15) attests that most of the people who saw Jesus after His resurrection were still alive at the time he was writing the letter. Thus, we know for a historical fact that the letter was written probably 20-30 years after the resurrection of Jesus (~50 A.D.)--not 75-125 years later. And that wasn't even his first letter. Christianity is not a new religion at all. As I noted, it is fulfilled Judaism that embraces its Messiah. Call it whatever you want. The name does not matter. It all rests on the resurrection of Jesus, the promised Messiah.

comment What do Evangelical Christians consider “the traditions” to be in 1 Thessalonians 2:15?
@CharlesAlsobrook Sorry. Just pointing out that the traditions they were speaking of would, by definition, be in existence then, so it would not refer to teachings introduced later. Scripture can never mean what it did not mean originally.

Well, whatever it means, it refers to what was taught before then--not after.
