Trent Dialogues is a Protestant organization that exists to bring Catholics and Protestants together in conversation regarding the profound theological realities that divide us. Our desire is to bring glory to God and take Jesus' prayer for unity (John 17:21) seriously, but we don’t believe true unity involves overlooking deep differences and reducing our theologies to the lowest common denominator. Rather, we pursue frank, respectful, and loving conversations regarding our theological differences and how those differences shape our acceptance of God’s precious gospel.
We have a deliberately present focus, asking “What are you and I to believe now?” rather than “What did Martin Luther argue in 1517?” Nonetheless, the Council of Trent and other historical theological proclamations reverberate throughout history and continue to inform the conversation today.
“If any one saith, that the justice received is not preserved and also increased
before God through good works; but that the said works are merely the fruits and signs
of Justification obtained, but not a cause of the increase thereof; let him be anathema.”
Council of Trent, Session 6, Canon XXIV
