Robert Godfrey on Roman Catholicism’s Claim to be “Fundamentally Unchanged”

In this clip Protestant Church Historian W. Robert Godfrey challenges the claim of the Roman Catholic church that it is a 2,000 year unbroken tradition. The clip is based on an article in the most recent edition of Modern Reformation entitled “The Inventions of Rome.” In the article Godfrey claims that “[t]he Roman Catholic Church today is at least the fourth or fifth iteration of that organization, each in basic ways different from the others.” (37)



Dr. Godfrey has taught church history at Westminster Seminary California since 1981. He taught previously at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Stanford University, and Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He is the third president of Westminster Seminary California and is a minister in the United Reformed Churches in North America.
