What do Protestants experience when they describe a “personal relationship with God”?
#11
Firstly, Michael Voris once distinguished between Catholics and Protestants by stating that Protestants usually refer to 'The Lord' regardless of a 'personal relationship' (shudder), whereas we refer to Him as 'Our Lord' and hence potentially enjoy a greater degree of closeness and intimacy.

Although I've long since gone off of Michael Voris, he makes an astute point sometimes in general and here in particular.

Secondly, people here have - it seems to me anyway - made good points about Protestants (in many, or even most cases) appearing to have almost a revulsion for the idea that Good Works are necessary, as opposed to merely being a bonus (hence stopping themselves from that connection they claim they have/want).

Even if Protestants (or any non-Catholics) are responsible for Works, then that is not good enough because St. James obviously wrote that you can't have Faith without Works, so surely you also can't have Works without Faith?
