          because they are spiritually israeli

          Protestants are by definition more "spiritually israeli" in their desire to remove the pagan elements of Roman Catholicism, leaving Judaism.

            Christianity predates Judaism, so reformed Christianity hearkens to a pre israelite apostolic church

            >Christianity predates Judaism
            Silly polemics and veiled antisemitism rooted in sectarian conflict. Christians invented the idea of Christianity and Judaism as religions in the modern understanding of that term anyway, this can be traced to Ignatius of Antioch. All of this is insider talk and not onjectively the case if we consider the neutral pov objective. These things have a history. Get educated.

            We just don't care
            Catholics have this elaborate fiction that saints are given an abundance of merit, and their treasury can be accessed by the faithful living. Stories of saintly miracles are needed to affirm sainthood, so there's motivation to claim and believe they occurred.
            Protestants just don't have any room for that in our view of imputed righteousness.

            It's also obviously cultic in instances yet Catholics never police their own.

    As I understand it they don't, they just argue that the saints that actually performed miracles were crypto-Baptists or whatever.

    Setting aside issues of historicity, what's even the basis for rejecting this in the first place? Performing miracles isn't an automatic blank check authorization from the divine anyway, otherwise it would be wise to follow the anti-Christ. What matters more are teachings.

            Now you're just equivocating on 'miracle'
            Maybe I wasn't clear. I take miracles to be a supernatural thing

    Because they're heretics. Protestantism is watered down Christianity that should not be taken seriously in any capacity and all Protestant opinions should be disregarded and laughed at.

    Lutheranism doesn't deny the miracles of the saints. It's just back when it started, most peasants didn't have a good understanding of their own faith and thus took veneration a bit too far. So it swung in the opposite direction and it sort of stuck with the rest of the Protestant denominations, some of which took it even further.
