Catholic Church versus Protestant Church

The difference between Catholic and Protestant churches can be observed by examining the practices and beliefs of each church. Both Catholic and Protestant are religions that include most of the followers or believers around the world. Both believe in Jesus and his death on the cross for our sins. There are many differences in the two religions that confuse many as to who is telling the truth. Ultimately, it cannot be said to be telling the truth because both religions have strong beliefs and facts to support their beliefs. Both religions have tried to find common ground over the years, but both firmly believe that one cannot change the other.

More about the Catholic Church

The Catholic Church has a rich and colorful history that spans decades. The apostles and Christian converts traveled the world to spread the word of God and thereby spread Catholicism. The religion spread quickly like wildfire, and its main belief is that the Church was founded by Jesus Christ. The church had many problems in the early days of Christianity and was scaled down accordingly during the legalization of the church by Emperor Constantine I. The Catholic Church believes that Sunday was the first day of worship, so Sunday is considered the first day of the week to this day. Because early Christianity was loosely organized, it led to different interpretations of God's word.

When it comes to authority, the Catholic Church believes in the word of God through the Bible and its tradition. They believe that many of the teachings of the Catholic Church are as authoritative as those of the Word of God. Catholics believe in purgatory, pray to saints, venerate and venerate Mary, the mother of Christ. Although almost all of these practices have no essential basis in the Bible, Catholics believe that both the Bible and traditions play important roles in the salvation of mankind.

More about the Protestant Church

The Protestant Church began in the late 16th century. They were actually part of the Catholic Church when they decided to separate from the Church. The breakup was caused by different beliefs and interpretations. They believed that the church was doing something wrong with its practices and teachings. They protested the acts of the church, believing that the only source of wisdom is the Bible and not tradition and historical individuals. This group of protesters built their own church and taught in ways they believed to be right and true.

When it comes to authority, Protestants believe that only the Bible has authority, or what they call "Sola Scriptura". They believe that the word of God alone should be the only source of our faith and that traditions do not matter. They do not worship the Virgin Mary because she is simply the bodily mother of Christ. Protestants believe that there are books in the Catholic Bible that are not blessed by God to become His Word, so they should be removed.

• The Protestant Church also believes that some books in the Catholic Bible are not blessed by God. Therefore, these books are being removed from the Protestant Bible.

• In the Catholic Church women cannot become priestesses, but they can be nuns. In the Protestant Church, women are not allowed to be part of the clergy. However, you can teach and work in other areas.

• Holy days for the Catholic Church are Christmas, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, and the feast days of the Saints. Holy days for the Protestant Church are Christmas and Easter.

• The Catholic Church believes in all the prophets found in the books of the Holy Bible. The Protestant Church shares the same faith. In addition, however, the Protestant Church regards Muhammad as a false prophet.

There was much heated discussion between the two religious groups. There are other differences that can be cited as both fight for what they believe to be right and true. The bottom line here is your belief. Regardless of what religious group you belong to, it all boils down to your personal beliefs. Whether you believe in a supreme being or in a real person who was sacrificed on the cross for our salvation, your faith should remain firm.
