CATHOLIC VS. PROTESTANTChristianity is a religion that embodies the life of Jesus Christ. It isthe world’s largest religion and has many denominations. Thesedenominations include the following: Roman Catholic, Orthodox,Protestantism,Anglicanism,Amish,Baptists,Lutheranism,Pentecostalism, Presbyterian, Quakers, and Seventh Day Adventists. Thetwo largest branches of Christianity are Roman Catholic andProtestantism. The Roman Catholic Church contains approximately 1.2billion members. The Protestant church contains about 590 million(“Catholic vs. Protestant” 1). All though both of theses churches belongto the same denomination, both differ from each other significantly. Because both Catholicism and Protestantism belong to the samereligious denomination, they both share a lot of strong similarities aswell. “All Christians Churches hold the same core value: Jesus Christ wasthe son of the God who died for our sins, arose from the dead, andascended to heaven” (Russell 1). Both religions believe that there is oneGod. They believe that this one God is broken up into three beings of thesame God: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Both denominationsCabrera2
hold their worship within a church, chapel, or cathedral. Both believe“Angels are creation of God which are unseen and are created from light.They do not have their own free will and always obey thecommandments of Almighty God; also God's messengers” (“Catholic vs.Protestant” 1). These two religion denominations have had conflict since theirorigins. In today’s time, there is still conflict between the two. North andSouthern Ireland remains divided with the South being Catholic for themajority and Protestant in the North. Conflict remains between the tworegions due to religions disagreements. The Protestant Church originallybroke off from the Roman Catholic Church because they believed that ithad become corrupt (Parrot 1).
