Analysis There are a lot of controversies of how religion is acceptable to better the world. Some people believe that it is the responsibility of the government. Meanwhile, some others disagree and believe a society needs to be united around a shared theme. An article in USA today stated that: "This big experiment of turning us from a Christian nation into a secular one isn't going so well. It's no coincidence that our problems get bigger as we make God smaller" (USA Today, 2011). The major issue of Christian is that it has been hard to evaluate or examine the consequences of being involved in a Christian life. "The normative statements of Christian faith and life, for example, are so very elevated, while the people who are Christians are so very ordinary. There is typically a glaring gap between what people profess to believe and what they actually do and appear to be in their everyday lives" (How Christianity Coopts Its Contradictions, 2000). There is still a different between how to open up an ideal Christian aspire compare to the ability of Christian people to live that life in spite of the unconditional and forgiveness of God. The Sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross is just help to clean the sin of human, it cannot make people to become perfect and have ability to live without sins.

I have been in Catholic since I was born until now and I considered there are a lot of similarities between Catholic and Christian worldview. And of course, there are many differences between Christian and Catholic as well. The first similarity is about the belief of God, both of them believe: “There is only one God: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. There are three persons of God but all three unity in One Unity” (Comparison between Catholic and Christian). One God can behave like the other Ones and they all have the same power and the same love to humanity. Second, both Catholic and Christian believe in the life after Death. Good people will have Eternal Salvation in Heaven and bad people will have Eternal Damnation in Hell. It also exists a “temporal third state before Heaven for those who desire purification which is known as Purgatory” (Comparison between Catholic and Christian). Third, we both have inherited “original sin” from Adam. Human being is the inherently evil and needs a forgiveness for their sin. The major differences between Catholic and Christian Worldview is about the confession.
