Разлика между католик и баптист

Католик срещу баптист

Хората често се бъркат между религиозните групи католици и баптисти. Двете религии обаче споделят много общо убеждение „„ и двете имат вяра в Исус Христос. Разликите обаче се крият в някои от по -специфичните аспекти, практикувани във всяка религия.

Баптистите всъщност са група, която вярва в „кръщението на вярващите“ чрез Исус. Те са хората, които са пълнолетни вярващи в Христос. В тази връзка те са склонни да отхвърлят учението за кръщенето на бебета от католиците. Смята се, че това е вярно, защото те постулират, че само възрастните, които са в състояние да понесат по -добро разбиране за живота и греха, всъщност могат да имат „истинско“ доверие в Исус. Има много други подкрепящи основания за това твърдение. От една страна, те твърдят, че в Библията няма пасаж, който да споменава кръщенето на бебета. Второ, кръщението трябва да включва потапяне на тялото във вода. И накрая, Библията казва, че кръщението може да се даде само на тези, които могат да повярват. Поради всички тези причини анабаптистите се появяват , особено през ранното средновековие, като стават християни, които са били кръстени отново през зрялия си живот. Тези хора са същите като баптистите. Като тяхно основно убеждение, баптистката църква се фокусира върху вярата си в Исус Христос като единственото нещо, което може да донесе спасение.

От друга страна, „католик“ е по -универсален термин. Но за да бъдем по -конкретни, това е едно и също нещо с религиозната група, която светът познава като Римокатолическата църква. Това несъмнено е най -голямата религиозна група, създавана някога от времето, когато Исус „ходи“ по планетата. Неговият централен акцент е върху спасението чрез дела, при които човек също може да бъде спасен, не само чрез вяра, но и чрез подчиняване на тайнствата, които включват кръщение на бебето, причастие и много други.

Друга разлика между двете групи е сценарият за живот след смъртта. Римокатолиците настояват, че душата може да бъде отнесена в чистилището, освен просто да бъде разкъсана между небето и земята. Смята се, че последното е вярно според баптистите и това изключва чистилището. Нещо повече, първият вярва в молитва чрез застъпничеството на Мария и светиите. Обратно, баптистите вярват, че се молят само на Исус Христос. На всичкото отгоре все още има много други различия във вярванията, които имат двете групи. Но в обобщение:

1. Римокатолическата е най -голямата църква, за която е известно, че съществува днес, в сравнение с по -малката баптистка църква. 2. Централният фокус на баптистката църква е спасението само чрез вяра в Бог, докато католиците вярват в същото плюс вярата в светите тайнства като път към спасението. 3. Католиците вярват в кръщенето на бебета, докато баптистите вярват само в кръщенето на възрастни или поне на някой, който вече знае как да вярва.

  1. Настоящите християни са жертви на това, което не разбират добре. Разликите, които сега имаме, възникват в резултат на разногласие. Оттогава несъгласните страни положиха значителни усилия за създаване на логически излъскани концепции, които най -малкото биха се оказали погрешни за другите. При формулирането на концепции не се взема предвид дали противникът е прав, а че светът трябва да види, че другият греши. Библейските твърдения биха били тълкувани с изключително внимание и прилагане на философски принципи и логика, за да се поддържа потока на идея, която разбира се трябва да е в противоречие с интерпретацията, предоставена от противника. Дори когато противникът беше прав в някои аспекти, другият нямаше да омекне, защото се мразеха. В някои случаи, когато логиката не е успяла, някои от тях дори обвиняват самата библия, която използват. Историята цитира книгата на Яков, наречена „послание от сламки“, защото изглежда противоречила на течаща концепция само за вярата. Сега това е основата на хилядите християнски групи, които имаме в момента. Доколко сте сигурни, че логиката, под която се намирате, е създадена въз основа на Божието намерение или на Исус? Продължаваме да сочим с пръст съседите си поради наследени изработени логики, чиито основи са най -добре познати на занаятчиите. Всъщност, основавайки се на библейските принципи, всички тези християнски групи са се провалили. Сатана спечели чрез „философията„ разделяй и владей “. Понастоящем всяка група мрази другата, преценявайки в сърцата си като индивиди или дори понякога в конфронтация, че на другия е отказано спасение или ще отиде в ада. Всяка група се е превърнала в „бог“, за да съди другия, просто защото смятат, че тяхната логика е най -правилната, а другата е напълно зла. Не противоречи ли това на самите християнски учения, които смятаме, че следваме? Прекарваме много време в спорове за нищо. Представете си логиката на вярата и работата. някой би казал „човек се спасява само чрез вяра“, но докато проповядва, той предупреждава вярващите да обичат ближния си - помагайте на бедните, защо? какво се случва само с вярата, ако не помогна на нуждаещия се? Всички групи, които познавате физически, вършат тези „работи“, но има обрат на логика, който за мен е нищо. Бог всъщност няма да възнагради логиката на разсъжденията, а това, което сте направили. Просто е, във всяка игра има правила, така е и в християнството. След като сте вярващ, Исус ще ви помоли да спазвате неговите правила. Приятелю, няма свобода, неговите правила са дори най -трудните за спазване: обичайте врага си, помагайте на безпомощните, хранете гладните и т.н., всички групирани като любов. Сега дори ако имате вяра, която може да премести планини или да хвърли демони в морето, ако не извършите тези „работи“, излизате от играта - червен картон !, НЯМА СПАСЕНИЕ! Вероятно се разкайвате и започвате отначало, но трябва да следвате правилото на играта. От друга страна, вашата любов се счита за обикновена (еквивалентна на езическата любов), ако не вярвате в Бог, Исус и Светия дух, отново НЯМА гаранция за СПАСЕНИЕ! Сега за какво е този аргумент? нищо не е! това е едно и също нещо, но някой е приложил логика в началото, която сега ви е хванала. Ако основателят на вашата група трябваше да се върне към живота, той всъщност може да ви шокира с признание за съмнителното си намерение, противно на това, което мислите. Моят призив е да правите каквото можете, за да обичате Бога, но никога дори да не мислите да сочите пръст към другия, защото засега само Бог може да каже кой е предназначен за небето или не. Благодаря ти! Патрик

    • Няма „правила или дела за спасение“! Моята Библия ме учи, че СПАСЕНИЕТО е дар. Хората отиват в Ада, не поради неспособността си да дойдат при Христос, а защото няма да дойдат при Христос. Спасението е, когато човек осъзнае, че е грешник и Христос е спасителят и чрез вяра се обръща към Христос за спасение. Ако спасението беше чрез дела от какъвто и да е вид, то някъде Писанието би трябвало да ни каже точно колко човек трябва да работи, за да бъде спасен. Ще бъдат ли достатъчни неделните сутрешни и неделни църковни служби или трябва да отидете на всяка служба, включително в сряда вечер? Трябва ли човек също да дава десятък от доходите си и да ги дава на бедните? Колко точно работа е необходима, за да може човек да отиде на небето? Римляни 11: 6 казва: „И ако по благодат, то вече не са дела; иначе благодатта вече не е благодат. Но ако става въпрос за дела, то няма ли вече благодат: иначе работата вече не е работа. " Не, Бог не брои добрите ни дела за спасение. Докато висеше на кръста, той изрече седем неща. Шестото изказване беше „Свършено е“ (Йоан 19:30). И, скъпи приятелю, можеш да разчиташ на това: свършено е. Няма нищо друго, освен да приемете Исус Христос чрез вяра, да Му се доверите, да разчитате на Него. Вярата и покаянието са едни и същи; те не са две отделни решения. Човек не може да се довери на Христос като Спасител, без да се покае или да промени мнението си. Самият факт, че той се доверява на Христос за спасение, показва, че той е променил мнението си относно греха, спасението и Бог. „Всеки човек, който отива в Рая, отива на свободен пропуск, но този, който отива в Ада, плаща по свой начин.” Благодаря ти! Ерик

      • Библията ни казва в 10 -те заповеди какви са тези дела и действия - нали? Познавам много хора, които твърдят, че имат вяра - но правят нарочно много злонамерени неща - на приятели, семейство и други. Те са фанатици, съдят хората и мислят, че са по -добри от другите. Със сигурност - Исус и Бог в съдния ден - не биха преминали над човек, който през целия си живот прави най -доброто, което може, и има вяра и прие Исус - няма да бъде прехвърлен за някой, който просто вярва, че има вяра - което е дефинирани по различен начин за различните хора. Човек може да си помисли, че са приели Исус и вярата - но очевидно поради своето подло и лошо поведение не са го направили. Наистина ли мислим, че тези хора биха били приети от този, който има вяра - и добри житейски практики/поведение? Както казах, Библията е ясна - с 10 -те заповеди - в какво сме и не бива да участваме.

        • Но че никой човек не е оправдан от закона в очите на БОГ, е очевидно: защото, Праведният ще живее с вяра. Галатяни 3:11. Ако бяхме съдени по Божиите закони вместо вяра, всички щяхме да отидем в ада. Няма нито един човек на планетата Земя, който да спазва всички Божии закони и да успее.

        • 10 -те заповеди са под закона. Моисеевият закон. Исус Христос плати по нашия начин да бъдем свободни от закона. Ако искате да живеете според закона, продължете, има над 500 от тях, от които да избирате. запомнете, ако счупите един, ще счупите всички. Исус плати греховете ни, 10 -те заповеди бяха дадени на израилтяните, които наистина се нуждаеха от тях. След като сте спасени, вие не само сте присадени, не сте спазени от стария закон. Вашият закон е да правите това, което Христос ни казва: Обичайте се един друг, както аз ви възлюбих. Спазвайте моите заповеди (не старите, а Неговите нови) и Исус беше идеалният пример за послушание! Толкова ми омръзна всеки да публикува 10 неща със заповед..да. ИСУС НАСТРОЙ НИ БЕЗПЛАТНО! Помнете, преди да се възнесе, ни беше казано, че ще имаме Великия Утешител, Светия Дух, който да ни ръководи, докато се въздигаше, за да бъдем от дясната страна на Бог. Обичам те Исусе, благодаря ти много за моя дар за вечно спасение, не от дела, а чрез вяра. амин

          • Благодаря ти Брет - дясно СМАК на моя приятел! Благодаря ти Господи Исусе!

          • Добре каза Брет. За да бъдем точни, в Стария завет е имало 613 заповеди. И мисля, че Бог е преценил, че това може да е било твърде много, защото Неговият народ все още греши наляво и надясно. Вярвам, че Той ги съкрати в 10, така че би било много възможно и по -лесно да се подчиним. И хората не трябва да имат извинение да не го правят. Но както казахте ... разбивам едната ... разбивам ги всичките. Аз също Го обичам. Моля се цялото човечество някой ден да се върне при Него. Толкова ме натъжава, че това поколение успя да го изгони, така да се каже, извън града. Да го изведем от нашите училища, от нашите спортни събития. Треньорът вече дори не може да се моли с екипа си. И съдилищата работят срещу Него. Грешното стана правилно и правилното стана грешно. Наложително е ние, християните, да останем силни и усърдни да върнем Бог в нашата страна и в света! Бог да бъде благословен и мир с вас.

          • Съгласен съм с теб. Правото е станало погрешно и грешното е станало правилно. Ето защо Бог върши работата си. Той каза, че ако не можете да ме хвалите като всички вие почитате и похвалявате тези знаменитости и се покланяте на тези художници на дрехи за обувки, аз ще ги отнема, докато моите хора не започнат да ме хвалят и оставям хората ми да се молят отново навсякъде. Как можеш да отнемеш това, което Бог е създал. Той е болен и ядосан. Трябва да имаш Проницателност. Бог да благослови Америка отново.

          • Като римокатолик, който обича Бога с цялото си сърце, ум, душа и сила и преподава тези, които идват в Църквата, в Писанията има случаи на кръщение на бебета. Когато някой дойде в Църквата „той и цялото му семейство бяха кръстени“ Също така, както каза Джеймс „вярата без дела е мъртва“, въпросът е, че ако човек наистина обича Бога, той започва да работи, за да доведе другите при Христос или да направи каквото и да е Бог го моли да направи, за да използва своите „дарове“ за Царството. В брачния празник на Кана сватбеният прием беше свършил с вино. Мария отиде при Исус от името на булката и младоженеца. Това беше първият случай на Мери да ходатайства за някого. На кръста Исус ни я даде, когато каза на Йоан (ученикът, когото Исус обичаше, който представлява всички нас), когато Исус каза „жена ето твоя син, син ето твоята майка“, когато Мария е посочена в Библията като „ Жена ”, която е Мария като новата Ева. И така, тук тя става Майка на всички християни, тъй като Ева е майка на всички създадени същества. Бих ви уведомил всички да прочетете „ранните църковни отци“, които бяха тези, преподавани от апостолите. Евхаристията е източникът и върхът на католическата вяра. Също така никъде в Писанието не се казва, че ако не харесвате вашата Църква, това са учения, лидери, които имате правото да започнете нова църква. Библията ясно казва, че разводът е неприемлив, хомосексуалността е неприемлива. Никъде не може да се оправдае контрацепцията или аборта. Наистина е трудно да устоя на тези вярвания в това политически коректно общество, но аз стоя зад моя Исус и Неговото Слово. Всичко, което искам да направя, е да угаждам на Него и на никой друг.

          • Просто искам да кажа, че навечерието НЕ беше първата жена. Тя беше първата жена, която познава Бог. Хората вече са съществували на земята преди това. В творението Gen 1. Бог е създал човешката раса, както е създал други форми на живот. В Битие 2 (7 -ми ден или период от време) чуваме за Адам и Ева, които са направени от вече съществуващи елементи. Т.е. прах от земята.

          • 27 „Докато говореше тези неща, една жена от тълпата повиши глас и му каза:„ Благословена е утробата, която те роди и тази, която те е кърмила! “

            28 Той каза: „По-скоро блажени онези, които слушат Божието слово и го пазят.“ “Лука 11: 27-28 CSB

          • Амин.

          • Един мой приятел каза веднъж ... „Не си представяйте, че съм дошъл да премахна Закона или Пророците. Дойдох не да ги премахна, а да ги довърша. “ И аз Му вярвам ...

            Това означава, че някой е оправдан с дела, а не само с вяра.

            Това е ясно, нали?

          • Луиджи, делата са начинът, по който хората се оценяват един друг, никога не можем да направим достатъчно, за да изпълним закона. Жертвата на животните беше от съществено значение за опрощаването на греха, докато Исус Христос не стана жертвеното агне за всички.

          • Много добър Брет. Искам само да добавя, че Библията казва, че трябва да се родим отново. Никодим не разбираше какво има предвид. Исус използва примера на вятъра, за да опише Святия Дух. Това се случи за първи път в деня на Петдесетница, когато силен вятър изпълни вярващите с Духа и те започнаха да говорят на други езици, докато Духът им даде изказване. И тъй като Исус е същият вчера днес и завинаги, това все още се случва на истинските вярващи днес, тъй като те напълно вярват в Евангелието и преминават през истинско покаяние и кръщение (пълно потапяне). Всеки ден хваля Господа на езици и английски за този неизказан дар. Благодаря ти Господи.Амин

          • Добре казано! Подобно на начина, по който представихте вярата си. Аз съм християнин и съм с вас в това.

          • Каква религия или църква посещавате? Искам да науча повече за разликата в религиите и християнството, вместо да се придържам към това, на което са ме учили, когато съм израснал като баптист или в църква. Благодаря ти

        • АМИН към десетте заповеди и го пазете Свети ИСУС, любовта ни е винаги Амин

        • Интересно е, че първите книги на Библията се отнасят почти изключително за Десетте Божии заповеди (не така за втория раздел, който след това се фокусира върху Исус „Христос“; което след това е пророкувано, че ще дойде). Докато ние, образованите по английски, днес сме склонни да наричаме всеки от двата „раздела“ като „завещания“ (както е посочено неправилно от „Латинската вулгата“ на Джером), гръцкият (езикът, който всъщност се използва за писане на оригиналните ръкописи), дава яснота че това, което Бог наистина е искал да знаем, идва вместо това от значението на думата „завет“. Тоест Божиите свети думи за нас, а не като „историческа компилация“, както рутинно са установили католиците, английските преводачи, а по -скоро текстът трябва да ни бъде известен като „завет“ (тоест правен договор) между Бог и човек - Думите на Бог, а НЕ комбинация от Бог и човек, както са изразени от някои. „Старият“ беше ясното откровение на Бог за вас (нас) за това, което Той гледаше на греха (срещу Светостта). „Новото“ беше Неговото откровение за вас за това, че Той е променил решението си относно нашите отношения с Него; помнете, че последният път, когато Бог физически е ходил с човека, е бил, когато вашите предци са били създадени за първи път (тогава са живели в Едемската градина); по този начин следващия път Той отново ще ходи рамо до рамо с нас (т.е. Христос в „Новия“ завет). Моля, вижте Йоан, глава 1 относно „Словото“ (и този стих не се отнася за книга).

          Стар = Сега разбираме какво е определението на Бог за греха. Ново = Божият план за Неговото решение / неговите средства за вашето изкупление.

          Чрез двата „раздела“ на Неговите вдъхновени думи вие вече знаете откъде сте дошли, защо живеете в света днес и какво можете да направите (чрез дарбата на Христос, която Той плати), за да промените обстоятелствата си (настояще и бъдеще) ), и по този начин, докато след това наблюдавам „новия човек“, който сте станали (наблюдавам вашите дела за вашия Бог), и като човек на света, тогава започвам да искам да приема същия този безплатен дар от Бог! Колкото и егоистично да изглежда, след това искам парче от същия пай!

          Със сигурност „Старият“ завет (макар че със сигурност ви разкрива миналото чрез „заветите“, написани от реални хора за техния опит в реалния живот), е от значение за вас само в смисъл, че човекът трябва да знае къде има идват от (където стояхме с Бог от правна гледна точка - и по този начин този раздел от писанията наистина постигна това).

          Бих предположил, че никой човек не се интересува от промяна на съществуващите си обстоятелства, освен ако не може да признае къде е бил, сега и къде може да има възможност да отиде - имаме възможност чрез „делата“ само на един; Исус Христос.

          „Старият“ изяснява, набор от Десет заповеди („стандартен“, определен от Бог), който е невъзможно да постигне човек (вие и аз сме порочни създания, дошли на този свят по образа на грешния Адам и Ева). Единственият начин, по който можем да влезем в небето, е чрез Исус Христос; че човек може да разбере Десетте заповеди не прави нищо, за да ви изкупи от греховете ви; не след Исус Христос и Неговото възкресение.

          Бог да те благослови. Ще се моля за теб!

          • Ръсел, но ако вие (ние) Го обичаме, тогава трябва да ИСКАМЕ да следваме Неговите заповеди. И по този начин биха ли ги направили релевантни истина? Обичам братята и сестрите си и обожавах родителите си. Но също така исках да ги покажа чрез своите действия. Но вие сте абсолютно прави, като казвате, че единственият път към Бог/Небето е чрез Неговия Син. Искрено се надявам хората да започнат сериозно да мислят къде искат да прекарат вечността. И вземете това решение СЕГА. Не го отлагайте, защото ако животът ви приключи в един миг и не сте взели решението си да изберете Исус ... ... ще бъде твърде късно. Защо това е толкова трудно за хората да разберат. Правим груба грешка, като сме толкова увлечени от начина си на живот, колите, мобилните си телефони, популярността, гаджетата/гаджетата, как изглеждаме, разпуснатостта…… да, все още вярвам в липсата на секс преди брака. Сигурен съм, че днес ще бъда убит с камъни за тази. Днес те отдават твърде много на секса. ВСЕКИ вид. Което прави всеки акцент върху Бог почти невъзможен. Начинът на мислене „всичко върви“ е задвижван от Сатана. Не управляван от Бог. Понякога имам чувството, че живея в Содом и Гомора вместо в Америка! Събудете се хора. Преди да е твърде късно. ✝️

          • Гръцкият е само един от оригиналните езици, използвани за документиране на Новия Завет. Еврейският е бил езикът на Стария завет.

          • Божий мир за теб, Ръсел. Дай ми линк към твоите християнски уроци.

          • Здравейте, научавам разликата в религиите и християнството. Искам да ви попитам в коя църква посещавате или каква е вашата религия. Тъй като възпитани като баптист и посещаващи църква, те вярват в 10 -те заповеди и аз съм съгласен с това, което казахте

        • С. Къркланд,

          Здравейте! Относно вашите мисли ... просто исках да коментирам малко, защото вярвам, че Святият Дух ме е принудил (както несъмнено Той прави и с вас)

          1. За съжаление за нас, ние не можем да се усъвършенстваме в разсъжденията на Бог защо той е избрал да прави нещата по определен начин; въпреки че със сигурност мисля, че ще дойде момент, в който ще можем да Го попитаме; и може би Той ще се почувства задължен да ни каже, кой знае. За разлика от гръцките философи в библейските времена, нашите филосефеални възгледи днес най -категорично трябва да бъдат проверени спрямо библейските писания; и ние следваме Божието Слово, нали?

          2. Вярата в Исус Христос като Божи Син, според мен, наистина изисква известна доза вяра (прости ми, ако съм те разбрал погрешно, но изглежда, че по -скоро искаш да ги разделиш, но аз не виждам едното без другото). Вярно е, че вярата, която показвам на Исус, която имам в Него от ден на ден, може наистина да е различна от вярата, която имам в Него като Божи Син; Виждам и много хора, които според мен имат основателна вяра в Исус като Христос / Месията / Божият Син и въпреки това съм виждал как самите те се държат лошо с другите. Сега, въпреки че може да не „разсъждавам“, че това е „правилно“, вярвам, че Писанията подкрепят, че а.) Спасението ни е дадено свободно (по Божията благодат, чрез което със сигурност не го заслужаваме), б.) Исус наистина е платил цената за това спасение (нищо, което имаме или което можем да направим, не би могло да го плати; и затова Исус беше „задължен“ да умре на кръста за нашите грехове. И че много религии (наистина много секти на Протестантската и католическата вяра) водят битка точно за това, което е необходимо за това спасение и всъщност аз вярвам, че това е най -трудният въпрос, спорен между протестанти и католици.

          3. Самият Исус беше ясен като камбана, че не можем да стигнем до Отца „освен“ чрез Него; не чрез човека, тогава може би чрез Исус, но през периода на Исус! Всъщност този въпрос беше толкова важен, за да може Исус да преодолее, че Той се бори много с фарисеите (политическите, както и духовните водачи на земя от хора, в която 99% процента не можеха да четат или пишат и зависят от свещеничеството, за да им „каже“ какво казва Писанието и какво означава това); фарисеите, садуцеите и т.н. Назовете вашата група ... Исус наистина беше в конфронтация с тях; грешаха - той беше прав. Той завърши с това, което Той знаеше, че резултатът ще бъде - смърт на кръста.

          4. И накрая, ще видим лошо поведение; независимо от вашата вяра, това, което казвате, че сте готови да направите за Бог и т.н. Бог наистина ви обича (всъщност мнозина са съгласни, че Неговата любов е дадена по начин, който човек дори не може да разбере); и освен това, вярвам, че той НЯМА да изтръгне вашето спасение от вас (отново ви е дадено свободно, без нищо, което можете да направите, за да го спечелите). Павел казва в Римляни, че спасението е или чрез Божията „благодат“, или чрез „дела“. Той мотивира, че трябва да се облегнете на едно или друго, но тази „благодат“ в неговите разсъждения ни кара да разберем защо трябва да го разглеждаме като „подарък“. Сега може ли да се промени връзката ви, може ли да се промени комуникацията ви? Абсолютно! Но мисля, че Писанията показват, че Бог казва, че Духът Му не винаги ще се бори с човека (Битие 6: 3); подаръкът винаги ще бъде ваш, но обстоятелствата ви с Бог може и да не са.

          Обърнете внимание също, че не мисля, че Писанията подкрепят идеята, че вашето влизане в небето се основава на това дали можете да се превърнете в безгрешен, свят човек. На вас и на мен е даден подаръкът, надявам се и двамата да сме посегнали да го получим (в резултат на вярата ни в Исус). Но независимо, че се стремим да бъдем „различен човек“, мисля, че все още сме облечени в едно и също; все още сме грешници и винаги ще се нуждаем от Спасител, който може и ще ни прости греховете; ние не стигаме до точка, в която „постигнахме“ духовен успех и сега „спечелихме“ пътя си към небето. Какво е писал някой по -рано ... че човек, влизащ в рая, не е платил нищо за това (за това е платено), но все пак човек, който влиза в ада, е платил за това със собствените си дела (никой друг не трябва да плаща за това - ние “ направихме го сами).

          Благодаря ви и Бог да ви благослови!

        • Точно така!

        • Няма по -голям или по -малък грях, всичко погрешно е погрешно и всички ние не се лишаваме от Божията слава.

      • Лк 6:46 четем: Защо ме наричаш: Господи! Господи! и не прави това, което ти казвам? (Всички имаме вяра в Исус, но ако не свършим работата. Какво се случва с нашата вяра.) Можете също така да се обърнете към Мат. 7:21 нататък ... Исус не само имаше вяра в бащата, но и завърши делото на Бог, бащата .. (Йоан 17: 4) Следователно, не бива да казваме само вяра или да работим сами, но и вярата, и работата ще ни донесат спасение. Амин.

        • Мнозина предполагат, че богословските мисли (учението) на апостол Павел са били / са противоречиви на тези на Яков. Ще перифразирам тук (прости ми) ...

          За мен Павел беше изключително ясен, когато предположи, че човек не може да стигне до небето в резултат на техните дела; Не, напротив, „... САМА вяра ...“ заявява Апостолът. Джеймс, от друга страна, изглежда вярва в точно обратното; „... вяра без дела ...“ пише Джеймс ... това би изглеждало доста лошо за тези, които дори не са способни на физически „дела“ като мен. Защо не бъдете по -конкретни, ако имаше изключения?

          Докато за повечето английски читатели на библейските ръкописи, първоначално написани предимно на еврейски, гръцки и арменски (родният език на Исус), мнозина смятат, че тези двама мъже са в пълен конфликт помежду си по отношение на плана на спасението.

          Сега в буквалния смисъл човек може много лесно да види „ъгъла“, от който всеки човек е дошъл да наблюдава този на „делата“ за Божието царство; противоречието, което мнозина биха искали да окачим нашата вяра днес (или липсата на такава).

          В случая на Павел той просто заявяваше, че тези, които биха искали да играят на картата „произведения“, някой ден ще дойдат да се окажат, че за съжаление грешат; тоест, Скриптурата винаги е била ясна относно нашето спасение, заплатено от това единствено дело на Исус Христос, Божият Син. ТОВА САМА РАБОТА стана изкуплението / цената, необходима за нашето изкупление; Знаем, че Той наистина го е платил / преминал с него и че поради това Бог предлага спасението на вас и аз СВОБОДНО (между другото истинският „дар“ не се връща в крайна сметка от получателя; в един момент в връзката на даряващия може наистина да е разочарован от получателя, но това не означава само по себе си, означава, че може да се каже, че оригиналният „подарък“ е променен / променен). Ако е така, наистина ли е бил подарък на първо място? Може би бихме го разглеждали като някакъв вид наем или лизинг, който включва някакво условие, при което трябва да го върнете? Доколкото ми е известно, в Писанията не се говори за нищо подобно.

          Ако от нас се изискваше да предоставим на Бог някаква „работа“, защо бяхме дадени от Него десет заповеди (написани в камък), но тогава, по отношение на спасяването ни от ямите на ада, ни беше позволено да използваме собственото си въображение за конкретни произведения, които биха били необходими; тогава защо също няма ред на значимост? Тогава също се чудя какво бих могъл да осигуря на Божието Царство, което Той вече няма? Дали това ще бъде видът работа, която предоставям, или качеството й; сърдечен или мрънкащ, докато работя; какво тогава?

          Джеймс просто твърди, че състоянието на връзката на човека с Бога може ясно да бъде разкрито в нечии произведения. Ако съм развълнуван и наистина се "влюбвам" в нещо, мълча ли за това? Ако току-що съм признал, че Христос сега живее в мен и сега ме ръководи и насочва, възможно ли е дори да държа с мълчание какво е направил за мен; и за моята дестинация в свят в предшественика? Ще живея в имение (истинско място) и ще нося корони, както прави крал, но нямам намерение да обяснявам на другите как им се дава същата възможност? Не моите приятели, нито моето семейство?

          Изисква се доверие в Бог. Вярата ми в Исус Христос е необходима. Изисква се признаването на моите грехове, като искам прошка от Исус Христос. Това са въпроси, които определят вярата ми; всички са необходими според Божието Слово.

          Ако мъж (или жена) изпълни тези изисквания, Библията обяснява как този човек ще бъде „спасен“ от Ада (благодат, дадена от Бог, въпреки че всички ние със сигурност не заслужаваме такава благодат). Нещото, което се изискваше от Бог, струваше на Своя Син Исус неговия плътски живот (което би трябвало да изисква душите ни), и въпреки това независимо от отношението на човека към Него, Исус наистина плати нашата цена (ни даде). И все пак студеното неверие в Исус е толкова широко разпространено днес, колкото и тогава (може би дори повече).

          Долния ред? Спасението е подарък за човека, който ни струва вяра и молба за прошка. Като подарък, той е безплатен, но е необходимо да посегнете и да го вземете; тя няма да ни бъде наложена от Бог. След като бъда приет, мога да правя неща, които могат да повлияят на моята комуникация / отношенията ми с Бог, но въпреки това притежавам дарбата - лично аз вярвам, че тези „неща“ ще повлияят и на моето положение в кралството (тоест „короните“ ме наградиха от Исус), когато ние като светии се върнем да управляваме земята с Исус при неговото второ идване.

          Краткото тук е, че трябва да призная, че са ми отнели много години на изучаване и молитва, за да дойда да реша тези духовни проблеми за себе си, но благодаря на Бог за неговото Дълготърпение (желанието му да ме изчака да „събера действията си заедно“). ') Моля се Той да ви позволи същото!

          • Russell, the language of Jesus was not Armenian. It was Aramaic. ✝️

          • Well said Russell!! Благодаря ти!!

          • The language of Jesus, was Aramaic, not Armenian. just letting you know. You can Google the distinguishing details your self. Armenia is not Israel, different country. Also the Hebrew s wrote the books of scripture known as the old testament. Whe jesus lived in The land of Israel, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Galilee etcetera, the languageds commonly spoken were Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Latin. Jesus is a Greek version of the name of the incarnated son of God, Yashua, was his Hebrew name, which he probably was called by his parents and friends, people of that time would have used Hebrew and Greek. Peter is a latin version of the Hebrew name Kepha, both names mean rock or stone.

        • May I just point out here that Jesus did the work. He fulfilled the law, where none of us are able be causes in lives in us. That is why Jesus is the only way to God. Because only he lived without sin fulfilling God's law. Our Faith that Jesus is the only way, that Jesus paid our debt for our sins by sacrificing himself for us, our unblemished lamb sacrifice, that Jesus rose from the dead and is alive now in his glorified body that Jesus is seated on the right side of God, that Jesus intercedes for us with God, that God sees the righteousness of Jesus when he looks upon us, that we are God's children adopted by Him to be God's heirs with Jesus, and that God's children, that Jesus is our Lord , that as God's children we will spend eternity with God — this is Faith. We are all sinners. God saves sinners. Salvation does not mean we don't sin anymore, it means we are forgiven. We are given the Holy Spirit to live within us to show us our sins and assist us in following the way of Christ. But, we still fail, still sin. The Good News, the Gospel, is that Jesus fulfilled all the law. By believing and having faith we are forgiven because Jesus already paid the debt for our sin. God made it simple for us. We need only to believe, have faith.

      • What a wonderful explanation of Salvation through Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Благодаря ти.

      • Loved your post….well said.

      • Brother, I totally agree. I just know that there are some people who don't want ylto come to that realization.

      • Too many people are confusing the “works” (feeding the poor, helping the needed, etc) with the “works” (being circumcised, lamb sacrificial, etc). Read James verse 2 and Acts 15, also see Romans v.3 thru v5. The works of circumcision and sacrifice is no longer needed because Jesus became our sacrifice. If we believe in him we are saved. Don't worry about how many poor you have to feed or clothe, its not about a number but rather by the heart. Feed whomever you can because you want to, because it cones from the heart. God's kingdom can't be purchased with money or by whole had fed more poor people enters heaven first, its measure by what you can give. See Luke 21, the poor woman who gave 2 coins, she gave more the the rich man because she gave all that she had.

      • Hi Eric, sure it is through accepting and believing the Truth that Jesus is the son of God one is saved, but repentance requires behaving in morally righteous conduct, so works Matter. You can't believe in Jesus and go around mistreating people men or women, Eve n if they don't know Jesus as you do. That's what is meant faith without works is dead. When one lives fully, abiding in the word, which means living by Jesus teaching, as written in the Bible and as you are led by the holy Spirit in obedience to the commandments of Jesus, you are living in the way he taught. Jesus, the son of God, referred to as in John gospel, as the word, who was with god from the beginning, is not a book. The word of God is the action of the father, as the scripture, the writing that is the book called The Bible, shows us, God said let there be etcetera. Salvation comes by accepting Jesus, but you also need to follow him, and that's for the rest of your life here on Earth

      • Awesome reply

      • Matthew 25 sort of shoots the faith alone argument down. “Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'

        40 “The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'

        41 “Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'

        44 “They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'

        45 “He will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'

        46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” It is grace that causes us to build the most hospitals in the world, to start the St. Vincent de Paul orgainzation that helps the poor and the Knights of Columbus who give millions to needy people all over the world. As info, St. Ignatius of Antioch wrote to his Churches he was Bishop over when he was being carted off to Rome to be eaten by lions. To the Smyrneans he wrote, “Where the Bishop is, there is Jesus Christ, and there is the Catholic Church” He wrote that in 107 AD and St. John the Apostle taught him.

    • Patrick,

      Your thoughtful response to the differences between Catholic and Baptist was nothing short of phenomenal.

      I live in the south where I now live and where Baptists abound. What I find astounding in this day and age is the amount of arguing among the various factions of Christians in the south. As Christians are we not all under the same umbrella? It's terribly frustrating to see so many Christians fighting against other Christians — and for what their own twist or interpretation of a verse in the bible so that they can feel superior over the other denomination?! Еха. How sad and unchristian-like is that in the name of our Lord.

      Relax people and pray God forgive your egos and self-righteous attitudes.

      Thank you Patrick for helping us out on this one.

      • At the end we all fall into two categories, Fans of Christ and Followers of Christ. Every day we all look for ways to make our life's more conferrable and have more than we need. When we accept Jesus Christ as our savior is when we begin to die, because we need to carry our cross by denying our self and giving God 100% to him . Following Jesus is caring the cross. Feeding helping and loving each other and most important following our Lord Jesus christ. Fan are peoeple who claim to love God but wont feed the hungry, won't help others in need, don't do what God has asked to do. So are you a follower or a Fan. Time to carry our croos and Trust in Jesus with all our hearts.

        • JOnathan, reading the book “Not a Fan” by Kyle Idleman right now. A very though provoking book. Living a life of following Jesus Christ should look very different from the worlds way of living lives. Feeding the poor, trying to right certain social wrongs (though the Church, not government), and etc. all products of a changed heart. These “works” won't get you to heaven, but these works indicate you have truly accepted Christ in your heart. What is important to you is usually made clear when you/people look at what you do with your time.

      • That you and I agree or disagree on the meaning or translation of Bible Scripture should mean nothing to either of us (personally that is). That we carefully study scripture and that we heartfully witness to one another should definatly be of highest concern; as well as our willingness to love one another enough to be willing to step up for Christ and help people understand God's intended meaning of His Word; it is vital. Indeed, even Christ Himself spoke of a day when believers would be fighting Satan (as he would exist in the form of many who would misrepresent God's Word).

        Today I would argue that there are many and Satan would be thrilled if we would accept false prophecies (Mat 7:15, 23:13-36, 24:4, 5, 11, 23-26, 26:60, Mk 13:22) and teachers (Mt 5:19, 15:9; 1 Tim 1:7; 4:2; 6:3; 2 Tim 4:3; Title 1:11; 2 Pet 2:1). i'm not suggesting anything written here is specifically 'false' but I know that we live in the times that Jesus Himself spoke of / warned us about. To agree that anything and everything should be accepted because many have come claiming to know Christ (and do so because we must all get along), is perilous. Many in Christ's time were not agreeable with even Jesus Himself and many misunderstood God's Word. Doctrine may separate many but it is up to us to bring the truth ( of what Jesus said). It will not be easy to fight for the right thing; not even among fellow Christians.

        • I agree, there is a difference in head knowledge and heart knowledge. Our relationship with Christ should be lived out. We reflect God to the world by how we live our life. The Holy Spirit will guide us in the way to go through God's word. We're not to judge others. Yes, we can make discernments and act accordingly but the Lord will be and is the ultimate judge and thank you Jesus, He is!

      • And does that not sound a bit self righteous? Cast out the first stone he who has NO sin…. let the rest put their rocks back in their pockets lest they should turn on them.

        Does it not occur to you that SATAN causes strife amongst the saved? Does a man or woman really need to add to it?

    • It is freedom,,,if you really have faith,,,not easy,,,but comforting,,,liberating of this world of hate,,,,faith,,,how can you honestly have faith in God if you dont show love in any sense so to speak,,,God is love,,,and truth,,,and both will set you free,,,,genuine love and truth,,,and the bible says you cant make it to God unless you come through Jesus,,,which is He in the flesh,,see,,,Jesus was our example and our savior,,,our He set a foundation,,,and showed us the way,,,you right about alot thougg,,,like ,,,why the fuss,,,thats not love at all,,,i just love Gods word and sharing it amongst people,,,AND SO,,,,,IT SAYS Romans 12New International Version (NIV)

      A Living Sacrifice 12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

      Humble Service in the Body of Christ 3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

      Love in Action 9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

      14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[c] Do not be conceited.

      17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[d] says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

      “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[e] 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

    • Patrick

      You sound confused and ignorant. Please have several seats!

      • R j. Ти сериозен ли си? Wow you sure are calling the kettle black. You are very pompous problably view yourself as Elite. As i feel so sorry for you . Your xomment shows you arw super judgemental . Who is the one who can judge ? Id re evaluate your belief your a christian or follow anything like . To say i have faith oh i believe but judge like that is so absolutely terrifying . Wars so many because of religion . You can certainly. See why. Sorry i would be ashamed to introduce you in any capacity as a Christian .I will forgive you as perhaps ita your first day as a wannebe “Christian”. You should speak to someone as you need it. I hope you find peace within yourself. Amen . Praise God Praise Jesus Praise the holy ghost .

        I also give thanks to the Christians on earth such as Mother Theresa as example. I know their are thousands who give so much. Not for acknowledgement but to help the wrakest poorest sickest of he earth.

    • Thankyou everyone for sharing the your thoughts… some really clear my doubts and some of us really need helps though,.. may god bless you all and pray for me too… i know i use to have lots of doubts when i don't go church or listen to people who think they are good and tell on me or judge on me like God is everywhere if i don't go church also i didn't do bad things or i don't need to go to church…. reading your sharings are great. May god bless you all. Амин

    • Thank you so much Patrick. Your words sank into me and I am greatful for your clarity. I was raised a Catholic and only by God's calling I was just baptized yesterday in a Baptist Church. I feel a closeness to God and a thirst for his Word that I did not have before. I was saved in Florida when I visited a very good friend's church, and came to NC to continue my relationship and closenesss with Jesus. I am very thankful that God has called me out and I am patiently waiting to see what He has in store for me. Hoping you continue sharing, May God continue to Bless You !

      • I too, was raised a Catholic. Like many people, I had questions about why we believed certain things. Things that I could NOT find in the BIBLE. I was told “that is a mystery of the Church.” Well, we got it from somewhere….I was also told I was wicked for even asking those questions. In my 23rd year, I was taken to church by a friend. There I discovered Jesus. I was saved and I have never looked back. In my opinion, Baptists worship Christ. Catholics worship the CHURCH, the DENOMINATION. They reach things that are simply not in Scripture.

        • As a devout Catholic l think it is a disgrace that u feel the need to follow all these money hungry pastors! We believe in infant baptism and when we get older we do our communion and confirmation I am not pointing fingers but to me it seems that these fake pastors prey on the weak and.make u pay them .look at Joel Osteen look at the Duggars. If that's where you found Jesus l feel bad for you. He lives inside of me. And l don't bother him with my problems. He has done enough for me. And he isthe son of God not God….

          • Taking advice from A devout Catholic is no different then hearing out a Muslim or Jehovah witness in my view. The whole Joel Osteen thing I get but calling pastors crooks for accepting tithes is a little to extreme. I've read plenty of great comments; here In this thread but I guess you just scrolled down and ignored everything because you refuse to listen to the word of God.

          • Elle Martins –

            Jesus is God. God is ONE, but God is the Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I am not a Catholic, but I do think that Catholics believe in the Trinity of God.

        • Hi Maureen, They are not letting me comment on abuse in my family from a priest in the Catholic Church. Unbelievable! I am glad you found some peace! Stella

    • All i have to say is our opinion means nothing. If we listen he speaks to us. If we love him we listen to him and do what he tells us. If we have faith we can let go and fall back he will catch us. If we give all we have because he tells us to he will always provide for us. Are we suppose to pray to saints for our needs? Не не сме. The only person we pray to is GOD the father. We ask that he hear us in JESUS name. Will decisions we make get us to heaven? I think not. Following and doing what GOD tells us to do will get us to heaven. Can we be prayed out of hell? No we cannot. If we live a sinful life we dont get another chance. Now while you have breath live right. Love GOD with all your heart and soul. Bless others with your blessings. Love one another as he has loved us.

    • It doesn't say by faith “alone”. Secondly what about the parable of the three servants . ? One burried the money the other doubled and lastly the other did so well with his works of the gifts he charged the others to give all to him. Listen we are on this huge old ship ship metaphor for catholic church. Who was built by one master builder to sail the open water of faith on one and only one destination to go to God or heaven. This ship was built over 2000 years ago and is still sailing. Sure there were over the years evil captains. Or bad stewards. Or even corrupt passengers. But still the ship never changed its course. Set by the first captain the Apostle Peter or rock or cephus from Simon. Now during this voyage that is still going on today we have passengers or deck hands that think they would do better if they had there own ship. There own church type. As long as it is on the same heading as the mother ship. So the mother ship says sure why not. Go ahead and build yourself another ship to voyage with us. ….. Now where are they going to get the materials to build there new ship. From the mother ship of course. Now they are in the middle of the sea and want a newer style ship and the only place they can get it is from the big old original ship. Now some of these newer ships are fast and can menouver better or can better read the stars or charts but in all other ships built, churches that started you will see the similarity and style of the original one who was designed by the one who is the master carpenter Christ. … Who charged Peter to feed his flock…..

      • When studying my Bible, I have found it very helpful to identify the audience that is being spoken to. This helps to discern what is being taught, to whom. Sometimes the audience is Jewish, sometimes Gentile, sometimes saved, sometimes not. All these things matter when interpreting the Bible.

    • Pat. Works are a proof your are saved it what flows out of your heart. Salvation is the gift Jesus gives you when he knocks at your door if you let him in.

    • Wow, Patrick, you hit it right on. Много добре казано. I'm a Catholic and have always brought up this point to people. Don't point fingers but rather love one another and do “works” as helping the need, feeding the poor, etc.

    • Амин.

    • So true dear. Your point proven below 91 comments Satan has won in dividing us through “religion” I believe God may not care so much about all the different religious practices if the core is belief in the one true God. Thankyou for elaborating so well!!

    • Еха. I'm sure if there was such a thing as a caring God, the first thing he would do is ban paragraphs even approaching this length. Would save us all from eternal tedium

    • Thank you very much Sir patrick. You are very sound in your doctrine. Thanks for addressing the issue of different beliefs in our christian life today.Surely, we are wasting our time pointing fingers at others. The only thing we can do rightnow is to do what God wants us to do. That's it. Once again, thank you very much.

    • My beleive that Catholic Church originated when Roman Emperator Constantine the Great (330 ac) intervened Christians and reorganise them by incorporating pagan culture to Christianity example Semiramis and Tammuz mother and the child equal Mary and baby Jesus Constantine corrupted christian leaders with wealth and power being Constantine the great Christian leader he manipulated everything about the beleive since then Roman Venetians Black Nobelity have managed to control the Catholic Church using Christianity's as a mascarate governing from the dark up to now with JESUITS creators of the New World order One World Religion (no Christians) So the main difference between the two Churches is Catholics man made religion, Baptist Church Christ made Church (English my second language)

    • It's god's fault for having non believers

  2. That is not true about Baptist – Children and infants are baptised. No one is denied baptism. However Baptists pray only to God in Jesus name. The Trinty: father, son, and holy ghost is the core of the Baptist religion.

      It is true about Baptist. We DO NOT baptize infants or children under 12 unless they show great understanding of the things of God and salvation.

      • There are many different types of “Baptist” churches, some completely independent from any organization and some members of “Baptist” organization. I am a member of a “Southern Baptist” church. This means our church is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, we agree with the tenants of the Southern Baptist Convention, and support missions through the Southern Baptist Convention. The Southern Baptist Convention does not believe in salvation by baptism. Therefore, infants/babies are not baptized by the church. Our church does perform baby dedications where the parents dedicate themselves to raising the child in a Christian home, teaching them about Christ. Also, the Southern Baptist Convention does not assign a minimum age at which children can be baptized. In the Southern Baptist Church baptism is an outward sign of the salvation we have been provided through Christ. The pastor will spend time in conversations with anyone that wishes to be baptized to ensure they have a clear understanding of what it means to be saved and that they have accepted this gift so generously provided.

  3. everyone has a chance to get to heaven no matter what you believe. As long as you live your life as a good person and a loving, caring person you will be rewarded in the next life. Doesn't matter if you think infants should be baptized or not. Catholics believe in baptism as the forgiveness of the original sin, not all sins. To get forgiveness for sins you do in the future you must ask forgiveness and you will recieve it. Baptism doesnt make one immune to sin. That's what Catholics believe.

    • Jarred –

      I feel compelled to tell you that it does matter greatly what we believe. The Bible tells us that the only way to God is through Jesus. Jesus is the only way. Nothing else leads to God. Being a “good person” certainly does not get us into heaven. None of us will ever be so good that we do not commit any sin. Sin permeates through us, it has been in the human nature since the fall of Adam and Eve. We are selfish, or angry, or desirous, all of which are sins. God and sin cannot and do not mix. That is why the punishment for sin is death – separation from God eternally. Jesus is the only one that ever lived on earth without sin. That is why he could be our sacrifice for our sins. Only his sacrifice of his life can save us from eternal separation from God. Only Jesus. I pray you understand this and recognize that there is nothing within yourself that can get you to God, it comes only through Jesus.

  4. Romans 12New International Version (NIV)

    A Living Sacrifice 12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

    Humble Service in the Body of Christ 3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

    Love in Action 9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

    14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[c] Do not be conceited.

    17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[d] says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

    “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[e] 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. AND THATS WORD,,WITH THAT BEING SAID,,,I LOVE ALL OF YOU GUYS,,AND LETS NOT INDIVIDUALLY LOSE OUR WAY FOCUSING ON THE NEXT MANS FAITH OR RELIGIOUS PRACTICES,,,,ITS GOOD TO HELP A BROTHER OR SISTER,,,BUT IF YOU AINT DOING IT IN LOVE YOU JUST MAKING NOISE,,,READ THE CORINTHIANS,,,GOD IS LOVE,,,,THE DEVIL IS SNEAKY,,,TSSS,,,CATHOLIC VS BAPTIST, ,,? TRUE CHRISTIANS WORK IN HARMONY,,,THE BODY OF CHRIST,,,THE LEFT HAND CARES ABOUT THE RIGHT HAND,,,,LOVE LOVE LOVE,,,GENUINE,,,GOD KNOWS YOUR HEART,,,

    • Амин. Добре казано. In the end it is all about how much we love. Anything we do without love is useless. 1 Corinthians ch 13. How are we ever going to be a good example to non believers when all we do is argue among ourselves. It's about the love. When we have love, we do because of that love. We are all so very loved. We need to act like children of God.

  5. Brilliant Patrick, God in your heart, openess in your mind. No matter the vigor in opposing differences, someone must be wrong.

  6. I believe this is a biased account of the differences. As I see it, in the baptist faith people are to be baptized when they feel that God is working in them. It is their choice to make a big step in their faith, not anyone else's. Some children do get baptized, some in first or second grade and others wait until they are adults. Either way, Catholics and Baptists both love Jesus and find common ground in that. Nothing should inhibit these feelings and it's a beautiful thing to share within people of this world.

    • Sorry i disagree, from the beginning catholics forced the people to be baptised while they are infant.

      • More than 50,000,000 batists died because of infant baptism which is not in the bible. They were tortured.

        • How can infants be tortured when they don't even know anything idt.

        • Just because you read it on the internet doesn't mean it's true. This is a completely false statement. People should be spreading love. NOT LIES. And just so you know this has been proving incorrect. It was made up by someone that had something against the catholic church. It's kinda funny.

      • Another false statement.

  7. Ephesians 2:8-10

    For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

  8. Sorry to break it to you but there is NO GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • sorry break it to you but there is GOD..

    • You're fool john…. Because of your foolishness lucifer had blinded your mind.

    • Why do you believe there is no God?

    • You're in for a wonderful surprise–there is a God and a heaven! Those who trust in the shed blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross will spend eternity with Him in heaven. But be warned also, there is a Satan and hell. Satan would have you believe there is no God. He plants doubts in your mind and then laughs at you. Satan's real enemy is God, Himself, because already knows he has been defeated.

    • Hi John and thank you! My sibling was raped by a priest in church on Easter Sunday many years ago. He never really recovered nor did my family. The church handled this horrifically from the top down. People just be kind to one another and just stop all of your nonsense!

    • Thank you John, Only 24percent of Americans go to church every Sunday. After reading all of these posts, I can see why. Just be kind to one another. Ps They probably won't post this either!

  9. He's right there is no God! GO JOHN!

  10. WHY CAN'T I SUBMIT A COMMENT? THERE IS NO GOD AND IT'S TRUE.

    • You can submit the the commit that there is no GOD. That's fine. Make that sacrifice at the alter of the god known as atheism. Psalm 14:1 Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.”. My friend if you had only seen what my eyes have seen in the way GOD moves then you would change your mind and your heart. I bet you are a good man and I pray that GOD will move in a mighty way in your heart.

      • God, (nor believers in Him) have to prove that He exists. It is up to non-believers that He doesn't exist.

    • Why do u think there is no God?

    • Hi John, Thank you. I submitted a comment that my older sibling was abused severely by a priest and they didn't post it either! It caused years of problems for my brother and our entire family. Not sure they will post this either. People please stop the nonsense and be kind to one another!

    • Thank you John, My sibling was severely abused by a priest many years ago. It ruined his life and caused years of turmoil and pain. People, please be kind to one another and stop your nonsense!

    • Thank you John!!!!!

    • Hi John, They aren't posting my comments either. There is something wrong with this site! Take care, Stella

    • Thank you John, My posts aren't being posted either. Защо? They are honest, true and pertain to the conversation. Why all the censorship? Благодаря ти.

  11. So in reading all of the comments I have come to the understanding that, not a lot of us read our bible as much as we should, and most people are relying on what someone is telling them instead of finding the truth.

    What I believe back by scripter KJV:

    1. GOD and the son and the Holy Spirit are one in the same. John 1:1King James Version (KJV)

    1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2. You can only have everlasting life if you believe in the son of God Jesus Christ.

    John 3:16King James Version (KJV)

    16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    3. Baptism is a public display of faith like a wedding ring on your finger it is not a requirement for salvation. Notice that the eunuch of great authority believed first then he was baptized.

    30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

    31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

    32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

    33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

    34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

    35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

    36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

    37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

    38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

    39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

    4. I don't care how GOOD you are; you can't go to heaven because of your (Do GOODER) ways; other wise there is no reason for God to deliver his son as a sacrifice for the world for us for me. We are all sinners.

    Ephesians 2:8-9King James Version (KJV)

    8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

    9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    Romans 3:9

    9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

    10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

    11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

    I have so much more to say but I know, know one will read it all, I pry that the catholic churches come to a true understanding. But I fear that they all be lead astray, because of there rituals, ides and beliefs. They will believe in the anti Christ and the new world order and fall inline. Like the pig to the butcher's.

    God forgive us all.

    • You are so wrong u can't base ur biblical knowledge on the King James Version. That's nuts. So let me ask u did u know Hebrew wasn't Jesus' real language? Do u know the name of the first bibke. How can y believe a bible that was changed by man? That is nutsGodis the father if Jesus not the same

  12. Baptist believe once baptized. They are not responsible for future sins. They are not accoutntable. They believe you can continue to sin. They believe they never loose salvation which is against the sceipt Hebrew10-26

    • Im sorry keith, i'll show you some verses how died and He promised that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternel life. Once saved is always saved.

      John 10:28 ” And I gave them eternal life, and they shall never perish…..

      I John 2:1 uf we sin, we have an advocate with the Father Jesus Christ.

      I John 3:9 ” Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him and he cannot sin because he is born of God.

      My body can commit sin but my soul is covered by the blood of Christ, that the sins which i committed are washed and will wash away. That is why i am saved forever.

    • Keith- Baptists do NOT believe that baptism saves us. We do not believe that baptism gives us the “right” to continue to sin. Baptists believe that the price of sin is death and separation from God. The only way we can receive salvation is through Christ, because Jesus – who never sinned – took on the punishment for our sins. He took on my death and separation from God so I do not need to. If I accept Christ as my Savior and Lord, then my salvation is written in stone. I will continue to sin. Salvation does not mean we no longer sin. It means we are forgiven for our sins. But, when one accepts Christ as our Savior and Lord, and truly understands this gift that is given to us, we are humbled. And we have a desire to become more like Christ in our lives. Our hearts change. We become less self-centered, and more Christ-centered. But, we will continue to live in this broken world where sin permeates everything. We will still experience anger, lust, jealousy, envy, self-centeredness – all of which are sins. But we will repent and ask for forgiveness. We will trust Jesus and his promises. We will continue on with our walk, studying the Word and praying for guidance, and praising our Lord. For we know, even as sinners, God chose to save us.

  13. Who is really right? All your arguments show that some are claiming to be righteous by their believes, only God at the end will tell us who was right, these are so-called Christians who hate others and claim to be right because they don't a common belief, may God bless and forgive you all .

    • God alresdy tells us what is right and who is right. If your salvation is based on what the scripture says, then your are right and true church because salvation is the major doctrine of the bible.

    • According to 1John 1:9 we are saved by the grace that is given by God not priest nor pastors our faith as Christians are based on faith and faith without works is dead .if you think good deeds alone can save you decieve yourself .we must be born again means recieve the person of Jesus who gave us His spirit to guide us all the way.Its serious we must be true to the scriptures because God came to our level with holy blood and offered it as the price for our redemption.we are standing on holy ground.be ye holy does not indicate that we can in our own atrength be holy but Gods power to guide us thru forgiveness which requires us to repent daily by confessing our faults no one follows Jesus as holy but get holiness and He makes us aware daily thru open communication .we are not judging anyone but His word lets us know with warnings we ought to share fir the soul saving of others.the end is sure ti us all and God will judge be true and everyman declared a liar .we must warn people of the freedom of grace nit to die in their sins but to enter into eternal life be true to God he already made a way because he knows read it 1 John 1:9

  14. Who is free from sin Catholics or Baptists? The Bible says all have sinned and come short of God's glory. There are some Christians who claim to live without sin, may God help them in Jesus mighty name, Amen.

    • Those who believe that Jesus is the only Savior by faith and not by good works are free from sin and they shall perish. That's what the bible says brother.

    • And one more thing brother Terence, catholic is not a christian but a pagan, idolatrous. Only christian in name just like constantine the one who started catholic.

    • Christians are fanatuvs!! how dare u call us Catholics a pagan please stop.

      • People, people, adults arguing over religions. The definition should not tell fables in the first place. Nobody hates any other religious person just because they believe in something else. Why do you have such a bad impression about Catholics? Leave them alone. This is America with freedom of religion, or have you forgotten that? Be grateful to exist.

  15. The key concept is “born in God”. Sin becomes awkward and unnatural? The devil or deceiver is revealed by the context that deceive is used

    Jesus said not to marvel in anyone that the holy spirit touched, then the letters they state that the apostles marveled. Is born in God when things seem to be part of a plan far beyond what we can see and control?

    To say there is no god is thinking a diverging entropic universe will eventually create an converging self order out of nearinfinte variables. What I seen in life makes fantasy, starwars and star trek boring.

    I hope I am “born in God”, due to these, it will only be known if the savoir knows me when my time is up. Religion is second to love, joy and salvation, this is the trinity.

  16. I think the sooner all people understand that all those letters to the churches in the new testament writings were by the first Bishops of the Catholic Church the better off they will be. Please stop using the bible to dispute Catholicism. That's kind of like punching your mother because you don't think she fed you the right vegetables at the dinner table. If anyone here can prove the church established by Jesus Christ was not the Catholic Church then I would say that the entire religion of Christianity is a sham. After all Jesus only established a single Church and not many churches as the protestant world would like to believe. Jesus also stated that the gates of hell would never prevail against it (which means it could never and will never tell a lie). The only church on earth that can claim continuity all the way back to Christ is the Catholic Church. That is historical fact. If not let me be damned to eternal darkness because there wouldn't be a single soul in heaven I would even care to meet.

    • While you have good intentions with your history lessons I simply can't take a person serious that ignores the word of God. I pray for all Catholics I really do and hope those of you that are devout will stop helping the devil not knowingly of course.

    • The Catholic church can claim continuity back to Christ, but that isn't true. It can claim the Magisterium is the only credible interpreter of the Word of God, but that isn't true. It can claim Sacred Scripture of the Bible is not enough for salvation, that Sacred Tradition and the Magisterium are also required – but that isn't true. It can claim that Mary was ever virginal all her life, that she never sinned, that she was resurrected body and soul to heaven, that she is a mediatrix to salvation between mankind and God – but that isn't true. It can claim that salvation can only be achieved through the sacraments – but that isn't true. It can claim that missing mass on a Sunday or holy day of obligation is a mortal sin punishable by eternal damnation if not confessed to a priest – but that isn't true. It can claim that not taking communion when capable at mass is a mortal sin punishable by eternal damnation if not confessed to a priest – but that isn't true. It can claim that the priest has powers beyond that of angels and can change the bread and wine into the actual body and blood of Christ – but that isn't true. There are many other traditions in Catholicism that are not true. By now you are asking what am I using as a source to declare these traditions as untruths? I am using the Bible, the only Word of God. Catholicism acknowledges that the Bible is the Word of God. It also says that sacred Tradition (untruths mentioned above) is the Word of God. The problem here is that the Biblical Word of God and the Tradition Word of God contradict each other. How can one Word of God contradict another Word of God? Friends, the only two concepts that should guide your thinking are: 1. The Bible is the only Word of God; and 2. Jesus is the only savior.

    • Reading all the comments so far, where does it say that Jesus the son of God was a Catholic, Protestant. Hindu etc. No he wasn't infact he was a Jew!! Doen't matter what church you belong to as long as believe in God, & the works of his his only son Jesus did on earth.

    • Tasteandsee

      Perhaps you can look forward to meeting Jesus in heaven and praising God with all the heavenly host.

  17. Everybody can have their own opinion. We just have to love them for who they are and what they do and accept them for what they believe.

  18. Love the Lord your God ❤️ with all your heart and all else will be added unto you. The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth. Do not try and complicate the Gospel. God Bless You

  19. Dear brothers in Christ, Please explain Colossians 1:24 where Paul says ”… in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church…”

    Doesn't this contradict the “finished work” and “faith alone” concept?

    • Benedict, After reading the whole passage:

      “Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness— the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord's people. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

      He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.” (Colossians 1:24-29)

      It seems like Paul is saying that he is rejoicing in his suffering because he believes that through his suffering he is doing what God commanded us, too take up his cross and follow him, and various other passages that call us to work for the Church and also saying that Christianity will not be easy. Paul is feeling like his suffering is christ-like and that he is serving that church, which God calls us to do.

      Paul does not say that if he didn't do this that he wouldn't be saved. He would still be saved if he did not do this. Because of his faith in Jesus and belief that Jesus is God and rose from the dead. Us doing works do not save us. Only Jesus can do that. Our works outwardly show that we believe in God and if we truly believe in him, we should want to do what he calls us to in this Bible.

      Paul is following Jesus through his works, but is not saved by his works.

      Please ask if anything does not make sense or if you have an opposing idea.

      Peace, Ardyn

  20. За да познаете вярата на ранните християни, моля, изучете ученията на ранните църковни отци.

    Ириней (130-202) беше ученик на Поликарп, който от своя страна беше ученик на апостол Йоан. Той е първият църковен отец, идентифицирал четирите канонични евангелия.

    Той преподава три стълба на православието: писанията, преданието, предадено от апостолите, и апостолското наследство.

    За ролята на Марис за спасението той заявява, „въпреки че Ева имаше Адам за съпруг, тя все още беше девствена ... Като не се подчини, Ева стана причина за смъртта за себе си и за целия човешки род. По същия начин Мария, макар да имаше съпруг, все още беше девствена и, като се подчиняваше, тя стана причина за спасението за себе си и за целия човешки род.

    Early christian beliefs are more similar to Catholic Christian beliefs than those of the protestants.

    It's interesting to note that early church fathers also had to deal with heretics. As promised by Jesus, the gates of hell will not prevail against the holy Catholic church.

    Хвалете Господа Исуса Христа

    • I would have to disagree with the statement that early Christian beliefs are more similar to catholic Christian beliefs than those of the protestants.

      In the first place most Roman Catholics don't regard scripture as they should (final authority) and only read verses that are approved by their priests. I have been friends and family of Catholics for most of my life. The majority of them really don't read the scriptures but would rather believe they are doing enough good works that they won't have to suffer very long in a place called Purgatory which by the way isn't a place at all. Who were Jesus' “brothers” (John 7:3)? The sons Mary had with Joseph after she had given birth to Jesus, “her firstborn son.” (Matthew 1:25)

      What were the names of Jesus' brothers? “James, Joses, Simon, and Judas” (Matthew 13:55).

      Did they believe in Jesus? Acts 1:14 says that Jesus' disciples “all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.” So Jesus' brothers eventually became believers and one of them, James, even became a Christian leader. But that's after Jesus' resurrection. Here, they “did not believe in Him” (John 7:5), considered Him to be an embarrassment to the family and are taunting Him to “Depart from here and go into Judea” (John 7:3) and “show Yourself to the world.” (John 7:4) Here these verses show plainly Mary had other children.

  21. With respect to the article, “Difference Between Catholic and Baptist,” the Catholic Church has never taught, nor will it ever teach salvation by works. It teaches salvation through the shed blood of Christ, and through this alone. I was raised Catholic and at no time did any priest, bishop, nun or any other religious person in the church ever teach salvation by works. It was taught salvation is through Jesus Christ alone.

  22. Chris The Catholic Church has never taught nor will it ever teach salvation by works. Salvation is only through the shed blood of Christ on the cross.

  23. i believe in god but, i also believe most of this article was an opinion for example

    It is undoubtedly the largest religious group ever formed since the time that Jesus 'walked' the planet.

    “undoubtedly” where is the evidence to support that? I really think most people believe in certain things and not everything, most of this article needs a fact check.

    • Thank you to many. I choose to be Christian. I do have hope and faith in God Jesus The holy ghost. I have faith in a creator or God . are they the same ? I was raised the roman catholic way as where my parents and theirs before. I have choosen to be a Christian. I have read about many religions. Thua coming to my beliefs I try my best not to judge but it does happen. Heck even Tupac Shakur a famous rapper murdered in the 90s? Has a song ” Only God Can judge Me” Many here will see this as blasphemy thus causing more argument hate racism etc. What is the percentage of wars created by religion ?

      Its like my Dad will beat up your Dad or My dick is bigger than yours. Thus woman in business say ” Ive got a bigger dick than you ” to ahow they have more power or something ……. But it is very difficult to have faith alone . Without real proof its hard. That is why many leave a religion and most kids find it humorous.

      So uh this dude ah parted a sea ? He built a massive ark and animals walked to by two onto it ? Umm how many animals were in the world at that time ? He had 40K of people and fed with a fish … Was it a megalodon? Kids see things that way as do i .. As most know if i tell someone something that once it gets to even a 5th person the message has changed. So with the Bible being written 100 YEARS after Christ died the stories had to have changed ? Most couldnt read or write but 100 Years after Jesus died the Bible as we know it was written. For 100 YEARS it was spoken to people so thata a long time back then never mind now. The Catholic Church still cut off the testicles of choir boys so they would /could sing higher until the middle NINETEEN FIFTIES ??? They also take every priest who rapes /molests others usually kids to the Vatican to avoid prosecution and perhaps a well needed beating. Baptists have 15 seperate inner religions( sorry cant think of the proper term) each is independant and worships as they see. So Baptists are ? What religion ? I believe that you van choose what parts of the bible you can “Radically Accept” and believe in or have faith in a religion and bible. Jesus did not intend for church's , it was the belief and message to be spread . It was some genius who figured out lets get believers to come then will will ask for a % of income. Thats a sticky one for me. I also believe in Mother Mary and yes pray as taught. But mostly try to be non judgemental , kind have empathy and TRY to live my life without SIN(impossible ) we wer From 10% to 50% … The 50 yes is the Ronny L Hubbard belief system developed by himself. Can i make my own religion ? Baptist beliefs and religious doctrine were formed in the middle 1500's.

      Some Baptists i know are super racists also greek orthodox catholic etc. Jesus died for our sins. To be allowed to sin ? As we are made in Gods Image he is a sinner ? Or is he above that ? Why will the “New Jerusalem where its getting built or is already so extravagent with gold so clear to see through ? Marble to tall and thick? Yet on earth now we are supposed to live without materialistic possessions? But God needs this crib of wealth ?

      Хммм. Sorry to be long. I didnt realize how much more i'd like to say / ask .

      Food for thought. Why do many say pre Jesus when people knew what ? But they are mocked for believing in the gods like Zeus etc. Or in sun god or rain god . is that more of a creator or God the eternal ?

      Also what of ancient aliens ? Who were before the flood .. Most religions mention a catastrophic flood . Its fact they existed ? The pyramids across the world can be connected by a straight line . Its said pre flood the world had power/electricity now believed to have been the power source was yes the Pyramids. They were different obviously than what we see today. With a massive gold cap long looted and a outer reflective coating . With rivers flowing beneath to provide energy to power the pyramid to create electricity. Thwy have found in ancient pyramids now dated to 20,000 years ago……….. I ave far too many questions so hopefully one day i will be allowed into the kingdom of God (creator) to ask some questions . After hopefully being answered i may stay or leave . If you cant leave then “the lake of fire” Only God can throw me . Faith i have but questions too. As all im sure do. God bless all of you for believing so strongly in “your religion “…..please remember it isnt “yours”

  24. Why is drinking wine a sin? If I'm correct Jesus turned water into wine. Plus the last supper they drank wine. Can someone tell me where in the Bible says drinking wine is a sin. Thanks, Christine

  25. Do Baptists believe that after Baptism you are cleansed of sins and future sins, solely because of Baptism? You are to be welcomed to Heaven due to your Baptism ? This is an honest question after reading many comments above. I have been raised Roman Catholic, my husband Baptist (although he hasn't been overly active in the Baptist church since we attend Catholic). While we both agree faith in God and Christianity is most important, we are weighing decisions for our children. I appreciate any feedback and guidance (without criticism please).

    • Baptism is an outword declaration of someone's faith. Basically telling the world “I choose Jesus!” And giving a person the opportunity to share their testimony of what God has done in their life. It has nothing to do with the forgiveness of sins. Jesus did that through his death and resurrection.

    • No they do not believe your question. Best friend growing up- catholic- me baptist (camps,schools- very active in youth groups & Sunday school).

      For your children, obviously totally your choice but I really appreciate non-denominational churches leaning towards baptist – nondenominatial lean towards the New Testament while still taking valuable lessons & knowledge from the Old Testament

    • Baptist do NOT believe that baptism saves them from anything. Baptism is a representation of our belief in Jesus as our savior and Lord. It is represented by going under water, representing Jesus' death & burial and then raising from the water represents Jesus' resurrection. Baptism in the Baptist faith is a public acknowledgement of our faith. We do not believe it saves us in any way, shape, or form. Baptist know that although we are believers in Christ, we are still sinners. We do not believe that our sinning makes us lose our salvation; however, we do not have an open book to sin all we desire. We are called to confess and repent and ask for God's forgiveness of our sins, praying to God in the name of our interceder, Jesus Christ. We believe that if we repent (turn away from) our sins, God will forgive us.

    • Hi, you sound logical. Being logical then brings faith as a belief in God reqires faith as.their is no factual evidence.Let them learb where yoy choose.As once like yourselvez become a certain age your children will choose. If a person doesnt choose of their own free will then the brain washing from whatevever interpretation one gets from the book of stories has succedded. I was raised Roman Catholic but i choose to be Christian.I studied world religions and had great interest in learning about all relugions.As if their is but one God yet under different religions i'd like to think.i wouldnt want someone to folloe a.religion that they truly believe in abd then that religion is “wrong” I hope their is no bad religion as.people truly want a saviour. Im not too big on the God thing this supreme being then i think sci fi like. I choose to believe in God . A God that i cannot fully understand the reasons for what he does as i am only human.If we put all the things we see wrong and think why doesnt God stop this needless suffering then i stray away as i think what God would allow this. So choosing i dont understand the reasonongs of a God can be the only way for me to see him condone this. As thats how i feel.Everyone feels differently as by the many comments.Under the majority you can feel the hate.Look at history how many wars have been caused and many still rage on because of a difference in someones belief in God. A different religion “thats wrong” how can any belief in God be wrong . Its the interpretation of a book of stories that we see the divides and hate. Id luke to think that all religions are somewhat correct( their books) but we all belueve in One God crazy as that seems. But thats my choice.Trying to choose one religion to me cant work. Sorry as we are all passionate and firmly believe we want “our side” or “our book” to be right. I believe let your childreb learn about God in whatever religion you choose . Once they can understand let them know you wanted them to have a beluef and understanding of God and religion but it is their choice as it has always been ti decide if in fact they are “religious with a belief in God or no its too far fetched and show me the factual evidence of an existence of God Satan Jesus Mary etc ad they may have difficulty with just faith. Късмет. Gid bless you. Your hearts are in the right place.

    • Hi.I truly enjoyed your comment. I tried to understand any logic for your words. Do you want to harm yge person ? Tell tgem your “right way” “your God” “your religion” all “yours” “your OPINION” of a non factual entity that we must believe in through faith as no proof exists . Im sure you mean well deep down yet i can feel the hate that fuels ya. Интересно.

  27. Doggone this is the worst 'difference between baptist & catholic' I have ever read or anything similar. There is 0% chance that someone with knowledge & understanding of both religions wrote this…..‍♂️

  28. Thank you kindly send me your phone number update and you

  29. As far as I see it. The meanest people I've ever met are those claiming to be church going God fearing Holly rollers. Corrupt. Law breaking. Tax evading and simply put. Mean.. and only pray for the money they have. And kick those they believe to be bellow them due to lack of money.. Your churches are both fake. If not then you'd all see that faith n belief are all basically the same..

  30. Certainly an interesting comment section. Can we please be civil, and not argue about if one religion is better than another?

  31. Hi, Why won't you post my honest comment about severe abuse in the Catholic Church against my sibling? Unbelievable!
