I'm Catholic. I have my beliefs and what not, but I don't think I need a priest to be able to talk to God. So a lil Lutheran in there too I guess. I gave up all carbonated drinks for Lent, and it really really sucks.

Mine's not up there (I'm not surprised though). I'm Quaker but rarely attend worship nowadays. And for the love of god, don't confuse it with the Amish ok? I swear so many people think that Quakers are the ones that swore off technology and cars. It just kinda pisses me off.

What are the differences between Catholics, Protestants, Lutherans, Baptists, Presbyterians, etc? From the people I've met and know from each religion, it all sounds the same to me. I've been to Lutheran services, Methodist services, and Catholic services and they were the SAME basic format. If you believe in Christ and acknowledge him as your savior, then what's the big difference? It could probably be a whole thread unto itself; I'm just ignorant I guess. I consider myself non-denominational Christian.

My father in law is a Christian pastor, but that has nothing to do with anything with me religiously. I was baptized and communioned (is that a word?) as a Catholic.

Sometimes I believe in Christ without question and sometimes I wonder if EVERY word in the Bible is the truth. I don't think you have to go to church to be a good Christian. IMO, being a good Christian is shown by your actions, words, and intents. Church is just a way to congregate with your fellow believers. Again, right or wrong, it's all IMO.

Anyway, rambling aside, I only go during religious holidays. My wife is always looking for churches we can go to that we like, but haven't had much luck. Willow Creek is too huge and sorta has that disingenuous, pretentious 'where rich people go to be seen worshiping' vibe, Christ Community seems to be alright for Christmas services. I'm comfortable with my relationship with Christ.

Anyone see the South Park about the Passion tonight?

As catholics we believe in Jesus, saints, miracles, holy water, the bread and wine are the body and blood of christ.
Christians don't buy it.

I don't remember, sorry mom 13 years of school didnt help much

Aren't Catholics technically considered Christian though? Isn't any religion that worships Christ considered CHRISTian? Forgive my ignorance.

Yeah there are a lot of similarities, I mean, a priest from one denomination is just as likely to molest young boys as a priest from another domination.

You are correct. Christian covers Catholic, Orthodox, and all the various Protestant denominations, including Lutheran, Baptist, Pentecostal, Quaker, non-denominational, etc.

This song sums up some of the religions, from a band I listen too.

A Dog's Breakfast
words by Guy Ritter
music by Gary Lenaire

Scientology (Dianetics)
Listen to Ron Hubbard's son
"Dad was con-man number one
Through black magic dabbling
and drugs his books were born"*

Dianetics says I am
a reincarnated Thetan god
If I buy E-Meter
M.E.S.T. a-ok
L.R.H. says, "Jesus never
reached potential grade."*

The Watchtower (J.W.'s)

Jehovah's Witness made the claim
"The only prophet of today"
But every prophecy was fake
And so they upped the date.

As they read their bible wrong
John 1:1 "The Word was a god"
"Triune God is of Babylon
The Church is of the beast."

"144,001 and all that follow
Jonadabs that cannot go to Heaven"

I was fooled again
I had made up my mind
That truth comes in styles.

I was fooled again
Wastin' my time
With life changing lies.
(Lead - Mendez)

The New Age
My self I love so much
Because the New Age teaches me
"The source of good and secrets lie within"

If this present life ain't good
astral to the past one dude
"You can make adjustments
In your linear timezone."

"God is you and you are God
So whatever you decide is right..."
Right? (S. MacLaine)

Mormonism (Latter-Day Saints)

Joseph Smith a Mormon god
Murdered men, condemned of fraud
An angel gave him golden plates
Which no one ever saw.

Faith Movement

K.C. says that "Christ was lost
Sign of Satan on the cross
Bore the Devil's nature
and was born again in Hell"

If you've got a little bod
"You can all become a god"
Benny hinders true conversion
"Christ is not within"

"I have faith in my own faith
Cause I'm a little god" (Hagin)
(Lead - Lenaire)

I was fooled again
A message from God
That was only a fraud
Truth and joy was inside
But it's only in Christ
By a spiritual force
That had disguised its source
By the Lord's latest mail
But a novel from Hell.

*Paraphrase


my religion (Protastant) you accept Jesus in you heart and you are saved. I hope the words to the song don't offend anyone.

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy"- Benjamin Franklin

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!

Hey, I didn't call all the mistakes. I didn't want to call too much attention to your problem. And it is a problem. You know, there are kids in Africa who can't spell, and here you are misspelling for what? Sally Struthers ought to start an Adopt-a-Speller program.

Went to church when younger and don't bother with it now. I believe in god ,but don't have to go to church for what i know is in my heart.

Neva baptized either.


We all sin knowing it's wrong one way or another.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!
