    The Case for Christianity 

    To “make a case” for something is to explain convincingly why it is true or to be believed. This may be done in any number of ways. It involves looking at the evidence in support of something, and considering its implications. This may also involve considering arguments opposed to it and analyzing what, if any, validity they may possess.

    The case for Christianity is strong and convincing. Studying the arguments in favor of Christianity with an open mind can be a faith-building and truly life-changing experience. Such an analysis provides hope and encouragement not only as to this earthly life, but into eternity.  Read >>

    “What is the Difference Between Catholics and Protestants?” is the title of an article on a popular Protestant website. You can probably imagine how the author answers the question. (I didn’t bother to read it. I have other priorities.) As a New Testament Christian who eschews sectarian divisions, how would you answer this question? Are there any real differences between the two groups? If so, what are the basic differences? Feel free to share your perspective in the comments area.

      There used to actually be some big differences, but not so much anymore. It seems like the whole denominational world is merging into one big conglomeration of believe what you want, worship how you want, live how you want and don’t say anyone else or anything is wrong. The major differences that are slipping away were that 1) The Catholics believed they were the only true church while protestant denominations accepted each other more or less. 2) Catholics had statues, prayed to Mary and saints, and the pope. More protestants are moving toward those things. 3) Catholics said the church overruled the Bible, protestants used to believe the Bible more not so much now. Of course there is the no birth control position of the Catholic leaders that is not followed by most of the members. The Catholics used to believe you had to be baptized (sprinkled) to go to heaven. But this most recent Pope has gone so far as to say even atheists can be saved. It really does seem like we are about to just have individual groups of Pentecostal, Calvinist, “Spirit led”, Catholic, interdenominationalists before long.

      The conclusion of the matter is_ Catholics are saved by the Church_ Protestants by grace.
