I have been thinking a lot lately about the differences between Catholics and Christians. Some say the two are similar in many ways, some disagree. Depending on what individuals have been taught on either side, both labels can produce some misunderstanding and prejudice. I found this chart that summarizes well most of what I have found in comparing the two. It is interesting to see the differences and similarities and to think about why we have been taught that there is such a great difference in what we believe. When it comes down to it, it seems that we both believe that Christ die on the cross for our sins, defeated death and rose again. The very basics of the gospel and what I base my faith on...all the rest, just gravy or salvitic issues? Let me know what you think on this.
