Corrections: the Orthodox Church doesn't have one Patriarch; we don't subscribe to the same view as the Catholics that one bishop should have jurisdiction over the whole Church; that was not how the early Church was. Also, we still do not acknowledge the authority of the Pope. The Orthodox Church can't be called Protestants as there was nothing to protest nor was the schism because of a protest. Protestants are called as such mainly because of what Luther did--that he nailed his protests at a church, thus those who broke off from the Catholic Church from his time on are called Protestants.


i dont know which is which, or who is it, but, protestantism was created by a king who defied the teachings of the catholic church about monogamy, and he want to have as many wife as he can, so he created his own religion.

Henry VIII didn't start Protestantism (he initially opposed Luther), so he broke away from the Catholic Church. He didn't start a new religion (at the time the Church of England was still very much Catholic sans the Pope; it was at the time of Elizabeth I that it became more Protestant).

here's fact the catholic church is as dumb as they can be.
despite the fact that time & again injuries, robbery, chaos,
traffic & sometimes death occur they still parade the Black Nazarene
in Quiapo. Everyone knew this for a fact, but the stupid church
will rely on goverment units & hospital to take care of it.
basta ang sa simbahan,"bahala kayo dyan kailangan namin ang
mga mananalig". kung batikusin at pakialaman nila ang gobierno,
ganun ganun na lang pero itong malinawa pa sa sikat ng araw na
sila lang ang may control, they don't f#&king do anything but
just let the chaos happen year after year.

i mean why let the procession continue when it's always in chaos.
can't devotees just prayer beside the black nazarene sa loob ng
simbahan? does the church really think the lord is happy with the
procession while injuries & death is the result?

malakiong kagaguhan ng simbahan katoliko ang kaguluhang ito.

Those who are sinners and apart from the church are normally devotees of this ritual. A lot are also desperate for solutions; like a cure or some miracle and they flock to the shrine for comfort and resolution. But to tell you the Truth, nobody is forcing or promoting the devotion. Perhaps the idea is to let the "faithful" decide.





Not everyone would have the same quality of faith. Some need to show it publicly. Some need to get hurt to feel pardon from sins. It is each one according to his faith.




But Jesus implies that the greater the faith, the less amount of proof or show needed, "More blessed are those who do not see but believe." The Faithful must be like a child who is obedient and easy to teach. Jesus shows us the way, and we need to follow his examples. Mind you, his examples are not totally the cross and passion. Rather Jesus taught his disciples love of God and neighbor that took him 3 years of Earth life to implant in their hearts. Caring for the sick, listening to those in need, teaching the ignorant, feeding the hungry and water for the thirsty, these are the examples all Christians ought to emulate. Well, literally being crucified and flogged until you bleed is not what Christianity is about compared to the virtues of Christ which is Love, Truth and Faithfulness (HOLINESS or SINLESSNESS) under extreme pressure.

we're all sinners and we all need repentance, do it sincerily


I keep hearing this from Catholic Church that we are born sinners at birth. In someways, on a personal opinion, I find it cruel since its like labeling us in the first place. Its like a label that if you want to be accepted and loved then you must be one of us. Most of the teachings both of Catholic and Non-Catholic Christians follows the same pattern.

I somehow get reminded on history how Christianity got spread here in the Phil. by ways of forcing the natives to worship the Church or be killed.

How can a religion be right of choice and free will, if you don't accept them either you are gonna be killed (like in the Spanish Times) or if you don't joined their religion you are gonna be punished in the after life. Where is the free will in that?

Just a personal view ...

@C_Kalbo: By Christian, what do you mean by it? We Catholics, as many dictionaries do, define Christian as following the teachings of Jesus Christ of Nazareth as put down in the Bible. The basics are laid out in what we call the Apostle's Creed. It espouses belief in God as the Father or Creator of all, as All Mighty (omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent); belief that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God and the Lord (Old Testament definition), that Jesus was made as Man by which his suffering, death, and resurrection will save the souls of Men, and of his return in the end-times to judge all Men according to their works; belief in a Holy Spirit that guides the present community of Christians that is the Church.

Christians agree on the nature of Jesus as both human and divine, and as divine, as a Person of God, Jesus is seen as one of the Holy Trinity.

These are the basics. The funny thing (Your Mileage May Vary) is the whole lot of differences in beliefs among Men who never even met Jesus in person yet believe they alone hold the truth of His teachings.

The doctrine of original sin is false: it slanders and libels the character of God, it shocks man's god-given consciousness of justice, and it flies in the face of the plainest teachings of God's holy Word. The doctrine of original sin is not a Bible doctrine. It is a grotesque myth that contradicts the Bible on almost every page. But because good Christians can quote texts from the Bible to "prove" the doctrine of original sin, they are convinced it is true.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned...Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Rom. 5:12, 18, 19

Catholics are the only real Christians. Those who claim to be "Christians" but are not Catholics are actually Protestants. They should be named after their founder like Calvinists, Lutherans, Sorianoyans, Villanuevans, etc
