What divides Catholics and Protestants?
Typically, not a lot more than one or two ribbed Trojans and a couple squeezes of KY.

Like I have said probably 5 times on this thread,

You Protestants and Catholics fight like mother and daughter, Which is exactly the difference between Catholics and Protestants.

The Catholic Church is the Mother of Harlots,
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

And Protestants are one of her daughters.

This has to do with the Mark of the Beast, which the Mother of Harlots imposes upon her own people, but the Mother of Harlots daughters also impose the Mark of the Beast upon their people.

Which joins both the Mother of Harlots and her daughters together upon this one thing, The Mark of the Beast.

The Mother of Harlots and her daughters have no Dispute within themselves about the Mark of the Beast.
They all insist that this "mark of the beast" is in fact the mark of GOD, well except the Catholic Church which readily admits that they made Sunday the Sabbath in contradiction to GODs word as a Mark of the Catholic Churches power to show that they (the Catholic Church) has the Power to change something GOD made at the Creation.

In addition to (the Catholic Church) marking their territory with Sunday is the Sabbath,
The Catholic Church claims ALL "Christians" that keep Sunday as the Sabbath as (the Catholic Church) children.

What (the Catholic Church) says is They (the Catholic Church) made Sunday the Sabbath and the Bible says Friday Sunset to Saturday Sunset, and this is their Mark of Authority upon the Earth,

(THEY ACTUALLY SAY THESE WORDS. Mark, Power Authority.)

Anyone that Worships in a "christian" way and considers Sunday the "Lords Day" the "Sabbath", etc. is acknowledging the POWER of the Catholic Church by acknowledging the Mark of their Power (the Catholic Church) in the Creation of Sunday as the Sabbath.

So the Difference between Protestants and Catholics is one is the Mother of Harlots, the other is a daughter.

That is the DIFFERENCE Between Catholic And Protestant.

One is the Mother, The Catholics
The Other is a Offshoot/Daughter of the main Branch.

Think of ALL RELIGION on Earth as a GIANT TREE,
The Catholic Church has a VERY LARGE BRANCH upon this tree, the Protestants having Broken off of the Catholic Branch are a LIMB Upon the Catholic Branch. There are MANY Limbs upon the Catholic Branch but they are all connected to the Catholic Branch which itself is connected to the Paul Branch which is connected to the Trunk which is connected to the ROOTS of all religion upon the Earth.

The Protestants are a Branch upon the Catholic Branch.

Like I said think of ALL the RELIGIONS UPON THE EARTH as if they are contained in one tree, as the BIBLE instructs you to think.

The ROOTS of this tree, IS/ARE GOD, the branches, some produce fruit that is sweet to eat ,some produce no fruit at all.

This is why the Parable that GOD is like a tree, you can GRAFT IN Branches of WILD TREES that produce GOOD fruit, and you can cut of branches that do not produce good fruit.

Catholics are only the main branch of Paul,
A tree Requires MANY MAIN Branches,
12 seems to be the right number here,
12 MAIN BRANCHES of this Tree of Religions of the Earth.
Catholicism being but one Branch upon the branch of Paul, and Protestants being but one branch upon the branch of Catholicism.

12 Main branches, The ROOTS ARE GOD,

What would be the Trunk?

What could bring all those 12 different branches together in a common Purpose over the truth at the ROOT of all religions?

But remember Branches can be CUT OFF,
AND
Branches of WILD Trees can be Grafted In.

I find thinking of the religions of the World in the form of some GREAT TREE to be soothing to my soul.

Most of these FIGHTS in Religion are occurring within branches of branches upon the same Branch.

It is kind of Comical when you look at all of the Worlds Religions as a Great Tree, 2-3 Branches of the same Branch are fighting among themselves.

Like Protestants fighting with Catholics, Or Evangelicals fighting with Protestants and Catholics, or Southern Baptist fighting with Protestants, evangelicals and Catholics,

THEY ARE ALL ON THEY SAME BRANCH. They are just different Branches upon that bigger branch.

None of them are fighting with the TRUNK or the ROOTS, the are fighting about which branch is prettier when they are all on the same branch.

He who can see from Afar can see they are all upon the same Branch.

He who can see the TREE, sees the world Differently then he who can only see his fruit and compares his fruit with the fruit of the branch next to him.

The Lemon calling the Grapefruit Sour, BOTH are attached to the SAME BRANCH.

Their LIMBS are separate and Producing their own Fruit, BUT BOTH OF THEM are attached to the same Limb, which is attached to the same Limb, Which is Attached to the Same Limb, etc., Back to the TRUNK, Which has 11 other GREAT LIMBS coming forth from it.

No Protestant here(me). Never is the Mark cf Satan (BEAST) that I have heard except here, as the Mark of God been even suggested.
WHo here has claimed this to be so? Any that reiceve this Mark are doomed. As in NO Repentence.
One World Order People in the end will claim it to be, as they will Claim the Ant-Christ to be GOd..... Power and all that.
They will say he is the peace maker, 7 years of no war. But he will be the incarnate Devil with his right hand man (bishop, etc.)..this is my understanding. SOme one will attempt to assasinate this false one, and he will be given power to return to physical life, fooling many. Many will be (and are) decieved.

Where you come up with Paul is the main branch of Catholicism is the mind boggle as well as another issue.

You are not very UNDERSTANDING of the Scripture, YOU do not UNDERSTAND what this or that means in the Scripture.

You are better served by Living a GOOD LIFE, and raising Children that will live a GOOD life.

That is ALL YOU NEED, Live a GOOD Life, and raise Children that live a Good life, That is the GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT YOU CAN ACHIEVE YOUR CHILDREN were GOOD.

That is the GREATEST Achievement of Mankind, YOUR CHILDREN were GOOD.

Back to ME, Protestants are a branch of the Catholic Religion.

OH, the Catholic Church CLAIMS Sunday Worship as the MARK of their Authority upon the Earth.
The Catholic Church SAYS Friday Sunset to Saturday Sunset is the Sabbath but that they (the Catholic Church) changed what GOD said at the Creation and that this is Proof that they (the Catholic Church) is GOD upon the Earth.

They (the Catholic Church) call it the Mark of their Authority upon the Earth, for no being could CHANGE what GOD created at the Creation (the Sabbath) unless that being the POPE was GOD upon the Earth.

Seriously they call it the MARK of their authority. It goes WAY BACK.

The Sabbath, Easter, Christmas, the latter 2 are Catholic.
It seems such a Little thing, GOD give even SLAVES a day off, and oh Saturday Sunday What is the difference?

Pretty much everything you think is Christian can be traced in this GREAT TREE of the Religions of the Earth into the Catholic branch.

The religions of the Earth are a Great TREE,
Everything you call Christian are limbs of the Catholic branch.

But the TRUNK is JESUS, and the ROOTS GOD.

But all you call Christian are limbs far out upon the branch of the Catholics.

THE TREE GROWS FROM THE EARTH WITH 12 MAIN BRANCHES.

All you can see are the Lemons and Grapefruit upon two limbs upon on Branch, upon on Branch.

THE TREE, THAT IS GOD,
Has 12 MAIN BRANCHES.

You fight among yourselves, at the end of the branches, saying my fruit is better, never seeing the TREE to which you are connected.

Protestants are on the Branch of Catholics, a Limb that came out from the Catholics.

And the Catholics have a Whole bunch of other Limbs that have come out from them.

Every single one of them connected to the Trunk by the limb of Catholicism and Paul.

The TRUTH OF GOD is as a TREE, with many Branches.

You guys are like Lemons at the END of these Branches.
There is a lot of tree between when it breaks off from the trunk to form this branch and when we get to you and your sour lemon.

GOD is the ROOTS of the Tree.

I don't agree with your interpretations. I could say as well that you don't understand what you read. As far as your advice, don't think that is Scriptural either.
I am not contesting your statements about the Sabbath. Again, me thinks you need help deciphering.
Not all come from Catholic roots. The CHurch was here long before Catholicism picked up and twisted the Word.
WWhere do you put yourself in this maze? The only cult with the truth?

Yeah, lots of millionaires here. Every bend in the road or clump of sagebrush has one. I was working and in school at 16. On my own. Not sitting around the parents whining and avoiding the anger management classes. You are so weak you have to put your actions onto me?

You are young, lazy and ignorant. Besides being uneducated and basically a spolied brat.
You can't care for yourself in your twenties and want to roar on the web when not playing your X-box games. You are NO man and it does not look well for that happening.
You can't stand on your own and your own beliefs don't hold water. You did not even know your candidate Ron Paul. One trembles to think your generation is old enough to be taking over, but still under the wings of mommy and daddy providing for you and making your choices. A little male toad waiting for his fairy princess' kiss.

You add nothing here, no matter how many times you post the same squat. You don't even make sense. Pathetic waste of education dollars.
