    Who cares. Christians are just as silly as atheists.

    It is the same god, there is only one.

    They don't. That's the problem. Protestants and Catholics both have a very different idea of Christ and of God than the Bible teaches. There is no Trinity. Jesus Christ constantly deferred to God.

    It depends on what you mean by "different."

    Protestants and Catholics all worship the God of Abraham. So do Orthodox Christians and Jews and Muslims.

    We do, however, have some different ideas ABOUT God, and about what he wants of us. But really, so do any two people in any of those groups. Even if they use the same words--perhaps a formal creed--to express their beliefs, the beliefs aren't exactly the same. Words aren't that precise.

    Protestants have been separate from the Roman Catholic Church, and developing our own expressions of our beliefs independently from them, for over four centuries now, since they threw us out.

    The God is the same; the concepts are different.

  • We all know that there is only one God, but in his Deity? So far, are we there?

    But the true Christian believers worship God, in spirit and truth, whoever does not use this shrewdness is in idolatry!

    John 4: 23-24.

    But the hour comes, indeed it has already come, that the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father seeks such worshippers. 24 God is Spirit; and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and truth.

    Tell us how the gods are different and we can answer.

    Because I do not believe that either the Pope or the "Virgin" Mary are God.

    Protestants & Catholics & Orthodox all worship the same God.

    But you know this.

    I was Protestant because that's what I was indoctrinated into believing as a child.

    They broke away when Martin Luther nailed his list of greivances on a Catholic Church door creating their own religion.
