Catholicism Throughout the world there are many religions. Some that may even mean the same. My own religion is Methodist although I am affiliated with a Baptist church. The religion that I will bring before you will be Catholicism. Catholicism is one of the religions that is a little different but interesting from the research that I have performed. Catholic is defined as "related to the Roman Catholic church, its members, or its beliefs" (Bing, 2013) Catholicism emerged around the year 180 CE. The Catholic Church is lead by the Pope and based in the Vatican in Rome. Although the exact date of the beginning of Catholicism is not determined. This religion is the one that believes that Jesus Christ was born without "original sin." In other words saying that Jesus Christ was born perfect he had never done any harm. Catholics believe in what they call the seven sacraments which are; the sacrament of baptism, the sacrament of confirmation, the sacrament of holy communion, the sacrament of confession, the sacrament of marriage, the sacrament of holy orders and anointing the sick. Each of these has some type meaning. The first one being baptism which happens as an infant which removes the affects of original sin. Confirmation is receiving the age of reasoning, this happens in teens, they have the decision to continue on with his or her faith. Holy communion happens when you receive the Eucharist(the body and blood of Christ) you began this at the second grade level. Confessions are when the priest assist Christ with the forgiveness of sins. Holy orders is when the priest accepts his calling. Catholics believe that these sacraments were instituted by Jesus Christ during his life on earth. They also believe that the truth is found in the Bible, as interpreted by the Church, but also found in Church traditions. Catholics ten commandments are as follows; "I am the lord thy, God which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Honour thy father and thy mother. Thou shalt not kill.Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house("Roman Catholic Ten Commandments", 2007). During my interview held on October 30, 2013 @ 9:30 am at the Columbia County Annex building in the Tax Collectors office where I interviewed Mrs. Janey Griep which is my sister's co-worker. Earlier in this class we were required to come up with seven or more questions. I came up with questions that I thought could give me a lot of insight, knowing nothing about this religions. Then I asked my sister's co-worker if she would be honored if I interviewed her. So not only did I interview her but I printed the questions out the week I was going to interview her and she was able to give me or insight because she knew and had other sources of information that I could use. So we sat there that morning going over all of the questions that I had. Although she proceeded to tell me that my questions were deep and some of them she did not have an answer to. During the interview I learned that Catholics believe under this creed" We believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of Very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and was made man, and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, and the third day he rose again according to the…

ministers and the leadership of small local ecclesias (churches) is shared by senior members.
The Christadelphians do not have a central leadership or hierarchy. They are a lay community, so do not have priests; the only priest they recognise is Jesus Christ. Their organisational structure seeks to follow the way they believe the early Christians organised themselves. The guiding principles are a commitment to equality among believers and regarding 'leaders' as servants. Those taking leadership or…
