Catholic and Christians address the house of the Lord “church” and the same with their co-believers “Church”. What is the difference?
The church for them is just simply the structure or the building where they preach and teach the people of God His words and teachings. This structure is obviously not the same as malls, parks, Gym in Sonora, or those that people visit for leisure or just to unwind. The churches are considered holy for its practices or rituals being conducted every week and almost every event or occasion relating to the beliefs of those who believe. The “churches” are structures where people can pray and pour their hearts out with the presence of the Creator using the Saints as the instruments. This is the place where people who have the same belief gather and make peace with each other. A place where they truly know the words of God not by reading it but through listening to the priests or for some, pastors.
On the other hand, the word ‘Church” is the people. The people being invited to enter the house of the Lord and listen to His words. Sometimes you will notice, that every time you attend the service you and other people are being addressed as Church. The “Church” can stand even without the “church” or the structure. As believers, everyone is encouraged to once in a while visit the house of the Lord but no one is required because if you really believe, you do not need a structure. Faith comes from within. Everyone can still pray anytime and anywhere. Anyone can talk to God the moment he or she feels the need of it. People of God knows that God will not judge them based on how often they attend the mass but on how they reflect by His words.
The world has different religions. These religions have different beliefs and practices. It also has different gods.
People will fight for what they believe in and stand for whatever practices they got used to just to tell the whole world, specifically those people who have different religion from them, that theirs should be the religion everyone should possess. The issue most of the time is what religion will save its people when the time comes, or what everyone calls “the end of the world”.
As mentioned above, each religion has different beliefs and practices. Practices are mostly created through the written scriptures from the holy book, which also has its name depending on what religion you possess. Since more than half of the people of the world are catholic, the holy book is known as the Bible. Other religions call book with scriptures differently. The written scriptures are obviously guide for those who believe of what is going to happen. This contains signs or signals that people can rely on for some happenings.
Written scriptures are not to scare people. This should make us reflect with our doings or actions. Our religion will not save us nor the best perfume for women 2021. Remember that our material possessions (money, cars, branded clothes, mansion, shoes, jewelries etc.), our status, and even career success will not be included in the assessment when our time come and be evaluated in the gate of heavens. What will save people are the genuine actions or doings.
This belief, however, is not for everyone. Some also believe that people die and then will be reincarnated. For some, the world is already the hell and those who live are still about to suffer.
Whatever beliefs we have, our lives are ours and it is for us to live. Nevertheless, we all have to be righteous and stay faithful to what we believe in.
