How are Judaism Catholicism and Christianity different?
AnswerCatholicism and Christianity should be the same.
Judaism was the forerunner of Christianity. The divergence came with the coming of the promised Messiah or redeemer in the person of Jesus Christ who said "Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets. I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them" The Pascal lamb now became the Lamb of God and from the time the New Covenant came into effect at the Last Supper there are no more intermediaries like Moses and the prophets and God again deals directly with each one of us because the sin of Adam no longer applies.
The New Covenant:"Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, though I was their husband, says the Lord. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each man teach his neighbour and each his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more."(Jeremiah Ch 31) .
i don't believe catholism is part of the true church ! you may not agree,but they believe in work salvation,while christians believe in grace alone(their are other doctrinal errors as well!).i did not post the first answer,by the way . i don't mean to be offensive if you are a catholic,but i believe God is telling me to speak the truth.
The majority of the core tenets found in Christianity/Catholicism completely go against the teachings of Judaism.
Examples of differences are that Judaism doesn't accept:
- The Christian concept of salvation and grace
- The concept of original sin
- The concept of damnation
- The concept of heaven and hell
- The existence of the devil
- The Christian concept of of messiah
- The concept of the trinity
- Praying through intermediaries
- The concept of a literal child of God
- The idea that one man can atone for the sins of another
These are just some examples, there are far more differences between Judaism and Christianity.
