The Catholic faith teaches that the priest consecrates the bread and wine into the ACTUAL body and blood of Jesus Christ. Catholics believe through the process of transubstantiation, Jesus Christ is LITERALLY present in the Eucharist, NOT a symbol. Protestants however, believe the bread and wine to be a symbol and not literally the body and blood of Christ.Having been brought up a catholic i was taught that's its a symbol by a priest who laughed at me as a child when i thought it was Jesus' real body. It seems he wasnt going by the catholic rules? Just thought id add this, anyway ive no interest in these religious stories anymore.

Actually some Protestants like Lutherans, believe in real presence of Jesus in the bread and wine. Reformed protestants deny that. Reformed protestants think they are just symbols.

Orthodox christians also believe that bread and wine becomes Jesus body and blood.

Jesus as a God has the power to transform bread and wine in his body and blood. He as a God also has the power to keep his body and blood in the form of bread and wine so that we are able to it them.

Well that would depend on who you ask. Some Protestants would consider themselves to be better than Catholics but other Protestants would not.

In other words, some Protestants believe that their doctrine is true but the Catholic Church's same doctrine on said topic is false incorrect in a not totally false way so in one sense, some Protestant churches do believe that they are better than Catholic churches but when it comes to individual Protestants versus individual Catholics, it varies from person to person.

What is the difference between the Roman Catholic and Protestant religions?

The principal differences are: 1.) Catholics recognize tradition as having equal importance as scripture. Paul points this out in his 2nd letter to Timothy. 2.) Protestants generally do not accept the True Presence in the Eucharist or, if they do, it is only a temporary thing. Our Lord disappears after communion. 3.) Protestants do not accept the leadership of the pope. 4.) Catholics recognize 7 sacraments (all biblical) while most Protestants recognize only one or two. 5.) Most Protestants do not recognize the Deuterocanonical books of the Bible that are accepted by Catholics. 6.) Most Protestants do not recognize the perpetual virginity of Mary. 7.) While most Protestants recognize the Communion of Saints, their view of it is considerably divergent from the Catholic view. 8.) Most Protestants believe man is saved by faith alone. Catholics believe we are justified by faith but saved by good works. 9.) Catholics believe our souls must undergo a final cleansing as punishment for sins forgiven in Purgatory. Protestants do not.


Is it not right for a non Catholic christian to take communion at catolic mass?

Eastern Orthodox Christians are permitted with special permission to receive the Eucharist from a Catholic Church on certain occasions and other non-Catholic Christians may be able to receive if they are in danger of death, express a belief in the Eucharist, and ask for it on their own initiative. The reason for this is that only the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church believe in the Eucharist in the proper sense, and furthermore, the Eucharist is a sacrament of unity within the Church, and it would be wrong for those who do not share fully in the unity of the Catholic Church to receive it.


Why were Protestants called protestants?
