Do Methodists believe in the Virgin Mary?

Yes, methodists believe in the "Virgin Mary" as do all Christians in that she is mentioned in the gospels as the Mother of Jesus and wife of Joseph. Methodists accept all that is biblical about her, that she gave birth to Jesus, sang the Magnificat, was present at the wedding in Cana, was present at the crucifixion and so on.

Correction about the Catholics:

"Mother Of God"

Mary's most fundamental privilege is that of being the Mother of God. We do not mean she produced the divine nature, of course. But her Son is God, so she is the Mother of God.

Catholics don't worship Mary:

But it was misunderstand by many when a priest misinterpret what he said about the word worship.

In common speech "worship" means the adoration given to God alone. In this sense Catholics don't worship Mary or any of the other saints. In fact, the Catholic Church forbids any adoration to be given to any one or any thing but God. But in an older use of the term "worship" could cover not just the adoration of God but also the honor given to anyone deserving of honor. We pray with the saints and ask for their prayers.

What are the similarities and differences of the Catholic and Methodist churches?

Similarities of Catholic and Methodists
  • Catholics and Methodists believe in the holy Trinity (the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit).
  • Methodists and Catholics share the same Doctrine of Justification.
  • Both follow some form of Apostolic Succession.
  • Sign of the cross and votive candles, though more common in Catholicism are used in both.
  • Hagiography, or study of the Saints, is encouraged.
  • Both practice infant bapitsm.
  • Prayer beads (rosaries) can be used in both churches, but are more common in Catholicism.
  • Both use altars and have either an altar cross or crucifix.
  • Both recite the same Creeds (Nicene, Apostle's, etc).
  • Both consider themselves part of the Communion of Saints and the Holy Catholic Church. (In this case "Holy Catholic Church" means part of the church on a global scale.)
  • Both bow when aproaching the altar.
  • Ministers and Bishops must be ordained.
  • Catholics hold that the Roman Catholic Church's teachings and traditions are as important as the Scripture, whereas Methodists teach that truth comes from Scripture only.
  • Though the Methodist church does not deny the historical content of the Apocrypha, it does not consider it to be a Holy Book as the Catholic church does.
  • The most important piece of the Catholic Mass is receiving the body and blood of Jesus Christ through communion; the focus of a Methodist service is on the readings and liturgies. When Methodists receive communion, they believe that Jesus is spiritually, not physically, present. Catholics serve a closed table 9only Catholics may partake) while Methodists serve an open (anybody who feels inclined may partake).
  • Catholics Have 7 Sacraments but Methodists have only 2 ,the Eucharist and Holy Baptism.

How aids transfer?

AnswerAids is transfered when people have sex, using a condom greatly reduces the chances of getting aids. Animals cannot get aids and can't transfer it. Aids comes from blood, semen and other bodily fluids. You can't get aids from saliva, so kissing, hugging, handshakes, and just about everything else will not give you aids. If someone has aids, don't worry about it, as long as you don't have sex with them you'll be fine.


Aids can also be transfered by blood. If someone with aids has an open cut, you can only get it if you are to share blood or eat the blood by maybe accedetly mixing it with food but the aids virus can only live for five minutes outside of the body. If you give birth to a child while not having aids, and you some how you obtian it in your blood stream and breast feed the child, it will get aids even though it might have not had aids after birth.


How does a Catholic convert to Methodist?

Another answer from a Catholic member of our community:

Ah, don't take this the wrong way, but you can't. When you have been baptized as a Catholic you are bound to certain things for the rest of your life. Should you quit attending the Sacraments and beginning attending a Methodist Church, it is not called converting, it is called Apostasy and is one of the most serious sins imaginable. If you are thinking of this for some reason, please call your priest, schedule an appointment, and sit down and discuss your reasons for thinking you would like to do this.
