+ Study. Catholics, Orthodox and what the Bible says. By Fabian Massa.


Comparative table of different themes and approaches between Catholics and Orthodox. But the Bible says about it?


Columns 1 (Catholic) and 2 (Orthodox) came out published in the newspaper La Nacion, the texts of these columns are Ruben Guillemi and Designs: Nicolás Rivera http://www.lanacion.com.ar/1870271-conoce-las -differences-between-Catholics-and-Orthodox.
The third column composed it to show what the Bible says about it, which for Christians is the only thing that has value: The Word of God



CATHOLICS

ORTHODOX

THE BIBLE SAYS


GOD
triune God that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son.


VIRGIN MARY
It was conceived without original sin, "redeemer" with Christ and was raised bodily into heaven after his "dormancy".







PURGATORY
They believe in the existence of Purgatory, where souls that for their sins need purification before entering heaven go.


ORIGINAL SIN
They believe that the sin of Adam and Eve all human beings come into the world with original sin.




IMAGES
Images in their temples and statues are allowed.












CRUCIFIX
It has only a horizontal axis and a longer vertical, recalling how Jesus died.





CELIBACY
Celibacy is mandatory for all clergy.




HIERARCHY
The highest authority is the Pope of Rome, who is "infallible" in matters of doctrine.




LITURGY
In recent decades there has been a simplification of the liturgy. Masses rarely last more than an hour.

Texts: Ruben Guillemi - Design: Nicolás Rivera



GOD
triune God that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father only.



VIRGIN MARY
They do not believe that the Virgin has had privileges in its conception nor was raised bodily into heaven after his death.







PURGATORY
They deny the existence of Purgatory. Biblical considered insufficient evidence used by Catholics.


ORIGINAL SIN
They do not believe in original sin. Although the man has an evil inclination does not inherit the sins committed by Adam and Eve.



IMAGES
In their temples images, icons, but the statues they are allowed.


  









CRUCIFIX
It has two more than the Catholic cross beams. One horizontal upper recalls tablet "INRI", and a lower and inclined refers to the nails of the feet of Jesus.



CELIBACY
Celibacy is mandatory only for the high clergy as bishops, but not for the priests.




HIERARCHY
The highest authority is the Patriarchs (Russian, Greek, Jerusalem ...) and the Patriarch of Constantinople is a primus inter pares.


LITURGY
His offices are solemn, they can last hours or even overnight.






TEMPLE
In their temples there is usually no banks. There is a sector of sanctuary that only accesses the priest.







NUMBER OF FAITHFUL
Total 300 million. About 150 million belong to the Russian Orthodox Church.



Texts: Ruben Guillemi - Design: Nicolás Rivera



GOD
God John 14.16 and 17. The Father and the Son are one. The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father.

VIRGIN MARY
The Bible announced in prophecy (Is. 7:14) that a virgin would conceive Jesus. 1.27 Lucas was a virgin when she married Joseph, but he was already pregnant by the Holy Spirit. We are not told anything else in relation to this, neither admitted that he worships.


PURGATORY
Not on the Bible





ORIGINAL SIN
Original sin entered the world through Adam. 1 Corinthians 15.45




IMAGES
20: 4 Thou shalt not graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters under the earth.
20: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: I am the Lord thy God, a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, Exodus 20.4-5

CRUCIFIX
Jesus died on the cross. But three days was raised. So the crucifix represents empty





CELIBACY
It is against the Word. Paul's prophecy clearly says that in recent times forbid marriage (refers to the faithful) 1 Timothy 4.3

HIERARCHY
Everyone must submit to Christ, He is the only "Head". There are assemblies of various types and many divisions (denominations)



LITURGY
In the Pauline churches, the weight of the liturgy was on teaching, preaching and prophecy. psalms and hymns were also sung. Ephesians 5:19; 1 Corinthians 14.39-40.


TEMPLE
In New Testament times, the first services were held in the homes of believers. During the persecutions, hidden anywhere. Only after the "conversion" of Constantine, they began to build temples. Here the decline of the Church begins.



NUMBER OF FAITHFUL
Many call themselves Christians, but few are truly Born Again. Only God knows the actual number.
