Here's what I don't understand, I don't understand why Catholics and Protestants have to fight. Do we not all praise and worship the same God? Yes, but in different ways. It is not right for one to criticize the other, especially when you don't know what you are talking about. I have seen so many times people criticizing Catholics and Protestants, when they have no idea what they are saying.

For instance, so many times have I heard Catholics worship saints and Mary, not Jesus! However, what they do not know is that Catholics do in fact worship and praise God. We look up to Mary and the Saints and ask them to intercede for us. Mary is the Virgin mother of God, does she not deserve recognition? If you are not Catholic, fine, you don't have to look up to Mary or the Saints. you have your own way of worship. All I'm saying is that each denomination has their own way of worship. Is America not a free country? Does the first amendment not grant freedom of religion? So who are we to go around like it doesn't exist, to go around accusing others of practices they might consider blasphemy. It is not up to us to judge others. Do we not all believe the phrase, Only God can Judge Me, or What Would Jesus Do? Would Jesus go around acting like we do, on a daily basis? I would think not. Would God point all our faults, disowning us? No. Who we are is because of God.

God has a special plan for each and everyone of us. It is not up to us to change His plan. God knows everything, what has happened, what is happening, and what is going to happen. So just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride of life.
