a hypocritical religion that thinks they are the only christians and that every1 is going to hell but themwho tries to make catholics (the ORIGINAL CHRISTIANS) look bad just so every1 can join their church. also, the back of the bible states that ne1 who takes or adds to the bible will suffer the plagues mentioned in the bible" and u kno wat? protestants changed the bible! also rude bitches who say Mary is a prostitute and changed the original bible to say that she had many kids. ya my ass. thats changing the bible for sure and i bet Jesus really appreciates ppl insulting his mom.
protestant: we are the only christians and the world revolves around us. although we are god damn hypocrites who changed the bible many times under the following the example of Martin Luther who actually forced the catholic church to change the bible....jeez

Contrary to popular belief, Protestants are not all stuck up, judgmental hypocrites. Everyone who professes to follow a "religion" is a hypocrite because it is quite obvious that no human being can possibly adhere to the strict standards of any religion. However, Christians in general have earned a bad reputation for themselves by falsely declaring their love for Jesus/God and then blatantly contradicting that statement with their actions. This does not mean that there are not Protestants with sincere motives and a true love for Jesus. It is pure ignorance to discredit an entire "religion" just because of a few bad experiences.

Christians (at least Protestants) are not part of a "religion". This is because "religion" implies that you must meet a standard of good behavior to attain salvation and eternal life. We are saved because of God's grace, Jesus' sacrifice, and our faith, not because of our adherence to a set of laws. Judaism, Islam, and Mormanism are all religions, because they require the obeyance of their own particular laws. Sometimes Catholicism can be put under the category of a religion because some of them follow rituals and do things (i.e. confessional, pentenance, praying to Mary) to attain salvation.

Whoever posted that the Protestant faith was established by Henry VIII, this is a false statement. The Protestant faith was created by Martin Luther when he broke away from the Catholic church because he believe that you do not need to go through a priest to get to God. Henry VIII established the Episcopalian church on account of his selfish ambition.

Not all Protestants should be thought of as judgmental hypocrites. Think before you make sweeping generalizations. And to the person who posted that there is absolutely no evidence for the content of the Bible, this is an incredibly false statement, but that's another topic.
I am a Protestant, and I believe that Jesus is the son of God, that he died to take the penalty for the sins of the people of the world, and that you can get eternal life by trusting him with your life.

One who protests (pro-test-ant), hence once used often to describe those who objected to abuse of authority by the Church. As religious "Protestant" sects no longer protest as much, the alternate pronunciation has become common.
Being a gentle soul opposed to violence, she became a war protestant.

a Christian religion.

Many people think that protestants are horrible people but as one myself (which i was born into) i no that they are not bad people.

The Roman Catholic & Protestant faith are practically the same thing except protestants don't believe that The Virgin Mary is more important than our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Protestant faith started because Martin Luther wasn't happy that Roman Catholics were paying the pope to forgive their sins. I strongly agree with this as the only way for you sins to be forgiven is by a prayer to our Lord.

Also, i come from Northern Ireland were religion is a big issue with many people who funnily enough aren't actually Christians but just like to slag others for not having the same belief. Stupid eh?

So please don't write cruel and horrible things because of the slight difference in religion. Both Prostestants and Roman Catholics believe in God, Christ and the Holy Bible. What more can i say?
There is one Lord for both Protestants and Roman Catholics.

a form of christianity. split from roman catholic church after people realized that the pope was NOT NEEDED and not even mentioned in the Bible, and that they didnt need to be paganistic by worshiping statues and holy places and rituals and junt.
martin luther accidently got a revolution going on and some german princes,sweden,england,and even catholic france proceeded to kick the shit out of the catholic armies.
(SPANISH ARMADA PWNED BY STORM)

protestants choose to bielieve (or should) that we all have the right to talk to God one on one and not have to tell some old guy our sins.
unlike catholics and other paganistic religions, rosary beads,worship to statues and holy places are not needed to glorify God.
most catholics dont realize that most of thier religion's "tradition" is from their pre christian ancestor's pagan tendencys.

Glorify God the way you feel is best.
Pope: Peasants must pay for the great cathedral in rome, for the saints wish it to be.
Enlightened Person: Ah,Pope, you are a wise man and strong in your faith of Christ, but your the leader of a large and twisted cult, and i shall now proceed to kick your ass.

protestants defeated rome in the reformation.
that might just mean...maybe...God was on thier side?
Derp?
