Differences in Worship and Devotions
In this instalment of comparative studies between Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant Christians, Deacon Sherman Kuek explains how the different major groups of Christians have different ways of worshipping God. While the historical groups of Christians tend to be sacramental in their expression and theological beliefs, the Reformation-based communities are increasingly distant from traditional ways of worship. There are also differences in prevalent practices such as prayer to the saints and prayers for the dead. These differences stem from radically different understandings of the Church.
