Comparing different religions & faith groups

Sponsored link.

Overview:

Elsewhere in this web site, we describe the beliefs, practices, history, etc. of dozens of different religions separately.

This section compares and contrasts the beliefs and practices of:

bullet Pairs or groups of religions, (e.g. Christianity and Islam), and
bullet Different wings within a single religion (e.g. Roman Catholicism and conservative Protestantism).

There are many conflicting definitions of the term "Christian" in use today. Throughout this web site, we define a "Christian" to be an individual or group who sincerely, prayerfully, and thoughtfully considers themselves to be Christian. Others define "Christian" much more narrowly.
