Question
Dear Daniel

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholicism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protestantism

What are the Similarities and Differences in Catholicism and Protestantism ?

Are there different churches for both ?. i.e. Catholics go for worship and praying the all mighty to a different church and Protestants go to a different church ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Catholicism locates authority in the Pope (magisterium) whereas Protestantism located authority in creeds and traditions of men. Churches of Christ locate authority in Christ alone as revealed in scripture. Only the Church of Christ teaches truth about how to become a Christian http://issuu.com/collegeofmentalhealth/docs/how_to_become_a_christian?mode=windo
