Protestants:
Protestants belief in Jesus Christ is different from the ways the Christians praise and work ship god.
Extra mischief is not necessary in the protestant religion. In Christianity you have the priest who you confess your sins to, he is like a portal to gods forgiveness to get rid of your guilt and be cleansed once again. then there is the pope who has communication with god. but in the protestant religion the teachings for gods way were different. some people rebelled because they wanted to speak to god themselves and have a communication, no one wanted to have someone else communicate for them. A man named Martin Luther came up with the thought or belief that if you learned to read the bible and understand its teachings, then you already having a conversation with god.
