Their organization and leadership styles are very different in many ways. Christianity is a monotheistic religion based around the teachings of Jesus. Islam however is more focused on the relationship formed with God. These religions do have some similarities but they are also vastly different for many reasons. Many of these points will be discussed further on along with some key points of each religion.Starting with Christianity, it should be noted that in some cases Jesus is believed to be a reincarnation of the sun. There are three main categories inside this religion. The categories consist of Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Protestantism. The catholic church is also known as the roman catholic church. Catholicism is based around the virgin mary since she is the one who brought Jesus into the world. The christian church hierarchy is led by the pope. The order of officials in the church begins with the pope and is followed by the cardinals, the patriarch, the major archbishops, the primates, the metropolitan bishop, the archbishops, and the diocesan bishops. This is the order of the church officials within roman catholicism.The pope is the worldwide leader of the catholic church and is also known as the papacy. He also acts as the head of the vatican city. It is most commonly believed that the pope is a descendant of Saint Peter. He resided in in an independent area of Rome known as the Vatican city.The Cardinals are in the second position, right behind the Pope. They belong to an organization known as the Office of the Cardinals. They are responsible for electing the new pope when the time comes, They play a vital role in the catholic religion.The third group in the list is the Patriarch. The Patriarch is the highest ranking bishop of the church. They are the head of certain autonomous churches, and some examples of these are the syrian catholic church, the armenian catholic church, and the greek catholic church. It can be noted that all of these are rather local to the governing Patriarch. They do however have authority over the lower classes of the hierarchy.Next are the archbishops, who mainly attend the annual meeting for the congregation for the oriental churches. After the archbishops, are the primates. The primates serve the first diocese in the country. Following the primates is the metropolitan bishop whose symbol is received directly from the pope. Lastly, are the diocesan bishops. These bishops are the lowest class whose main functions are to govern local regions within the church.The catholic church contains three levels of control. These levels are as follows: The world head, the diocese head, and the local church. Among the organization of the church are also the three main duties belonging to the pope. These duties consist of the following, he is the parish priest of St. John Lateran Basilica, the bishop of diocese where the basilica is known as the mother church, and he is also the ruler of all the bishops, otherwise known as the universal bishop of the catholic church.While there is an abundance of information on the Catholic church, a lot of the key point have been included in the aforementioned paragraphs. From the many different levels of power, to the different jobs present for every level. The catholic religions is a very unique and complex being that many people are apart of.Much to the contrary of roman catholicism, Islam does not have an ordained clergy or leader. Any muslim may lead a group in prayer so long as they are properly educated in the ways of the religion. They may also perform many rituals, a few of these are weddings, funerals, and births. Each of these has a special meaning in the Islamic religion and each has its own ceremony used to accompany the event. In the early years of Islam, people knows as imams, which means those who stand in front led mosques in prayer and other activities. In some larger mosques there is however a permanent imam is present that leads the congregation on a regular basis. There were other members who were the teachers of the religion. These people were known as ulama. The ulama were defined by their roles in society, some examples are their roles as scholars and teachers of the Quran, they also played a large role in theology and family laws present within the religion. They also had control of the schools and courts which granted them the ability to maintain a very large amount of control over the society in which they resided.In the last couple of centuries, the influence of ulama has declined in many parts of the world due to the fact that a majority of muslim countries are now apart of a oppressive dictatorship which only allows for a state appointed ulama. Another group present in islam was the sufis, who were the mystics. The mystics and the ulama at times enjoyed a mutual relationship with each other.The ulama participated in outer intelligence and knew many factual things about the muslim religion, the Sufis however were more internally focused, and maintained knowledge on how one sels was affected by the religion rather than how the religion was taught to affect someone and their lives.Moving on the organizational aspects of the muslim religion, it was very important to maintain what was considered a close relationship with God. This is considered to be the most important part of the islamic religion and all members took this extremely seriously throughout the duration of their lives. The relationship with God was believed to be reflected upon their relationships with each other. It is also stated that anyone can become a religious scholar and teach from the Quran if they possess the proper knowledge needed to do so. It is believed to be honorable to strive to study as much as possible about the religion. Scholars play a critical role in the muslim society. However they do not have the power to forgive sins and rectify one with god.
