But you can see churchs in any city in here. Special for Bali, it is the Hindu island predominantly for centuries, since before the arrival of European in.

@nawala123 not yet biggest in the world but it will be soon when people will realise the value of islam. If Allah SubhanAllah ta'ala allow someone for islam only he/she can understand islam we people just can invite but we can't make them understand the value of it until Allah accept him/her.

@MALUSE Catholic and Christian were considered differently not by Indonesian govt,but by the Dutch/Netherland Indies. The current govt just inherit its clasification from the Dutch

@nawala123 If the Dutch made this distinction, then they didn't understand a thing about religion. I can't imagine this.

All Catholics are Christians but not all Christians are Catholics, they share some beliefs but not all. The Pope is the head of the Catholic Church but doesn't have anything to do with any other form of Christianity so they can be considered separate.

@nawala123 As @maluse correctly points out, Roman Catholicism is a denomination of the Christian Church. It’s quite offensive to Catholics to be considered separate from Christianity. A Christian denomination is one where the people believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that’s what Catholics believe along with Baptists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Methodists, Anglicans and all the rest. Christian denominations take different views on many issues but they are all Christian - followers of Jesus Christ.
