The Christian Faith in Brazil

Although it appears to be an easy task being a Christian in Brazil – catholic or protestant – because of the vast number of Churches and reach of Christianity inside the Brazilian culture, as soon as one delves a little deeper into the faith the case ceases to be so simple. It ceases to be simple due to the fact of how the faith arrived in the country already bent by the Iberian tradition, and kept changing along the centuries that in the end became only a masquerade of false moralism. Outlining Brazilian faith, from a Christian perspective, is as disappointing as it is interesting, for we begin to see the same patterns repeating themselves throughout the world, giving us the feelings of both despair and understanding.
