    @Mitchell ... I would think that the record in 1Co 3 has applicable information which may answer some of your questions.

    Satan wants there to be different gospels.

    I have yet to see any denomination, or even those calling themselves non denominational preach all truth. Many preach against obeying Jesus to get saved and to stay saved.

    @Mitchell, here are questions you may want to consider too advance the conversation on the subject

    matter. A little more clarification will enhance one's explanation. CM


    (a) Why are there so many Christian denominations?

    • Are there?
    • How do you define "Christian"?
    • What is "denomination"?

    However, you define the questions above; possible answers could be:

    • Ignorance
    • Arrogance or
    • By Choice

    (b) Do Christian denominations result in dividing the Church?

    • How do you define "the Church"?
    • When it comes "the Church," are you referring to "the Invisible Church"?

    (c) Which Christian denominations are part of the Biblical or the True Church?

    • What do you consider the "True Church"?
    • When you speak of the "Biblical Church," are you referring to the ones that practice the teachings of the new testament?

    (d) Which so-called Christian denomination are not part of the Biblical or True Church?

    • See my questions to (a).

    (e) Is [it] good to have many Christian denominations? Why or why not?

    • See my questions to (a).

    (f) Is it harmful that there some many denominations? Why or why not?

    • See my questions to (a).


    (g) Is it neutral or meaningless that are so many denominations?

    • See my questions to (a).

    Is a religion the same as a denomination? I may not be able to get back to you as quickly as before, but we can continue the conversation. CM
