I believe that a lot of the differences between the different branches of Christianity are man-made, and cosmetic. I do not believe it makes any difference if you attend an Orthodox, Protestant or Catholic Church. What is important is that you believe that God entered His own creation and died on the cross for the forgiveness of sins.

But please, don't take my word for it. Read the Bible for yourself, and decide for yourself.

I agree with thunder_runner. If we have been saved by Jesus then we are all sisters and brothers in Christ. We shouldn't allow titles like "Protestant" or "Orthodox" to keep us from remembering that we are all children of God and he sees us all the same way!

Paraphrased from "The Purpose-Driven Life", Chapter 3 (as well as I can remember it):
When we die, God isn't going to ask us about our doctrinal positions, church membership, etc. We will have to answer to only two questions:
1) What did you do re: my Son, Jesus?--this will determine where we spend eternity
2) What did you do with the talents, gifts, etc. I gave you?--this will determine what we do throughout eternity

Belief in God + Belief in Jesus as His Son and your Savior = Christian

Mormon here. And I agree 100%. It's all about Jesus. My sheep recognize my voice, so if you hook up with Jesus, he'll hook you up with the small stuff...

It's not the different titles that separate christians, it's their practices. Not every denomination of Christianity 'goes by the book'. In other words goes strickly by the bible.

Can you name a denomination that considers themselves Christian that doesn't believe that they're going strictly by the Bible?

Jesus did not say he was "God." He said "God" (the Father within) did the work (healed the sick, raised the dead, etc.) during his short life on earth. Jesus was the man, who at times spoke as man. Other times, God spoke through him. Just as God can speak and live through any one, or all, of us, if we but do a little work, some study, become spiritually independent and mature.

What a gross error that has caused so much sorrow on this planet for so long, the idea anyone must access God through Jesus.

Here in the US we have the kind of Christians who believe in the sanctity of life and are willing to send death threats to a judge they feel rules against it.

The kind of Christians who believe that fetus' are precious but children killed in bombings are collateral damage.

We have Christian politicians who get up in the middle of the night to sign legislation giving the government power to overturn 15 previous rulings by several courts to save a brain dead girl, but pull the plug on their own father after 27 days, and pass laws allowing young children to be taken off life support based on their ability to pay against the wishes of their parents.

We have the kind of Christians who believe life is precious unless they are executing retarded people.

We are a strange society.

In all fairness we also have some genuine Christians here who make a real and successful effort to practice their faith. Why in 55 years I've met at least a half dozen.

Um, Catholics say they're christian, they don't go by the book. Baptists say they're Christians and they definately don't go by the book.

Some denominations don't follow the true word of the bible, ex)churches that accept homosexuality as ok.

In Romans 1:20-32 talks about homosexuality as being wrong.

That's why I explicitly said name me a religion who doesn't think they're going by the book as much as you think you are when you disagree with them. You said being a Christian should be defined in some part by whether you follow the Bible strictly, and I said name someone who doesn't think they're doing as much as you think you're doing towards that goal. Catholics think they follow the Bible explicitly, and so do Baptists, and so do Mormons. So can you name either someone who can be excluded, based on your own definition? Or do you have some authority that we should accept your word over a billion Catholics who would exclude you for not going by the book?

Very Happy

And may I add Leviticus 18:22 to the homosexuality question. "Thou shalt not lie with a man as one would with a woman. Such is an abomination."
