gospel. What is the difference between the gospel Jesus said to follow and the one that obviously became the basis for "Christianity" under Justinian?
Galatians 1:6-7 is the passage to which you are referring. Paul was addressing converted Jews in Galatia who were tempted to forsake the gospel of salvation by grace and revert back to salvation by the Law of Moses. This message is applied today to those who are trying to obtain salvation by works (self-righteousness) rather than salvation through faith (God's righteousness). Gal 2:21 "I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly." Blessings.
Thank you for your answer Judah's Daughter. I'm not here much, but I had just wanted to know how Jesus ended up being responsible for so many churches with so many points of view, when he simply stated that he would build his church, not churches, that he asked his Father to keep his people in His name, the gospel of the kingdom of God to be the basic doctrine for dissemination, and God's government the basic structure of his church. Considering the miriad ways churchianity is governed according to human ideas and not God's, I only wondered if anyone out there really knows the answer to the difference between all these disagreeing churches and the one true church of God that must exist.

This list of beliefs I wrote about 5 years ago, came from an approximate 20-year study of the Statements of Beliefs by many different Christian denominations. These were the beliefs I found that were of most common agreement between them. That doesn't mean they represent ALL denominations but...

If a doctrine or belief that is taught by the Church today was unknown to the 1st century Apostolic Church, is it a valid doctrine? Is it inspired by God, or is it a false manmade doctrine?
