Why is there so many different forms of Christian Religion?
When they all preach that they believe in only God, Holy Spirit, Son of Christ.
Because that is what religion does--it divides. It is the doctrine of man trying to explain God and man cannot be unified in belief or doctrine apart from God. It is the Holy Spirit that unites and it is a Church that Jesus will come back for, not a religion.
Because the concept of a god is manmade and since there is no evidence or proof of any god, people are free to make up any type of god that they want, and of course, since there are so many different people, there are many different gods.
I've heard it's because of disagreements which create division, which is most likely because of misinterpretations and the inability to apply doctrines to personal lives. When a religion is advocated to change a person - everyone else accept the head honcho who is doing the preaching - it never works. Unless the head person applies the principles of virtue, religion will never ever work. And history has proven this. As has been said, spirit unites, religion divides.
It is based on different ways of interpretation of the bible even though we all believe in one God.
To me, it does not really matter as my belief of one God is strong and all religions are teaching us to be good and caring to one another.
You come the closest to what I believe. I am a Catholic, I was a Baptist. When I converted, the Catholic church accepted by Baptist baptism.There is a thread that unites all Christian churches-the belief that Jesus died on the cross for our salvation
For the same reason there are so many different fast food restaurant chains. They are all business competitors.
Your question would be empty without the word christian in it. This is the answer; and that is that all Christianity is meaningful and Christ centered. Christianity is the worship of Jesus Christ and the Father, or creator, as well as the holy spirit. Certain guides, or precepts are in place in Christianity and there are many churches that may differ in worship service arrangements and emphasis, yet all are Christ centered and believe that He is the Son who was crucified, died on the cross, and buried, and arose again in the spirit to be with his disciples and arise to be with the Creator in Heaven.This is called the Holy Trinity, or the Father, Son , and Holy Spirit that is worshiped. Catholic, Mormon, and many divisions of protestant faiths are all in unison when the real meaning and faith of a Christ centered religion is concerned.
Because there are too many chiefs and they all want their own little bit of power and conttrol, so they think up a slightly diferent intepretation of the what the Christian story means and start a new sect.
I think it's because there are many different kinds of people, and everyone has different spiritual needs. Some need a faith with more structure, others need to find their own way of connecting with the Creator.
And just as a man who has a number of children will connect with each child in the way that best suits that child, so does the perfect Father connect with each of us in a way that works for us
ask 25 religious people what a certain verse in the bible means and you will get 25 different interpretations, see what i'm saying.
Why are there so many forms of each and every religion there is?
And so far as that goes, why are there so many forms of atheism, paganism, witchcraft, fortune telling, astrology ... ?
Because men are fallible and has the freedom to believe whatever they want to believe. By "different forms of Christian religion" I guess you're talking about denominations. Christian denominations are different forms of Christianity. They believe in the same God but disagree over side issues like baptism.
There is only one true Christian Church, but because of differences of opinion several different sects with their own idiologies erupted from the one.
Take the basic premise of Christianity that God is like a shepherd with 7 billion sheep alive today. And he won't let one get lost! God wants all of his Children home in Heaven, but we wander everywhere. And, wherever we wander, Christ the Shepherd is with us. So if we need priests, he is in a denomination that has priests. If we need pastors, he is in a denomination that has pastors. If we need a church that forbids dancing, or drinking, or gambling, or allows them all, we can have a denomination like that, and he will be with us all.
The one God is with every one, in every denomination.
There are different forms of Christianity because as in any following, people have a difference of opinion. Baptist focus more on baptism, Lutherans identify with the theology of Martin Luther, a German reformer etc. As imperfect humans we tend to argue over the small issues but in general Christians believe the same general thing. Jesus died to cleanse the sins of the sinner and give them eternal life in heaven. No matter baptist, Lutheran, Episcopal, catholic, etc regardless of the small in differences, if you should be baptized by a shell or dunked under water, if there will be rapture before the great tribulation or after. :::: Remember all Chrisitians ARE imperfect and a work in progress. NONE do what Jesus would do all the time and christians will constantly fall, judge, manipulate, steal, and lie at one point or multiple int their walk. God judges our hearts no matter who you are.
That's a good question an a lot of people think that Christianity is only a fraction of the population in the world. There are so many denominations and sub-denominations of the Christian religion. Even churches of the same denomination differ from one to another. If somebody is looking for a church they should visit one and get an opinion of it and see if they like the feel of it. However, if the sermons go against what the Bible says, he should get out of their quick.
