Many Christian Denominations But All Believe In The Same Core Doctrine

[John Arthur the Atheist/Agnostic] said, “If the above claim is true, why then are there over 40,000 denominations in the world today, most of whom are Fundamentalist ones, each differing in aspects of theology, biblical hermeneutics, Christian ethics and Christian praxis?”

A spiritually dead person trying to explain spiritual things is like a mechanic explaining brain surgery. It is never going to happen. 

The different denominations who are Evangelical ALL believe in the core doctrine of Holy Scripture, no deviation.

Core Doctrine of the Christian faith

  • Jesus is God
  • Jesus is the Son of God
  • The Trinity [Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit are three distinct persons but at the same time all three are the same God]
  • Virgin Birth of Jesus
  • The Bible as the Word of God
  • Jesus’ death and resurrection
  • Faith in Jesus alone brings salvation

For example:

You have 32 NFL Football Teams who do some things differently, but they ALL follow the same rules and regulations. The different teams practice with the standard ball, wear the same helmet, pads, shoes, and sports jerseys. Even though they have different colors and images on their clothes, it is all relatively the same.

Football Teams

That is a picture of the many denominations. They are all Christians that do things a little different but when it comes down to Biblical doctrine, they all believe the same, unless they are liberal Christians and cults who believe and worship a false Jesus.

  1. Excellent post, SpaniardVIII. I do have a question though: Although those like Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons consider themselves Christians; do you?

    The reason I ask is because I’m not sure how I feel about them because I’ve never really had interactions with them.

    1. Good to see you Joshua. Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons are what you call: Cults. The reason being is that they believe in a different Jesus and work-based salvation. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that Jesus was the first creation of God and He is now the Archangel Michael. The Mormons believe that Jesus and Satan are brothers. They also believe in many godsand that men can become a god.

      1. I am perplexed by your response, which agrees with exactly what I just said, and contradicts your own statements.
        You are playing the “Own The Definition” game. You claim that all the Christian sects believe your core tenets, and then quickly begin weeding out those who don’t, by claiming that they’re not ‘real Christian.’
        Carried to it’s logical conclusion, you will swiftly eliminate almost every Protestant sect, since most don’t hold to ‘Jesus is God’ or ‘Trinity,’ or that Jesus alone brings salvation. Soon, you’ll be down to little more than the Catholics, and your claim that they all agree with you will be shown baseless. 😦

      2. LOL…my response was a joke, I guess atheists have abandoned their sense of humor.

        Your second absurd comment is really a sad joke in all sense of the word.

        If a professing Christian denies what is in the Bible [the core doctrine], that will not make him or her a believer in Christ, it is that simple. But, ALL genuine Christians do believe in the core doctrine as I stated in my post. Ask any Evangelical if you wish. Liberal Christianity is not Christian or any cult for that matter as both groups deny sound doctrine.

      3. Oh, that was a joke.
        I don’t know about Atheists, but your posts have given me a good laugh several times – especially the part where I don’t agree with you in lockstep, and you make me into one.
        Jesus never said that he was God, only that he was the Son of God. Perhaps you could quote Bible chapter and verse to prove the Doctrine of Trinity. That’s just another Catholic delusion.
        Christ preached and ministered to everyone – tax collectors, prostitutes – he taught to be open, loving and acceptant to all. Maybe you didn’t get the memo.
        You desperate, insecure, exclusionary Apologetics give the rest of us real Christians a bad name. No wonder that Atheists laugh at you. 😯

      4. [question] “Jesus never said that he was God, only that he was the Son of God.”

        John 14:7-9
        7 “If you know Me, you will also know My Father. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.”

        8 “Lord,” said Philip, “show us the Father, and that’s enough for us.”

        9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been among you all this time without your knowing Me, Philip? The one who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

        Who is the Father? The answer is God. I would suggest for you to read the passages above by putting the word God where “My Father” is located and then reread the passages and it will become more clear that Jesus indeed said that He is God.

        [question] “Perhaps you could quote Bible chapter and verse to prove the Doctrine of Trinity. That’s just another Catholic delusion.”

        Matthew 28:19-20
        19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

        Jesus wanted His disciples to baptize new converts into the [singular] name of God which represents 3 persons: the Father, The Son [Jesus Christ], and the Holy Spirit.

        There is ONE God who exists as three persons. In the same way, a person is comprised of three parts: flesh, bones, and spirit. Even if you would separate them it will still be the same person, not a different one.
