Sorry Nick - if it has a name that sets it apart from everyone else, it is a denomination.  (Isn't it?Huh)

Remove "Eastern Orthodox" from in front of Christian and the denominator is gone.

Who started this "denomination" thing?

A catholic priest. Maybe you know him, he went the name of Father Martin Luther. Grin
It was not Martin as he pleaded with his followers to wear Christ's name and to God give the glory, not his name or to glorify the man Luther. Well we know how that turned out. Do we not?

However it probably was not the Lutherans that coined the phrase, "denomination".

Greetings brother Ollie,
I agree with you – that’s why I answered as I did, but I think it’s a harmless question.  We all have learned to fellowship with particular groups of people who support our individual interpretations of scripture.  Things such as pre or post tribulation, women and men’s respective places within leadership, teaching and organizational structure, communion, tongues, healing, prophesying – the list goes on and on.  I can’t believe that denominational differences take away from the “One Body of Christ” as long as we all realize and agree that there is one Body.  I can’t believe that a pre-trib person is any more or less saved than a person who believes in a post-tribulation rapture – as long as everyone agrees that Jesus is everything.
Personally I enjoy learning about denominational differences.  I feel like it makes me a better Christian to learn how my brothers and sisters of other denominations in the same faith work to glorify Him.  Some Sundays, depending on when my normal service lets out, I go to a later service at a different church – I find interdenominational fellowship exhilarating, eye-opening, and just plain fun.  Smiley

Yours in The Body of Christ,
JudgeNot

Very difficult to understand all this denominating thing and being identified with all kinds of names other than the saviour Jesus Christ and being known as "Christian" and "Christian" only rather than adding other names to this identity.

I understand what you are saying in your post. I have done much of the same in my search and studies. However it turns me off when someone says, "I am Lutheran", I am Baptist", or "I am Methodist", or "I am Roman Catholic", or "I am Orthodox", etc. etc.. Why not just Christ's. Christians are not of these man's identities. God does not reveal this. Why not identify with our Christ and Him only. So my search is for those congregations that only identify with Jesus Christ and are members of His body, "Christians" only with the Bible as their only revealed complete authority from God.

However God and His Christ will make the final judgements, so I make no judgements on those that identify and wear men's names as they do believe in Jesus Christ which is the faith that saves and it is by their fruits that they are known and rewarded by their works.

The Bible teaches that all the Glory should be to God through His Son, Jesus Christ. In everything we do, say, and think.
Therefore denominating is hard to fathom in thought.

Thanks for your reply.

In Christian love,
Ollie

Ollie - I read you and understand fully, and as I said, I agree.
(But I won't change a word of my post.)  Smiley

I will not tune someone out or ignore them or not fellowship with them because they personally identify with Baptists or with Catholics.  I don't introduce myself as anything but a Christian, but if someone else does I won't condemn them (not that you have - I've never read anything you've written that condemns anyone).
However, I don't believe "one church" will be truly "one church" until we are living in His theocracy.  (Which can't be too soon for me!)

Brother JudgeNot,

I think that you and Ollie are both singing the same tune, just on a different key. I know that neither one of you would tune someone out because they claimed to belong to a certain denomination. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I think that you are saying brothers and sisters of various denominations can fellowship together, regardless of differences, if they have Jesus Christ in their heart as their Lord and Saviour. I think that Ollie is saying if we have Jesus Christ in our heart as our Lord and Saviour, we don't have any differences.

Love In Christ,
Tom

I always was tone deaf...  I can't even carry a harmonica in my pocket. (Carry a tune - get it?)   Grin

The reason everyone at the church I attend worships so loudly is to drown me out...

Brother JudgeNot,

 Grin  I got it. I'm only allowed to sing in the shower when nobody is home. Then, the dogs are the only ones that complain. They even sometimes join in.

Love In Christ,
