I'm not sure about over there X but with the ones I know here that's not the case, we disagree with most other Denominations, we have Elders and discuss different interpretations of the Bible unfortunately, Qld only has 2 Non Denom Churches and they're too far away now. This is part of the reason I'm struggling with choosing a church to go to, they all seem to have way too many disagreements, confusing interpretations etc...I do sometimes say Religion when I mean Denomination too, I used to think it was all the same thing, if that helps. I think the closest but not quite that I've seen to what meshes with my beliefs is my sis in law who is a non orthodox Presbyterian. Riders in the Storm gave me this link to a test to determine one's denomination and that reckons I'm a Pressie lol. But I'm not sure yet.
Ever think about just becoming a Buddhist? No hell, no devils, no demons, no imposed guilt trips...just a search for enlightenment.

Since I don't know what you're pulling out of yor sleeve, here's another good discussion of the sects of late second-temple Judaism.
It's from the Jesus to Christ site
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows...
The Pharisees were bashed because they supported 'the Law' even though they believed in resurrection, while Sadducees were bashed because they were reformers but denied resurrection. The Essenes were viewed as Gnostics so they didn't get trashed until much later in Christian history.

That leaves few Jews unbashed. So much for the "Christianity isn't antisemitic" statements.

And I argue for a fourth option: The ending became problematic and was redacted.
But I cannot *know* that and have to admit my position doesn't even make Metzger's list of possibilities.
But if these things were easy to puzzle through, they wouldn't be any fun.

I would be a fool to say that you're wrong or that I was right.

<quoted text>Why would God choose the adherents to any man made religion over another man made religion? Which is the one sect of the 39,000 from which God chooses names for his list? It's all so very silly sounding to me for Christians to think that their small little sect of Christianity is the only pool from which God has to choose, while at the same time counting all Christians together when trying to make a point about how Christianity is taking over the earth. But then, when you tell them what a Catholic or a JW has to say, you say they are not 'real' Christians.
You guys are a hoot to watch in action.
This is the choice for you today, salvation in Christ or damnation without Him.
That is what Jesus taught.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.(John 3:16-18)
Afterward he appeared unto the eleven and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.(Mark 16:14-16)

Jesus is the only way !!!!! its by faith not works

Ain't that a cryin' shame.
