Sorry marge, but confusion, disagreement and competition doesn't come 'from above', and protestantism is rife with it.<quoted text>
That hardly ever happens where im from just the opposite, many many pasters sent out with the same Message of Truth.
They received the Truth from above for themselves, just like we taught them.
Interpretation from above.
Within a few miles of my home there are at least 20 protestant communities all competing with each other for membership. I have seen a number of them change hands several times, each with a 'new and improved' message (and pastor, lol). Down the road is an old convenience store that's been taken over by one of these groups, you should see the billboards they put out every week. If I was a protestant searching for a new congregation my head would be spinning with all the options and differing messages.
