Why so many??
The topic for a little while is denominations.
I have often wondered about denominations and why there are so many. I suppose one reason is the doctrinal differences that make up so many denominations.
Denominations describe who we are and what we believe. They are like last names in a way. A person would look foolish telling you their name is "Ted" and that is all. You may say "Ted, what?" He would say "Just Ted." His last name would tell you what family he is from and in some areas it might tell you where he resides. It defines who we really are. His family is not the "Ted" family. That just tells you a little about him. His last name would separate him from a dozen other "Ted's" that you might know.
That is the way denominations are. They define us.
I welcome your input as to what you think and whether you think denominations are a good thing or not.
