Now, there are numerous christian denominations. All these interpret the teachings of Christ as well as many other Bible passages according to ther blessed convenience and each group brags that it s the only one that has got it right. But who is the one who has got it truly correct?

Hi Frederick, Do we truly know if either one of them have it right? What about other world religions, maybe one of them has it right. Should religion really be about rituals and ceremonies, about singing and speaking in tongues, should it even be about worship? Would the creator of the universe really require mankind to worship him/her? Maybe real religion is a way of life and every word and action a prayer. Blessings.

You know, I asked myself that question for years. I have finally come to the determination that they all have downfalls. I am extremely happy in the church im in now though and the answer is apparent to me. None of them are right. The right answer to me is just to love and worship God. To pray, and try to be a better person everyday. I have totally changed this past year and only for the better and all those questions seem very clear to me now. I think they all have their good points but they all pick and choose the things they feel are important. They all interpret in their own way. Unless they are acting in a selfless manner and simply loving Him and believing in Him and trying to be the best christian they can be, I think they are wrong. I think the bible is sometimes overanalyzed. I think for me, religion is more of a child like faith. My church doesn't look down on others or boast over others. They just encourage goodness and love and it really works.

Okay, I am a Christian and am Church of God (contemporary). We don't handle snakes and all that crap, but we do strongly believe in what we are taught. First off, let me say that I actually grew up Baptist. We stood up when we were supposed to and sang when we were supposed to and then sat back down when we were supposed to. Thankfully, a lot of Baptist churches are getting more charismatic and getting up and clapping and singing and raising their hands. In my own church now, we dance and sing and raise banners and raise our hands and, yes, tounges are spoken there. Not everyone at one time unless in prayer, but if there is a word from the Lord one will speak it and one will interpret it. As for what different churches think, I won't sit here on my churches behalf and say that everything we learn is 100% on the money. I think that any denomination is going to have a flaw in there somewhere. I mean, only Christ was perfect. We live by the Word and the word says to make a joyful noise unto the Lord and to raise banners and to let the Holy Spirit flow out of your mouth. Unless churches are out there preaching sin, it's hard to say who is right or wrong at times. Some you just feel are wrong and if you are really in the Word and prayer and the Lord says not to do something or not to listen to something, then it's best not to do it. God bless
