My friends, we can see many sect and denominations of Protestant. They have different names. For example Baptist, there are so many name of sect. They have different kind of doctrine and contradicting to its other. Which of these Protestant denominations is of God? Christ says not all saying "Lord, Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven".(Matthew 7:21)

I am a baptist,Baptist is not protest,we are not against God to protest but we are pro who stand God,the only way to Heaven our way of salvation and none else. Protest are those who are turning away from God's doctrine to another way of teachings,or doctrine of CHRIST salvation. And we are not from any religion and we are different to them. Baptist is the Church who preach Jesus the only way to Heaven. And we are not base of salvation through works,but through Jesus and out through faith in Him.Eph 2:8,9And we can know for sure that salvation is given now,and who will accept it will obtain Eternal life John 3:16

Thanks befrindwithme26 of your comments. All of us needs salvation in the second coming of our Lord. But for salvation not faith alone but through works. Because faith alone can not be saved. Apostle James taught if faith with no deeds is like the faith of Satan, we know Satan will not be saved (James 2:19). The works being taught by Christ for Salvation is to enter in Him, through His Church. The Church that Christ Build. It is the Church of Christ. (John 10:9, Matthew 16:18; Romans 16:16). We can not read in the Bible, that Baptist is the Church preach by Jesus. Have a good day.

Protestants are a reaction to the corruption in the Roman Church. After the Roman Church split from the Orthodox and from he Old Catholic Church it became rife with corruption. Thomas Aquinus mixed Aristotelianism with Christ's teaching and other novel doctrines were introduced. The Roman Church also persecuted the oldest Church, finally destroying it at the synod of Whitby. Much of the Roman Churches teaching runs counter to that of Jesus Baptists, are not protestants but seek to return to a more authentic Christianity. Jesus commands his followers to baptise, meaning to immerse. Splashing some water on your head is NOT baptism. Furthermore, Jesus stated and intends us to live as brothers and sisters not in a hierarchy. Salvation is through faith and works but faith naturally leads to works, what James is saying is that if you have faith then works follows, one who professes faith but shows no works, whose faith shows no change within their life, has no real faith. all the best, urban

There are many confusion about which denomination is the true Christians. Are we really sure about the denomination we follow is the right one. Like always, the Roman Catholic will say that theirs are the original Christian teaching while others say they are the truth because the see fault in Roman Catholic teaching and form a new denominant to be more closer to God. For me, a Christian must follow the way of Christ and His teaching. Baptism and communion is something that Christ himself doing and urge us to do. Any churches that against this two, then it is wrong. I hope you get what I meant.

Who will enter the kingdom has nothing to do with the denominations one attaches oneself to. It has to do with the relationship between a person and God. If your heart is right, you will enter the kingdom, although your doctrine may not be exactly right. If your doctrine is in perfect alignment with God's word, but your heart isn't in it, it's all for nothing. Protestants have splintered off over and over because of varying doctrines but that's not important at all to the end result.
