I wonder if all anti-Catholic cults really ponder the words of God.
The Three Wrong C’s – Product of “Bible Only” doctrines
Before we move to the question, however we must first look back in the time of Reformation, where one man named Martin Luther a former Catholic Priest started to preach in public square that the “BIBLE ALONE” and nothing else is needed by man to know God and BIBLE ALONE is the sole authority for faith. This man denounced the teaching of his former religion and creates his own doctrines that he thinks is not beyond from what is written in the bible. Few years after, another man stands on the stage and preaches contrary to what Martin Luther’s doctrines. Same with Martin, he announced to the public that he has doctrines which are not beyond scriptures (bible) compared to the claim of the first one. Again, on the third time another man sing a same song but different from the first two doctrines [Martin Luther and John Calvin] and as we expect, he creates a new Church with new doctrines (Zwingli), doctrines that seems to him is not beyond what is written therefore this is the true Church.
From 16th century up to the present time, each denomination started to split into new groups and these new groups splitting to form another new group all the way down to present numbers of denominations (and sects). Again and again, each group is claiming that their doctrines are the true teachings of God according to what is written in the bible. We all know that there is ONE AND ONLY ONE TRUTH because NO TRUTH CONTRADICTS ANOTHER TRUTH; if there are two who claimed to be true, one is false but imagine the 38,000++ denominations and sects claiming to be true?
Going back to the question on why there are so many Christians denomination and sects, this is simply because they hold a wrong belief of BIBLE ALONE doctrine; BIBLE ALONE doctrine is a belief that anything which is not written is unbiblical therefore considered as false doctrines (not from Apostles and not from God). So, if you are member of a Christian denomination who hold a same view of BIBLE ALONE doctrine and you interpret one verse to another and you find that according to your interpretation that your current denomination is teaching beyond what is written, you might fall from one of the THREE WRONG C’s category:
First, the category of COMMUTED: since you knew it according to the “bible alone” that your current denomination is preaching beyond what is written (beyond what apostles and God teaches), you will scout to find another denomination that fits to your own interpretation. This is the case of some Catholic Cafeteria that after the deception made by IglesiaNiManalo INCorporated they left their original Church and join that cult.
Second category, COMPLETED (false prophets): unlike in the first category; here you failed to find any denominations that fit to your biblical interpretation, so your solution is to create and built a new denominations and proclaiming yourself to be divinely inspired by God and sent by Him to proclaim the real truth that cannot be found to anyone else. (so from 38,000 listed on the statistical data it will add 1 to make it 38,001). Good example is the case of Felix founder of INC, according to the legend and Myth after a few days of examining the bible, he found out that his former denomination teaches a false doctrines that are beyond what is written, AT LAST he established a new cult and proclaim his self as the last Messenger of God; behold THE ANGEL! (or would you like to establish a new religion and proclaim yourself as the new Messiah like Apollo Quiboloy founder of The Kingdom of Jesus Christ?)
Third, the category of CONVULSIVE (crossed eye false prophets) : this is the worse category; since you have a “bible only” as a sole authority of your faith, after reading it; you find your self that there is something wrong in the “bible”, unlike in the first two categories wherein it depends on your WRONG INTERPRETATION IN THE “WORDS” OF THE BIBLE (you follow the bible based on your wrong interpretation) in the third category THE “WORDS” IN THE BIBLE DEPENDS ON YOUR WRONG INTERPRETATION (the bible follow you based on your wrong interpretation). This is the case of Jehova’s Witnesses; they create a new bible that follows to what they believe in or that fits to their beliefs, example in Luke 22:19 the original word of Christ is “this is my body” and “this is my blood” since they don’t believe in transubstantiation, they deliberately change the original sentences to fit to their doctrines, they insert “Symbol” in each sentence so from “this is my body” it will read now as “this is the symbol of my body”; by doing this the meaning also change according to what they want. (another example, they deny the divinity of Christ so those words in the bible that speaks about Christ being “worship” they change it with “obeisance” etc.)
Converted, Completed or Convulsive, these categories really divide the people of God. Christ does not want his church be divided “that all of them may be ONE, Father, just you are in me and I am in you.” [Jn 17:21]. DISUNITY, SCHISM AND DIVISION is a product of Satan who wants to take our soul; “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned to me strengthen your brothers.” [Lk 22:31-32].
In the end, let us listen to Christ teachings; let us listen to his Church founded by him, Church who gave the Bible to the world, Church that can truly interpret the word in the bible. Church under the stewardship of Peter and passed to the present Pope and this Church is the
the “PILLAR AND BULWARK OF TRUTH” [1Tim 3:15]. And not the bible alone. CATHOLIC CHURCH
(p.s. Read the True Three C’s: the Catechism of the Catholic Church and always remember “BIBLE ONLY” is unbiblical [From the Book of Genesis to Revelation no single verse that teaches “BIBLE ONLY” doctrines])
Unity in Voting is not unity at all but Dictatorship.
Uniformity with conditions is not discipline but Totalitarianism.
