Good Things About Church
the body of Christ on earth as a whole has the truth...any individual church of whatever order that claims "the whole truth is revealed to,and wholly understood by themselves" has already fulfilled the biblical attributes of a cult/sect/faction etc...(as Paul explains at the beginning of Corinthians I believe?).

The sad fact about different denominations is the proof that God's children cannot completely agree on everything God tells us in His word. However, the good side to the whole thing is if we're God's children we still love & respect each others right to disagree. And take comfort in the fact that we will all be together in heaven & completely agree on everything then. That's a wonderful thing to know & look forward to.

a catholic is nonChristian: and a Lutheran and Baptist and Pentecostal are Christian.

The Church is not a Building but a Body and the Head is Jesus. He purchased His body with His own Blood (sacrifice).
He paid for our favor, blessing & Salvation.
He said on the Cross right before he died "PAID IN FULL"

There is nothing good about man made denominations.
There is only one Church with Christ as the head and true believers as the body.
---michael_e on 6/28/10|
The good thing about the Church is it's the Body of Christ, with Christ and not man as the Head.
The bad thing about churches is most people think the Church is some man made building they go to on Sunday Mornings.

The good thing about church is that it gives people a place to gather and worship God together.
The bad thing about giving them denominations, have their own traditions and man-made, sometimes false doctrines.
For example: The Baptists don't believe tongues are for today, so they only water baptise, not Holy Spirit baptise. The Catholics water baptise at birth and a baby doesn't understand what it's for...John the Baptist water baptised Jesus when Jesus was an adult. So why not follow that example for water baptism? So many churches don't follow the bible, they geer off on their own man-made traditions and that's called false doctrine. Revelation says don't add to this book or take anything away from it.

mima At odds.
2nd.Cor.6 v 14, what fellowship has light(The Church of The Living God) with darkness(the Man-made relig-org's churches beginning with the rcc.) What fellowship has the righteous(The Church of The Living God) with the unrighteous(the Man-made relig-org's churches.)
I tell you The Truth, I reply to these blogs & I will Not say things to tickle peoples hearing for what they want to hear & that Is the status-quo of loose living Man-made christian people, that's what the ministers of the Man-made relig - org's churches Are doing. I'm Not going to tell you people lies to be lost.

Lawrence in saying this,"once saved always saved,easy believism,no works salvation,the sinners prayer etc the which Are Lies. NO scriptural basis." You have perfectly described what I believe. Of particular interest is that I do not believe in works salvation but you apparently do. I have read to men from the Bible where it says," not of works" and these same men looked me in the eye and say, I still believe it is of works.
So I would say that you and I are really at odds. Is it not a wonderful world where we can be at odds and still communicate.

The good-bad,the ugly,that's good.
The Good. There's Only 1 God & He has Only 1 Church with 1 salvation plan Acts 2 v's 37- 41. Matt.24 v 9 we are the ones. Colo.3 v 17 The name Jesus Christ for ALL,even water baptism.
*The bad. The Man-made relig-org's churches beginning with the rcc Matt.15 v 9,2nd.Cor. 11 v's 14-15 has salvation plans once saved always saved,easy believism,no works salvation,the sinners prayer etc the which Are Lies. NO scriptural basis.
The ugly. The devil,like the pied-piper playing his deceiving tunes saying you can do as in the above where this * is & flirt with the world. Ministers teaching to those for what they want to hear. The Man-mades with people in the world together,I can't tell the diff.

It depends on whether you are looking for a formal setting, or a casual setting, or something in between. That's the good thing, I suppose. The bad thing is devil may be a preaching.

When it comes to things of God, He is flawless. When it comes to different religions, it have plenty of flaws. So as Christians all we can do is to focus on the positive and not the negative of different denomination.
---Kimbe7395 on 6/5/10|
The bad thing is the word "denomination". It comes from the same word as "denominator" and implies division. We are to gather to One....the One who died to reconcile and rose again to save. There will never be an assembly until we all gather over the right thing.

What are the GOOD and BAD things about church denominations such as Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc?
THE GOOD: you can worship with people who are like minded without controversy.
THE BAD: Only one of all the denominations in the world can be teaching the total truth. While some denomination have some truth, all but one has deadly errors. So that is the methodist is the true church of God, the pentecostal is false teachers and so on.
THE UGLY: Many people are aware that thier denomination has grave errors, but they do not leave because they do not know where to go.

The Man-made relig-org's churches beginning with the trin-rcc then her offspring daughters churches came later on. The Whole body of the Man-mades Prov.14 v 12, Matt.15 v 9, 2nd.Cor 4 v 4, 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14-15 the devil has blinded those about Jesus name baptism. Jesus name baptism Is All part of the wedding garment, John 10 v 1 trying to get into heaven without Jesus name baptism, Matt.22 v's 11-13, the man here represents The Whole body of the Man-made relig-org's churches, did Not have on the wedding garment & Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19-20, living a clean & holy life etc Is the wedding garment.
Again 2nd.Cor.4 v 4, 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14-15 Has Blinded Many against The Truth of God.

The Churches you named all teach, maybe not blatantly and openly that theirs is the only church that is right. In fact no church, just is no person, is totally correct in everything they believe. There is a segment a small group in all churches who know the truth and the truth is that we all need the Lord Jesus Christ to be our sole source of salvation. Characteristics of this group are they pray to the father in the name of the son the Lord Jesus Christ. Some speak in tongues others do not let all recognize the gift of tongues at the same time recognize that tongues are not necessary for salvation.

\\he rcc the first of the trin-relig-org's churches Are All Man-made, the presby, naz, aog, bapt, episco, cog, luth, c-science etc\\
That's why I'm not a member of a man-made religion, but am Orthodox.

The Good. The Apostolic Pentecost Church was born on the day of Pentecost according to Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19-20. This God given Salvation which was delivered to the Jewish people First by Apostle Peter. Apostle Paul brought this very same to us gentiles. There is less of God's Churches in the world.
The bad. The above paragraph the trin people & leaders deny. The rcc the first of the trin-relig-org's churches Are All Man-made, the presby, naz, aog, bapt, episco, cog, luth, c-science etc. There is more of these Man-made relig-org's churches in the world because of here, Matt.15 v 9, 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14-15. Even the gods of buddha, allah, hindu's etc. Such Good people but so spiritually darkened.
