    I'm pretty sure all three of these worship Jesus. They just argue over the specifics Like when I try to explain the differences between Catholics and Orthodox to normal people their reaction is usually along the lines of "That's it?"

      Specifics like how you get saved? So the most important part of the faith?

      >"That's it? Just one "church" thinks a man is infallible and can change the dogma whenever he wants? Pffft."
      No one cares what atheists think about theological matters, they're not the standard for anything that matters.

        You think only atheists think the differences between Catholics and Orthodox are trivial? You seriously overestimate how much the average Christian thinks about theology.

    The problem is the source text. The Bible is extremely contradictive on pretty much every issue you can think of. So those who prefer one side of the fence over the other will focus on the scripture that defends their personal preference. And thus, a new denomination is born.

      …so why do many people believe in this religion then if the original source of it keep contradicting its own truth and not faithful to itself?

    Christianity started as a persecuted cult. It was not under strong united leadership until much later, and by that time there were already a lot of regional differences, which only grew over time. Add to that that the reformation brought the idea that a Church didn't even need central leadership, so without central leadership even more variations developed.

    the hilarious thing is if you state that there are 40,000 different denominations, christians get really really offended.
    >how dare you say Pastor Jim Bob's Baptist church isnt glaringly the truth. the 39,999 other denominations know pastor Jim Bob's church is the true church. they are just being satanists.

        If you do away with protestants who hadn't existed up until few hundreds years ago so they're obviously wrong you're left with a handful. Catholics are wrong because for the first 1000 years choices were made in ecumenical councils so you're left with Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox. There are only 2 chioces.

        >true christian faith.
        Stop LARPing. Protestantism has never been a real religion, no one takes you seriously, and you're already vanishing off the face of the earth.

        I guarantee just a few threads later ill be talking with a KJV thumping Andersonite who will be outraged that you say Catholicism correct and not Baptist.

        >how could you not see the KJV baptists is the true faith?
        >catholics are pagan satanists!

            And what is your argument that catholicism is untrue? What church councils 1000 year nonsense? The pope never delegated authority to anyone.

            Do you think Catholic scholars for two thousand years were historically illiterate? They just invented the papacy in the year one thousand? What an insane conspiracy theory.

            I don't take orders from random people on the internet. I defend the Catholic faith, which is superior to the orthodox religion, and I'm not even a christian.

    those aren't "types of Christianity".
    There always been one true Church, the Catholic Church, and schismatic rebels who parted away from it.
