    Just a thought. It occurred to me that those on FR need a place to discuss religion, religious thought, denominal issues all things religious without worrying about hurt feelings or bruised egos. This would be a bare knuckle discussion. If you have thin skin or are easily offended it would be better not to participate.
  • Immigration: A cause of growth of the American Catholic Church?

    Further church membership notes, relating to ethnicity: Consider two facts: First, the Catholic Church in America is growing. Second, the Hispanic population in America is exploding. Cardinal Mahony and radio talk-show host Mike Savage both seem to think the second fact is the explanation for the first. They have polar-opposite feelings about this fact, and they both show high contempt for each others’ feelings. (Not that Cardinal Mahony singled out Mike Savage by name.) But are the two related? The Census Bureau’s 1990 data report 22.3 million Hispanics. By 2003, that number increased to 39.9 million. Various studies have found...

  • The blame game

    Gospel Union ^ | April 5, 2005 | Kevin Harper
    One thing I've been thinking about is where the blame lies for the current state of factionalism in Christianity. As a parent, I don’t tolerate my children blaming someone else for their own unloving actions. “He started it,” I hear. When I follow up on the story, I usually find out a little more than I wanted to know about the ability of children to think like lawyers, and present the facts as skillfully as any defense attorney. But my children also know the response they will get from me. I always point back to their God-given responsibility for their...
  • Creeds, a toothless watchdog

    If creeds are so useful for the truth they may contain, but are not authoritative for our salvation, then we might as well call Moby Dick by Herman Melville a creed. Scripture is quoted in the novel, so it contains some inerrant truth, right? People view creeds as watchdogs to protect a group from heresy, but if the creed has no real authority, then it is a toothless watchdog. One bit of prose is as good as another, provided there is some semblance of truth in it.As long as we are all free to dissent with this phrase or that...
  • Attributing good motives

    It's my experience that one of the most kind and useful things we can do to facilitate edifying relationships with other believers is to assume they have good motives. When I don't recognize that a fellow Christian is sincere in what I perceive to be his error, it is far too easy to dismiss him or demonize him. Too often, I've treated a brother in error as if he is a brother wanting to be in error. The truth is that there is no other kind of brother but a brother in error while we are in this human body,...
  • Choose a Church: Denominational Branches

    05/20/2004 5:45:03 PM PDT · by xzins · 24 replies · 492+ views
    This chart is VERY general and minimal. There are literally tens of thousands of additional lines that could be included, for various unique Churches, like say, the Amana Colonies. MANY of those Churches seem to be hybrids where some local group has seen some value in each of two or more existing Denominations. So, there might be an "Evangelical Lutheran Episcopal Congregational Methodist Church", and it would be tough to even GUESS what they believed! You'd have to contact such a Church and request a Statement of Faith from them. Our hope with this chart is that, if you are...
