Im a Christian. And im curious what religions are like mine, and what isnt? like catholic, lutheran, prodastant, jw, and such!

i want to learn more and dont know who has same beliefs different beliefs, i get some answers from others with other religions that seem so similar and then answers that are so different from what im taught. and i wonder where they all get there different answers! there is only one bible right? i mean i know there is only one bible to follow the holy bible but is there other books pretending to be the bible is that why there are so many different answers. its so confusing. All i know is i believe in God, and Jesus and Jesus died for our sins and in asking for forgiveness and that there is hell and devil (satan) where none believers and unsaved go. i believe as my own personal personality to treat everyone good, with respect, and loving also. Can anyone help me out here?

Sounds like you're on the right track. Just because there are variations in other beliefs, doesn't mean other people aren't going to heaven. It is sad that some fundamentalist religions preach this.

Hi! Stumpette. The reason there are so many different religions is because most do not have a clue about the Baptism Of The Holy Spirit. Without the Spirit of God within us we can know nothing of God or His Word. That's why Jesus said you must be Born Again. When man sinned we became spiritually dead and are blinded to the truth. Therefore when Jesus came and died for our sins if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior and repent of our sins and are baptisted into the Holy Spirit we become Born Again of His Spirit. The ones that are like minded are Baptist, Assembly Of God, Methodist, Non-Denominational churches, Pentecostal, Protestant, Any church that believes that Jesus was God in the flesh and believes in the Trinity and in water baptism and the baptism of the Holy Spirit and believes in being Born Again. God Bless!

Ellipsical

Catholics, Protestants, and Lutherans are Christians. Lutherans are Protestants. There are many religions, and none of them have the same beliefs. Other religious books aren't pretending to be the Bible and there are different types of Bibles. There are a lot of different answers because everyone is alive and has some of the same basic questions about it.

Though the article is talking about writing, here is a good start for one branch if Christianity, but it will demonstrate how diverse we really are. God bless.

All religions are substantially the same -- produced by the same causes -- that all rest on a misconception of the facts in nature -- that all are founded on ignorance and fear. All religions, so far as I know, claim to have been miraculously founded, miraculously preserved, and miraculously propagated. The priests of all claimed to have messages from God and claimed to have a certain authority. Christianity, too, is like the rest -- that it was not a revelation, but a natural growth -- that its gods and devils, its heavens and hells, were borrowed -- that its ceremonies and sacraments were souvenirs of other religions -- that no part of it came from heaven, but that it was all made by savage man. All the religions were substantiated by sacred books precisely as Christianity. Christian witnesses are no better than theirs, and Christian success is no greater. If their miracles were false, Christian miracles cannot be true.

If the average Christian had been born in Turkey, he would have been a Muslim; and if the average Muslim had been born in England and educated at Sunday school, he would have regarded the damnation of the heathen as the "tidings of great joy."

All of the religions you mentioned in your Q are Christian and unless you belong to one if the orthodox religions you are Protestant. The only currently practiced religion that is even remotely similar to Christianity is the Zoroastrian religion. They have an almighty god, a saviour god and an evil god. Islam and Jewish in essence claim to worship the same god as the christians, but feel the others are doing it wrong.

Hi, Stumpette!
It's me, the Catholic priest's brother, again. Not knowing much about what you've asked, except that the Roman Catholic Church is the only one founded by Jesus Christ, I just searched, and found the best, most recent, comparison chart for you at:
http://www.religionfacts.com/big_religion_chart.htm
I will research, and answer, any questions you have about Catholicism.
Please let me know, after reading it, if this chart was helpful, or not. If so, I'll use it again. Thanks!
Frank
