Denominations
DENOMINATIONS are religious organisations that
are midway between churches and sects.
An example of this is Methodism.
This is when they broadly accept society’s values,
but they are not linked to the function of the state.
This means that they can restrict their members,
such as banning alcohol, but they do not restrict
those who do not believe, and do not insist that
their way is the one way of truth.
Denominations often form gradually. This
can be the effect of historical events,
culture, influence, power and geographic
location.
They can also happen rather rapidly, for
example when somebody rather influential
experiences something that questions their
pattern of thought.
Theories of existence, science etc. can really
alter the way people believe, and form new
versions of former religions.
Christian Denominations
All of these different denominations still follow the same common
name, structure, and doctrine (set of beliefs taught by a church or
a group) within Christianity.
The main differences between each denomination is that certain
members have various doctrines about the Church and the story of
Jesus Christ.
Examples of denominations within Christianity are Catholics,
Protestants, Anglicans etc.
Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox churches are separate
from western Christianity as they separate themselves
geographically.
