Is there actually one Christian church? This is barely true any longer. There more than 1,500 identified Christian denominations. Whether you belong to a Christian church or not, you could wonder regarding exactly how exactly the single church that Jesus Christ organized when he was on the earth has ended up being so many different confidences with many different teachings as well as theologies. Why has the Christian church changed in time?
Jesus Christ set up the Christian church when he was on the planet. He called apostles as well as provided guidelines about how it was meant to be run. He provided one man, Simon Peter, the authority to lead the church. They largely preached to and also taught the Jewish people since that is where they lived. They were Jewish. However the Jews mainly declined Jesus and also his message of being the long-awaited Messiah. They tortured him. After he was tortured the apostles of the Christian church continuouslied teach the scripture to the Jews. Then, a guy named Saul (later on transformed to Paul) was converted to the Christian church and also started to educate the scripture to the Gentiles (those that were not of the Jewish faith.) This was basically the first division that took place in the Christian church since although it was exactly what Christ showed, it was not exactly what most of the very early Christians wanted.
After that in the very early 1500’s people began to examine the teachings as well as methods of the Catholic Church-namely that church members could not check out or analyze the bibles by themselves. The clergymans were the just one enabled to do this. Some also questioned the approach of baptism, which was sprinkling of babies. They felt that it needs to be baptism by immersion of adults like Jesus Christ.
