Which Denomination Of Christianity Is The Most Biblical?

Basically since I see so many youtube videos pertaining to the issues of specific denominations being "satanic" I thought it would be a good idea for a debate between all the denominations. So give good arguments and lets get ready to rumble

I would say non-denomination because back then there were no denominations. The only church back then that was created was the church that the disciples started up in the book of Acts, so I follow that one because they were with Christ and hung out with him.

Biblical Christianity is the most Biblical, it is not a denomination but the closest denomination to being Biblical is Independent Fundamental King James Bible Baptist.

Jesus said we are to preach the gospel, making disciples and baptizing them. The first step when Jesus started His ministry was to get baptized by John the Baptist, whose message was "repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." After He was baptized, Jesus carried the same message with the same words, "repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." The apostles required the replacement for Judas Iscariot to be a man baptized after John's baptism. The apostle Paul was baptized before beginning his ministry. Jesus never said he was a baptist, but He sure taught and ministered in keeping with the baptism of John the Baptist and referred to His own suffering on the cross prior to His resurrection as "baptism". You might guess that I am a baptist. There are many churches and denominations which hold pretty close if not identical to baptists. I prefer the boldness of the name, "Baptist". When you say "Baptist", everybody has a pretty good idea of what you believe and teach....but I must say there are a lot of churches that claim to be baptists but are far from being Biblical in doctrine and practice. Compromising doctrine to accommodate worldly indulgences make a lot of "Christians" today look no different than non-Christians.

I don't think so. It's those who leave their foolish doctrines of men behind and get new manna everyday.

So the answer and the only answer Jesus said you will know them by their fruit!

Matt 7

13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, you will know them by their fruits.

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”

The earthquakes that Jesus warned about are physical, but He was mostly referring to cracking foundations under all the Churches that are not following Him the Way He said to follow!

and when did their legs change into fore-flukes and tail flukes, and how did this change happen so fast that they were not floating around like blobs of blubberish shark bait? And then while they were floating like blobs of shark bait, they no longer could go onto land to have their babies and they filled the bay with menstrual blood and they were not devoured by schools of sharks?

There are no denominations in Jesus' body.

There is 1 church and 1 body.

And

1 John 4

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. 4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 5 They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

Well, I got news for you. John the Baptist baptized Jesus, Jesus taught that His followers are to make disciples and baptize them, all of the apostles were baptized according to John's baptism.......it sounds to me like all Christians according to the Bible are supposed to be Baptists like John the Baptist.

You need to burn those fake Bibles of yours and read the gospels and the book of Acts again in the real English Bible.

And also, any Church that is teaching divisions and not showing the Way that Jesus said to go is getting Judged, and the earthquakes are happening right now, as she drinks God's up of Wrath mixed especially for her!

Revelation 18New American Standard Bible (NASB)

18 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory.

2 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”

4 I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues;

5 for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her.

7 To the degree that she glorified herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning.’ 8 For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong.

Proverbs 5 - see if you can make any connections to end time prophesies

My son, give attention to my wisdom,

Incline your ear to my understanding;

2 That you may observe discretion

And your lips may reserve knowledge.

3 For the lips of an adulteress drip honey

And smoother than oil is her speech;

4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood,

Sharp as a two-edged sword.

5 Her feet go down to death,

Her steps take hold of Sheol.

6 She does not ponder the path of life;

Her ways are unstable, she does not know it.

7 Now then, my sons, listen to me

And do not depart from the words of my mouth.

8 Keep your way far from her

And do not go near the door of her house,

9 Or you will give your vigor to others

And your years to the cruel one;

10 And strangers will be filled with your strength

And your hard-earned goods will go to the house of an alien;

11 And you groan at your final end,

When your flesh and your body are consumed;

12 And you say, “How I have hated instruction!

And my heart spurned reproof!

13 “I have not listened to the voice of my teachers,

Nor inclined my ear to my instructors!

14 “I was almost in utter ruin

In the midst of the assembly and congregation.”

And fresh water from your own well.

John the Baptist preached "repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand" then Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist and began his ministry by preaching "repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand", being baptized after the manner of John's baptism was a requirement for the apostles........

Now if you get baptized by a Methodist minister in a Methodist church, you will be a Methodist. If you get baptized by a non-demonic minister, you will be non-demonic. If you get baptized like Jesus did, by a Baptist, you will be a Baptist like Jesus and John.

Now you tell me, which denomination is the most Biblical? Remberer, there is no Methodist or non-denominated church or Lutheran or Catholic in the Bible, and all Christians baptized in the Bible were baptized according to John's baptism.

Repent

Why dont you try and explain to him how you come here and insult people using all the names under the sun in totsl disregard for what Jesus wanted but yet you never repent and will still go to heaven. How does that work? You are an repentant sinner, Sunday, and there is a special place in hell for frauds like you.

Even though I haven't seen everything he said what I will say is this. Jesus allows us to judge other beliefs, ideologies, and religions. However from my knowledge I haven't found any scripture that supports judging the person himself. To reiterate you can judge a persons actions, beliefs, ideology, or other religions. In contrast you cannot judge the person or use hypocritical judgement (judging somebody for something you are already guilty of).

You should go back and read the gospels again and look at the names Jesus called people who hated Him and His message. He told them the truth and the words I choose to describe your character are truthful. They crucified Jesus because they hated the truth, Jesus said the world would hate me the same as they hated Him if I carry His message which is the gospel so you don't surprise me at all, in fact I take your hatred against me as a good indication that I am following the Lord not fearing His cross but rather carrying it gladly.

Personally I think this is a straw-man. Who baptized you doesn't imply demonic intent. Yes there is no doubt John the Baptist baptized but he didn't create Baptist's (denomination). Jesus just used Johns way of baptism cause that is how God wanted it. Methodist doctrine from what I have seen is ok. If you are baptized you belong to God not the Methodist church (considering a Methodist gets baptized). This doesn't make Baptism the true denomination or most biblical. Methodist and Baptist doctrines are for the most part biblical. The only bad side of the Baptist denomination is its reputation for having un-biblical doctrines such as god hates fags, Jew', and the world (Westboro) or still believe in the Levitican Law even though Jesus's atonement abolished it (Faithful Word).

"demonic" was a word-play pun on "denominational" as in "non-denominational". Somehow I knew people would not catch it, but I get carried away having too much fun sometimes.

Denominations limit God from revealing Himself

Jesus is the Head of His Church, not Denominations.

And the Body of Christ is to be ONE. Without divisions.

Denominations are divisions . So I don't know how or why man thought that was a good idea.

They left the Lord of Christianity behind, and He stands at the door knocking.

Soon He will no longer knock.

Soon people will come to Him saying Lord Lord didn't we do this and that in your name? And He will say depart from Me, I never knew you.

That will be a sad day, when Deceptions, all of them will be revealed.

Revelations 3

Message to Laodicea

14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:

15 ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 16 So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say,

“I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,”

and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, 18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.

19 Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.

21 He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”
