If there’s nothing that gets people talking about Christianity in a derogatory manner (other than God, Jesus, the Devil, hell, heaven, angels, demons, and so on and so forth) it’s the thousands of denominations within its exalted realm of truth that can really get a conversation going.
From Catholicism, Protestantism, Eastern Orthodoxy — what I would consider the main three divisions of Christianity though I’m sure there are those out there who would know better than I, we have various denominations that call one of these three categories their ‘parent’ in some form or another.
As a matter of fact, mainstream Christian publishers frown on the use of denominations in books because of the divide, choosing to focus more on core elements of Christianity centered around the work of Christ, the nature of God, the state of man, etc.
Yet, these denominations do exist and I think it’s important to talk about them.
Our guest contributor, Bridgett Henson is an indie author who has recently published her debut novel, Whatever He Wants. I had the privilege of reading this wonderful work before publication and was enthralled at her realism in this very well done Christian work. For one thing, the characters aren’t holier-than-thou Christians who always go to God for everything. For another, she made a definite use of a denomination in her story, and she does it in a world filled with violence, promiscuity, and the sad state of the human condition.
And she is no stranger to being exposed to various denominations herself.
