Why Are There So Many Different Christian Religions?

  • Question 01
    What are some things people look for when searching for a new church home? Are these necessarily bad things? Are they good things?
  • Question 02
    After watching this video, what mindset must we have when searching for a church home? What should be the determining factor when selecting a church home?
  • Question 03
    Jesus, the apostles, and the early Christians emphasized unity and oneness when discussing the church. Where is this unity based and how is it achieved?
  • Question 04
    Do you believe this unity is possible? Why or why not?
  • Question 05
    Why is it important for Jesus’ church to remain unified? What happens when the church stops being “one” (see Ephesians 4:4-6)?
  • Question 06
    Do you believe it is possible to discover the church Jesus established among all the religious organizations in the world? How would the apostles and early Christians respond to this same question?
  • Exercise 01
    Rather than going to “the church of your choice,” we should go to the church of Jesus’ choice or the one He established. The churches of Christ make it their goal to be true to Christ’s teachings in the New Testament. That doesn’t mean that every building with the name “Church of Christ” on it is following Jesus. You need to check it out for yourself and compare the church’s teaching with the New Testament. Share your experiences with your study group. Did you find a congregation that is trying to follow the New Testament? If you need help finding a church of Christ, feel free to contact us at
  • Exercise 02
    From your study in Mathetis, make a short list of the most important Bible teachings that will help you choose a church that is following Jesus’ lead. Share with your group.
