Why do Christian's fight amongst themselves with factions?
We are all Christian and Catholic means universal, idk why Protestants and Catholics fought themselves Protestants are just Catholics who don't believe in the papacy, I am just a Gnostic non-denominational Christian who believes in the message of God and Christ rather than man's traditions or institutions like the papacy, we are all brothers in Christ our lord and savior and one in God our LORD GOD the most high who sent our savior and is our savior as well as Christ acts in accordance with God's will and is one with God as we can be

Protestants range from churches that teach most of the truths of original and complete Christianity, to those that have rejected so much of Christian truth that they barely qualify as Christian.

We are all brothers in the flesh. We all came from Adam. But as Jesus made clear, the conduct of many make it obvious that not all are brothers in Christ - Matthew 7:15-20 - 15 “Be on the watch for the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s covering, but inside they are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruits you will recognize them. Never do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles, do they? 17 Likewise, every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, nor can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. 19 Every tree not producing fine fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Really, then, by their fruits you will recognize those men. - - - - Those that are NOT brothers in Christ will be recognized by their conduct. Fighting, arguing, and debating. These are not qualities that should be displayed by brothers in Christ. Instead, Jesus' followers are taught to be completely united - 1 Corinthians 1:10 - Now I urge you, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you should all speak in agreement and that there should be no divisions among you, but that you may be completely united in the same mind and in the same line of thought. - - - - Ephesians 4:3 - earnestly endeavoring to maintain the oneness of the spirit in the uniting bond of peace. - - - - Philippians 2:2 - make my joy full by being of the same mind and having the same love, being completely united, having the one thought in mind. - - - - So, those that are divided, constantly arguing, fighting, debating, etc., prove by their conduct that they are not brothers in Christ. Jesus made clear just how his true followers would be identified - John 13:35 - By this all will know that you are my disciples — if you have love among yourselves. - - - - Jesus' true followers would be completely united all over the globe in this love for one another. Not divided into the many conflicting religions we see around the globe. Is there a group of people united in love like Jesus said? There must be. Since Jesus said God's word is the truth - John 17:17 - Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth. - - - - There is a group of people united all over the globe. Busy doing the work Jesus said would take place just before the end comes - Matthew 24:14 - And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. - - - - So why aren't the majority of mankind seeing this work that is taking place all over the earth? Because Satan has them too busy to notice. Too distracted by other activities. Or too busy fighting among themselves. In effect, Satan is blinding people to the good news - 2 Corinthians 4:4 - among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through. - - - - If Satan can keep people too busy, too distracted, in effect he is blinding people from seeing the good news that is being preached throughout the entire planet. Keeping them from believing that the good news is being preached all over the globe. In complete unity. - - - - For those that want to examine things to see if they can actually find out if this preaching is actually going on, God provides a way to keep from being misled. His word tells us we need to do this - Acts 17:11 . . . carefully examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. - - - - God wants us to examine His word of truth and gain accurate knowledge - 1 Timothy 2:4 – whose (God’s) will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth. - - - - If we examine God's word of truth carefully, with His help, we can discern what is true and what is not true. We can learn how to become completely united with Jesus' followers all over the globe. Since God's word of truth states that they indeed do exist. So, I encourage all to approach the Hearer of prayer - Psalm 65:2 - O Hearer of prayer, to you people of all sorts will come. - - - - Ask Him for His help. Then I urge you to visit the following web site where free Bible lessons are offered online. But ALWAYS examine the Scriptures carefully, to make sure you are indeed getting accurate knowledge.

Only Christian people are Universal, all the others are linked to their heretical tradition of their religion, outside Christian doctrine!
Mary was a young woman, and she was a virgin, she had been betrothed to Joseph, when the angel of the Lord appeared to Mary, he told her that she would give birth to Jesus Christ, the Lord!
Mary accepted God's will and gave birth to Jesus in his virginity!
When Mary joined Joseph, her husband, she had other children, which are written in the Holy Bible, calling them brothers of Jesus.
Now, brothers are one thing, another thing were Jesus' disciples, which, the Catholic Church denies, because it says that Mary was young, and Joseph was an old man with a stick?
In your opinion, what is this nonsense?
Would God have given Mary an old man to look after?
Mary was a young woman, and even Joseph, after the birth of Jesus, was a couple, similar to the others, but with God's blessing, to have chosen Mary, for Jesus!
Here is the Holy Scripture of Matthew, it is clear, it says that Joseph had no relationship with Mary, until she gave birth to Jesus, the Lord, through the Holy Spirit.
All this happened so that what the Lord said through the prophet would be fulfilled:
23 "The virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son,
to which the name Emmanuel will be put."
which translated means "God with us."
24 And Joseph, awake from his sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took his wife with him; 25 And he had no conjugal relations with her until she bare him a son, and called his name Jesus.
In these other biblical passages, the heresies of false religious are cut out, where it is written that Jesus had brothers:
Isn't he the carpenter's son? Isn't that the name of his mother Mary and his brothers, James, Joseph, Simon and Judas?
This biblical passage cuts everyone, it clearly says two things, one verse speaks of brothers, the other verse speaks of Jesus' disciples, they are two things, distinct and separate.
Therefore his brothers said to him, "Leave here and go to Judea, that your disciples may also see the works you do.

So that genuine Christians can distinguish themselves from those who are not genuine Christians.
1Co 11:19 for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized.
As a Christian, I follow the example of Jesus, Peter and Paul of fighting against false teachers who have been influenced by dark powers in the spiritual world.Eph 6:12 We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world.

A scam is more profitable if you run it.l
And there is nothing more important to those who run religion, than money.
Since it is all nonsense, made up to scare money out of folks, it all differs, as different people make up different stuff.
That is transparent, anyone can see how it works, if they only look.

Well, apparently it is because your LORD GOD did not send your saviour. Jesus actually prayed (in John 17:20-23) that all who follow him would be as one, so that the world could see just that, that he was sent by God. As his followers are far from being all as one, the logical conclusion would seem to be that God did not send Jesus.

1 John 4:1
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

There has always been a "My God is better than your God".. The Protestants, the Jews, the Catholics and Muslims all have the same God. Yet they kill each other in His name.
Why do you think atheists exist???

There's a lot more to it than that. The council of Trent puts their personal anathema on anyone that says they are saved by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ without works. But I am saved by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ without works. So the vatican has put their personal anathema on me. Your very superficial understanding of things misses that this is about heaven and hell, not just about the fact that every pope is a false prophet.
