I'm just curious. My mom is a non-denom Christian. She's pretty much by-the-book when it comes to Christianity, except she believes that Jesus was married and so on and so forth. She thinks my grandparents (her parents) are a little cuckoo because they're primitive Baptists (dress up for church, no piano or other instruments).
So do you accept the views of other denominations, or do you think they're 'wrong' for not believing exactly what you do?
(I personally think it's weird that someone could say someone else of THEIR religion is wrong, but whatever.)

I align most with liberal Christians and Quakers, but dislike being boxed in by a specific religion. I personally think that every person has a different path to the truth so I have no problem with denominations.
Regarding Jesus being married, I saw that on the Da Vinci Code and have come to the conclusion that it really doesn't change much for me. His words are powerful regardless, and he has opened up a part of me that I never knew existed.

As for what I think of other denominations, I do think our church comes closest to the truth as far as the bible is concerned, but that's just normal. If I didn't think that I would go somewhere else.
I agree with this. I also think that most denominations of Christianity have fundamental elements of truth about who Jesus is and about the nature of God that should be adhered to, no matter what differences of interpretation may arise Biblically.
