On this forum people like to complain about the number of Protestant Denominations. And also about how protestants change churches.
Firstly I have heard on this forums the following estimates:
10’s of thousands
100’s of thousands
and one 60,000 (He admitted he exaggerated for effect.)
I’d like to discuss where people are getting these figures as they appear they are getting a bit out of hand.
Secondly, all this talk about Protestants cavalierly changing churches. Most of these so called 100’s of thousands (or however many) of Churches are very similar, so much similar that My praying about switching from from my non-denominational type church to the Assembly of God really wouldn’t be a whole lot different than any Catholic who changed Parishes. I have found two things in all of their teachings that disagree with what I believe is the truth, this is why I hesitate. And Catholics DO change parishes. However If I suddenly decided to go from where I am to be a Calvinist Baptist… that would be an extreme conversion and a BIG deal. I simply wouldn’t do it anymore that Catholics would switch from their parish to the same Baptist Church.
