    Christians, Do You Accept Other Christian Denominations from Yours?

    If you're Catholic,
    do you accept the Protestant or Orthodox?

    If you're Protestant,
    do you accept the Catholic or Orthodox?

    If you're Orthodox,
    do you accept the Catholic or Protestant?

    Excuse if I forgot some other denominations.

    It would seem that Catholic and Orthodox would think that protestant are basically upstarts.
    Protestants would most likely see Orthodox as more old and legalistic.
    But reality is Protestant is not really a denomination, it is more of a general designator, and you could call Baptist a Protestant, or even Pentecostals Protestants. Infact any Christian Denomination that is not Catholic would be Protestant.

    Here in the US I would say Christians pretty much tow the same line. That is why they are the one group that can take an election without any support form other minorities.

    Also why if given a legitimate electoral system, democrats rarely win elections in the US. Only in situations were the general christian populace is disillusioned or the vote is divided can democrats actually win. Example would be Obama who won against very weak Republican who did not support the base of the party.

    As an Orthodox, I accept Roman Catholics and Protestants as Christians, but such ultimate decisions are way above my job description

    I accept them as Christians and as brethren, but it's beyond me how their religious choice and belief will affect their afterlives. Anyway in my view now more than ever Christians would be better off if they left the squabbles behind, because the Islam is about to take over Europe, and we can't be fighting amonst ourselves while it's about to happen.

    I have no problem with other Christian denominations(save ones with liberal views on homosexuality). Generally, I view other denominations as my equals on a religious level, unless someone declares that Catholics aren't Christians and going to hell(which has happened a few times).

    That's an interesting view for a Catholic,
    wasn't it Catholic who believe there is no salvation outside their church?
    So technically that anyone non-Catholic will end up in Hell?

    Denominations are irrelevant and useless

    Jesus Christ himself did not want to be praised in churches of any denomination whatsoever, because a church as a sensually perceivable community is the very embodiment of carnality Jesus Christ wants humanity to overcome. His life gave the example how to perform this task.

    The question to which church someone belongs is irrelevant from a purely religious point of view. A human being should not belong to any at all and seek god in himself: That's the path of the mystic; it is the hardest yet the only one. Per aspera ad astra.

    Previously, yes.
    The doctrine of the Catholic Church has changed a bit since the Vatican II council(which was in the 70's) and the Dominus Iesus which was written by the current Pope Benedict XVI in 2000.

    We now view that Jesus created only a single Church(which was built upon Peter, whom was the first Pope), which has now split into the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church.
    We view that other Christian denominations suffer from 'defects'. Which we view are obstacles to salvation, though do not make it impossible for them to receive Heaven.

    For other religions though, we view that they are gravely deficient, making it near impossible for say, a Buddhist, to go to Heaven.

    I believe that individual Roman Catholics can be Christians whilst the Roman Catholic Church is not a true church (same thing for Orthodox). Being a historicist regarding eschatology, I believe that the Pope is the Antichrist. The majority of Historicists also identify the symbols of the smoke rising from the Abyss and the invasion of locusts in the Book of Revelation as descriptions of the rise and spread of Islam.

    I met this one family in my denomination where the father asked his 2 year-old daughter who the "naughty man" is. "The Pope," she would respond.

    I would say that the post-schism Roman Church (and the uniates) are not true Churches, but are in schism from the Church. Same thing for Protestants (and the modern 'inclusive' ones are also heretical). Protestantism was the natural response to Papism, but both are in error.
