    Which Christian Denomination Do You Belong To?

    Which Christian denomination do you belong to or respect the most? Which denomination's teachings do you feel ring most true with you? Are there any denominations who's teachings you consider heretical or misrepresents "true" Christianity?

    The reason I ask is because I am interested in learning more about Christianity since I've neglected to ever go in depth with it and it is part of my ancestral culture. On the other hand I've looked deeply into Eastern mysticism, Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta, Taoism, Sufism, and esoteric teachings of the West such as Hermeticism, Kabbalah, Neoplatonism, Gnosticism, Pythagoreanism, and later esoteric teachings such as Theosophy and Gurdjieff's Fourth Way.

    Through that time I've never considered Christianity, I've never fancied the notion that Christ could be God, and I just generally never believed in any of it. I have been watching some debates with Christian Apologetic philosopher William Lane Craig, and I find that he is a skilled debater, raises many good points, and does better at raising my interest of Christianity than anyone thus far.

    Anyway, with so many Christian denominations I find it difficult to penetrate into which one I would agree with the most. An ideal form of Christianity for me would be one which is mystically inclined, seeking direct experience of God, has the best church music (like Gregorian Chant, or something like Allegri's Miserere Mei Deus) and is steeped in ancient tradition.

    No, I haven't really. I've read about Germanic mythology, and I've read mystical interpretations of Germanic mythology, but I am not really familiar with Asatru. I could be wrong, but I've always thought that the true religion of the Germanic people was lost in the river of time and that only fragments, usually from foreign sources or from a much later time period, survived. From this I always thought that Asatru used today was more of a modern concoction in the guise of a Germanic religion.

    I could be totally wrong, if there really are details of what the ancient Germanics believed/practice, and any mystical cult they had, I would be glad to read about it.

    I'm a Lutheran and very proud of that. I like Lutheranism best because it was the first protestant denomination and because it is German in origan. Martin Luther was a brilliant man with a love of bear and swearing. I hear he also had a hot temper.
    As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice - Adolf Hitler
