      Non denominational churches

      A long time friend that I have not heard from since 7th grade, has recently shared with me her religion as a non denominational church attendee.
      She says its very spiritual and that Jesus has many names in many languages just as God has many names in different languages and that regardless of what faith you were brought up we all serve the same God... Spiritually (?)
      Muslims believe in Allah but they have a distorted and Gnostic view of Jesus along with muslim law but they all believe in one monotheistic God. Same with Buddhist and even atheist are welcome. My question is this, have you ever heard of this and what do they teach as through sermon? She says its very spiritual but im only curious as to how?
      Here is a catholic video that agrees with this view from my understanding.

      Hi DHoffman

      Just to let you know I read your OP but havent seen the vid yet.
      I will check it later, if its not too long. I have some views already and I hope to get back to you here, but for now, Im thinking how Gods Word declares and testifies that if a person doesnt have the Son, He doesnt have the Father, either. Christianity ... the Christians God ... is unique and different from every other (claimed) god and religion in the world.
      GBU.

      Unitarian/Universalist, Bahai, post-modern millenia relativism. It's a place where you can believe nothing and everything while saying it's good for yourself and that's all that matters. Narcissism at its finest.

      Ok but I asked a question, actually two.
      Allow me another, does the apostolic pro-priesthood (allowance to advance the church) of Catholic faith agree or disagree with this view? Maybe Catholicism according to the Popes video feels the same on this "universal" and updated criteria of the original apostolic church of Jesus.
      (Not implying that I agree whatsoever)

      I can't think of any traditional church that would agree with your friend. The emergent movement leads mostly to liberalism and post-modern thinking. Solomon says it's meaningless.

      Agreed. I believe that the Son agrees on thy will of the Father in which together both assume the Holy Spirit as the same (or one) Spirit therefore representing one monotheistic spirit of godliness or simply "God". The universal (catholic) however as of now supports an ideal that ALL worldly understanding of God is the same just as ND churches suggest likewise.
      What do you believe is being taught in these one universal God beliefs?

      I watched the video...

      I entirely, completely fail to see what this has to do with non-denom or denominational parishes and thus the topic of this thread.

      I commend Pope Francis for wanted to dialogue and for noting that faith per se is not limited to Catholicism. On the other hand, I see here again where Pope Francis lacks the focus and articulation that his Office requires and this suggests some relativism, etc., which I'm sure he doesn't intend.

      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      He implies we all worship the same God just as non denominational churches do, or at least my friend does.

      This kind of belief seeks to water down the importance of Christ and salvation through him. Jesus didn't claim to be one of many doors to heaven, but the only door. I go to a non denominational church and I can assure you that this is not what is taught or preached at all. Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me." John 14:6.
