The term Christian, generally refers to all who claim to believe in Jesus
Different denominations within a basic group agree on core matters of doctrine. The Franciscans would have to agree with the Dominicans, for both to be catholic. For that matter, the Dominicans would have thrown the Franciscans into the fire during the Inquisition, had they not been close enough to be Catholics.
But there is no way that Protestants consider that Catholics will go to heaven ― the big condo in the sky. Similarly, most protestant groups condemn most of the other protestant denominations as well.
Until recently, the Catholics condemned EVERYONE. Sometimes even each other. Christianity, almost all forms of it, is all ABOUT condemnation, eternal hellfire and all sorts of eternal punishment garbage.
Catholics constitute the ONLY religion ― besides Mormonism ― that felt it necessary to lie and cover up about its own beliefs. No other religion would actually forbid its members to read its own holy books! Catholic Christianity alone felt this was necessary. Whereas Mormonism forbids its members to read, watch, discuss or study anything that has not been certified by the Mormon Correlation Committee ― a function under the Mormon Church's First Presidency.
People should stop and consider the reasons for the cover-ups.
The Mormons say that they are the only true church 1 and all the other churches are false 2 because Jesus and angels spoke to their leader. Today Mormons forbid their members from reading any religious book that is not personally approved by their church leadership via a special process called “correlation.”
The Roman Catholic Church says about all the other churches of Christendom they are in error; are divided on questions of doctrine; are given over to leaders who are not true shepherds; and doomed to damnation as heretics!
The Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist and other Protestant churches say the Roman Catholic Church is pagan; idolatrous; anti-scripture; in error; or of satanic origin!
Baptists say that the “infant sprinklers,” they have no remission of sins, and are “damned!”
Seventh Day Adventists say the Sunday consecrators have changed the true Sabbath for the pagan “day of the Sun” and are therefore condemned!
The Sunday keeping churches say about the Adventists that it was founded by a false prophetess (Mrs. White) and that she and her followers are “damned”!
The Unitarians say the followers of the trinity are idol worshippers; that the trinity is a pagan, idolatrous concept, taken over from other religions.
Trinitarians say the Unitarians are condemned by the literal teachings of the “New testament” because they do not take the ‘new testament’ literally.
Jehovah’s Witness’ claim that all other churches and sects are apostates; demonic; agents of Babylon―Rome and Satan etc.!
Other churches say “Jehovah”s Witnesses” movement was founded by false prophets (Russel and Rutherford); that it mistranslates and misinterprets scripture just to prove its own erroneous doctrines!
The Christadelphians proclaim that all other Christians are in error: that they do not understand the true meaning of the “Bible”; they believe in fallacy; and are not “true believers”!
The Pentecostal groups say all other churches are spiritually dead!
Other churches say the “Pentecostals” are possessed by “lying spirits” and are under the influence of mass hysteria!
All these churches have one thing in common. They all believe in the pagan dead man-god―Jesus the Christ. However, they spilt over disagreements concerning questions like:
· Was Jesus’ divine and human nature “separate” or “blended;”
· Was Jesus equal with a god “father” or inferior to him;
· Was the holy spirit equal to the god “father” and the “son” or merely a created force; and
· Other similar absurdities whose origin is the sick imagination of corrupt theologians.

But the question still remains: does a self-negating, divided Christianity, with its horror-story theology of a dead man-god “savior.” have any valid message for mankind?
The answer is, NO!
"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon that the word of god. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and for my own part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel." -Thomas Paine (1737-1809 )

2. Book of Mormon refers to the Catholic Church: “it came to pass that I beheld this great and abominable church; and I saw the devil that he was the founder of it.” (1 Nephi 13:6)
