I'd be interested to get some thoughts and ideas on this. I'm a filmmaker and I'm considering starting work on a documentary about the every increasing splintering of Christianity into various denominations. I believe at present there's something in the area of 14,000. I find this interesting because Jesus prayed that the church would be one and further, on the basis of 1 Corinthians 1:10-17 which reads as follows: I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. My brothers, some from Chloe's household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul"; another, "I follow Apollos"; another, "I follow Cephas"; still another, "I follow Christ." Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul? I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, so no one can say that you were baptized into my name. (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don't remember if I baptized anyone else.) For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. To apply this to a modern parallel, this verse seems to implore Christians not to follow Luther or Wesley or even the Pope, but Christ alone. This would be controversial to be sure, but it really intrigues me. Where does denominational pride end and Christianity begin? What if anything could be done to reverse the trend? Could protestants, catholics and the orthodox church someday be reconciled with one another? Is anyone actively working to this end? These are the sorts of questions I have in mind. It's difficult to speak to the scale of the documentary because that would depend on what sort of access I could get, but I would like to go all over the spectrum from Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant leaders all the way down (way down) to the Westboro Baptist Church. I want to see what fuels their hate and how they reconcile it with what Christianity actually teaches. What do you think? Any ideas?
