Sure, there may be different versions of Christianity, but which version resonates with Christ's Teachings the most?
Some versions are focused more on the teachings of Paul,
and some versions are focused more on the teachings of The Old Testament,
but which version matches The Teachings of Christ best? His Sermon on The Mount?
They all claim that God is Love, but which version actually changes a person to live through Love rather than saying "it doesn't matter since Jesus died for all sins"?
I'm not even sure if there is such a Christianity, but it's still possible to follow The Teachings of Christ without calling yourself a "Catholic Christian" or "Baptist Christian", etc.
Following The Teachings of Christ, such as "turn the other cheek" and "love your neighbors and your enemies", brings the fruits which it promises to bring - Peace. Loving others allows there to be Peace with others, even with enemies when you choose not to fight back but instead to turn the other cheek and walk away.
