Knowing there are 38,000 Christian denominations answers a few questions but it still doesn't answer how 38,000 Christian denominations can come up with such different translations of the bible and what Christianity is...

Same holds true for all the different "bibles" on the market today. There is only one true Bible - the Holy Bible.

The whole issue with god and man is relationship. A church, doctrine, or pastor will NEVER be a substitute for a relationship with the divine. The reason the gnostics were called heretics buy the so called "holy" catholic church is simply because they taught that experience with god is personal and requires no ritual, intermediary, or church fathers. It was all about POWER AND POLITICS, from Constantine to King Jimmy....keep the power and "god" all in the hands of the rich and the paupers will blindly follow.
No pauper or follower here!
