The History of

DENOMINATIONS

and their founders.

 

Actually instead of FOUNDERS,

The Apostle Paul takes the liberty to call them by their proper reference,

SAVAGE WOLVES.

Acts 20:29
I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away followers of their own.

 

But I'm sure he was only speaking about those False Teachers who KNEW / KNOW in their hearts that they're looking for a following more than they're willing to embrace the Truth.  A couple of the founders below, and our sympathy goes to them, have made actual historical quotes that they did not want their name to be attached to a  'Denomination'  but against their will, people continued to uphold them rather than the Bible.  Most of the others however I'm sure enjoyed the fleeting financial gain and notoriety that accompanied their desire for power.

 

These founders and dates have been researched to the best of our ability, and so (slow down now) if you think we've made a mistake, just email us and let us know,

we can fix things up,

 BUT PLEASE !

Please don't write us and try to convince us that any of them are

NOT

MAN MADE Denominations

as opposed to the one church that JESUS came to build, defined by the one Doctrine of His NEW Covenant.

(The ONE Doctrine that cannot be proven false by God's own Word)
