Generally, on Tuesday or Wednesday mornings, I try to go walk the Labyrinth at a local church.  It is in a beautiful, treed setting so quiet and peaceful.  So easy to get into my own head.   I was thinking about commonalities that various things inside the different denominations have and I wondered, with so much in common why do we have such large spaces between each other in accepting beliefs.  Of course, this led my mind down the rabbit hole.   It occurred to me; Jesus was a reformer.  His original intent was to reform the Church of his people.  To take it back in some areas close to Moses and David and progressive in other areas.  Jesus did not intend to start a whole new religion.  The same can be said for Luther.  He did not intend to break away from the Catholics.  No, he wanted them to return to the roots of the belief in Christ and God and away from the Papacy.  He did not have an actual issue with the existence of the Papacy, but at that time in history, the Bishop of Rome was more powerful on Earth than Christ or God.  He felt that was wrong.  Calvin did not intend for a breakaway religion from Lutherís breakaway, but he saw issues in the dogma and doctrine that had drifted from what Lutheran had intended.  There is a reoccurring process here. 
Based on what I am seeing we are at an epoch again where someone will come forward and led us into a new direction in Christianity.  The problem I have is that it is going to be two people or groups and in two different directions.  This is dangerous for Christianityís survival.  I hope and pray I am wrong.

Just a humble opinion and observation
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
