This detailed chart presents a generalized timeline of when various religions split off from God's Word. It also depicts the church splits since the apostolic age and denominational breakdown since the Reformation. This powerful poster puts religions, cults, and church variations into one fascinating reference.
There are only two religions in the world: God's and not God's. If it doesn't come from God, then one way or another it comes through the mind of man (including demonic/satanic). As you can see, man's religion is broken into many subcategories but they are based on man's ideas superseding God and His Word. When man's ideas are elevated to compete with God's Word, even the church suffers with divisions. The key is for God's Word to be the ultimate authority in all things. Then, we are thinking God's thoughts after Him.
