The question is looking for Christologies apart from Trinitarianism.

@FMS That question is already answered elsewhere on the site.

comment What would be the consequences for refusing confirmation in the Anglican Church?
Are you asking this because it reflects your personal situation?

comment Are there any denominations that baptize ONLY in the Name of Jesus?
To answer the question, most denominations do not believe you have to be baptized to be a Christian. Therefore even if you have been invalidly baptized, you can still be a Chrsitian. They would probably require a rebaptism for someone baptized in Jesus name only to be admitted to their church (assuming they knew).

I assumed that the questioner meant 'would people who use a Trinitarian formula consider them Christians', which is factual. I've edited the question to reflect this. Please revert if you didn't mean that.

comment How could Jesus be born during the reign of Herod, and when Quirinius was governor of Syria, if those periods were not contemporary?
It's interesting that when two sources disagree, and one of them is Biblical, there is always a huge cry of "that proves the Bible must be wrong".

@gideonmarx Do you have any references to back up your definition of "Just War"? References for the definition I use are the Wikipedia article, the BBC Catholic Answers, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and hundreds of others. Please join me in this chat room if you want to continue.

@gideonmarx Just War is not just 'no mistakes' (especially since 'no mistakes' is impossible anyway). Please read some article on Just War. For example: killing tens of millions of people to remove a minor threat would not be a Just War, irrespective of whether it was carried out without mistakes. That's the normal definition of Just War.

comment When did guitar led worship music become accepted?
I believe the 'mega-churches' (and others with a focus on outreach) adopted modern instruments not to differentiate themselves, but because the wanted their music to be accessible and understandable to the unchurched.
