Explain at least three historical and/or doctrinal reasons why there are so many divisions / denominations in the Christian religion.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

There are 3 main reasons that try to explain this and these are;

1. Denominational disagreements; due to individual selfishness and own interests, they disagree and this results in individuals coming up with other churches.

2. Denominational differences; another reason for the existence of so many churches is disparity in personality, passions, and talents. Consider individuals for a moment. Some people connect with God best through the exercise of their minds or while in nature. Others experience spirituality through creative or artistic expression. Still others feel a sacred or divine connection when they serve others or help those who are hurting. 

3. Denominational unity; it should be pointed out that a lack of uniformity among Christian denominations does not necessarily imply a lack of unity. Regardless of church, denomination, culture, or geographical location, there are a few central tenets that unite virtually all Christians.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
