John Adams on Christian Sectarianism

“The multitude and diversity of them [Christian sects], you will say,
is our security against them all.”
–President John Adams

One benefit of diversity is the avoidance of rigid certainty, which often leads to power in the wrong hands and tyranny. Would Christianity be better off with a unified, one dominant denomination?

“for  there must be factions among you in order  that those who are genuine among you may be recognized.”
–Apostle Paul
