Lawyers go back 1000 years. Common lawyers were always hostile to religious forms
of law.
Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamian and Middle East operated on the basis of bureaucracy

Denomination older or well-established form of government that existed in ..?
Anglicanism came close to ecclesia about 100 years ago because common lawyers

oMethodists
oThe United Church
oHindus
oMuslims

NA/United church is an excellent place to study the change from sect into religion
Denominations are more sedate and less hostile to the world we live in
Sects see world as a dangerous place to live in
oStay away from the outsiders
Cults
Cults are difficult to define
Tons of denomination and cults in North America
They play new forms of worship
They are deviant (nothing negative implied)
oStand outside of denominations which tends to be more often led by
charismatic leaders
