Having many doctrines is not necessarily a bad thing, e.g. The divinity of Christ is a doctrine, the Trinity is another doctrine, Biblical inerrancy is another doctrine. Doctrines are official Church teachings, and the Church has many teachings, hence many doctrines, all are true. The problem lies when doctrines start to get questioned, and instead of resolving the doubts, people leave the Church and start their own. A group of people started to question the divinity of Christ, and instead of dialogue and debates, they choose to leave the Church and start their own, teaching that Christ is not God. (INC, Jehovah's witness, Mormons) Now we have churches that teach Jesus is God and churches that teach the opposite.
