  • Weaknesses of the Churches of Christ: Anti-denominationalism

    Second, the Churches of Christ have accidentally established this identity of a “nondenominational denomination” because of its high priority on separating itself from denominations. Somewhere along the line the focus was deflected from being nondenominational Christians to being anti-denominational Christians.  Many people in the Churches of Christ have become prejudiced. They have already made up […]

  • Weaknesses of the Churches of Christ: Tradition

    I believe the Churches of Christ are the best place to be for any Christian. But, the Churches of Christ are an amazing group but like any group of people they have flaws. We must continue in our persistent desire for truth and we must continue in our pursuit to be part of the church […]

  • Are The Churches of Christ A Denomination?

    Denominationalism and Denominations The concept of denominationalism is the belief that all these different denominations are different parts of God’s church. Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, and all denominations are parts of the larger church and all of them are saved. This is not true. Because 1) the body of Christ is one and there should be […]

  • The Church of Christ

    The group that calls itself the Churches of Christ is a little bit of an enigma.  Will Rogers once said, “I belong to no organized party. I am a Democrat.” I am not afraid of being called a Republican because I so often vote for Republican candidates and I agree a lot with Republican positions. […]

  • IF I HAD TO BOW TO AN IDOL, IT WOULD BE THE SUN: NO OTHER CREATED OBJECT TELLS US MORE ABOUT THE REAL GOD

It’s so familiar that we no longer consider the physical realities of it. Those realities are some of the most gruesome ever known. Here’s how crucifixion actually kills people. Crucifixion stopped being a regular […]

  • Being Led By The Holy Spirit

    Throughout history God has led people to do certain things or to go to certain places. The Father led Noah to build the ark (Heb. 11:7), led Abraham out of Ur (Gen. 12:1; Heb. 11:8,9), led Israel out of Egypt (Deut. 8:15; 29:5; Psa. 77:20), etc. When Christ was on the earth he led his disciples […]
