Internet? You're funny old timer. Yes there are thousand of coc in the south. There are many in the midwest, mid-atlantic, etc. BUT- the further north you go, the Daniel Sommer non-instrumental type thin out dramatically. Kentucky northward the coc is mainly instrumental. I live in the cradle of "restoration territory" old timer. Cane Ridge, Raccoon John Smith, relatives of Alexander Campbell, you name it.<quoted text>
The more you claim to know about church of Christ the more ignorance you show. YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT CHURCH OF CHRIST -OTHER THAN THAT WHAT YOU CAN FIND ON THE INTERNET.
All through the south - there are thousands & thousands of churches of Christ. Missouri & many mid-west states are full of churches of Christ.
Why don't you give it a rest - YOU DON'T KNOW DIDDLY SQUAT ABOUT THE LORD'S CHURCH...
Which is a shame and very saddening...
Older and wiser, I have preached in both instrumental and non-instrumental churches of Christ. Currently I preach in a non-instrumental church. I've been in the middle of every kind of battle the coc divides itself with. The congregation I serve has a mix of non-instrumental and instrumental believers. And they love each other and don't make music a divisive issue.
You, on the other hand, are definitely a hardline coc coming from the split at Sand Creek. Daniel Sommer the key man in that.
