Music for one. Other than that...

They have the same number of hypocrites and think they are the only one's going to heaven.

Salvation by grace-Baptist. Salvation by works and baptism-Church of Christ

Btw wal-mart is full of hypocrites too but we all go there. The only ones that are going to heaven are those that have accepted Christ as their Savior..regardless of church affiliation.

not much they both want your tithe money and will be happy to let you live and do anything you want as long as you show up and put money in their tithe plate

WRONG! I haven't been in Walmart in damn near a year now.

I forgot about the money aspect. A church is a wonderful business opportunity. No taxes and you can tell people to give 10% or else they'll burn!

lol well wherever you go Bob, they are there.

I know of no church that says give you tithe (10%) or you'll burn. Churches have expenses too. They depend on that money to pay electric bills, benelovence fund to help others. Some run vans or busses, etc.

What does that mean?
It seems that COC don't focus on grace...it seems to be works. Just my observations.

Oh come on there are many more differences that grace verses works and if you had a clue you would know that your statement above is ridiculous. It would be best to just leave everyones religious beliefs ALONE. Concentrate on yourself and what makes you a good person and go with it and let everyone else do the same. There is nothing wrong with COC and nothing wrong any of the many Baptists churchs ..they all believe in GOD and are full of people screwing up everyday but trying for the most part to do good. No one is perfect, no religion is perfect and no one person already has there ticket stamped to heavens gates. And if you think differently then SHOW ME YOUR TICKET.

Church of Christ believes Baptism for remission/forgiveness of sins, and is required to be a Christian...Most of us don't believe we are the only ones going to heaven....I am sure their are old school COC and Baptist that believes their church is the only one! Church of Christ does not have music in the church building (but that is not for me to decide it is up to God) We also take the Lords Supper every Sunday as Jesus told us to do.

As far as why I worship as COC it is because it is what (((( I )))))) think is closest to MY understanding of the Bible. I know many Christian that are Baptist, Pentecostal, and I pray that God's forgiveness is great enough to cover all of our failures, because I doubt any of us have it just right.

Thanks :) I have so many sins (OMG and I am Church of Christ!) that it is not up to me to decide who makes it to heaven or not....so I will leave it up to God to make that decision. I do believe there are things that are required of you as a true Christian....alot of people say they are Christians, but their lives do not reflect it...I just pray when people look at me they know I am TRYING....I will never be perfect, but Christ's forgiveness stops, when I stop trying.

I would think those who lock themselves into organized religion have plenty of issues. Thanks for the prayers though.:D

I don't see why "organized" religions is singled out so much. It doesn't have to be organized to be a load of bulls#@t.
