Campbell would not be welcome in most coc today. Especially where you come from. In better news, the transition to grace here is going extremely well. Most are very receptive to it. Not towing the party line is a nice burden to have off of the back.
Making up things as you go always makes one feel better. Make everything fit to your own belief.

Don't worry, your kids and grand kids will morph that too.

You spent 25 years in a man made group with the nerve to call itself the Church of Christ created by a former Baptist who even made his own version of the New Testament with left out and changed words. Now you are in another man made "Bible Church."
Some of us prefer the real thing that's 2,000 years old.
Are you denying that you spent years in the same church?

Were you deceived and now your blind eyes are now open.

I would say you are a pot calling the kettle black, is the best you can communicate?

I attended the CofC from earliest childhood through my late teenage years because of my parents. I was never stupid enough to join it although my sister did. Looks like you freely participated in the CofC as an adult...big damn difference wouldn't you say? Today my sister, now 60, would not set foot in a CofC or any church for that matter. I was baptized and confirmed as a Roman Catholic in my late 20's. I had finally found the authentic, historic Church of Christ and there remains to this day absolutely no doubt in my mind this is true.

Truth.

40,000 and growing daily. Protestantism morphism right before our eyes.

You for example. Baptist, COC, Bible Church, and others? And next the closest Protestant Church to your house.

All low end Prots too. Why don't you at least try a high end at least once.

BTW: Which one that you have tried has the fullness of the Truth?

I really look up to you Catholics because you express such wisdom in everything you say. Great post.

If there had been no Alexander Campbell, there would not be any Church of Christ today.

That is a fact.

Churches of Christ that we are discussing did not exist until early 1800s.

The Churches of Christ that we discuss here have Alexander Campbell as their founder as much as Methodists have Wesley and the Baptists have Smyth.

After much consideration, I agree with Mike. Protestantism as we have known it is dead. One day, perhaps in our lifetimes, it shall disappear. I do believe that eventually most of the original mainline protesters will migrate back to Rome; while the low end protesters of the protestants will move more closely together.

I can see one gigantic evangelical movement taking place where pentecostals and all shall join in. Old denominational lines will cease to exist.

More "have it your way religion" will pop up. Then the evangelical movement will be in between everything is ok, to actually having to decide if universalism is the way to go. Change is coming, and protestantism is finished.

It happpens everyday. Poorly catechized Catholics wanting the freedom to believe anything they want without guilt.

They are still Catholic and they can't claim invincible ignorance. They are in a bad situation. On the good side, they are just one confession away from coming home.

Most do, especially near death.

Do you believe the exact things your Grandparents did. I doubt it.

That what SS creates.

Why would your grandkids believe what you believe?

Hey, I agree. If you can't get the catholic followers to study and believe the catechism and deny the scripture, they will eventually leave because they will soon see that they are following man not God.

This recent convert to our bible church was first catholic, then Lutheran and now a member of the bible church. We have new members coming from lots of different denominations. I would say that we are more closely identified with Baptist and Methodist. Years ago when we first visited there we found many church of christ people that we used to go to church with. That was a surprise. In fact my last coc preacher showed up one sunday. I went over to shake his hand and was very embarrassed.

I don't think anyone should have been embarrassed. Nothing wrong with finding freedom.

Yep all y'all have to do is bang on those drums and cowbells and they come running. And if they don't hear something they like one Sunday y'all can make something else up for them for the next Sunday with a little dab of this and a little dab of that.

You are mostly identified with the latest version of Protestantism. Campbell used the name Church of Christ as a marketing tool.

Lets guess what your Church uses as a marketing tool. Wait. I know.

Bible.

We only follow the Bible. A Catholic Book. Bizarre when you think about it.

Or we could sit in a drab old cathedral and watch all the the show as they play Pete and re-Pete like a herd of cattle. The church is not the building, it's not the name, not the organ nor the pope or the priest or the alter boys- it's the people of God.
