That is what I said. Since 382 AD we have the had the Bible and it was determined by the CC, the whole Bible is the inspired and inerrant written word of God. Your verse still say the Bible is profitable for teaching. It does not say the Bible only is profitable for teaching. The Church is the pillar of Truth. That is how the Bible was created.
As for as the Candlestick, that was invented in 1500s when Father Martin Luther removed 7 books of the OT that he knew wouldn't agree with his personal beliefs. He tried to get rid of James too, but his buddies knew they would get push back. The real Bible as canonized by CC, had 73, no candlestick analogy was possible for 1500 years.
The 3 legged stool is an analogy, not a doctrinal statement.b
Completely asinine.

Church of Christ is a church of hypocrites. So is every other church since Jesus ascended. There is no perfect church. There is only imperfect churches of imperfect people worshiping a perfect God.

So all churches and all the saints claimed by God are hypocrites? This blanket statement does not fit what the bible teaches about the Saints of God ie the christian. Want to clarify?

Yeshua said God is to be our teacher, and that He is our Teacher. Read the gospel accounts, especially John. Jesus is the Prophet all His Churches follow and obey and trust in His every word.

Judge by His words who are obvious imposters and hypocrites.

Wow, first Idaho, now Austin. Hope you're on a western vacation and enjoying yourself. I must now repent for jealousy and covetousness ;)

Agree with the point btw. That should make things simple, but it won't.

I will say there is a perfect church with imperfect people. Jesus created that Church and specifically said it would not fail

Until I am able to resolve this, I think it may be best I pull away from this altogether. It’s no wonder that former coc preachers turn atheist. Either God wants unity or He allows disunity. If He allows for disunity, it means all who come to Jesus are saved regardless of their doctrinal flaws/short comings.
How can I tell someone they aren’t saved because they “misunderstood” the purpose of baptism, then turn around and allow others to have doctrinal differences over MDR and others things. If God accepts the inconsistencies of some doctrines, He also will allow for misunderstandings over other doctrines like baptism. If not, why not? Book, Chapter, Verse?
The reason that some in the coc hide their disagreement over doctrine like MDR is because it makes them look like those “awful denominational churches”. It’s hard to condemn others to hell for doctrinal disunity when you are guilty of the same thing. So, instead of dealing with it, it often is swept under the rug of hypocrisy.
If the coc can disagree over MDR, and still be saved, then God obviously will accept doctrinal error of others. This is why the coc bury their doctrinal disagreements under the rug of hypocrisy. They know once they come out and admit they also disagree over doctrine, it opens the door for them awful denominational churches.
If God allows some doctrinal error, where does God stop? How far will God go? If we take this to its logical conclusion, it allows for universalism.
Although I believe that the church of Christ are closer to the truth of Scripture- being close doesn’t count. If some error is allowed, where do we draw the line - Book, Chapter, Verse? If ANY error is allowed, it obviously means God accepts people while holding error. If so, this opens the door to EVERY denomination. After all, every single group, including the coc, lack doctrinal perfection.
It’s no wonder Seeking Wanderer threw in the towel and others I know who have left the “church”. They see the issues, and honestly desire to balance them in light of Scripture; yet, they cannot do so without opening the door for universalism.
The Church of Christ, every movement and sect, is no good. All of them are unclean, legalistic, hypocritical, condemning, and ego-centric minded entities. I am a former member of a COC church which was affiliated with the Boston Movement (ICOC) International Church of Christ.
I became born again and I only remained with the movement for 7 months and I left. So in their eyes I'm Judas Iscariot. The whole thing is a joke.
But, please JesusCreed, do not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Just because the CoC or any other church did a HORRIBLE job representing Christ does not mean He is not real. He is. Ever since I left CoC, I became so enthralled with His love. Read the Gospel of John and Galatians as well as Colossians. Jesus wants a relationship with you and me, not to burden you with rules and religion. Paul's letter to the Romans says that God's grace is a gift apart from works. I'll be praying for you.

Why don' t you come home. The Church created by Jesus has been in existence since Pentecost for 2000. Historical documents prove that has been only 1 Church for last 2000 years.

Describe your relationship with Jesus. Does he abide and you and you in him? There is only one way for that to happen.

Who taught you how to have a personal relationship with him. One cannot understand scripture unless you are taught. Who taught you?

I recall the poster Jesus Creed on a previous thread here on Topix defending Johnny Robertson. This defense was in reference to Johnny Robertson accusing under-aged girls dancing in ballerina outfits at the First Christian Church in Kernersville NC of showing their panties and themselves to the men. Johnny Robertson went as far as to accuse them of showing as much as in such as, "full frontal crotch shots, showing panties, themselves to men, as much as in kiddie porn shops and added a few giggles while taking to Roark on the phone. That Thread was named "Thus Sayeth Johnny Robertson", I can no longer find that thread and it seems it has be removed by someone for some reason????

The poster Jesus Creed comment to poster Whitman that the comment about "innocent children and little girls was really distasteful. and he found it distrubing. He said he had seen the show where Johnny discussed the nature of the tape and Johnny Robertson had only done it to demonstrate how perverted some churches had become. According to the comments Jesus Creed thought the comments a poster was putting on Topix was distasteful which was Johnny Robertson's own words describing children dancing but evidently he thought it was OK for Johnny Robertson to describe children the way he did and that was not distasteful??????

Poster Jesus Creed went on to post saying/suggesting (referring to Johnny Robertson) that he would not show the video because if he (Johnny Robertson) showed it he could or would be "slammed" for presenting soft porn and if he didn't show it he would be accused of lying. He said it was a catch 22. This comment was very confusing that Johnny Robertson had already shown the girls on TV and put big blue circles on their private areas as if they were showing something which they were not and made all the horrible accusations against them. This comment made you wonder if Johnny Robertson showed the video again and if as Jesus Creed said he may or could be arrested for showing soft porn and since he had already broadcast them and made horrible accusations against them why wasn't he arrested for soft porn at that time.

Charles Roark of WGSR TV announced Johnny Robertson had a controversial show coming up that night on Channel 18 and he then phoned Johnny Robertson.
Breaking News was on the screen.
Johnny Robertson told Roark they were going to have a hard time showing the video because it was so graphic and when he played it in Martinsville that night he was going to have pictures from the video and then he'd have a blank out so that you can't actually see what they saw but it would indicate what was able to be viewed. Johnny said it's an old looking video on purpose so that he wouldn't be liable of letting people see something that's questionable. A couple of clips of the girls were shown during this phone conversation and big blue circles had been placed on their private areas. Johnny told Charles Roark you don't have to be involved on internet porn these days you can go to the church building sit on the front row and you get to see children according to Johnny Robertson you get to see everything you see in some of these kiddy porn shops. Johnny said his question is would this fall in the category of exploiting children when you're showing the audience is below and you have these children exposing their undergarments one of them 11 times in a one-minute segment. Johnny went on to say without cover except for panties giving a clear frontal crotch shot. Johnny told Roark eleven times in one minute you've got a full clear shot of these underage girls and we're talking about she's up on a stage and people are down below you can see them down below and they're looking up and they get to view . Johnny went on to ask what if persons heard that the little boys were going into girls bathroom peeking through and they were seeing them their panties they would have a fit. Johnny said you don't have to go in the girls bathroom anymore not in a Christian church around here. After many other remarks Charles Roark said he guesses the perverts will need to start going to church and laughs and Johnny Robertson said well that would help he thought some of them were going to church and that's what they're going for.
Johnny Robertson broadcast the girls in Reidsville about a week after this. This is the show I saw. I don't know what was shown in Martinsville VA. Each time he showed the girls there were big blue circles on their private areas. Johnny made many of the same remarks made on the phone conversation as he showed video of the girls dancing where HE had placed big blue circles on their private areas as if the girls were showing themselves. There were a few callers on the show that night not many. One lady talked about her shorts, another lady talked about if you look and lust you were sinning another lady talked about her mom always wore a dress and was lady like. While Johnny was playing the video of the girls dancing he said this was the kind of behavior going on in the church where eleven times in one minute these young ladies were on stage above the individuals where they were looking up. Johnny bent and looked up and said not straight like we were looking. Johnny said they were actually seeing eleven times instances of straight on undergarments and he just knew they were really close to actually breaking the obscenity laws in North Carolina. Johnny showed on screen the Obscenity law and he read it.
Johnny Robertson then said our community certainly weighed in on it tonight and said they didn't want to be seeing that out in public they didn't want to be seeing young girls showing their undergarments out in public at the mall or in church or any of these places. Johnny went on to say he was very thankful the community had weighed in tonight in such a positive fashion.(My question here would be how can he get only a few callers 4-5 and claim it is the community?) Johnny ended the show with he hoped someone would call the First Christian Church Kernersville
