I felt like this was an interesting article dealing with the divisions that exist in the Church of Christ over the issue of mechanical instruments in worship. I am also somewhat relieved to see that there are folks who call themselves Churches of Christ who are less judgmental, condemning, and dogmatic than our local TV folks. That’s a relief.
Max Lucado is a pastor of a Church of Christ assembly, too, I recently found out. I wonder what the local TV folks think about him? Probably not much.
That’s one of the big beefs I have with Norm, James and Johnnie – this stubborn sticking to the “my way or the highway” doctrine. If you don’t check off the exact same boxes they are checking off, you are in sin and bound for hell. The idea of interpretation is meaningless, as their interpretations are the only correct ones.
I do appreciate, however, their willingness to discuss the issues, even if they do sometimes take a while to answer. 😉
