What is the Church of Christ pattern???Randy has been asking for the particulars and parameters of this elusive pattern we hear so much about, but he has never yet actually had anyone provide it.
Randy tells me that he’s gotten emails stating there is a pattern, but nobody seems to want to share the specifics. We read that Jesus is our pattern and all in the church of Christ will agree, but most go beyond this -to a pattern of worship, with rules and laws that must be obeyed to remain in fellowship.
We aren’t suggesting worship be treated lightly, nor that “anything goes” in worship. But, what we see is people making laws from examples, inferences, and their interpretations, binding them upon people to the point that the church of Christ is full of sects and division, and this pattern is never the same across the board.
More than likely, Johnny Robertson, Norm Fields and James Oldfield will maintain their boycott of our blog. However, let’s see if any other Church of Christ folks will provide the particulars of this elusive pattern.
