I am a part of the community in Martinsville/Henry County, and I’ve spent many hours watching our local Church of Christ on-air-personalities telling everyone that they are bound for hell if they aren’t a part of their assemblies. They are very good at what they do, and they know their interpretations of the Bible very well. To be honest, it makes very little sense to try and join their on-air conversations if you aren’t well versed in their theology.
Therefore, since I’m not too quick on the draw in verbal confrontation, I decided to start this blog as a way to debate the issues they raise. Anyone is welcome to join in, but remember that we all profess to follow Jesus, and need to treat each other with respect. At the very least, Jesus told us to love our enemies, and pray for those who persecute us (Matthew 5:44), so let’s act that way.
My main purpose is to explore the things they say and how they say it, but I also from time to time come across someone (usually outside this community) who calls themselves Church of Christ, but who has a theology that resonates with me. I’ll link up to those folks, too, on occasion.
