Thanks to Randy for pointing out graceconversation.com. This is a conversation that will be held between several different men from the churches of Christ – dealing with different issues, it seems. Here is what Jay Guin has to say about it.
The conversation will begin with a statement of agreed principles. Phil and Greg will then take up the question of when does a Christian lose his soul — the apostasy question. Closely related, of course, is the question of fellowship.
You can read more about the plans for the site and about the participants here.
Also, when I was reading about this new conversation, I was referenced to another website, In Search of the Lord’s Way. I haven’t had time to really look through the site, but it seems to be a website for a church of Christ TV broadcast (sound familiar?) where the hosts spend most of their time talking about what they believe, rather than why everyone else is wrong (doesn’t sound familiar).
I don’t think they sneak video cameras into other churches in an attempt to trap other Christians (although they probably also don’t think anyone is a Christian outside churches with the name “church of Christ” on the sign – would need to watch a few videos to see).
While I disagree with some of their theology, I am totally in favor of their methodology. Seems much more Christ-like than what we get around these parts.
Anyway, might be worth a gander.
