You Could Very Well Be a Member of the Church oF Christ if...

If you think "tithing" is wrong, but that you should "give at least 10%"

If you believe Jesus turned water into grape juice!

If you've heard of Jule Miller, but not John Wesley

If you check out Acts 2:38 before buying a new version of the bible, you're
definitely a member of the church of Christ!

If you refuse to accept that you are in a denomination.

If you believe that Acts 20:7 sets a clear pattern for every Sunday, only
Sunday communion.

If you believe that instrumental music in worship will send you to Hell but
that God approves of it in Heaven.

If you attended a college that considers "choreography" and "dance" something entirely different.

If you attended a college that had vastly differering standards of decency concerning sports uniforms and casual clothing.

Or if your local church is named after the street it's located on...

If you think the restoration was a bigger deal than the reformation...

If women can pass a communion tray while seated (and side to side only), but not standing up (or front-to-back)...

If worship is the most somber part of your week...

you just MIGHT be a member of the CoC (...and if you know what CoC stands for...)

It's great to see a blog site hosted by one of the "thinking Christians" who also have a sense of humor.

Absolutely beautiful, Fred.

Lessee...

- If you consider children's bible classes to be an important, divisive point of doctrine.

- If you think "spare the rod and spoil the child" is scripture, and a commandment.

For that matter,

- If you assume "speak where the bible speaks and be silent where the bible is silent" is scriptural.

- If you insist you have no creed, but (see above).

During worship service you have, hauled a two year old to the nursery and spanked her, fed a baby, cleaned out your purse, winked at the song leader, maybe said AMEN (men only of course) laughed, cried, chewed gum, went to the restroom because the sermon was just too boring, sang 12 verses of Just As I Am, last one softly, but never, ever clapped.
