Read my words again.

I did.  I never said Jesus was unloving.

My words from before... I said that the whole issue, and others like it, remind me of Jesus' words.

I was raised in the non-Sunday School Church of Christ, and since the "one cup" people are also non-class, this discussion got me thinking about all the nice and truly good people I used to go to church with.  Some of these good people have been dead twenty years or so, but I can remember them really well.

It is really sad, looking back, that they didn't win out.

What do you mean "win out" Barry?   ???
For He (Jesus) whom God has sent utters the words of God for He gives the Spirit without measure.  John 3:34

Come near to God and He will come near to you. James 4:8

For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need. Philippians 4:13

I mean that they are the ones dying out and not the other Church of Christ types.

So you mean to tell me you think it is a race for "winning out" for the people?

Ya got it all wrong Barry. Most of us are looking for Jesus, and wherever it leads us, so be it. We are trying to see Him more clearly, not what we want, but what He wants.

When we take our eyes off of Him, is when we "die out", not when we keep our eyes on ourselves or each other.

Blessings Barry,

For their sakes, I hope that their faith in Jesus Christ "won out" in the end.

Hopefully their faith was in Jesus and not a doctrinal position.

Based on attendance records, it appears a good percentage of our congregation is of the non-Sunday School variety, as well.
taller, better looking and smarter . . .

They turned me loose from the nervous hospital.  Said I was well.  Mmm hmm.

Suffering for your beliefs is called faithfulness, making others suffer for your beliefs is called being a jerk.

His cross, like the ark in the wilderness, is the center around which his people are to encamp; so that they cannot separate into factions, or withdraw from each other, without retiring at the same time from the presence of the cross.

Based on normal practices each person would have their CUP: in the Jewish/Babylonian Passover each person was to drink so much that they could not tell one person from another.

However, the Lord's Supper was instituted during the Feast of Unleavened bread which tended to run together with Passover: you KILL the passover you know.

Even so historically ALL churches were one cuppers or one chalice people. So was the church of Christ, Baptist, Methodist etal. G.C. Brewer took credit for introducing the multi cup probably because he had a friend with surplus shot glasses.  So, to try to make that a wacko one cupper hate crime when probably MOST people number wise use one cup.

In North Alabama we were a two glasser church until lots of people came down with TB so we converted. However, as with all of the HATE THE CONSERVATIVES, it was the ONE CUPPERS who did not change from the historical position. It was the SHOT GLASS people who IMPOSED something which sowed the discord. Therefore, by all HONEST measures, the multi-cup are the SECTARIANS.   Since they IMPOSED they should be man enough to take the blame and not whine.  The new ANTism can easily cause people to believe that THEY sowed discord by IMPOSING just one cup.  It is a wacko world.

Once they became the SECTARIANS (as with the music issue) it becomes easy to focus on hate and blame those who were never forced to BEGIN doing what they had NEVER done which are called the sectarians. That is the old GUILT CLAUSE.  "I know I shot you in the heart but YOU caused the fuss by squirting blood on my dancing slippers."

As I remember part of the SUNDAY SCHOOL MOVEMENT especially by the Disciples demanded that it NOT be run by the elders and that everyone use the Standard Material.  We would have a lot more adults if we didn't force them to do cut outs and paste ups even into the 12the grade one Youth Minister told me
