I appreciate Robert pointing out that it isn't just the cofc with problems but organized religion in general. Since all of them are made up of humans, there are going to be problems and I think that is good to remember.
I also think what marc shared is very good to remember. That just because we do have problems and some very narrow views, there are also those who really want to do God's will, in the church of Christ. There are people in the church of Christ who do love, serve, and preach grace. Whats sad is like everything else, it seems to be the "narrow" views that give the world our reputation for some reason but maybe, just maybe, if those of us who do preach grace and continue to love and serve, we can see that change! I'm very hopeful as well.
