This Blog is a subset of the website: ex-Church of Christ.com, and is part of a support system for people who have been involved in the rigid and sectarian wings of the Restoration Movement/ Churches of Christ.
About 20% of Churches of Christ remain rigid and sectarian. The Churches of Christ are mostly a capella (singing only), practice believer’s baptism by immersion for the remission of sins into the body of Christ, weekly Lord’s Supper, and try to replicate the organization and worship of the first century churches recorded in the New Testament.
People who leave the more rigid Churches of Christ are sometimes withdrawn from or shunned, even by family members. They are often told they are lost and headed for hell. This is understandably stressful for those who go through this. This is why we need a blog, a website and a bulletin board.
You are welcome to post comments. For a bulletin board that facilitates discussion between ex- and current members of the Churches of Christ go here.
