Refocusing: A Plea for the Church of Christ
I know every church of Christ is different so this may not apply to your church so take this as you like. I love the Churches of Christ and heritage. Like any family there there are things that can be done to make that heritage more rich, and meaningful. Something in a heritage that maybe not so proud of but we can learn from and move on and not focus on.
Is it time to for the Church of Christ as a whole to refocus? I believe it is time to get the focus off of Self and back on to Christ, the Word, and Evangelism. Let's get rid of trying to be right with opinions and be Biblical. Let's get rid of the terms liberal and conservative strive to be Biblical. Let's get the focus off of self (of how to do worship, how to do communion, what version to use, and and on and on...) and focus our hearts and eyes upon Jesus and Him crucified, remembering that it is His church; bought with the highest price. Let's look beyond the past, and press on toward the future equipping His church for service. Let's agree on the essential doctrines of salvation(Belief in Jesus is son of God, Confession, Repentance, Baptism, Commitment to Jesus as a disciple). Let's refocus on the lost and understand that with God nothing is impossible.
