Why Logo.jpg

As a member and minister of a congregation associated with the churches of Christ, I often encounter “why” questions—questions like “why do Churches of Christ lack instruments in worship,” “why do Churches of Christ forbid women from leading in the worship service,” “why do Churches of Christ observe the Lord’s Supper every Sunday,” and “why do Churches of Christ place so much emphasis on baptism.” Sometimes the questions are posed from those outside our fellowship, and sometimes the questions are posed from those inside our fellowship. Regardless of who is asking, it seems obvious that an understanding of the church’s distinct doctrine is lacking. Therefore, over the next several weeks I will be presenting articles that help explain the Biblical basis for our beliefs and practices by answering some of the more frequently asked “why” questions.
