why? 1. eternal security is the gift of the Father 2. baptism is not required to be saved 3. the founders of the restoration movement were nontrinitarians 4. "the bible speaks we speak, the bible is silent we are silent" For such a view the churches of christ teach many traditions of men not found in any New Testament 5. c of c's preach in english - where does the NT authorize english or mention english? 6. Their theology is based solely on ACTS, yet their interpretation of ACTS is nugatory.
