met a girl recently who invited me to her church (coc.) she explained to me they don't believe in musical instruments in their services. i have found it very confusing. was once a music major and it is still a very big part of my life. in addition, i have a great appreciation for gospel music was praise bands. what's really going on with that?

that's just our beliefs. They didn't have them back then and so that don't use them now.

I grew up COC and now that i have attended Baptist and Methodist churches I find it very hard to worship without instruments. It's not that either way is right or wrong-- to me it's more about preference than anything else.

There is a verse in the bible that says to make melody in your heart for the Lord. They take that to mean no musical instruments. Only reason they do that.

Your cult uses the Swiss cheese bible that has Psalms cut out of it, no doubt. There is no Anointing, Christ, in your cult and you don't believe anything in the bible. The evil thing is your cult with it's own peculiar belief you made up. Music is from God. Your cult is from Hell.

Actually, if you look up the history you will find that C.O.C. is part of a large group that split off from other churches in the late1800's. They were led by several men including Joseph Campbell. The group disagreed on many points in trying to form a new church and wound up breaking into several smaller groups. The C.O.C. group was the poorer of the bunch and could not afford instruments. So they found scripture that they believed backed up not using instruments. They didn't want to say they were too poor to buy them, so instead they said God was against them.

Many, not all, COC preachers teach that they are the only correct religion and the only ones getting into Heaven.

the word also encourages to praise in song. imo, the guys and gals who hold snakes are greater than a sect dictating who gets in and who does not. at least the are praising with the spirit than the a tired old self proclaimed king (campbell.) again these are opinions. judgement is not mine.

The church of Christ is no more a cult than all the other churches here.
they dont believe you will go to hell for playing music in a church, they just dont do it.
They think sexy dancing , smoking and selling or buying beer is wrong too . Its really all in the bible which they dont add too or take away from to please the 'in crowd' at the moment.
Just saying.
BUT .......... if you dont believe in Baptism, Keeping the sabbath holy, living by Gods commandments,
If you dont believe in God or a Hell, If you think premarital sex is OK, or if you go to a church that is very slack on things like this ......... then you may think they believe you are in danger of hell fire.

So the Bono COC member who told me I was taking my son to hell when I told him we were members of a Baptist church knew from the less than 5 minutes he had been on my porch that I was a bad person? Bull.... He only knew that I went to a different denomination.

actually if they believe all of the above, they are adding to the bible so they must be going to hell too.
