    AKA "The Boston Movement".

    I thought they were pretty much "gone", but apparently Kip is calling out the remnant.

    Anyone here a part of them now or were a part of them? Let's talk!

    I got invited to one before converting to Catholicism. I went a couple times but they parterned me up with someone and I found that a bit creepy so I stopped going. That was one of the only times I stopped going somewhere for non-theological reasons.

    You weren't "partnered" with the one who invited you? Was your inviter female?

    I was a part of them for about 3 months and left because of scriptural differences. I have seen quite a bit of bitterness over their methods.

    A very big fella that was incredibly nice. My inviter was a smaller guy that I met at barnes and nobles.

    I do remember a rather excited speaker. He seemed more of a motivational speaker then anything else. Although I did leave Protestantism (I know you don't consider yourself as one :bounce ) all together for theological reasons. As a matter of fact my last stop before leaving was talking to a Church of Christ pastor who I had known for some time. I have such a high view of him because of his straight foward biblical interpretations and is extremely bright. We still talk but he knows where I stand. :)

    Peace in Christ

    P.S. Church of Christ is probably the only place I would be part if not Eastern Orthodox. :jam:

    Psssst... we hardly ever capitalize "church" in churches of Christ except in signage. It's not capitalized in scripture. :D

    Was a member and am not now. I realized they don't completely follow the Bible as they say they do.

    Not even close. It has nothing to do with the LDS.

    You are getting confused again. The International Churches of Christ are a splinter group of the churches of Christ. The former answer to one super church or an "apostle" and the latter are independent of each other. The former practice a rather vile form of "discipleship" while the latter try to stick more to the Biblical concept of that. I, and many others, consider the ICOC a cult.
