As Churches of Christ sought to restore the church to its New Testament origins they removed many manmade barriers to faith. They had a serious devotion to the Bible and did their best to remove any emphasis on other books or on manmade creeds. Sometimes their devotion to the Bible was unhelpful and idolatrous, but we can recapture their devotion to the authority of scripture. Sometimes their rejection of creeds was throwing the baby out with the bathwater, but we can use creeds to inspire faith and conversation rather than to divide. At the end of the day the only barrier, the only thing that matters is – what are you going to do about Jesus? Do you believe that he is the Son of God? Have you accepted him as Lord and Saviour of your life?
