Church of Christ-Cult???

I have heard this several times before--and it arose on my table/mind again lately--does anyone know if Church of Christ is really considered a "cult" or "cult" type religion and why????

  • I attended a Church of Christ with a bf for about 4 years. I never thought it was a cult.
    A few different things about them: they passed communion at your seat, the particular church we attended at a baptismal pool behind the altar and adults were baptized wearing white robes when they were ready....um....I can't think of anything else "different" about it and I was brought up Methodist, now practicing Presbyterian.

  • Anon, ihernandez said jw meaning "just wondering"


    To the OP: I have heard some "interesting" things about Church of Christ, but nothing that would make them a cult, there is however the international churches of Christ, which is labeled by "biblical" Christians as a Cult. It originated from the Church of Christ, but is no longer part of that denomination and is now it's own.

  • Why are Christians so quick to label other denoms as cults and throw a fit if anyone questions the validity of their own?
