Church of Christ Non-Institutional  These brethren's misuse of Scripture has caused much division in the Lord's church contrary to God's will (1 Cor. 1:10; John 17:20,21). In these articles are a few thoughts that might help correct their error if they will handle the points and verses honestly.  My prayer is that they will.  These articles are written with love for their souls.
