“I wish that were true; however, many Texas Southern Baptists have been taught from the pulpit that if youre not SB youre going to hell. C of Cers believe if youre not C of C, youre going to hell. Wisconsin Synod Lutherans believe if youre not WSL, youre going to hell.”
I doubt you have ever a heard a Southern Baptist or Lutheran say that.
As a member of Church oi Christ congregation for most of my life (25+ years)
I do not try to say who will or will not be saved, its not my job nor could I do it ! I just have the New Testament as the instructions as to how one may be saved.
Unfortunately, I have. From the Baptist Student Union people at UT Austin to the baptists in Brady, Texas to those here in San Antonio, I have heard it over and over again. The Wisconsin Synod Lutherans I know who visit their family in San Antonio refuse to attend church with their “apostate” family members because it’s not “real” Christianity.
I wish it were different, but this is personal experience. You should hear what they say when they learn I’m a Christian who attends a Methodist church!
