Thoughts on Restoration...

In 1906 a curious division occured between two groups that claimed to be devoted to restoring unity and the teaching of the "New Testament". The two groups were labeled as "Christian Churches" and "Churches of Christ". The Churches of Christ are most distinguishable in their a cappella church worship services. Christian Churches not only had musical instruments, but some even joined in community efforts at evangelism under various missionary societies.
Today there are relics from this split. While there are some instrumental Churches of Christ most are southern, and still a cappella. The "Christian Church" split again after world war two to formally form the so called "independent" churches and the "Disciples of Christ".
Me, I'm into restoration of the personal kind...
That's what B.A.S.I.C. is ultimately all about, restoring people to God through Christ.
How has your life been restored?
Let's hear your testimony!
