Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

Spiritual Insights from the Disciples of Christ

Alexander Campbell founded the Disciples of Christ (Christian Church) to unite all Protestant denominations. The Disciples split into four or more separate sects. Donald McGavran, co-inventor (with Satan) of the Church Growth Movement, was a Disciples of Christ missionary.


From a Church of Christ (Cambellite) Member:

A more accurate title would be “LCMS Pastor versus the Campbellite Church”.

I once considered joining the LCMS, and I worshiped at a LCMS congregation during the Lent season last year, but I came to not believe in sola scriptura anymore, and thus I could not stay there.

At any rate, the Lutherans are Christians, even if some are anti-Catholic, and beyond this, they hold onto a lot of the tenets of the Catholic Church; there should be some parallels between the Lutheran and Catholic positions within this exposition. Attached is a Word document which leads to a 31 page exposition written by an LCMS pastor. The largest part of it is on baptism, specifically believer’s immersion.

LCMS vs Campbellite


GJ - McGavran worked with the World Council of Churches and endorsed the ministry of death via Planned Parenthood. His denomination is strong throughout Illinois and a swath down toward Texas. LBJ was a Disciples member. The Disciples are one of the most Left-wing of all Protestant groups. They once confessed at convention to betraying three revolutions: the American, the French, and the Communist!

The blog writer seems to be Church of Christ, a fundamentalist break-off from the Disciples. The Church of Christ is opposed to instrumental music in church, so they have developed fine, four-part hymn singing.
