Considering decline in membership, decline in influence, and splits within the church of Christ, it is past time for self-examination. Why these losses? Is there something about our methodology that has alienated folks? What is it that causes so many splits and factions?
Can we now deeply examine what we have taught, our doctrines, our attitudes, our outreach? What if some doctrine that we have held is incorrect, or at least un-provable? Would that shake our faith, or make us realize that we are just fallible humans ever searching for the truth of God’s word?
