    You title says "somewhat agree with' while your poll says "agree with the most"
    sorry. I can't vote for any and will abstain from this thread.

    . . . I cannot vote, because you did not place "NT Church/Baptist" on there . . .

    I voted Church of Christ with GREAT reservation.

    I am actually closer to a transition between Independent Christian and Disciples of Christ. I believe in church autonomy as do the Independent Christians, as well as share the Restoration emphasis on returning baptism to part of the conversion experience and by immersion only, but I share the Disciples' proactive stand for unity among Christians.

    I reject any baptism doctrine that has believers not saved until completed baptism. I believe I have the answer to the `mystery' of what happens to unbaptized believers: they are saved by faith. I believe, however, that no one is a genuine convert who actively evades baptism.

    Having said all this, I believe many "Churches of Christ" are not churches of Christians. The reason is that they do not seem to act like Christians, and Matthew 7:20 says "By their fruits ye shall know them" (ASV). Many of these people would be nicer and more honest if they had no religious beliefs at all. They are called "hard-liners." A strange position that I have is that there are some Churches of Christ that are genuine Christian churches, but a large portion of "Churches of Christ" are not, while most `denominational' churches are churches of Christians.

    I would agree most with the Churches of Christ if they had collectively adhered to the Restoration ideals.

    It was hard to answer, because as I looked at each group listed, I immediately thought of the points of disagreement. Actually, in answering "Lutheran", I was thinking partly about the commitment to Scripture scholarship I have seen in many Lutheran pastors and theologians, and about the wonderful tradition of Lutheran worship and hymnody ... not so much about their theology as about their piety and culture. As a sometime organist I absolutely have to prefer that over the Church of Christ "no musical instruments" folks!

    Well, I just had to vote Lutheran, because with the exception of the ELCA it is the NT church. :thumbsup::saint:

    Well, Presbyterians have the best theological stance and polity of them all, so that was my vote.

    Helps that I'm PC(USA), I guess...

    It's called "sarcasm." Look it up.

    I wonder what the EO and RCC think about being lumped together.

    I just thought it would be interesting to see which traditions people here would agree with outside the Baptist faith.


    EO and RCC have vey few differences and although they do have their differences , they would agree on most issues. If you study them, they would agree 95% of the time.

    I still think 'none of the above' could have been included.

    Aside from baptism, I would have no problem in an evangelical Presbyterian Church.

    Cheers,
