Individual or Organization

by Don Wright

The Brown Street church of Christ is what brethren refer to as a non-institutional church. What that means is that we oppose human organizations doing the work that God gave to the church specifically, that is, to individuals who make up the universal church and to local churches made up of individual Christians. There has […]

The church of Christ before the Restoration

by Don Wright

The Restoration Movement began in the early 1800s but that was not the beginning of the Lord’s church. The Lord’s church started in the first century when Peter preached the first gospel sermon on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:14-47). To claim that the Lord’s church started with, or emerged out of, the Restoration Movement, […]

Shirt Wearers

by Don Wright

Fraternities and Sororities have been around for a long time. Phi Beta Kappa Society, was founded on December 5, 1776 at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, and was the first fraternal organization in the United States of America. There were many more such societies to follow. On December 4, 1906, Alpha […]

Paul’s Praise for the Thessalonians

by Don Wright

During his second missionary journey, Paul made a visit to Thessalonica where he enjoyed some success in disseminating the gospel of Christ (Acts 17:1-9). “Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and […]

Serving God Now

by Don Wright

Procrastination is a flaw shared by many in the world today, and perhaps we are all guilty of it at times. Some people plan to obey the gospel and serve God someday, just not today. It reminds me of the time that Paul preached to Felix, reasoning of righteousness, temperance, and judgment. Felix was moved […]

Stop and Consider

by Don Wright

Sometimes we need to stop and consider things of interest, especially things that pertain to God. Let’s take a few minutes to consider some things revealed to us by God’s Word. Consider the Wondrous Works of God “Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God” (Job 37:14). How one […]

Perfection Is Not a Requirement for Salvation

by Don Wright

Walking in the light is a requirement in order to maintain fellowship with God (1 John 1:7). What, though, does it mean to walk in the light? To walk in the light means being controlled by a desire that is in harmony with the will of God and living within the borders of that will […]

When Is It Right For a Church To Divide?

by Don Wright

Let me begin this article by saying that God is disappointed whenever a local church composed of His children are forced to divide. We should all agree that God’s first desire is for His people to dwell together in unity (Psalms 133:1; John 17:21, 22; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Ephesians 4:3). When God’s people cannot dwell […]

Why I Oppose Funerals in the Church Building

by Don Wright

Let me start this article by saying that I do not believe at this stage that this issue under consideration should be made a test of fellowship. I will tell you why I feel that way later on in the article. Having said that, it is my personal belief that conservative brethren need to reconsider […]

What Am I Doing Here?

by Don Wright

Have you ever found yourself in a place where you really didn’t want to be and didn’t really belong? When a child of God gives in to peer pressure and agrees to tag along with friends to a place where worldly activities and ungodly conditions prevail, he may end up asking himself, “what am I […]
