PERSONAL INTEREST

"I have never been very interested in fishing, hunting or sports. Yes, I know, it's a little unusual, especially for a guy who currently lives in Louisiana, the "Sportsman's Paradise". But since I was a young boy, I've enjoyed studying. I haven't been interested in fictional but rather non-fictional material and, at the age of 13, discovered the depths and practical applications of the Bible. I have spent my life learning what I could about who God is and what our relationship with Him should be. The links below are materials I've presented through the years, now collected into a single class currently being taught at my local congregation. They are posted here in hopes they will help the reader find a deeper understanding of himself/herself and more clearly see the great love our Father has for His children. To that end, may His name be glorified in all things." Doug, 2018

History of the churches of Christ

Who are We? Part 1 - The lessons begin with an overview of the history of mankind as it is recorded in the Bible. The thread which permeates each account is God's loving kindness toward those who would seek Him first above all else. It traces the accounts which demonstrate God's saving of a remnant of those who are committed to His cause, desiring a personal relationship with Him. https://vimeo.com/278014591

Who are We? Part 2 - The second lesson finishes up the overview of the history of mankind and begins a series of lesson with an overview of the history of the Christian church from the time of Christ to the present. Observations are made in regards to man's tendency to digress and move into apostacy. https://vimeo.com/278033053

Who are We? Part 3 - This lesson discusses the impact of the Roman Catholic church and the Great Schism and leading up to the Reformation Movement. Emphasis is made on God's protecting and preserving His remnant. https://vimeo.com/278148465

Who are We? Part 4 - This lesson discusses the Reformation Movement and the development of Protestantism. https://vimeo.com/278134874

Who are We? Part 5 - This lesson begins the discussion of the American Restoration Movement. Much of the material is based on the writings of Ed Harrell who separates the period between the life of its originators, Barton W. Stone and the Campbells, and the present into four phases, each with unique characteristics but common problems. https://vimeo.com/278145389

Who are We? Part 6 - This lesson begins a discussion of the first phase, 1836-1966, while many of the originators of the movement were still alive. https://vimeo.com/278221323

Who are We? Part 7 - This lesson continues the discussion of the period between 1866-1906 which concludes with the church of Christ being identified as a completely separate group from the Christian Church and the Disciples of Christ. At this point we introduce the next phase, 1906-1960. https://vimeo.com/278838692

Who are We? Part 8 - This lesson begins the discussion of the period between 1906-1960, by the end of this period, the Christian Church and Disciples of Christ split into two separate groups and the Churches of Christ began serious debates over the institutional questions. https://vimeo.com/277919265

Who are We? Part 9 - This lesson wraps up the time period ending in the 1960s and beginning the split in the Churches of Christ as a result of the controversy surrounding the colleges. Even though many churches had been supporting parachurch organizations, the college issue apparently became the lightening rod to question the value and scriptural basis for such organizations resulting in the beginnings of a permanent split between the main stream and non-institutional groups emerged. https://vimeo.com/278970730

Who are We? Part 10 - This lesson covers 1971+ regarding Carl Ketcherside and his emphasis on grace/fellowship, broadening the acceptance of like-minded brethren even though there are differences in practice. We also discuss the development of the International Church of Christ as the final outgrowth of the Crossroads and Boston Movements to answer the problems of a lack of evangelism and close personal relationships. https://vimeo.com/280111938

Who are We? Part 11 - With an emphasis on the fact that most movements are the result of a reaction to either a perceived abuse or neglect experienced by the founder of the movement, this lesson covers 1989+ and the impact that C.A. Holt had on the discussion about the ekklesia being an organism rather than an organization. https://vimeo.com/281381099
