Lord's Supper - The New Testament and early church history record that Christians met on the first day of every week (Sunday) to worship God and remember Christ (Acts 20:7; I Corinthians 11:23-34; 16:1-2). 2. Prayer - (Acts 2:42; Philippians 4:6-7; I Thessalonians 5:17-18). 3. Singing - God's word authorizes only vocal music and specifically singing (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16; Hebrews 2:12).  The New Testament shows no use of mechanical instruments of music in worship to God by the church Christ established.  Church history notes no such use for nearly 700 years after the New Testament was completed.  It is an innovation of men, not of God. 4. Giving - Free-willed, cheerful generous, and every week (Acts 20:35; I Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 8:9). 5. Preaching of the Word - The gospel of Christ, not men's doctrines nor entertainment, saves and strengthens us (Acts 2:42; 20:7; Romans 10:17; I Corinthians 1:18-23) Identifying Characteristics of the Lord’s Church by Kevin L.

Taylor Cole Professor of Philosophy at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, will debate the existence of God Tuesday, Sept. 26, 6:30-9:30 p.m. EDT. The event, will be on the campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. The central question for the debate will be “Is God a Moral Monster?” Both debaters have agreed to affirm and defend a precisely stated affirmative proposition. Rosenberg will affirm the following: “Since I know that there is vast human and animal suffering, I know that a benevolent, omnipotent God does not exist.” Gilmore will deny. Following the discussion of Rosenberg’s affirmative proposition, Gilmore will affirm and defend his proposition: “The use of suffering as moral criticism against God implies the absolute moral law of God; therefore, God exists.” Rosenberg will deny No admission will be charged to attend the debate.
