Ok, this weekend I went to a long time family friend’s wedding. They are Church of Christ (the one down here in the South, affiliated with David Lipscomb U and Freed Hardeman U).
Anyway, I noticed something very odd in the church…there are no religious images of any kind! No crosses, no pictures of Jesus, nothing religious except a Bible in the pew!!
This struck me as really really odd since most Protestant churches usually have at least a cross on the wall. I even asked my Dad (who is a Methodist minister) why they didn’t have any. He didn’t know either so he asked some of his teachers at school (he’s also a principal) who are Church of Christ and they said they had actually never thought of it before.
I also attend their school,Freed Hardeman, while I’m getting my Masters (I didn’t want to but its the only option available to me right now) and I know that they don’t have crosses or pictures of Jesus in the school, either.
Do any of you know why they don’t have anything religious in their sanctuaries or in other buildings that they are affiliated with/own?
