Questions to the churches of Christ

Recently the Annapolis Park church of Christ sent out a 15 question doctrinal survey questions to learn what other sister congregations of the churches of Christ believe and teach about the Holy Bible.

The motivation for doing so was to enable the elders at the Annapolis Park church of Christ to effectively shepherd our flock, specifically, to protect them from the many false teachers cloaking themselves with the name church of Christ, but are really wolves in sheep’s clothing Matthew 7:15-2015 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Brethren, the Holy Bible teaches that false teachers operate stealthily, surreptitiously, smuggling in false doctrine alongside God’s people (2 Peter 2:12 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction., Galatians 2:44 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:, Jude 1:3-43 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Leaders who have not answered the doctrinal questions openly, bear the marks of false teachers as described in the scriptures above, who operate stealthily, so that their true nature will not be detected.See the list of congregations who have not answered the doctrinal questions, the list also includes Rubel Shelley, President of Rochester College
