I grew up in a church of christ evangelical realm. Speaking in tongues etc. We attended a church that had around 100 members but weekly donations ran north of $1000. This was in the sixties. They supported missionaries overseas but not much local. Spread the word of god was the mantra. They did some good things but it was always with conditions. They didn't have indoor plumbing until the early 70's when my dad and myself built an addition. No charge. The people didn't believe much in science etc. Many sad stories because they didn't read or study except one book. In fact the church gave to the baker's as did members including my parents. And they couldn't afford it. I moved away in 73 and never came back except to visit once in a while. It really is sad if you don't look around. And only believe what you are taught. Not many members anymore.
