Rickie Williams comment on lower case in: church of Christ

Rickie Williams writes:
Howdy Ed. You raised the question concerning the capitalization (or lack thereof) of the statement "church of Christ." I attribute the writing to being done by one who was diligent to follow scripture.

Read Romans 16:16 from any noted accurate translation such as the ASV and you will find...
"Salute one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ salute you."
The plurality indicated was in reference to all of the autonomous congregations of the church. The word autonomous is important because there is nothing in New Testament scripture that supports external governing of any congregation of the church. Rickie Williams --Rickie Williams

Some information on the church of Christ at Egypt

Early reference to establishment of the church 137 years ago from proceedings at Mt. Pleasant Christian Church referred to community as "Egypt" before the church was established.

Paul Patton writes:
To add a little more information about the beginning of Egypt Christian Church and, hopefully, to motivate someone to do some research as to where the name "Egypt" for the community and the church originated, I share this quotation from the Mount Pleasant Christian Church record book.

"The church convened at Mt. Pleasant on the first day of April, 1876...Brethren and sisters came forward in person and by petition and requested letters of recommendation to organize the church of Christ at Egypt, Adair County, Kentucky. Said petitioners (were) commended to the Lord and his grace and faithfulness in Christ." This was the beginning of the Egypt Christian Church, but the question remains, why was the community and the church called Egypt? - Paul Patton
Comments re article 58866 A history question which has stumped historians: What is the origin of the name of the community and the church at Egypt, Adair County, KY? (A new question: Why was the lower case "c" used in "church of Christ"? - CM

A history question which has stumped historians

How did Egypt*, Adair County, KY, get the name?

It's a great question to ponder over the weekend, and it is one which has stumped two leading historians.

Bro. Paul Patton, who wrote, "A history of the Christian churches in Adair County, Kentucky" (1990), says he has asked and asked with no answer. A breakfast table companion, Mike Watson, author of two volumes of "An Adair County History," didn't have the answer, either, when asked Saturday morning in a downtown Columbia restaurant.

If anyone has the answer they and we at CM would like to know.

Egypt* - (And in keeping with the doctrine of Michael Morris, the town is "Absher." Morris says there is no such place as "Egypt.")

I'm in what I'm now calling a "Chuck Rut".

What have you done to me Chuck Hinman? I've reread your article . Large Gardens - A Lost Art? published in Columbia Magazine, March 24, 2013 half a dozen times now.

I swear I'm really not picking on Chuck. It's just that he's really touched my heart here and it's too wet and cold to go out and plant my own "Large Garden".
