Church Of Christ Vs. Pentecostals

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:
Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.
And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...

There are other freakier things, but that's I think a nice taste of the insanity.

Church of Christ is insane too with their everything that's fun is a sin philosophy.
But decided pentacostals look crazier

Sounds to me like both branches described here have some interesting caveats to go with them. I have to abstain though since I came from neither tradition.
There's one road to tomorrow...There's one road to the truth
There's one road back to civilization...but there's no road back to you

IMO they both are actually somewhat helpful. Why? Because they can wake up people to how insane religion can actually be. They actually help wake people up from religion by demonstrating how utterly insane extremeism is. I would wager many have left religion due to this maddness. It's like a classroom where you learn just how retarded extremism is. Just like snake handlers, poision drinkers, they help people with at least a 3 digit IQ see just how stupid it can be...

Church of Christ is not like Ass of God.
Atleast in my town anyway.
I don't understand how the snake handeling churches keep members you'd think about so many ended up in the hospital people would think they are nuts.

Is COC the same as AOG?
AOG=Assembly of God? If so, then hell no. the Church of Christ is the polar opposite of Assembly of God, but they have the same "If you're not one of use, then you're going to hell" doctrine. The Church of Christ hates to be compared to any other sect, because "they are the one true church."
