'Mainstream' Church Will Stay Separate

October 15, 1994

Dave McKibben's article (Oct. 8) about Leon Vickers leaving Stanford and a possible pro football career to pursue his "faith" was interesting but left a wrong impression.

For nearly 20 years, I have been an ordained "mainstream" Church of Christ minister. The article correctly stated that the Garden Grove group Vickers attends is "not connected to the more mainstream Churches of Christ." Despite this, the cult expert in the article called the Church of Christ "not a safe group."

Readers need to know that "mainstream" Churches of Christ don't endorse or practice "Hitler" cult tactics. We don't even frown on football.
