What is the difference between a Baptist and a Methodist church? One of the biggest differences between these two denominations is, to put it succinctly, "how wet you get" at baptism. Baptists accept only baptism by immersion, while Methodi…sts tend towards the "sprinkling" method of baptism. Both Baptist and Methodist denominations have similar governing organizations and methods of worship.
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
That's just two passage, you can either use biblegate. There's also a nice list here: It can only be assumed there were instruments with the singing. Just looking at passages it's not clear that there were instruments, it can only be clear there was singing.
So from a purely scriptural stand point, the CoC would go with what they know for sure instead what they cannot know.
As the original intent of the CoC was to create a common stance on scripture. You asked for scripture so that's what I gave, but there's also historical relevance too. I haven't studied up on it before, since I personally have no qualms with instruments and don't see it as "unacceptable" worship though I enjoy a capellabut here's an excerpt from a website: Early Christianity included two groups of people: Jews with a background of instrumental music see Psalm and pagan Gentiles who also worshipped with musical instruments.
Yet when the church was established in about 33 A. Even today the majority of Christian groups worldwide still sing without instruments, or acappella literally meaning of the chapel or in the way of the church.
So it seems logical, considering our goal of restoring a New Testament type Christian worship, that acappella singing would fit that model.
Besides, the only musical instrument God ever created is the human voice; man created all the rest.
Perhaps the purest form of musical worship on earth is found in human voices. Honestly my first thought is, "what do you mean? While the average CoC will likley beieve an infant is without sin. AND how are those things connected or separated.
So to me at least, "born sinless" is just too simple a term to define what's going on. Because this is such an extensive topic there are many facets to the topic. Because there are many facets, there are pratial or different perspectives in the CoC even if they generally agree an infant is without sin.
To ask to provide scripture as to why someone believes,"children are sinless" is to ask to provide ALL scripture for ALL the reasons someone might believe children are without sin Thus I have a delima because I don't have an exhuastive list of scripture on the topic nor do I desire to spend the hours compling this list.
I've been trying to find a comprehensive and exhaustive article on the subject, but I find most are not holistic enough and lacking certain details.
So I would suggest, if you think there is no scriptural support for "childern born sinless", run some searches yourself and study yourself.Not even very conservative CoC folk believe they need to have a chapter and verse for every detail of a church service so I was explaining the difference between prohibitions against instrumental worship and the usage of pews.

Title: Why The Churches Of Christ Author: Michael Hatcher. The Churches of Christ: A Comparative Essay Over the past ten years there has been much controversy in the Christian and secular media about the International Churches of Christ (ICC), and the United (or mainline) Church of Christ (CoC).
Restoration churches tend to be amillennial (i.e., they believe that the Millennium of Revelation 20 refers to the history of the church between Christ’s first and second coming), although one splinter group of the COC is premillennial (i.e., believing that the Millennium will be a period of Christ’s rule on the earth after His second coming).
