Church Membership

Usher:  Hey Deak – why do we have memberships in the church?

Deacon:  So you can vote and be a part of something God is building

Usher:  You mean something the pastor is building, like a secure living?

Deacon: You sound bitter, Usher.  God is in control Usher – you give to God, you are a member of the body of Christ

Usher: Not as I see it Deak- Membership Obligations: Give, Give, Give  Membership Benefits: Give, Give, Give (occasional prayer if you ask for it)

    I think we have membership in order to secure the institution in order to secure the hierarchy in order to secure the denomination in order to secure the influence in order to secure the power in order to realize our ambitions.

    I know you’re invoking the first amendment in your blog…but do you consider yourself an active member of this church you seem to be criticizing?

    It would seem to me that you’re doing more harm than good by your criticism, unless of course you’re actually part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

    But as an outsider, you seem to be a divider rather than a peacemaker.

    Dividing that which is suspect, corrupt or otherwise not in line with God cannot be all that bad, now can it? I criticize all forms of church that are not grounded in the Gospel. If you’re part of this particular group, keep drinking the Kool-Aid and keep funding man-made efforts. It’s your choice, but it has nothing to do with Christ. If you’re not, understand that Jesus didn’t come to make peace and He sure didn’t envision church to be what we as men have come to make and to accept. The Rotary, Lion’s Club and Elks are more Godly than most churches. At least they tell you straight up what you’re giving the money for. HEHE.
