I didn’t want to join a fraternity. I didn’t want to join the lodges or private societies. I was once invited to join the Masons. After one meeting I decided they drink too much alcohol and have too many secret handshakes and strange greetings. I decided to join Club Christ instead.
Now before you judge me too badly, think about it. Club Christ has been around a very long time. Longer than the Knights of the Templar, The Alpha’s and the Omega’s (hmmm sounds familiar) and all the other groups and comraderies. Club Christ has a lot to offer that these others don’t.
Club Christ has history, respectability, name recognition and most importantly no dues are required. In fact, all I had to do to join Club Christ was walk down the aisle or say a certain prayer and proclaim that I accepted Jesus in my heart. After that, it was a done deal. I could do anything I wanted in my private life as long as I showed up on Sunday morning and put some money in the collection basket to support the ministry and the ministers. Pretty nice club to join. I am not required to do much more from what I understand. That is, unless I open that book everyone mentions now and then. You may have heard of it. The Bible.
That book talks about going, witnessing and baptizing. I think I may join the society of Lepidopterology. It is a nice long name and it sounds very exclusive. I like butterflies.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen
