Chad at Addison Road has posted on the subject of church membership, as in, â€œAnd also, I think that church membership is kind of a silly, outdated notion.â€?
Chad, I’m with you — mostly. If part of the argument is that church membership (as in “membership roll”) doesn’t appear in the Bible, then the conclusion is that it’s far worse than just being outdated. Interesting theme, with discussion going on. Church membership has always seemed off-base to me in the manner in which its practiced. Kinda like saying you aren’t really a part of the family into which you were born — unless, of course, you can produce a birth certificate to prove otherwise. What’s with the paper hangup?
