Membership?

My thoughts exactly.

I read this question recently: “why do churches say they have five to six hundred members, but only worship a hundred?” Many people gave various answers, but I’ll be honest with you… I think the concept of church membership should be abandoned as quickly as possible. If I had my way we would take the membership rolls and burn them on the front lawn. Actually, our membership records are digital now so it would be a lot easier (just hit the delete button), but less dramatic. I could rant for a while about the concept of membership, but I’ll just give you a few reasons why I think the idea is silly.
