Examiner.com article: Sunday 101: We don’t really choose a church

I’ve published another article for Examiner.com as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. This article is part of my “Sunday 101″ series, and it’s called “Sunday 101: We don’t really choose a church.”

Unfortunately, the modern practice of “church membership” often works to divide the church. God places us together with other believers because we need each other. However, we often allow our “church membership” to separate us for those very believers that God has placed in our lives.

Here is part of the article:

Most churches, including those in the Raeigh area, have membership requirements and membership rolls. These requirements and rolls express who is part of that particular church and who is not part of that particular church. The rolls and requirements not only separate believers from nonbelievers, but they usually also separate believers from other believers.
