Why is it that we exclude those that don’t fit the mold? How is it Christ-like for us to do this? He didn’t exclude any. He took them all– sinner, saint, Publican, Sadducee, Pharisee, young, old, black or white. Why are we excluding others?
Now I can completely understand a drinking club being exclusive to a point. I never wanted to be invited, and never wanted to join. I’m not a drinker, never have been, and never will be. But why are church groups trying to exclude others based on age, marital status or worthiness? Just makes no sense to me.
