Exclusivity

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.

About jaimeanne

I'm me. Graphic designer extraordinaire, urban master teacher of social studies, former adjunct professor, high school principal, and now most importantly-- Mom to the cutest little girl ever. I try to live by the quote, "Work like you don't need money, Love like you've never been hurt, And dance like no one's watching." I believe in Christ, and sometimes I'm just trying to figure out what He wants me to do. This blog chronicles that journey.
