Wal-Mart Membership

July 29, 2010

Many members view their commitment to their church much as they view their commitment to shopping at Wal-Mart.  They may enjoy the goods and services offered, but they are not remotely interested in working with fellow-shoppers to govern it.  If a better deal comes along, or things change and Wal-Mart no longer meets their needs, they will vote with their feet and shop elsewhere.  (John Hammett, Biblical Foundations for Baptist Churches, 157)
