I have a question today maybe someone could share a different light, my husband and I have been saved since we were teenagers, and went to a nondomination church. A few years ago we add to move and for almost one year did not attend a church. Now, since then we were blessed with a couple who belong to The Church of God but had been sent by there district office to "clean up" they are realy evanlist that preach in mexico, in this church we have been going to since march we enjoy the messages, the worship is awesome, Holy Ghost lead!.. The pastor called today and mentioned that if we could help out in some of the bible studies that they would not be able to teach, for they will be in mexico. And this sunday wanted to make us members of The Church of God... personaly i tread this with caution, cause some of the doctrine we dont agree on, second he mentioned in the conversation to make sure my husband "dresses nice", well he dress good he wears long dress shorts and a button shirt, and in a joking way i said that he dress nice always, then he replyed back that they are not suppose to let anyone on the pulpit in shorts, and women should wear a dress... I laughted and said okay... This did not settle with me very well, i have not spoken to my husband about it yet but is it just me? I am not sure how to take this and Why do churches want you to be a member, cant we just go and worship, and do God's work without a membership?... Does this make any sence?
