I just read a very condemnational post by a leader in a large nationwide Christian motorcyclists organization. In it he sits in judgment and condemnation of all Christian motorcycle clubs that don't patch up women, as being inferior to his organization that does. He thinks we do it to be like other clubs, and wrote at length how we are to be separate from the world not of the world. Let me bring to light some facts he has ignored, because I've heard from many like him.

Here at Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club, like many other Christian motorcycle clubs, we are a men's ministry. And that's okay. There's something out there called Promise Keepers convention for men, I'm sure your church has a men's ministry. That's ok too. I'm not aware of any reasonable call for them to admit women as well. We Disciples are focused on getting one percenters saved and those are by and large Men. We are focused on growing Christian men in their faith in God and love of brotherhood. Both of those things are oriented toward men. It just is what it is. There are lots of organizations out there for women or for both men and women, I won't name them here. But we are an organization for men. I certainly don't criticize their mission of patching up women and men. But they aren't motorcycle clubs. And whether anyone likes it or not, that's just the way it is. I don't go around decrying the fact that my church has a quilt knitting for ladies, and I'm not allowed to join! And neither should you.

God has a place for every Christian ministry. Don't be jealous, don't criticize or condemn other Christian ministries whose goals and directions from the Holy Spirit is different than your aim. Celebrate the diversity of Christian organizations, we have the same goal, and are reaching the lost. Don't sit in judgment of your brother. Work to find common ground, that is the work of mature men and women. The rest is the work of the enemy.
