Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 20, 1962, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for The VOL 102 CITY GLOBEGAZETTE newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors HOME EDITION united InternUona ruU Uu MASQN IOWA FRIDAY a eopyThta Paper Consists of Two SectionsSection One No W I Religious admission standard Contacts in the pews By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International The story is told of a confi dence man who moved into an American city where he was a stranger to everyone including the police Needing respectable connec tions to impress his intended victims he tried to join various clubs But he couldnt get into any of them because he lacked the necessary character refer ences So he joined the citys lead ing church This tale may be apocryphal but it is not farfeched Most of Americas churches welcome new members with open arms and few questions They assume in practice if not in theory that anyone who applies for church membership is a committed Christian The assumption is to put it mildly unrealistic It is prob ably rare for a practicing criminal to use church mem bership as a camouflage But it is by no means unusual for people to join churches for slightly more reputable secular reasons such as a desire to establish social and business contacts Clergymen are well aware of this The question is what if anything churches should do about it One viewpoint is that they shouldnt do anything about it Exponents of this view ac knowledge that there are mil lions of men and women on church membership rolls to day who do not know the rudi ments of Christian doctrine and who do not live any differently from their unchurched neigh bors But they say that all of these nominal Christians are potential converts and the best way to bring them into a genuine rela tionship with Christ is to in clude them in the life of the community where he is known and served Another view which appears to be gaining adherents is that churches should welcome all comers to their worship serv ices and other activities but reserve full membership to those who have genuinely ac cepted Christ as their Lord and master Those who favor stricter stan dards for church membership argue as follows The world will not take Christianity seriously until it sees evidence that this faith really docs have a transforming effect on the lives of those who are seized by it The presence of many nominal members in the church gravely weakens its mission of providing a living witness to the power of Christ to change human lives Many clergymen who are sympathetic to this general line of reasoning remain hesitant about admissions standards be cause they fear that they might 1 be used by some modern phar isccs as an excuse for enforcing their own rigid views of what constitutes orthodoxy in doc trine or for inquisitorial at tempts to judge an applicants motives One approach which seems to overcome these objections is to require all applicants for membership to complete a course in the teachings of the church which will be sufficiently comprehensive to give them a clear idea of what theyre actually committing themselves to when they take the vows involved in baptism or con firmation Few churches however have yet gone as far as the Church of the Saviour in Washington DC organized in 1948 bythe Rev Gordon Cosby a former Army chaplain it extends a warm welcome to anyone who wishes to attend its services or participate in its activities But stiff requirements are laid down for those who would enter into full membership They must complete two full years of in five collegelevel courses oh the Bible and Christian doctrine They must agree to tithe give 10 per cent of their income to unselfish causes And they must become active participants in a mission group
