Joining or becoming?

My friend Kurt Stevens, over at Kurt's Korner had a great post on What The Marines Taught Me About Christianity Click on it and enjoy.

I found his discussion the distinction between joining something and becoming something to be very insightful. It is a subtle distinction, but a crucial one with Christianity. We need to become something new, to be transformed by the renewing of our mind. We aren't joining a club. We are becoming like Christ. The mindset is very different.

He said it much better than I can. Go read it for yourself.
