Top Ten Brethren Sins

One of our neighbors in the Church of the Brethren has written a tongue-in-cheek list of Top Ten Brethren sins. Here are a few selected sins--read the entire list by clicking here. They come with a warning: "You've got to know brethren to get it, but here they are."

By Walt Wiltschek - The top 10 Brethren sins:

9. Thou shalt not refer to female members of thy denomination as “cisterns”

8. Thou shalt not enjoy the baptism so much that thou goeth back under for a fourth dip.

7. Thou shalt not have fewer than three popular Brethren hymns on your iPod at all times.

5. Thou shalt not go overboard on “going green” by substituting solar power for oil in the anointing service.

4. Thou shalt not try to get a discount at McDonald’s by claiming the “Big Mac” was named after your church’s founder.
