Would Jesus pledge to a fraternity?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Brother P @ 2:02 am

The First Fraternity in America on a  college campus was Phi Beta Kappa at William and Mary College in Va. An anti mason movement in America  during the 1800’s caused them to become an open fraternity. Many college  fraternities patterned themselves after Freemasonry. Blacks were not allowed in the  White lodges so in turn they formed there own version called Prince Hall Freemasonry.  From both lodge systems sprung many college fraternities and sororities.  Several Movies such as Animal House and School Daze dramatize Greek Life on College  Campuses in America.

1868 would mark the beginning of what we call Hampton University. Hampton University has from its inception has had a strong Christian  Heritage. The Founder Himself Samuel Chapman Armstrong was a son of missionaries in  Hawaii.

Even with this strong Christian heritage at Hampton University somehow  barbaric Initiations became a part of Campus Life. Hazing got to the point that  States, Universities and organization would create anti hazing policies and  Laws. Two men were released recently from jail for hazing a young brother in  Florida. And last semester a young brother died while pledging a fraternity in Texas.

If you join a Greek lettered organization in the America for the most part and don’t go through an underground process you will be called a Paper/fake member. These  members are allowed to do official work for their organization but when it comes to  the social aspect of most Greek Lettered Organizations so called Fake/Paper  members are disrespected, rejected and looked at by some members as imposters.  For a while I was a part of the problem and maybe the threat of jail could  have made a difference in the way I initiated brothers into my organizations. But  at the time in the eighties we gave no thought to getting caught hazing or  being hazed. But I will never forget the night a brother had a epileptic  seizure while pledging. This would mark the end of my hardcore pledge tactics.  And in 2001 when I began to follow Jesus Christ would mark the end of my days  as a Hazer.

So to my fellow Christians I pose a simple Question. Would Jesus Christ  Pledge Your Organization? Jesus Christ would never engage in illegal activity because he was  sinless and would not violate his commandment

Thou shall not Lie

So Jesus Christ would join through the legal process? He would not be a legitimate member either because he would never take  the oaths.

Jesus Christ said, “Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it  is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one  hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is  more than these cometh of evil. “

Jesus Christ was hazed to the point of death and three days later rose  from the dead. He is the Light of the World and if you follow him you will become  the light of the World. If you are a follower od Jesus his presence is in  you. But you still have to crucify your flesh daily. He loves you and I love you  too. How good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in Unity.  Lets fellowship.
