Question to membership dilemma !


Padawan Learner
Hello to all.

I hope my question fits here .

A short overview about my dilemma: In the Swamp I have reported a little bit about my difficult job situation, now I decided to look for a new job, and I have possibly the chance to get a new
job in a christian organization ( work with and for mental and physical handicapped people), so here my dilemma: I´am very interested to be a member in the Fellowship and
considered to fill out an application, but the above mentioned organization has as requirement……. The membership in an accepted christian church. ( I think they mean a classic German church).

I´ve resigned my membership in the christian church approx. 3 years ago , and now I consider to sign again for the job (only on paper and with tax…. I am not sure if this is allowed :huh:),
but is it possible to be in the Fellowship at the same time ? (I have no idea of the legal backround, cause it is transnational, here in Germany there are other laws then in the US ) but if it should not be possible I will waive for the new job and fill out the application for the Fellowship.

Help is very welcome. Thank you,

Hi !

I do not want to leave my question as it stands, so I will give you a short update.

The last two days I have struggled with this question, and I weighted the pros and cons, finally I have decided to give the new job a miss, cause I don´t want to let me dictate with
which confession I have to live, no matter how interesting the new job seems to be, or how stressfull my actual working situation is.(Maybe Sooner or later I will find a job that fits to me !).
By the same token, I am also loathe to pay tax for a church or religion whose sentiments and ideas I do not share, furthermore I think the money is better invested here.

That is the actual state of affairs and this is all I wished to say.

Thank you !
