You sound like a bit of a snob yourself. Telling people that they should spend their money to do the things that make you feel good is pretentious. I do not belong to a country club either, but that does not mean that those who do are not excellent, charitable members of this community. I seriously doubt that you give every dollar of your disposable income to those who "can't afford the basics in life". If you do then I commend you for it, but if you do not then it seems like you're seeing a speck in other the eye of others and ignoring the plank in your eye.Do something good with your lives and money instead of indulging yourselves. You certainly don't exemplify true Christian behavior.
Anyone who is a member of a country club is no one I want around me. And I could afford it. I choose to help people who can't afford the basics in life.
I've been exposed to plenty of snobbery at churches in my day. The difference is that the religious crowd tend to be the worst hypocrites. Openly talking about the great things they do and how they tithe every week and then talking about the people who don't dress as nice as them at church. Also the noon Sunday shifts are always the worst shifts for anyone in the food service industry. It seems like if you're truly looking to help the poor, maybe increasing your tips for the people who serve food is one way.
If you can afford the country club and do not join, that's fine. If you're driving a nice car, living in a nice home, wearing nice clothes, have a nice computer, cable tv or enjoy eating out every week then you're a hypocrite. You're spending money on the things you like, yet, condemning those who spend money doing the things that do not interest you.
