Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club realizes that many of its members come from a lifestyle that included the use of harmful substances like tobacco, drugs and alcohol in the past. As Christians we strongly believe that drugs are out of line completely with a holy lifestyle, and as a disciple we agree not to ever use illicit drugs. Further, we recognize that alcohol and tobacco are not helpful to our witness, may cause a brother to stumble, are unhealthy, and we do not allow the use of alcohol or tobacco while representing the club in your cut, or soft colors. We do recognize the freedom of believers to make a personal choice in the privacy of their own homes when they are out of the cut or soft colors, on alcohol and tobacco.

In order to help the brothers who wish to live a drug free life style, we have established a drug free leadership on a national and state level.

To recognize any full patch member who has been a previous drug and/or tobacco user, and is now drug free for a minimum of 90 days, a 1x4 inch DRUG FREE patch is earned. Should a member fail in this area of their life by using drugs or tobacco, this patch must be cut off for 90 days, and notify their Charter and State Nazarite for free counseling and prayer. According to the American Heart Association, the "nicotine addiction has historically been one of the hardest addictions to break." The pharmacological and behavioral characteristics that determine tobacco addiction are similar to those that determine addiction to drugs such as heroin and cocaine.

Any DRUG FREE member with six months clean and sober can take the 43 Nazarite fast, shown below, to earn the 43 Nazarite 1x4 patch. Fasting is the time of prayer between a man and God. While it may be that the requirements of the Nazarite fast have no implications on your status as a Christian, we believe that dedicating this fast to God is a way of showing that you take the drug free life style seriously. Additionally, to wear this patch, one must take a solemn vow before God to abstain from the use of alcohol, tobacco and illicit drugs, for life, in the presence of an existing Nazarite patch holder. While Disciple recognizes that many members may not use drugs alcohol or tobacco, these patches are designated for those who have struggled with and overcome these addictions. Should a member fail in this area of their life, this patch must be cut off for 90 days, and notify their Charter and State Nazarite for free counseling and prayer. 

43 NAZARITE Officers
Any 43 Nazarite patch holder may be considered for a Nazarite leadership position, on a charter, state or national level. These leadership positions function as a local Disciple sponsor for men who are struggling with alcohol, tobacco, drug, or other types of addiction. Charter level 43 Nazarites answer to state 43 Nazarite leadership, who answer to national leadership. Individualized training is provided for these positions. The position names for these are: CHARTER NAZARITE, STATE NAZARITE, NATL NAZARITE.

43 NAZIRITE FAST: minimum of 30 days, duration is ‘as the Lord leads you’. Special exemptions may be made by the National Nazarite.
1. Make a formal swearing of an oath of service to God [Numbers 6:2] to abstain for life from Alcohol, Nicotine/Tobacco, and Illicit Drugs
2. Abstain from drinking wine and fermented liquor, including vinegar derived from either wine or any fermented liquor, and will abstain from eating grapes fresh or dried or eat anything that comes from the vine [Numbers 6:3-4].
3. Let his hair grown uncut for the length of the vow [Numbers 6:5] (this does not necessarily include the beard but may by choice)

4. For the entire period of the vow he must not come in contact with a (human) corpse.  He is to remain ritually clean and cannot defile his ritual cleanliness even in the event a parent or sibling dies [Numbers 6:7].

If it is serious enough to bring up, then it gets brought up TO THAT BROTHER, IN PERSON, OR ON THE PHONE. Differing viewpoints is wonderful. We are diverse. However text messaging is not an appropriate medium for conflict resolution.

Resolution of Conflict: The defining attribute of Disciple is Unity. Other clubs may come and go, but Disciples stick together. Disciples DO NOT speak against each other, they SPEAK TO each other. Disciples do not speak against the leadership to other Disciples, they SPEAK TO the leadership. Disciples do not complain about the club to each other, they WORK TO make the club better BY TAKING THEIR COMPLAINT TO THE LEADERSHIP.

Taking offense at something another brother does or says to you is a sign of spiritual immaturity. If you are offended at another brother, or do not understand what they said or did, YOU GO TO THAT BROTHER. You DO NOT go to another brother and talk about what a brother did. YOU GO TO THAT BROTHER. Any Disciple who comes to you and talks bad about another brother is OUT OF LINE and IN REBELLION against the club and the Word of God. You must tell him that he is in the wrong, that he needs to GO TO THAT BROTHER and work it out.

WE FOLLOW WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT CONFLICT RESOLUTION If your brother wrongs you, go and show him his fault between you and him privately. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother. But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two others, so that every word may be confirmed and upheld by the testimony of two or three witnesses. If he pays no attention to them [refusing to listen and obey], tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a pagan and a tax collector. Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven. Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven. For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them. Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go? [As many as] up to seven times? Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy
times seven! (Matthew 18:15-22 AMP)

HOW DISCIPLES RESOLVE CONFLICT: Go to the brother. If you cannot resolve it, go to the brother again with the charter President or Vice President. If you cannot resolve it, the charter president takes it to the International President or Vice President. 

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES may result in being kicked out, or being made
a prospect. 

THIS IS A PLACE WHERE WE LIVE THE BIBLE, not just a place where we talk about it. The Bible takes strife, people who cause strife, spreading dissension among brothers, backbiting and argumentative people very seriously. God says it is an abomination to Him (Prov 6:19) to spread strife among brothers. 

I understand if you have never been in a place where you are expected to follow what the Bible says about conflict resolution, and where those rules are rigorously enforced. But we are going to keep this club from going the route of churches that split, MCs that fall apart etc etc. WE WILL BE UNIFIED and YOU WILL FOLLOW THE RULES or you will be educated the first time, kicked the second time to earn your place back by being mentored, and you will be removed completely from the club the third time. No exceptions. Get it, or get out. We are DOERS of the Word, not just HEARERS!
