I no longer do. I have been to so many different churches I can't even keep track.
Here is why: I feel the churches I've gone to are too hypocritical. They claim to be a religion of love. Yet they condemn people (homosexuals, etc) and cast them out. I was taught that God loves us, even the sinners. So why are most so against homosexuals? I believe that if one has TRULY felt Gods love, they can't help but love the same.
They teach that God is the only one who can judge us, yet they use religious beliefs as a way to keep people from being in sin. It isn't up to them. It's between God and the sinner.
And what upsets me the most is the misinformation I've heard spread from the lips of the pastor to the congregation.
I nannied for a Pagan woman in Washington. She became like a mother to me. She is caring, smart, nice, a wonderful person. Not long after, our pastor gave us a "teaching" about pagans. How they were demonic, evil people who use magic to wreak havoc. I was furious. That was the last time I went.
A more personal example of this uncaring, hypocritical behavior is my mother in law. I love her dearly but she has some issues. She is very much opposed to gay marriage and gay people in general. When I asked why and she said because it is a sin against God. I reminded her of when marriage wasn't considered valid unless the woman was a virgin (she wasn't a virgin) and I reminded her having a child out of wedlock is also a sin (she got pregnant with my husband before she got married.
Please bear in mind that these are my personal thoughts, beliefs, and experiences. I'm sure not ALL churches are this way but I've yet to find one.
Do you attended church regularly?? Why or why not?
