I just went to a presbiterian church yesterday (or should I say hangout...which they call it that, they do not call it a church). Anyways, I was raised Southern Baptist and was taught that any other religion, even if it was Christian was wrong.
Now after attending one of their sermons or what have you, I realized they just worship like everyone else, but they allow you to do what moves you when you feel the presence of Jesus and such. I was surprised and scared at first because I had no idea what was going on.
I heard that they spoke in tongues, but didn't understand, but yesterday I found out. It isn't all that different from regular churches like I use to grow up in. It is like a laid back church where you are free from order and anyone can preach to anyone, which is pretty cool, because you never know what someone might have to offer you.
I am happy that I got to experience it first hand, because there is nothing better to educate yourself about something than experiencing it for yourself

I was going to say "that doesn't sound Presbyterian" lol! I think it's good to experience different beliefs and to gain a better understanding of them, especially to show us that they really aren't bad people after all.
