  • No, Not at all! What is important is your relationship with your God, not your relationship with man made churches or religious organizations!

  • Nope. If you don't need a church then don't go.

  • The reason I ask is because my mom wants my daughters "dedicated" this Sunday and I don't. How do I tell her no without her getting pissed?

  • You tell her how you feel about organized churches and how that doesn't effect your love of GOD!

  • Gin - This is YOUR daughter, not your mothers. I would simply tell her NO. This is my daughter and I don't want her to be dedicated, it makes me uncomfortable... She doesn't have to agree or like it, and she will get over it.

  • No. I think the organizations that head churches are just as fallible as we are. Your daughters should make their own decisions to commit to a church only when they are old enough to understand all parts of the church and be aware of what it means.

  • It's hard because she will hold more than this over my head. We're supposed to have a gathering Sunday which SHE is hosting and I'm just afraid if I tell her no she's gonna throw all that back in my face. She tends to attach everything together for some reason.
