Lately I feel... like I'm shifting somehow. I do not feel myself pulling away from GOD, but I feel myself disliking most Christians I come across. Not all, my family are all Christians and most of them are more open minded and treat everyone with respect...but we passed by a church with their "Gay people are going to hell" signs...and I seriously wanted to pull over and rip them a new one. How is that helping ANYTHING? It isn't furthering the cause of the church, no gay people came to Christ through their actions, and it's making anyone who had ever even considered attending a church run in the other direction. The entire situation is making me upset...not just with this issue, but with the church in general. Is God REALLY this condemning? I do not know where I fit anymore. How can I serve and love God but dislike nearly every person I meet who claims to do the same? Ugh.Answer Question

I can completely relate. I wish there was a church where we really felt at home but we run into so many closed Christian minds. I'm no where near perfect, no one is, but I think too many people have forgotten that one sin is just as bad as another and we're all in this together. I've come to the realization that I don't have religion but I do have faith. I love he Gandhi quote by the way.

Yes. I like being a Christian, but for the longest time I was looking for something else, simply because I didn't like a lot of how Christians acted and a few things some churches taught. I thought "I don't want to be a part of this or raise my kids to be like that" but then I realized that I did believe in Jesus and his teachings and that I wanted to be a Christian, not any of the other things I was looking at and that I needed to be the change I wanted to see, no matter how small it is.
