  • That's really odd. JMO though.

  • That is pretty crappy, imo. I wouldn't even want to belong to a group like that where you have to prove anything.

  • I would find a different bible study group, that doesn't sound like one I would like to join. My guess is they are discriminating about who they let in or not. SAD!

  • well that is pretty dumb since you might be stuck somewhere with no access to a church and the internet is your prime place to get some felowship.

  • Yeah sounds like you are better off avoiding that group completely. They sound rather judgemental which kind of defeats the purpose of a bible study grroup. Hmmm maybe that should be their first topic.

  • Seriously?!? I would find another group, or even make your own if you have the time!

  • shame on them. some people don't attend church (not that it's a bad thing IMO). But they shouldn't require you to.

  • I have a pretty good guess as to why...besides plain ignorance. They have determined for themselves that some Christians aren't truly Christians (like, ahem, they might be Mormons, etc.) and they don't want to be defiled or risk being brainwashed by the devil's minions. Who wants to be a part of a group like that anyway?

  • There are lots of different groups for Christian women on CafeMom. I'm sure you'll find one that is much more welcoming.
