What kind of religions are out there? I would like to find out as much as possible about different religions.

Posted by   + Show Post


My SO and I were talking this morning about going to church.

We aren't married but plan on getting married one day. He is a Catholic but hasn't been to church since he was a boy.

I was a Catholic but then turned Christian but I haven't gone to church since my son was baptised when he was 9 months old, he's now 7 years old.

We are thinking about going to a baptist church or a presbyterian church but we don't know anything about them.

Are there any groups on this site that would help me find the answers i'm looking for?

I know that there are sites that aren't reliable and I don't know where to find reliable information about this.

Anyone have any suggestions?

You can always visit LDS moms.  It's an open group, no application.   There's a sticky that has the basic beliefs in it.

Link is in my siggy

So how is your church? Is it formal or laid-back?

Love it!  I am a  Southern Baptist too :)

There are groups here on CafeMom; some require an application. I am in one (maybe the only one without an application). As for churches, it will be best if you and your family go visit the local ones; just because two churches may say "Baptist", it does not mean that they're alike. Some churches are more formal, while some are laid-back. I am a Southern Baptist Christian and our church is somewhat laid-back and modern; we have the drums, a piano, keyboard, and electric guitar. The Holy Spirit can get caught at any time. Yet, last year, when we worshipped with another Baptist church, our First Lady caught the Holy Spirit and that pastor tried to make her be quiet; we were looking at him like what is wrong with praising the Lord. Yet different strokes....So out of my long reply, please go visit some churches and trust your gut instincts; if something does not sit right with you, run. Yet if you feel comfortable, stay and be ready to worship. Best wishes on your upcoming marriage!

 We have a "traditional" service and a "contemporary" service.  The only difference is the traditional service has a full choir, people dress up just a little more, and the preacher wears a coat and tie.  The choir director may throw one or two hymns in with the praise choruses, but that's about it.   The contemporary service has a praise band (they rock out!), the pastor wears a polo shirt and khakis, and folks are just generally more laid back, but the sermon is exactly the same.  At our evening service, it's more of a classroom teaching atmosphere, and is very relaxed as well.
