    Praise Him Any Where

    I give praise to my God where ever and whenever I like. He has always been there for me and has pulled me through a lot of situations where I thought there was no way out. I don't go to any kind of man made church because it's just that man made. I can't say that I have always...

    I Believe In God But Not Everything I'm Told

    I wasn't that raised with that great of a religious upbringing to begin with. My mother would sing hymns and force us to go to a church of the friend of our familys when she was on her way to work and never went herself. Unless you count alcohol to be holy water of course. I went...

    Too Different To Accept...

    I still don't know why I was not accepted in church. I was a single mother and well.... I guess I was judged on that. I went with my mom and people would talk to her but they did not talk to me. I was ignored. My mom did not mind much. She enjoys attention.I used to try and dress...

    I Believe In God But Don't Go To Church Because.........

    I believe in God but don't go to church because my upbringing wasn't that religious. So I found that when I started to go church about a year ago I didn't know the Bible and hymns as much as the other people there and it was rather hard to fit in. Furthermore most people in my...

    Ok, even though I'm a graduate of a stringent, challenging long-term residential women's ministry (three times I completed the program, in fact), for the last approximate three years I've simply not attended church. I think perhaps I need the authority and mentorship as well as...

    Want To

    While I do not go to church and still believe in God I do want to go but my parents just can't be bothered with it most times. They say we need to go but they never actually take me and my younger brothers.
