    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.

    Me Too..

    I love God but dont go to mainstream church. I have a little group that I go to a lot and I fellowship a lot with my friends. But "church" I have been called out of. It is too man made. Too man lead. Too much anger, hostility, hatred, judgment ... etc. Christians (I have...

    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...

    But As Of This Sunday, The 27th, I'm Going Back. Have To.

    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...

    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...

    Guilt Keeps Me Out of Church

    I think about church all the time.  I actually really want to go.  Unfortunately, I'm at a place in my life where I'm not living it as I feel I should. Knowing this, and feeling too weak to change my course at the moment, I'm loath to go to church.  How can I face...

    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...

    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...
