    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 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 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...

    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...

    Believe In God

    I used to go to church mostly on an occasion like Christmas and Easter.  I  also go for a christening, communion, confirmation, wedding and funeral.  A few years ago, I went a few times with my mother-in-law and I have to admit, when I did go, it felt good. ...

    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...

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