I must admit I haven't been to church in years. About 6 years ago I started feeling the need to find a good church in my area and to get closer to the Lord. I had taken this job at a Glass Company where I worked for this woman. She would come into work on Monday talking about her Church and how much she loved Jesus. Almost in the same breathe she would start cussing, talking about her sex life and she treated me very very badly. She was so unbelievably mean to me it was unreal!! She cussed at me called me names told me I was stupid. I have to say she was the meanest woman I ever met and because she called herself a Christain that scared me from wanting to go to any church. It was a long time ago and I have since met a nice group of people who have invited me to their church so I am going to give it a try this Sunday. I think that is horrible what those ladies did to you. I do not blame you for leaving the church. If people start making you feel like that then its hard for you to do God's will.

I feel you pain.<br />
I have been a member of a couple of differrent churches for different reasons. God places good people in the church, and the devil often plants bad ones. The church is not a bad place and God is in your heart. How many times was Jesus persecuted and beguiled because of his belief, and what did he do... He forgave them. Please don't hate the church for one persons stupidity. Love God and go elsewhere!<br />
Bless you.
