Be honest, do you go to church for the socializing or for God?

    I concider myself pretty religious but the church is a major turn off. There are too many people that are two faced. They'll talk to me like we're the best of friends in church but outside of church I don't even get a hello!

    It really upsets me. To the point where I stay home and do my own studying. I feel I'm closer to God because I do my studying in a place that I'm in all the time. It's not just a building to go to that's devoted to God and his 'followers'.

    I go to a very large non-demoninational church. Don't know anyone, but I love it there.
  • Jess_703 2009/05/22 02:02:59
    None of the above

    I got to church to worship God and to enjoy fellowship with others. So i guess my answer is both. :)

    I try to be the strongest christian i can possible. I go for God and to be around people who will support me in a way that will help me reach him. Any one who goes just for friends is being selfish to God.

    Wow, I admire that. You are such a strong person. I get treated that way pretty often and sometimes it's true. They are two-faced most of the time. I think the fact you do not just give up on God because of people is the most awesome thing ever. I seriously admire that. Hey, tell me, what do you usually do while you study? Like, what's the procedure of it all????? ♥♥

    I have to be stong because of my beliefs. I'm gay and fight for acceptance though civilization and religion. Many people feel it's not even possible for me to be religious because I'm attracted to woman. I never thought it mattered and it seriously hurts when people say that me and all of those around me are going to hell because of me (many say my friends and family are only because they accept me).
    Most of my work is to find the truth. I read through the bible a lot and even have a few different translations at home to see where people can get confused from one set of translations to another. It's very rewarding to be able to continuiously find new translations, beliefs and what each passage means to different individuals.

    Not to be rude or anything ( please dont take it that way), why??? I honestly want to know your opinion. Why??
  • Nadrasta Paige 2009/05/17 20:32:35
    Nadrasta
    umm i just find it to be boring and i don't believe you have to go to church to get into heaven
  • Paige Nadrasta 2009/05/17 20:39:22
    Paige
    lol. Yes, sometimes it can be boring. lol Yeah, I dont believe you have to go to church to gt into Heaven either but I do believe you have to live for God. Ya know?? I know plenty of people who do not go to church and love Jesus and know Him and probably will go to Heaven. But God only knows their heart. So, like, what denomination are you??? Like, do you believe in God?? There are some churches which are actually really fun to attend. That also depends on the age group too.

    I'm Catholic but i don't like how the catholic church runs itself. I'm only 16 so that could be another factor of why i don't like it
  • Paige Nadrasta 2009/05/17 20:45:18
    Paige
    Oh, ok. I understand. lol Yeah, Catholic, I have heard is extremely boring. I am Penacostal/Baptist.
  • Nadrasta Paige 2009/05/17 20:50:35
    Nadrasta
    It's not even so much that its boring, its mainly the fact that they expect people to give them money even if they have a low income and sometimes i question where this money actually goes. I also don't like the fact that they don't allow preists to marry where as in other religions they are allowed

    I usually have a lot of fun at church. we do fun things. I am only 13 but I enter into worship. We have our own worship team (that are teens that sing) its up- beat Christian music and we have fun. We get 2 min and the begining of service to greet (hug) all our friends. It's alot of fun but we take worship and praise seriously. We love another. Yes, we socialize, they give us time for that but we all enter into God's glory too.
  • Nadrasta Paige 2009/05/17 20:52:22

    yeah that doesn't seem bad but they don't do anything like that at my church
