BSI am going to bare my soul and unburden myself for a moment here...
I was raised in the Church, I found Church to be a safe place, comforting, a place of love.
In the past 30 years I have watched as Church became political...no longer is Gods love in those buildings. They teach hatred, intolerance, bigotry...not a shred of compassion to be found inside those walls or the people who sit in the pews. Oh sure, they tout themselves to be good Christians doing good works...ahhh but not in the way the Bible commands them to. There is always a price for their supposed good works and many are harmed in the process, while the "good Christians" pat themselves on the back for a job well done..
It saddens me that my grand children will never know the comfort, peace and love once found in a Church. I am thankful that spiritual fulfillment can be found without a Church or Religion. At least they can be taught the true meaning of Gods Word and not the twisted version now being preached all over.
You so called Christians should be ashamed of what you have turned into.
I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE OF ONE RIGHT IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD
St.Bede in Ingleside corner of Wilson and RT59 ( Catholic Church )
if you are from RL you know exactly where that is.
Once a month they feed the poor. A hot meal
no preaching ( except a dinner blessing ) no politics involved
no ID checks no nothing.
they have other stuff they do such as giveway clothes, blankets, can goods even furniture.
Cool Food Pantry in Ingleside less then a mile from RL
off of RT134 east of Wilson road
Part of a Lutheran Church dont know the name.
I know of about six more places in Lake County
all connected to various churches not the same religions either
all doing good work in your area. None of them push politics
not on their workers or those they serve.
you should be ashamed of the hate against churches you allowed in your soul
look instead at the truth
not just the deeds but into the souls of those who are serving the lord.
they could use your help.
