We have had all sorts of diversity at out local Church and as far as I can tell they were all welcomed and treated well. Some were given food, clothing and even pharmacy items. Prayed with them.
Christianity has been under attack from the Liberal Media and Homosexuals, who do not like what God's word says. Ever notice how the Network News rarely gives any Christian news unless it is something negative? We are founded as a Christian Nation. 95% of the Founding Fathers were worshiping Christians. Every School had Bibles and most Christian Churches were Schools during the week. Now the mainstream media tries to keep saying we were secular.
For Sure! Look how Tim Tebow has been treated by the NFL and the media.

I haven't attended a lot of different churches, but my church doesn't exclude anyone. Everyone is welcomed and treated like family, no matter what their circumstances are. It's hard for me to believe that there are very many churches out there that would go against the Word of God and exclude people and mistreat people.
Sadly a lot of Churches have just turned into a social event.

It may be hard for you to believe because you fit the proper mold.Try being anyone outside the sanctioned mold for a week and see how you get treated. According to the story Jesus would have been considered a "hippy" or "freak" of his day. Most certainly did not fit into the social norm.
I wonder what kind of drugs they would try to put Jesus on if he showed up today.
If He aint showing up at your Church there is something wrong.

The Good News
What if I tell them I dont keep a log of how often they go to church, of how much or how little they pray, how often theyve not met the standard and let me down, made promises that they dont keep? What if I tell them they can stop beating themselves up? That they can stop being so jumpy around me?
What if I tell them they are righteous, with my righteousness, right at the moment they follow me? What if I told them their sins are forgiven present, past and for infinity? What if I told them being the CHURCH is not about performance or pretending to be someone who they are not?
What if I tell them Im crazy about them? What if I tell them, even if they run to the ends of the earth and do the most horrible, unthinkable things, that when they come back to me they do not have to eat slop with pigs because they are unworthy? According to scripture, Id receive them with tears, have the most delicious steaks from the fatted calf and we would have a party!!!
What if I tell them that I am their Savior, theyre going to heaven no matter what--its a done deal?

I would like to know which bible you get that from, because it's not in my bible.
To your point, Matthew 25 is a good read.

If one loves God, their neighbor, and themselves... surely they will help others. I think you are right, it should not be out of obligation, but out of unconditional love (agape).

The phrase "God helps those who help themselves" is often mistaken as scriptural, but it appears nowhere in the Bible. Some Christians have criticized the expression as being contrary to the Bible's message of God's grace. A variant of the phrase, however, can be found in the Quran (13:11).

What do you mean by slamming Christ-ian-ity?

Christianity (from the Ancient Greek translation &#935;&#961;&#953; &#963;&#964;&#972; &#962;, Christos of the Hebrew &#1502;&#1464;&#15 13;&#1460;&#1473;& #1497;&#1495;&#1463;, Maa&#7717;, meaning "the anointed one"[1] and the Latin suffixes ian and -itas) is a monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as presented in the New Testament.

Why would you slam the teachings of Jesus Christ?

Why do you say "Also, Jesus was pretty much a socialist .. Come to terms with that." What do you mean by that?

Story is false, but remember that God helps those who helps themselves. As Christians, we aren't obligated to give to questionable individuals.
We shouldn't judge anyone.

You know what Socialism is right? I only said "pretty much" because in theory he had no actual political disposition . However I think we can all clearly agree that he was no capitalist. Maybe communist,but a lot closer to true socialist.

That being said, we have never really witnessed a "true" socialist society in action in my opinion, so to compare what I am trying to say to any of those models would be inaccurate also.

Social Ism = People Ism..Jesus Was pro people and clearly anti capital .

I honestly think he was closest to an Anarchist , however I am quite sure you guys are not ready for that conversation. A clear demonstration of how your society is an affront to your religion should suffice.
