I've been looking for a Church to call home. I live in Buchanan and have visited Jesus Saves Baptist Church and kinda enjoyed it. The concern is the pastor smokes cigarettes I know and may drink a little beer. Pastor's name is Teddy Hill and he seems alot different I guess you could say. I don't want to get tide up in some weird cult. Please give me some feed back if anyone knows more information about this Church please.

Wow, I feel sorry for any church you go to if you're going to publicly criticize the pastor for smoking cigarettes. You should be ashamed of yourself for accusing a church of being "some wierd cult", and should definitly ask God to forgive you for judging his children. Sounds to me like you could find something wrong with any church you attend so good luck finding one that meets all your expectations.

Ok so far all the comments to this guy has been completely judgemental and negative, regardless of what the OP wrote you should try and help him not chastise him for trying to find a CHURCH.

If anyone is being 'judgemental' it's the OP. He's being chastised for being a dumbass, if he doesn't want repercussions he shouldn't write stupid things like calling a church a 'cult' because the preacher smokes or enjoys a cold brew. Use your brain,'Rusty'

I wasn't defending him but maybe insulting him isn't the best way to lead him to be a Christian. That is my issue with believers now adays...

I would not want to attend a church knowing that the pastor smokes and drinks. I am not being judgemental but my preferance. I could not look up to a pastor who did these things. I also like a stable church that has roots. These fly by night groups that can't get along and start their "what's going on now" churches make the rules up as they go. There is only one set of church rules and it's called the Bible. I am sorry that you think church is for the weak minded. Now days it takes a strong minded person to be a Christian and stand up for what they believe. I am sure I will get bashed for my opinion, but so be it. I am a Christian, have been a Christian all my life and will continue to be a Christian as long as I live.

You should not be bashed for your prefrences or your beliefs. no one should. whatever their belief or lack there of. People tend to want to be with like minded individuals.There is nothing wrong with that. But to put private life and or critizing someone just because they are not as you want them to be IS wrong rude and socially unacceptable. If you are a believer in CHRIST and his teachings shouldnt love kindness and forgiveness be your guides? As decent human beings shouldnt we show kindness compassion and forgiveness?

Always rememebr, that even Jesus did not like the Temple, AKA Church. The Church is evil. It is where Satan works out of, so he can mislead people.

Bottom line is the church is for people wanting to transform their lives. Jesus gave His life for it. In the end do you really want to take the chance to see if you are right or wrong. Eternity is a long time to spend in hell. Find a church that truly believes in the bible and you will truly find a place to worship.

Ask God to put you in a church family that will help you to grow closer to him. From my own experiences being in the church scene for 30 years i've learned a lot. Hanging out with several denominations, leadership in a nondenomination, seen church splits, sat in home churches, and helped start a church.. I have learned alot. The thing that is most important above everything is your relationship with God. When disaster strikes, not once but several times R U STILL SEEKING HIM? The churches have their good and bad just like everything else.. just make sure ur focus stays on the most important...JESUS! God bless you all!

I am a member of Jesus Saves Baptist Church and I have been for about three years now. I do not know where whistling dixie dude is getting his information from but I personally know Teddy Hill and he is a great man of God. Our church IS NOT a cult. It is however a great house of worship. This sounds to me like someone is disgruntled with our church and is trying to give us a bad name and spread false information. I do not know who you are but I will pray for you.
