Yeah it did. It's one of the main reasons I don't attend church anymore either..

It's just hard to find a decent Church in which the congregation is not judgmental..

If I could find one, I would probably become an active member in that Church like I once was. I would love to raise my daughter inside of a Church environment.. but not inside one full of hypocrits and judgmental people..

Thank you so much for taking up for me in the forum with "yes". I appreciate it =)

I was not trying to be mean to her or say that she could not state her opinion. The only reason I said she was judging britt was because she stated that Britt enjoyed the posts from hater..

I dont know. I just wish people would not be so quick to judge others. I guess we all judge somewhat.. but I'd rather this become a place to voice your opinions on different topics and situations rather than to judge others.

Oh well though =)

I love you girl & appreciate your friendship more than you could ever know!

God will take you where he wants you. It may not be church in the sense that we think of church. If you look at Jesus life, he didn't tell people that they had to attend, and he for sure didn't care what "it looked like". What it is, is all that matters to God. Who cares what people think, what does God think? I'm positive Jesus would have given you guys a ride home.
It's a shame the church has done more to drive people away from God, then to bring people to him. God save us from Religion.

I just wanted to say something in reply to your comment. I use to attend church at West Corbin Baptist Church on Gordon Hill.
It was actually the last Church I was a member of before I discontinued my attendance to Church.
When I was a member at West Corbin, we had a very large youth group. At the head of our youth group was our youth minister (I will not post any names)
He held MANY events for us. At least three to four times a week, if not more often, I was at some event concerning our youth group. & we all thought he was a GREAT guy..
Every week he held a youth service. After youth service, as a group, the majority of us (including our youth minister) would go out to eat somewhere.
This specific evening, at youth service, me & two of my friends asked our youth minister for a ride with him to Wendy's (where the group was eating that night) after the service. He agreed to take us..
After the service, everyone started to leave for Wendy's. Our minister, we were told, had a meeting with the preacher prior to going to eat. So the three of us girls (we were 13 years old) waited outside the Church for him for approximaletly 45 minutes. Everyone had left, including the pastor, while our youth minister was still inside..
After awhile, he finally stepped outside the doors. When first seeing us he stated "What are you all still doing here?" We informed him that we were waiting on him for our ride to Wendy's, but we assumed everyone was done eating by now, & we needed a ride home...
He became very irritated and angry with us and began to yell at us. He said that he COULDNT give us a ride home b/c it would "look bad". We didn't quite understand (keep in mind we were 13 years old) what the big deal was. He continuted to scream and said that he had to have another guy in the car with him in order to have three girls b/c it just didn't look right. What if someone in Corbin seen him? Then they could make up rumors about him & three thirteen year old girls...
We were bewildered, especially while watching him continue to yell at us and get in his car and drive away. He left us standing there, in the empty church parking lot, without a ride or phone. The church doors were locked (evidentally he locked them on the way out) & we had no way of getting home.
We eventually walked home.. & after that incident, I never attended that Church again..
Or any other one for that matter.. I am a Christian, however, & I know I SHOULD attend Church. It's just so hard to find a Church in which the congregation is caring & nonjudgmental..
Needless to say, he is no longer the youth minister there...
.. just figured I'd share that experience with you all..
I used to go to West Corbin Baptist as a kid also. I am now 39 and miss going to Church. I went there when Bro Steve Ross was the pastor and he was a great guy. After he was called to leave we got a pastor that didnt really care about our youth like Bro Steve did. We had a camping trip planned one weekend and it started raining. The new pastor( not gonna mention anyones name) cancelled the trip. When I asked him Sunday morning why he cancelled the trip he said he didnt want to sleep on a bus with 20 wet stinking kids in the rain. I thought that was very unchristian like for him to say that. He could have had us up to the basement in the parsonage or taken us bowling or something(we didnt have the activities bldg then). When your a teenage boy in this town and you look forward to your Church activities and then they get cancelled because someone didnt want to be around wet kids it hurts. I just wanted to share that with you. I quit going to church there after that. I just lost faith in people after that I guess. I have never lost faith in God but I am very much backsliden and need to get back into Church soon.

... I completely agree as well =)

It is a shame that you cannot find a good Church around this area..

& its a shame that you hear various stories in which the congregation has drove people away from attending their sermons..

Life is changing, as we know it.. even religion. How many of you can recall the past in which everyone in the congregation inside of the church was friendly and nonjudgmental toward anyone/everyone?

I could tell so many different horror stories of how I have been treated by various preachers, deacons, ect. but I prefer not to share these stories in order to refrain from dragging someone's good name through the dirt..

I just wish religion/church was the same as it was years ago..

You guys who have stopped going to church might like to get involved in some of the activities at Grace on the Hill United Meth. Church if you live in Corbin. There's lots of activities for teens going on there...evening sports...mission activiites, etc. as well as a welcoming pastor Tim Thompson.

I have attended a few sermons at United Methodist. Tim is a good preacher & the services I attended were with his daughter who use to be a good friend of mine.

However, I prefer a small baptist/pentecostal Church. I'd like to find a small church with a small congregation that are not judgmental.

I was raised in a small baptist Church is why I prefer a small Church.

I'm not against large Churches whatsoever.

Just thought I'd add that..

This is an appropriate place to see Tim Thompsons name--"the most hippocrital preacher". The only one worse than him is Ed Garr.

Me either. Besides being a hippocrit, he lies and he's extremely impressed with himself. He is always claiming to be a "man of integrity". In my experience, it means a lot more for other people to say that about you. If you have to claim it for yourself, well, somethings wrong with that picture.

Slightly off-topic (I'm good for that) but back when i was in HS, there was a girl I REALLY wanted to go out with. I asked like 3 times and she refused me. I guess I finally wore her down and she told me she would IF I went to church with her. I don't remember the church...it was way out in the boonies. Go there and within 5 minutes of the service, people were rolling on the floor and speaking in tongues...shouting...screaming ...crying (My dream girl included). I kept waiting for someone to pull out the box of snakes....
Needless to say...we DID NOT go out at MY choosing after that :)
Carry on.
Look... I am Holiness and I believe in all of that... I have read a couple of your comments and its always talking about Holiness and snakes.. what is the deal? You must be obsessed with it.... Don't judge us.

People will always let you down. For one because people are flawed. Nobody is perfect. Please don't let people be the reason you don't attend church. Maybe you are the person that church needs at that moment. They may be facing difficult times. Every church will have it's down times because it's full of people who are not perfect. That's why we pray for eachother and try to help one another out. I have been going to my church for 13 years and I love my church. Yes I have been angry with people in my church for some reason or another and yes there are people in my church that are not good people and they only go there to be seen and they don't even have a relationship with Jesus, but they need prayer and love too. Probably more than the people that don't even go to church. If I had let those people stop me from going to church I would have missed out on so many blessings; mission trips, seeing other people come to Christ, awesome concerts and youth trips. I will not let bad people steal my joy. For that one terrible person that goes to my church there are 50 wonderful friends who love me. You will never find a perfect church because there are no perfect people. The only hope we have is that we serve a perfect God that loves us so much that he had his only child come down here and live with us and then die a horrible death for us. Could you ever send your child to die for people that hated you? No one has the right to judge anybody or any pastor unless you have NEVER done anything wrong yourself. And a sinless person hasn't been around for almost 2000 years. Church isn't about people or even about you. It's about worshiping an awesome God. Church is all about bringing glory to God, not making yourself feel good. But bringing glory to God should automatically make you feel good. It's about a relationship with Jesus. And in the end the only thing that is going to matter is you and God. You can't blame anything on anybody else.

P.S. Please don't bash other churches or denominations on here. If they are having a hard time your harsh words only bring them down more. Get up and get involved and try to make a difference.

i understand what you are saying...
& i agree that there are no perfect churches...
i never blamed GOD for the wrong done to me, & i shouldn't have let it keep me out of church, that i agree too...
that's why i have expressed intrest at times on new churches....

noone would've thought anything about it - unless their mind was also in the gutter....i have more to this, but we'll save it for when we're sittin' around talkin'....
i have horror stories as well, which we can also share later, but people like that are why I don't go to church anywhere either....
but i'm sorry, i know it really hurt you & your friends...

I will whole-heartedly agree that the youth minister should have let the girls make a phone call and waited for someone to pick them up. However, he was right for not putting 3 girls in the car with him! You obviously have never worked with children/youth. That doesn't mean that someones mind is in the gutter... a preacher I once listened to told all the ladies during a sermon not to get offended that he would not give them a ride with just him in his car... if they neeed help, he would get it but out of respect for his wife, he would never let another woman in the car with just him... people will say anything this day & time. You could end up on Topix! lol seriously though, you are putting yourself at risk by doing that.
Jesus loves you

That was terrible, you were just kids, no wonder you don't attend church. I hate that you had a bad experience like that, that man was a devil in disguise. Don't let that man knock you out of Heaven though. It breaks my heat to see people hurt in church like that. A true Christian would not have acted that way. I FINALLY found a good church to attend, they are less judgemental then anywhere I have ever been. Things like this is why there are so many people dying lost. I don't believe in judging anyone, I think God will do a better job than I could. You would be more than welcome to go where I do, but it is quite a ways from Corbin. Just remember Jesus would not have acted that way!! May God bless you in your walk with God!!
