Why does it seem that all the town's prominent, wealthy, well known, socially elite, movers and shakers go to one of these two churches?
Anybody that is anybody in this town goes to Central or Grace. There are a few pretty well known folk that go to Immanuel, but then again, Immanuel formed from in-fighting at Central.
If you don't go to one of these churches, apparently you aren't very important. Why is this?

Because this is what organized religion has turned into. Especially in small bible belt towns like ours. Organized religion is the root of 95% of the worlds problems today.

CGS, I agree with you wholeheartedly.

And all they seem to do is fuss, bicker, and cast aspersions among themselves. That's precisely why Immanuel is a b*st*rdized version of Central. Half of Central was demonizing it's pastor, Terry Williams, and that half started it's own church. That church ended up hiring a man that had an affair with a woman in the church and paying for her to have an abortion.

Grace United Methodist on the big hill . Well, it would take two hours to reflect on their dirty laundry. Their pastor named to the city's ethical board is an absolute joke and an abomination to every person in this town who tried to live with a hint of integrity.

CGS is correct. Organized religion is responsible for most of the world's problems and makes for one big soap opera.

Don't go to GOTH unless u have money because the pastor there, tim Thompson, only listens to the people with the money.

he is so afraid of losing his job he panders to them.

Oh... and someone needs to tell him that God doesn't appreciate it when he uses the churchs computers to look at porn. What an addict!!!!

I've heard the porn rumors from a good number of people that go there. Must be a powerful addiction. I hope the rumors are unfounded, but preachers that feign holy living tend to be scoundrels in many different areas. I pray this man receives freedom from whatever darkness tortures his soul.

It's not my place to judge, but I will give my reason, my opinion... This is exactly why I don't go to church. Yes, the bible speaks of tithing, but churches most anymore are ALL about money and little about God... They're about status, materialistic things... I know Central's a lot like that and I don't know much about GOTH, but I'm pretty sure it's like that too. Most big, fancy churches are.

I believe in God. I love God, but I'm just too leery of churches. It's not the religion that's bad, but it's the people of the religion that makes it bad. My relationship is personal with God and people like that shouldn't speak for the religion itself. And the sad thing is, these people don't realize what they're doing.

I have followed the rumors about GOTH and Pastor Tim. He is really getting a bad wrap! There is no facts to support the stupid claims being made against him. There are lots of people who tell me that he has been to hospital to see them, visited their family, helped someone in need. This is a great leader, but a few bad apples want to make him look bad...."let him without sin cast the first stone."

Dear ethics,
You talk about some good things tim has done.
Now, let me give you a real bad thing tim did that overrides some of the good you say he's done.
Tommy l showed me that c&d action tim got against him, and no where in it were there any explanations
that tell why tim got the action against him.
In fact, tommy told me that when he & ed became friends again after ed apologized to him, that ed had tommy over to eat lunch with him at his house, and that several people whose name was on the action that visited ed on occasion tommy confronted them about their name being on that action, and they ended up apologizing to him, and said, "I DIDN"T KNOW MY NAME WAS ON IT," and I"M SO SORRY, and PLEASE FORGIVE ME. Tommy did forgive them, but not before he SCOLDED them real good, which I didn't blame him one bit!! He even told me that there were people's name on that action that he didn't even know from adam.
So ethics, how WRONG is this? I'll tell you how wrong it is. IT'S DESPICABLE!!!

Money.

Religion, especially now in the U.S., is a business.

You can't stand the fact that he's absolutely right. Religion is all about money and control!!!
