You can't call one a cult without coloring them all the same way. You just don't like them because they're a competing cult. From the outside, they ALL look just as wacky.

I was wondering why they was doing all the facelifts and clean up projects at this church - Its showtime!

You can put lipstick on a pig, but eventually it washes off.

Neither Paving, Paint, Steeples, Carpet, nor anything else done there can cover the horrible things done to people in the past. What needs to change here is the hearts of its membership.

You can do all the things on the outside to make it look good, but what counts is what is on the inside and the inside of this church is filth!

This is the most hateful church I have ever visited!

It was a conference they had at the church and those were the speakers attending the service.

They are doing facelifts to the church for the conference since they had alot of out of town people coming in. The church needed those facelifts and it was all paid for and done by the church members. I know this church has a bad rap from the past but it has changed alot since Pastor Josh took the pulpit. The drama has left and there are alot of new faces at the church. Its growing and moving forward. Its just a shame that this community wont let it grow and wish it well as it tries to do so. Maybe you guys should visit the church like I have its really a nice church with very nice people.

The Bible teaches us that the only true change comes from repentance - not from changing pastors, carpet, wall color, signs out front, and church names.

The bible also says to test you wife for adultery, take her to the local priest who will give her poison. If the poison doesn't kill her she's innocent and if it does kill her she got her punishment.

The bible is immoral and therefore following it's tenets is immoral as well.

You stupid sociopath. Nobody cares about you or what you think. You just want to hurt people. You want to shut people down who don't think like think. It would be disgusting to be you. You sick prick.

,

Yes, it gave those instructions to shame husbands who foolishly charged their wives with adultery because the test made the men look like idiots when their wives did not explode from drinking the dusty water. Of course, the idiotic men, just like you, never did realize that the entire procedure was given simply to force them to give up their stupid ways. They just made themselves look like idiots in public and demonstrated to their neighbors that they were worthless husbands who persecuted their wives. Kind of like stupid people who blame the Bible without comprehending it in the slightest.

It's a real shame that this church is the resin I don't believe in God at all. After watching the people behave the way the "Christians" in this church do, I'd rather go to hell.

Dude, Chris ...
You shouldn't consign yourself to hell just because a small minded group of crazy Christians (those people aren't Christians) turn you away from having faith in yourself, your human destiny and your world view.
No church should have the power to make you feel hopeless in this life. It is your life YOUR LIFE.

You are here to add your contribution and do the best with the talents, resources and time that you have been granted. You are not to be harassed or blocked by anyone else's idea of what your human destiny is to be. You are perfect just the way God made you.

So, use your time and the gifts you have been blessed with and don't do anything about that church that you have been injured by. Be yourself. Forgive yourself. Enjoy your life. Make your best contributions and disregard what anyone else wants to foist upon you. You are here for a wonderful reason adn people around you need you and your talents. Help them and help yourself and your family,friends and loved ones. Just don't waste your time on fools that are not Christlike and stay away from pretenders.

Seriously if this church is what made your mind up then your mind was already made before. This church has changed a lot and has been around 180 years and just like everything else it's going to get talked about. But I wish others would visit to see for your self and not by this website.

Chris I hate that you feel this way. You have to live right yourself you can't watch other people and let them influence you. Just because someone say they are a Christian doesn't make it true. God will judge them in the end.

Just Google "Prays Mill Scandal" and "marc driscoll wartburgwatch" Driscoll is the leader that the current pastor Josh Buice follows. He pushes Driscoll theology and 9Marks group to membership.
Question

Isn't this the church that says to anyone wanting to exit its membership that you can not leave in good standing without the whole church membership voting yes in majority to allow you to leave the church and If they vote no then if you go to another church they will not recommend you for transfer.

Also before you can be join the church and considered as a member, they "require" you to attend weeks of " New Member " training classes Even if you have been a Christian all your life.

Isn't that like a CULT?
So over the mud throwing

OMG people this is whats wrong with this world is that everyone is hear say he said she said no one wants to go and get an opinion for themselves.

If you leave this church you leave this church no voting or church proposal is necessary. You just leave like any other church.

Also yes you go through a new members class but its to get to know the church and activities they offer along with just a basic guideline of the churchs beliefs being Southern Baptist. But heres the deal the hip Church of Chapel Hill does the same class as well for all their new members so its just not this church. Please stop throwing the mud and attend the church and see/make your own opinion. Every church as a past and has issues so be it go to attend and worship with the Lord not with social settings and standards.
Grow up people!
