Cult or not? Their members are some of the strangest people I have ever met. I swear they are brain washing people out there by the dozens. And they have been for years. Now I'm sure their members will find this thread and want to pray for me, but I want them to know I'm praying for them. Stop brain washing people with your 'gospel'.

I was thinking about going there to see what kind of church it was. I heard it was a very good church. Nothing like what you are talking about. Are you talking about the big one on the highway?

You might want to check the definition of "cult." Brainwashing? You might want to look that one up, too. I have attended LCC - it isn't my cup of tea, but there is nothing that occurs in that body that resembles "cult" behavior or "brainwashing" activities. Their members work in conjunction with other churches and youth groups. Members are not required to cut ties with friends and family who are not members of LCC, they do not have a "prophet," and members' personal lives are not micromanaged by their spiritual leaders. LCC has a loving and devoted congregation. People like to call them a "cult" because they are large. That is sloppy and inaccurate use of the terminology.

A large congregation @ a church usually means that's where God can be found.

I have been there a few times and enjoyed the "energy" of the place. You can tell they are true believers. I prefer a smaller church like I was raised in. But if my choices were limited, I would go back.
Oh they do have a pretty cool festival every year for kids and their families. It is free, as well.
