I think the whole belief system is cultish there. They believe the entire world is evil and wicked, and they exist in a bubble, not accepting of any belief other than theirs, doesn't seem real rational.

Agreed. No church should be that way. We all live on this planet together, and everyone should try their best to accept one another and do good to others. I was always taught that the Christian way was to do good unto others and win people to the Faith through teaching and kindness, not through hatred, separation, and judgement...

Calvary is a joke...a BAD one at that. Just because its a preacher doing or saying something doesnt mean it is of God. I have heard some of the most horrible things come out of the preacher's mouth. Things NO God fearing, Bible abiding preacher should say. He also condoned the wrong doings of people for his personal or the school's gain...especially if they look like they have money or do work on Calvary's property for free. If Calvary was the only example I was shown for what Christianity is, I would NOT want to be any part of it.
Having known this Pastor for 40 years I would have to say you are a LIAR. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Anyone that hides behind a fictitious name to berate an individual or church is a coward and has no credibility. No saved person would place such lies on any forum.

Calvary is almost like a cult. That church put an 8ft fence around it and shuts it unless church is going on, plus the only allow women in the church to wear long skirts or dresses. God doesn't care what people wear to church and he surely doesn't want a church to block out people. I know people that have gone there as kids and they never want to go back when they are given another option. You people on here need to quit blindly following preachers and learn to follow the Lord. A preacher is no different from any other human on this Earth. Open your eyes people.
The church also has a school and it should be noted that the fence was installed to protect the children since it is near the interstate and we cant protect our children enough. As far as what one wears if you would read the bible which your comment shows you don't, you would see that God sets standards as being modest apparel. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. So one would obviously not expect you to understand!

1st John 5:19 [And] we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. So you are correct in assuming that they believe the BIBLE, and you would do well to read yours.

And what communion hath light with darkness?Wherefore come out from among (them), and be ye (separate), saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Well anonymous the bible is clear on separation, though I agree with loving people and spreading the gospel which this church is very forward to do. Yet let me remind you that the religious world hated Jesus also, and like I said in earlier post, the devil doesn't fight a church that's not causing him problems. Lk 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. So we say PRAISE GOD! Keep reproaching us because it is a BLESSING!

Oh please. Learn how to spell and how to use proper grammar. Maybe if people who use this site to "defend" could spell, they would get some respect. Until then, though, I could care less what you people think.
Repent for YOUR sins and do not judge. The Lord doesn't think to well of those who judge.

So people who don't go there are damned based on your judgmental attitude.

Nope not a preacher or any relation besides being a part of the body of Christ. Why not put your name, your real name first and last and where you attend church?

People are saved not because of the church they attend but because they have repented of their sins and put their faith in Jesus. No one is damned because they don't attend a church. It is comical that you accuse me of having a judgmental attitude for posting bible verses! How did you arrive at the conclusion I was being judgmental without having a judgmental attitude yourself? I believe since my post was only bible verses we have seen the words of Jesus fulfilled in John 12:48 - He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the {word} that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.(KJV)

Wow, based on reaction you seemed a bit ticked. Maybe the cult moniker is true. Coming after those who disagree are we?

The way "the light" is conveying him/herself is a fine example of why a lot of people 1.dont want to go to Calvary and 2 part of why they decide not to be a Christian.

I said nothing about the verses. It was about your additional words showing opinion and attitude. Seeds are to be thrown...not stones.
