I am so sorry that you had a bad experience with this church,but please don't judge all churches by this one bad experience. We have some really great churches in our area that would be glad to have you worship with them.

I'm not sure what "legalistic white washed" means. From the context of your post, I assume you are using these words pejoratively. In any case, it seems that you are paintng with a awfully wide brush.

I remember when they were on South Pine Street. They really packed them in. I knew some truly wonderful people who attended that church. I'm sure Calvary Bible is like any other church. They have members who are true servants of god, self-righteous zealots and bible thumpers, holy rollers, excuse makers, hypocrites, and everyday people. You know: Perverts, sinners, drunks, sluts, dope fiends, crooks, etc.

I agree. I'm sure there are also some true Christians at Calvary Bible too that shouldn't be judged. Most churches have ups & downs, and often some interpersonal battles. There are many churches that would open their doors & arms to you and your family. Being raised in a Brethren church, and now a member of a Methodist church I think that CBC would probably be a little too charasmatic for what I'm used to but sometimes that works for some people. Pray that you'll find a church and you'll find one that suits you.

Well I once had a Pastor who said "If you find the prefect church, don't go there, You'll mess it up"!

You will of course not find a perfect church because humans cannot be perfect.

There are however a number of great churches in the area. I'll be praying that your family finds one and connects to the body there.

"attack people in the community that disagree with them"

How are you not doing that exact same thing?

do you have a specific example? or was it the "thou shall not murder" thing? 99% of people that are offended at any church is because they are feeling CONVICTED. I am not plugging or defending any church in the area, but if you are insulted by the man behind the podium, then perhaps you should first look in the mirror. sometimes the truth hurts and if your not looking at being accountable for your actions or lifestyle then maybe a church is the wrong place for you. look into joining a country club or something....

If you want to be taken seriously, revise your original statement. Not only does it seem like a rambling mess, your grammar is awful!

To the actual subject, you are being extremely judgmental yourself. You need to cool down and realize that God is in control and not your views on politics. I am sure there are many loving Christ followers in the church, and on the other side of the coin, I am sure there are many false Christians. Keep your eyes open, God's love will be shown to you where you least expect it. I do not know you personally, but I love you.

Yeah, go to the DA forum and read Concerned's comments there and then decide if you want to take advise from her. Wow, this coming from someone who just ripped the DA a new one on another forum calling him a drunk among many other things and she is telling you not to be judgmental. Unreal!!!

You are nothing more than a hypocrite Concerned. I feel sorry for people like you. Talking before you think must run in the family.

It's a church that believes in "Do as I say, not what I do"!!! Politics Rule! This church never heard the words "separation of church and state". This church is on of the church's talked about in Revelations. The church's that won't go in the rapture.

People, please pray for this church.

You have a lot of room to talk, it was even worse when you had your Spectator name you ran in the dirt. Don't even think of becoming the preacher, But there is still hope for you. Go to church on Sunday and learn your part.

Ahhhh, just a little bit of information for ya Lewistown.

1) I'm NOT spectator or who ever you wish I were..

2) I'm not the one on this forum proclaiming to be almighty and religious..

Maybe you should review my posts oand quit putting words in people's mouth. It's quite obvious to see your jealousy over my well informed post that make you look so stupid. Give up or go away. Seriously you're boring me with your stupid comments that have not merit, really!

Your responses to any of my post in a negative form is further proof of your jealousy.

If you people want to judge something, judge your local state and federal government. They are just like the churches around here. Tell the people they are safe and free while chopping away their God given rights to actual freedom and the ACTUAL pursuit of happiness. GET OFF YOUR KNEES AND STAND UP FOR FREEDOM. I wish I could find a church who has a preacher ready to lead a revolution against our Nazi Government. That's what preachers are supposed to do. Take care of their flock. Submission is only for the Creator, not tyrannical Governments. Preachers are the original patriots...look it up! Our first ministers here in the NEW LAND were the force behind gaining our independence. Romans 13 tells believers to defend themselves from oppression and tyranny, while today's charismatic preachers teach SUBMISSION to the powers. Therein lies the problem.

Pastor John Walters of Burnham, married a woman who was married twice before. Pastors are human, too. They make mistakes. Who are we to judge. Pastors aren't perfect. I guess a perfect congregation deserves a perfect pastor. Pray for your leaders of the church.
