You're kidding, right? You are looking for guidance on a Christian matter, and you come to TOPIX for advice? Really?
Are you looking for a church, or a social status? Someone looking for a church home usually finds it by prayer and visiting. Not on a public forum from a bunch of heathens.

They are both the same. The pastors there both use bibles that have the corrupt Westcott and Hort (N/U) New Greek Text that changes the word of the living God. They are both Southern Baptiat churches that allow Freemasons to hold office. They both take in big bucks so the pastors are afraid to make one mad on bible truth.

There are a lot of choices . Both of those churches have a lot of members who are very happy with their church but to be fair to yourself you should realize there are many churches to choose from and the decision you make might take quite a while. It took me many years to find a church home. The church I am most happy with is the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist church. This is the church where I don't feel that I am being taught to hate or judge anyone. Some refer to it as a non denominational church but I see it being an all denominational church.

You can learn more about it and even hear some sermons here if you like

Manley Church has all the business connections, so if you're not rich and looking to make some cash, go with Manley. First is for the old white people who are rich already. If you actually care about religion as opposed to networking and gossip, I'd stay far away from both places.

how do you know that both of the pastors use New Greek Text? and even if they do, how does that make the word of God corrupted?

I have listened to both preach. The Manley pastor uses anything but the KJB and the First Baptist pastor uses the New King James that has the New Greek Text watered in it. All bibles since the KJB have the Westcott and Hort New Greek Text watered in them. The N/U Text was based on corrupt manuscripts that the KJB translators rejected. Both pastors compromise the pure word of the living God.

I know for a fact that the first baptist preacher isn't preaching out of a N/U text. He has studied Greek and Hebrew language so when he preaches he will translate some words or names of people in the bible. I still do not understand how that "corrupts" the word of God. All he is doing is translating the Language. You do know that the bible was not originally written in English right?

Both churches are wonderful...I grew up at FBC but also attended Manley for several years...I am now back at FBC...Dr. Haun and Dr. Emmett are both Godly men who preach the truth and love this community...I would advise you to visit both in order to see which one you like better if either of them....

If he is still using the New King James Bible you will find it does have the (N/U) New Greek Text listed in the preface. One does not have to know Greek and Hebrew to preach the word of God. The KJB translators were the finest scholars in the world and you could never find men as gifted as them in languages today. They translated the word of God from Greek and Hebrew in our mother tongue which is English so we don't have to. Why do men today think they have to second guess how these brilliant scholars called of God translated a word. They always got it right. You will find in the New King James in 1 John 5:7 that this entire verse is missing. It's one of the best verses in the entire bible that describes the Trinity. Dr.s Westcott and Hort hated the Trinity and this is why you will find in all bibles since the KJB 1 John 5:7 is either missing or footnotes that cast doubt if the verse should be in God's word. This is just one of many ways the N/U New Greek Text perverts the word of our living God.

I'd recommend St. Patricks. If you don't like the sermon you can hang around to see if one of the visiting priests is in. That way you might get you c**k s**ked.

"Dr" Emmert has never preached a day in his life! He may be a fine teacher, which is what he does, but I don't think he knows the meaning of preaching. Manley wouldn't know what to do if a real, hellfire and brimstone southern Baptish preacher showed up. At least half of them would get up and leave most likely because they don't want to hear the word of God preached honestly. Leave the teaching, the overhead projectors, the planned out fill-in-the-blanks "worksheets", and the slow, soft-spoken voice to the Sunday School classroom where it belongs. People go to CHURCH to hear PREACHING.

Dr. Emmert is very soft spoken. Dr. Dean Haun is a much better preacher than Emmert. They r both great men and neither would ever lead someone in the wrong direction. Even if Dr. Haun translates some words into different languages he isn't corrupting the Bible. I have to agree with what "your wrong" said earlier

They both use bibles that have corrupted manuscripts in them and they pervert the word of the living God.

I didn't know there was any hellfire and brimestone Southern Baptist preachers. I have yet to hear a Southern Baptist really preach the word of God! The majority of Southern Baptist church members would scatter if a real preacher got in thier pulpit.

If sixfoot sevenfoot wants to go to a church that does not believe that Jesus Christ is divine and that He did not rise from the dead, then He might try your heathen so called church.
