I cannot stand the House of Prayer church, if it can be called that. I think it is more of a cult. They have their spies out all over the place to report back to friends and family what people in that congregation (to include exstended family)are doing.
I am a one year christian and I am ready to give up on my faith. I am constantly ridiculed and judged and i am a grown woman with kids. I dont smoke, dont drink any more than my "christian" father, and dont do drugs. I am not sexually active or do not feel like anything I do is terribly wrong. Yet, they can find so much fault in people its unreal.
They should turn their judgemental eyes toward themselves and leave others alone. It will be a cold day in hell before I step foot in that place again.
The preacher professes to have not read the bible all the way through.....WOW!! There are no young people in the church, they dont care they think the Lord is coming this year...Why work toward a larger congregation??? There about 30 people who attend regularly and with the exception of a few (the real christians) that church is full of negativity and gossip. They love to talk about each other, degrade families that dont attend church, and call out peoples faults publically.
i am not perfect but I am not a bad person. This is probably the worse thing I have ever done. But i am SICK of petty crap keeping me on the path of christianity. I am so frustrated right now (thus the sporadic writing, and for that I am sorry). Joe Devotie and his followers and the most anti christianity "christians" I have ever been unfortunate enough to meet.

I am at my wits end and just dont know what to do anymore. i certainly do not feel Jesus in my home and around my family anymore, only the eyes of judgement the pain of being reminded of my past as a kid and all the mistakes I have ever made. And I am supposed to feel fulfilled. Sometimes i just want to end all of it. I feel so down and empty becuase of the level of crap I live with on a daily basis that I think death would be better. Just leaving them a note telling them all how I feel and disappearing forever.

Move on to another church that you can be encouraged and grow in Christ. It seems to me that you have convinced yourself that you must go there even though you are miserable. Did you grow up in that church? Family attending? It is your choice now, now theirs.

sounds like its time to move on and find another church, there are lots of good Churches in the area as well as good ppl! hang in there and dont give in to them. what you described sounds more like a cult than a christain church, a born again child of GOD dont act in that manner. this is not the first time that church has been brought-up on this fourm, i have yet to hear much good of it!

Sounds like to me its time to live your life without the need for religion. Get a life. Why do you need a fairy tale to live right? Its not hard to live right. Here, I'll give you some simple rules to live by. Do no harm to others. Work hard and support yourself. Enjoy the simple pleasures in life, they are free or very cheap. Don't worry about what other people think about you. Avoid people that can't stay out of trouble or that cause conflict or pain. Its really not hard.

Seriously? Some people are crazy. If you have a problem with a church, dont go there anymore. Find another place. But getting on this forum to bash it is a little immature. I know some great folks that attend this church, and I can assure you they aren't the ones pointing fingers or passing judgements, nor do they think of themselves as better. They are great people that seem to have more love for their Savior and act like better Christians than most of the people in this town that claim to be so wonderful. I attend another type of church in town and have never been to this church. But I feel it is unfair to point fingers. Everyone and every church has it's own problems. That's between them and the Lord. Ask God to lead you where he wants you, prayer is going to be the best thing for you at this point. I'm sure if you pray with much sincerity, He will eventually show you what is His will.

Please dont give up, God loves you, and he will guide you to another church. just hold your head up high, and do the best you can.********* I went to that church one time, they say they are petecostal, but i never saw such dead people, we are to make a joyful noise to the lord, the preacher is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy to quiet, he needs a good ol dose of holy ghost. and start praising the Lord. he is to shy. i will not go to a dead church.

According to a family member, he is an "anointed" man of God? Yeah right. That is why it is his family, extended family and their friends attending.

Once you have been saved, given your heart to Jesus seriously, your relationship is between you and God, through Jesus..Just pray to God in Jesus name, and don't let negativity from anyone get between you and Him..Read your Bible, pray, and let the Holy Spirit that is in your heart, lead you and guide you..You have been hurt by people in this church, so move on to where you can fully praise the Lord and worship Him..Please don't give up on God, He will never give up on you. Start watching TBN on tv, they will give you a lot of encouragement, and that is what you need right now. God bless you, dear one, remember Jesus loves you so very much!
