Without any derrogatory comments (in all seriousness)would you state your comment or opinion as to what a church for unchurched people looks like? Eton is wanting to be the type of church where differences in looks, clothes, etc....make no difference. Eton's new vision is be a church that loves people and accepts whosoever will. Now, before you say Eton is the same as it has always been, it isn't. We have totally started over and started new and fresh and would like feedback from anyone as to what you would look for in order in a church in order for you to come. Again, please don't put anything ugly, just think about this question and let us know.

Thank you very much.

A Church where money is not their first priority.
A Church where street Preachers don't come in and take over the serman.
A Church where good Gospel music is sang at.
A Church where people are not pressured to go to the alter over and over.
A Church where the Preacher don't dress like a used car salesman.(or better than Jesus so to speak)
A Church that don't ask members to make house calls. Nothing makes people more angry than to intrude where you are not invited.
A Church that women are not degraded because they were born a woman.
A Church where Political beliefs don't matter.
because it would be impossible to be 100% honest.
A Church that is non-denomanational that don't expect everyone have the same beliefs as they do.
A Church that when you go, you will feel better when you leave than you did when you came.
My comments aren't meant to be rude in any way. This is what I have encountered in the past. It is hard to find one like this if not impossible.
When you find one like this ....let me know.

I find your comment intriguing. Are you saying that the "church" that Doo describes cannot or could not be 'Christian'? Or are you just trying to pull Doo's chain. I really wouldn't know but, seriously, I would have thought that there were a great many Christians who feel the way that Doo does about it.

I find it to call yourself a Christian and not obey the bible. It says you should go out and witness to the people hence doing house calls. The bible talks about giving a tenth to the church hence the money. Sometimes I myself think they ask too much. But a tenth is what is expected. You go to your church. I will go to mine.

I was just asking. But you seemed to be saying that because of the church that Doo outlined as his preference that he was not a Christian. Obviously we'll all go the church of our choice but you questioned his very faith not just his denomination. Are Catholics Christians in your view?

"YEAH" Doo you have been in my favorite deer stand or my favorite fishing hole,where most good honest people are saved or my favorite tree stump maybe.God didn't write the bible and its hard for me to believe that anyone else knew him good enough to know just exactly what he said or what he believed in that he didn't say .I do believe that there could be a real supreme Being or god out there somewhere,but I do not believe in the one that Pat Roberson and a lot of other people talk about only on Sunday and then live like demons every other day of the week,"republicans " are a very good example .I can see the god that I believe in every day and in every thing and I am sure there is some good even in "Really",But again its hard to see how anyone could be a true republican and be a christian "Greedy,Greedy,that is all that I see in them .Keep it up Doo your a good man ,you can hunt ,fish or borrow my tree stump at anytime.God bless Obama and DOO.

Because what he was saying sounded un-Christian like to me. I don't question anyone's faith till talk stupid like he did. By the way let DOO DOO head fight his own battles. I know his so old that it takes him a little time to think.

Tithing taught as it is today is not scriptual. A tenth is not what the Old Testament teaches to give. If your pastor says you should give a tenth of your income because the bible teaches you too he either doesnt know his bible or he is outright lying to you. Do a true study of the tithe youll find your answer. It says to bring the tithes (plural) not tithe (singular) now study and see what the tithes where and who was to bring them. If it was so important and meant for the New Testament church to keep practicing the Old Testament law then why didnt any apostle mention it...why didnt Paul mention it when he was instructing Timothy how to operate the church. Look and see how the church of Acts gave. You will never see a tithe mentioned not once. The tithe teaching as a tenth of income is a lie and not biblical.

You are saying you obey the bible so that makes you a christain , if this is so , do you sing in your church ? Does your church have any women Sunday School Teachers ? If you have these women in your church Then the church sins acording to the bible . The bible says women are to be silent in church .If you need to speak wait untill you get home and ask your husband .Do you think a woman that speaks in church should be beaten with a stick by her husband or the church men ? If you have girls would you give them to men to do what ever they please to them ? If your husband gets in a fight with another man and you help your husband do you think your husband shuld cut both of your hands off and show you no pity ? THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS TO DO . If you beleive God is a loving God then why would God allow women to be treated this way ?
The bible was wrote by men over and over and always by men .These men had to hate women to write such a thing .Do you beleive God wanted this for the women ? I do not think so myself . In church people skip over all of this . If they beleive all the bible it true then why don"t they explain this .Or why don"t they keep the women silent like the bible teaches them to do ?

That's why I found it intriguing. Mine was a philosophical inquiry and really had nothing to do with Doo per se. It could have been anyone else.

If you want to start a "new" church just look at the example in Acts and follow that. Social clubs like Rock Bridge and many other like them need to get back to reality of true worship. If I want coffee and a sermon on a big screen Ill stay home and watch John Hagee. Most church are filled with emotion brought about by music and showmanship. God said you must worship Him in he Spirit and in the Truth. Worship is not about the type of music...type of sermon...or anything else...its about giving honor and praise to God without all the pomp and cercumstance. Most "Christians" couldnt worship God unless it meet their style. Your style will burn in hell with the wicked...worship God from your whole heart without all the add ons. Jesus said in that day many will say unto me...did we not do many things in your name...did we not cast out demons...and Jesus said depart from me you who work iniquity I never knew you. Worship apart from being in the Spirit and truth is works of iniquity...it will get you knowwhere.

Gail you and others have no clue as to what the Bible truly teaches about women. To keep silent...first understand to whom Paul was speaking and why he said what he said. Im not going into detail I challange you to study to see what was meant in that passage...clue understand to whom and where he was speaking. Paul wrote under the direction of God for men to live their wives even as Christ loved the church and gave His life for it. In other words we husbands should love and respect our wives so much as to even die for her. Study God's Word instead of making it say what you want it to say as an excuse not to believe it. Deny His word all you want...he gives you free will to deny it all the way to a lake of fire if you so choose...but He is long suffering not willing that any perish but that all come to repentance.

All you need to do is be a church who loves all people. Dont try and be one who is seeking to please man by making a church for him...make a church that seeks to please God. If your goal is to fill the pews to have more people get that off your list and be a church that seeks to win souls. Dont go after mans thoughts of what church is to be but rather what God teaches it ought to be. You must preach repentance from sin to be saved and that afterwards we are required to live a certain way. Be honest in who you are and just be real with people. Why even ask man what he would like in a church...pray and ask for Gods guidance...He wont lead you wrong. I like Eton Baptist Church...know alit of people who go there and I know your heart is in tbe right place.

Why put it in the bible if it is not so . I understand everything wrote in the bible is the truth but if you don"t like what it says you can turn it around to suit yourself"s .Why was it put in the bible for people to read . Are you saying , what the bible says is not true .It has to be true or not true .And again , man wrote the bible over and over again and again .What was wrong with the first bible ? It has been changed so many times who knows what is real or what is not real ? In most churches no matter what they teach the people will beleive .
