Well I am not a sinner, so Church is not for me.There sure are lots of angry people out there pointing fingers. I am sorry for you all. I am a member and I don't have much money to give. I never heard anyone complain or even make mention of it. As far as "clout" goes...I believe it says in the Bible that God is not a respecter of persons.
I won't judge anyone of you that has made a comment, but I would like to invite you to come to church at East Wood. I have had many ups and downs in my life and have had a hard time sitting still through some of the sermons. But, church is for the sinners. So, don't expect to find all "angels" everywhere you go. Alot of people are sorry if they "tarnish" the name of the church, but they don't quit going if fear of being hypocritical. We just keep going...keep praying...and keep trying. And the people at the church keep loving us.
So, you "outsiders"...please come in...and those that have been here before....if you don't like it, It is a free country! But, be careful what you say to others, cause you can be held accountable. There hasn't been a preacher I haven't LOVED. And I happen to know that most of my friends at church feel the same as I do about ALL the preachers we have had. And I love all the members...they are not all my friends. But, loving people and talking nice is an easy "good" thing to do. There are too many other temptations out there that are harder to stay away from.
I am a person just like other people in congregations all over town. And the people at East Wood are just people like everybody else. We would like to try to be good examples of Christians so that others would like to be with us because that is what Jesus has told us all to do. But, everybody has to speak for themselves. We are individuals. So when you speak about "US"....remember that.
And please do come and visit...and I only HOPE and pray you are sitting by an individual who is friendly and kind to you when you come...cause you may decide we are all just like that one person that either does or does not speak nicely that day.
I'm just a nobody. That's just all I've ever been.
