I have went to this church was raised in this church and it kept my faith strong in the lord at a young age "Temple Tots" is good if you have Children. The best church to go to is "New Begginings" in Piketon. They are a Non Denominational church...they do not Judge you. Good ppl there!. Temple isnt bad it is more one of your "Traditional" churches" I would suggest you keep visiting new places until you find the one you WILL KNOW IT!!! John 3:16

Go to another church. I left Temple Baptist since the biaed pastor and deacon board seeks their own goals and are deceipful desires. I could not trust them and the congregation justifies the wrong doings.

Unity church in New Boston behind CVS is a good place to go. They have good preachers and great singers.

Temple is a good church as another person said, as long as you like a more traditional church. I attended when I was younger (Temple Tots, too) and when Pastor Gowdy was the youth pastor, I enjoyed it. For some reason it changed after he became pastor, but I can't explain how without sounding like I'm putting down the church. Some people like a strict congregation, some people don't. I don't, so I stopped going. Church is in the heart, try several, don't ask around, find the one that's right for you.

Too many hidden agendas. Too many cover-ups. Honest Christ followers belittled, rid of, while adulterers, teacher with 16 year olds, and wrong doers are protected by the scheeming leadership and ignored by the snobbish congregation of Temple Baptist. Talk to those that left it.
Find a small church that stands for The King James Bible and fears God. Normally a small church is the answer as the pastor is not worried about protecting his position and title. A small church needs membership as church goers dry up.

It's a socialists dream come true. Share taxpayers wealth to the congregation. Ignore the national deficit.

Subject: Obituary -- Interesting to say the least, especially the last part.
In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinborough, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy,(which is) always followed by a dictatorship."
"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."
The Obituary follows:
Born 1776, Died 2012
It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:
Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.
Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government housing.."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal's - and they vote -then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.
If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom..
This is truly scary! Of course we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic . Someone should point this out to Obama. Of course we know he and too many others pay little attention to The Constitution. There couldn't be more at stake than on Nov 2012.
If you are as concerned as I am please pass this along.
TEMPLE BAPTIST SHOULD DEMAND WISE STEWARDSHIP OF MONEY BUT WE LIKE THE CHEAP RENT IN SOCIALISM CAROUSEL! I hate that evil church and its freeloading congregation.

Just go one time and see if it's the Church for you. After services talk to the Pastor and see if they believe about the same as you. No two people on Earth believe exactly the same any ways. Only you can decide if it's the Church for you. You'll just get that warm, homely feeling. Good luck and God Bless.

It's cliquish. Find another church since this place covers up adultery and other issues constantly.
#18 Dec 25, 2011
Are you an adulterer or a fornicator? School teachers with teenage girls. Come to Temple where they swing in secret.
Dallas has a swinging church:

AFTER A WEB SEARCH ON THE SUBJECT I FOUND THIS WEBSITE: gentlenibles.com (Don't look for it since it shows discusting things on it.):
Swinging and the Sanctuary – You’re Sharing Your Pews with Pervs
Posted by Mr. GentleNibbles on August 20, 2009 · 10 Comments
Growing up dead center in the Bible Belt, I had Moses’ twelve commandments memorized before the pledge of allegiance and had a much greater fear of damnation than any snakes, spiders, or dark closets.
Not only did I grow up somewhere between the “I” and the second “B” in the Bible Belt, but I grew up the son of enthusiastic Sunday School teachers in a Southern Baptist Church.
With an upbringing like this, I was pretty sure during my childhood years that the female members of the congegration did not remove their panties to pee much less engage in sexual debauchery with more than one person at a time.
Wow! If I had only known then what I know now, think of the fantasies I could have had during those long boring sermons as a young boy! Well…. that would be bad too, because I seem to remember masturbation being “of the devil” as well!
Mrs. Gentlenibbles and I were blown away when we first started meeting couples in the Lifestyle at just how normal everyone is. People come from all walks of life, all ages, all forms of professions, and yes even all different types of religions. As a matter of fact, we find the percentage of people active in the church to be the same for our friends inside the Lifestyle as those on the out.
Not only do we find the numbers about the same, but of those “Swinger” friends we know who do go to church we find them no less active or passionate than our vanilla pew dwelling friends. To satisfy our curiosity, last week we introduced a new poll on Gentle Nibbles to get an idea of how active our readership was in the church. So far the numbers have been amazing.
Of all respondents only 18% are not religious whatsoever.
Also, of all respondents only 4% were not swingers.
That means 78% of our readers are swingers and do consider themselves spiritual or religious.
Here are some other interesting Statistics pulled from outside sources:
A study of pastors sponsored by Christianity Today found that 23% of 300 pastors admitted some form of sexually inappropriate behavior with someone other than their wives while in the ministry”
-Journal of Psychology & Christianity 8, no. 4 (Winter 1989)
Torn Asunder, Dave Carder, pg. 26
Durex’s Global Sex Survey has found that worldwide 22% of the population have had extramarital sex.(Keep in mind this includes many Muslim countries where the penalty is death by stoning)
-Durex. The Global Sex Survey 2005. Published online.(via -Wikipedia)
So I guess my ponderance boils down to this?
If religion and spirituality is so popular among Swingers, adultery is so prevalent within the church, and extramarital sex so popular worldwide, then why exactly is there a need for Mrs. Gentlenibbles and I to publish this blog about swinging under aliases versus our real names?….other than the fact “Gentle Nibbles” is so much more catching!
As swingers Mrs. Gentlenibbles and I don’t consider our actions adultery. Our experiences are open, honest, and for the full enjoyment and benefit of each other.

I really couldn't tell you what kind of Church it is. I was just telling her that she should go to WHAT EVER Church she wants to see if it's the right one for her. If this is happening at this Church, well then by all means don't go to it. I was just saying, check them out for yourself. God Bless.
