"No Excuse Sunday": Cots will be placed in the back for those who say, "Sunday is my only day to sleep in." Section with lounge chairs for those who feel that our pews are too hard. Eye drops for those with tired eyes from watching TV late Saturday night. We will have steel helmets for those who say, "The roof would cave in if I came to church." Blankets for those who think the church is too cold, and fans for those who say it is too hot. Scorecards for those who wish to list the hypocrites present. Relatives and friends will be in attendance for those who can't go to church and cook dinner, too. Special section NO offering plate for those that feel the church is always asking for money. A section for trees and grass who like to seek God in nature. Nurses will be in attendance for those who plan to be sick on Sunday. The sanctuary will be decorated with both Christmas and Easter for those who never have seen the church only on Easter and Christimas. We will provide hearing aids for those who can't hear the preacher and cotton wool for those who think he's too loud! Hope to see you there!

Well Rev Jim, your post just summed up the problem with churches today.

Churches want to make everything easy and convenient, without making anyone uncomfortable. Gone are the sermons of hellfire and brimsone,replaced by lectures about GOD wanting everyone to be wealthy.

Reading my bible i find nothing that says i have to congregate in a church three times a week to have blessing bestowed upon me, perhaps you could enlighten me as to the chapter and verse.

About those trees and grass, can you tell me any better place to worship GOD than the beautiful places he created?

But, if you don't attend then a pastor and folks would not get to know the nice guy that you are. You would not meet a nice pastor like myself that enjoy friendship and fellowship. There is nothing like Getting together and enjoyng each others company. That is one of the reason I come on topix, nicest folks like yourself that I can get to know and read their opinions. Everybody are just great people to communicate with.

EVEN THOUGH I GREW UP IN A CHRISTIAN HOME AND MY STEP FATHER WAS AN ORDAINED MINISTER OF SOUTHERN BABTIST I DO NOT ATTEND CHRUCH AS WELL BEING THAT I HAVE BEEN TO A FEW AND YOU EITHER HAVE THOSE HYPERCRITES AS YOU SAY OR YOU COULD HEAR A PIN DROP IN THE PLACE OR WHATEVER. SURE IT MAY BE THE DEVIL JUST TELLING ME NOT TO GO BUT NO WHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES IT MEANTION THE WORD CHRUCH. IT DOES HOWEVER MEANTION TO COME TOGETHER ON THE KNOWN HOLIDAYS IN FELLOWSHIP LIKE EASTER, CHRISTMAS AND SO ON THAT KNOWS CHRIST. IT TALKS IN THE BIBLE ABOUT HAVING THE BIG FEAST ON THESE DAYS AND FELLOWSHIP . EVEN THOUGH I DONT GO TO CHRUCH ANYWHERE IT DOES NOT WAY ME FROM MY BELIEFS IN GOD AND NEVER WILL . I WATCH THE PROGRAMS ON TV AND SUCH AND TRY TO LIVE MY LIFE IN A GOOD WAY. WHENEVER I GET A CHANCE TO EXPRESS GOD TO SOMEONE I WILL CAUSE I AM NOT ASHAMED OF HIM BUT I ALSO WILL NOT THROW MY RELIGON DOWN SOMEONE'S THOART CAUSE THAT OTHER PERSON MAKES THIER OWN DESICIONS. I AM NOT HERE TO JUDGE PEOPLE AND I WILL NEVER LOOK AT ANOTHER PERSON AND JUDGE THEM FOR WHAT THEY WEAR, WHO THEY ARE, WHAT THEY DO, THE COLOR OF THIER SKIN OR SO ON....

You could put in a full bar, a jacuzzi,a live metal band and a masseuse and I still wouldn't go.
