The plastic church

Virginia Beach, VA

#1 May 16, 2011
I was a member of the Nazarene Church for 33 years. The demonination is responsible for introducing me to my best friend, Jesus and I am inmeasureably grateful. The congregation "loved me in". I moved to a different city and joined a Nazarene church there. Lately it is alarming in that the board members and pastor seem to demand unquestionable loyalty to the pastor and requires some to sign a paper to be loyal to the pastor !!! The pastor often degrades and humiliates the attendies in front of the entire congregation if that person is judged "sinful". When I was not saved it was love that caused me to repent and not harsh treatment. Do not ask questions just follow blindly and there will be no problem for you. If one tries to get help with a problem he may very well be verbally attacked. It is a plastic church, just smile and say everything is OK, even when it isn't.

That is certainly unacceptable behavior and the district should really consider another choice.
