    The problem with the Catholic Church is much the same as the problem with our government.

    The problem is notwith the Bible, nor our Constitution.

    And it's not most of the people, it's the evil greedy entrenched thugs running the show. I think we can all agree on that.

    I still believe in Christ and pray, attend church on occasion, but do not lend financial support unless it's going directly to my local parish.

    I still vote. But I see our elections becoming a farce and our choices of candidates either, bad or worse. I think Americans need to start from the ground up and start electing honest people locally and move them into positions of power on the state and federal level.

    This is more difficult in churches. The greedy Bishop wanted to close a local church, that had a devout following, and wonderful Pastors. The uproar from the community was unified and resolute. They held a rotating sit in vigil, vowing not to leave the Church, until the Bishop relented. The Bishop when confronted with such devout pious Christians had to relent or be seen as an agent of Lucifer.

    if you have to come up with an excuse try harder!!!! do you refuse to go to walmart, golf course, gun store, etc.. because there are hypocrites there??

    Looking around the congregation you forgot to mention the elderly lady that always gives hand made caps to kids with cancer - who takes a drink now and then

    the young man who works 12 hours a week volunteering at a food pantry and still struggles with porn

    the pastor who gave up a career making $250,000 a year in order to pastor a small church but he still has a anger problem from time to time

    OF COURSE the thing is a church is family, we do not stop being family because we are imperfect

    you are trying to hold up Followers of Jesus to a standard even he himself would not hold people to


    so unless you apply the "HYPOCRISY" RULE to all areas of your life.... you need to go back to church.. or you are the biggest Hypocrite

    Very interesting thread. Good churches are nice but hard to find for us old old Bapticostals. We had a cool church but the preacher died and we aint found a good place to go yet. About the time he passed and the church unravled..I started getting a lot of off duty security gigs at other churches so I felt like I went to church a lot. Had to listen to a Southern Baptist blab twice a day for years. lol. Anyway when I lost the steenken badge I dont get paid to listen to that stuff any longer.lol. I go to church on the FM radio. No need to dress up..or worry about a parking spot...or getting murdered by liberals and or muslims. This is my preacher. Trump loves hm a lot too. I am going to send him 25 bucks soon.

    Here's something to consider. If you don't know about your pastor, ask him.

    Gosh, well c'mon to church then. You'll fit right in... Just kidding!!!! Actually, Jesus told a story about that. You're right, we have to admit when we miss the mark and be real and try to do better.

    [11] The Pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself: O God, I give thee thanks that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican. [12] I fast twice in a week: I give tithes of all that I possess. ... [13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven; but struck his breast, saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner. ... [14] I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted. ... [15] And they brought unto him also infants, that he might touch them. Which when the disciples saw, they rebuked them.

    I had to take a bus yesterday.

    There was an elderly lady with groceries , a walker, and having a hard time. I stood up and went to help, I loaded her belongings, on and off; every thing except her. I was happy to do so. She thanked me, and I was happy to help.

    Why? Because it was the right thing to do, and made her day better.

    That is being a good Christian.

    P.S. Dear Lord forgive me for my sin, I did not mean to tell a lie. It was Wednesday not Thursday I was on the bus.

    Oooh, that's some scary stuff. Makes me think of that pastor guy from "Poltergeist", leading the flock in the wrong direction.

    Annie, yes it the right thing to attend church; but I myself have run into unforeseen obstacles to going. I don't know if it is because Saint Petersburg is full of screwballs, or if I am the screwball. The last place that I tried called itself a "chapel", and it is a good place in some ways; but it has a lousy modus operendi, in general.

    I am perplexed at America's churches in general, because it is like Amateur Hour has broken out, all around. They say that they want growth, and then proceed to kill off anything that grows. Some churches purport to be "with it", "hip" or some such; and they stink as much as the ones that are stuck in the mud.

    The last revival that I attended can best be summarized as a wake. Like I said, I am perplexed; plus the churches must be too, sometimes it is impossible to know what is going on. Except to know that Christianity has been knocked back on its heels; that much is easy to see.

    I think that something has gone badly awry in the churches, but I cannot figure out what that is. But when I show up in sandals, and blue jeans, I am regarded as an untouchable; and I told a very intelligent woman, that America is becoming like India, and Hindu. And now I will tell another very intelligent woman, that is pretty close to what is going on in America. [If I am am right, that is a condemnation of the modern Christian and church.]

    The nation has fallen, what I mean is, it is against the church and Christians; and it was not that way back in the 1960's & 1970's.
