    Default My grievance with fellowship

    I'm currently getting out there trying to make friends and begin life anew, and i love everyone who gathers in the name of Christ... But has anyone here ever experienced attending a mass at a church with people who wave their arms in the air and drop to their knees and shout out loud and basically just act like Experiencing God is some kind of Acid Trip? I mean, i sat in the back of this place, and while i heard beautiful music i feel like i should have paid for to hear, I got a mouthful of hogwash from people who act like absolute lunatics for Christ. Then, they tried to train me in going out in public and harassing people with telling them they're going to hell unless they listen to me, a known liar... and that i'm in the wrong if i don't witness to Christ this way? I'm sorry but this stuff NEEDS to stop. I get why people hate it!!!!

    Run, do not walk, to the nearest exit. God is not a God of disorder, and satan uses these kinds of churches to sour people against the TRUE gifts of the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit woos unbelievers, He doesn't hit them over the head about it. That doesn't start until you come here to CC

    Truth is available only to those who have the courage to question whatever they think they know.

    It's hard to learn anything when you always feel the need to be the expert.

    Mark 7:34 “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”

    hahah, you know... the funny thing is... That members of their congregation openly walk out into the lobby of this church during the middle of their sermons and lectures while they're being taught... as if this is regular pracitce. I mean... man, these people even testify in their actions that they've had enough. But MAN, it's just NOT IN ME to be THAT RUDE to anyone with a microphone, no matter how foolish they may be, lol

    Don't even get me started on praise bands either. Ughhh i can't stand it. I tried telling my friend that i wanted to be in a band and i wanted him to check out the song "creeping death" by metallica, because that's my art, ya know? He kept telling me he would but he never did because i knew he was so afraid of a vulgarity in the song. I encourage you to maybe read the lyrics to it if you want, or listen to it... I think it's awesome. But in any case, it's a clever worded song about the exodus from egypt and the plagues... Taught me to look up the what the "Land of Goshen" was. And in conversation with members of this church i talk about how i find it very hard to find lyrics to write, and they all say "really?!?" "they just come to me ALL the time, free flowing like water!" and do you even KNOW HOW HARD IT IS to reply: "Do you know why that is? It's because you don't listen to a dang thing you say" lol.

    People who crave a healthy dose of abuse in the form of the Truth are just so insufferable to be around.... I need to get over my anxiety's of caring about delivering it to them... It is only the healthy thing for them to hear. Maybe i should pray they get led here to read my grievances and understand how tormented my soul is by having to council these people.

    And you know what? I chalk it up the xanax in me, it's an unwelcome energy, and a real female dog to get out of your system. If anyone wants to hear a REAL rant, listen to my speal on the pharmacy. lol. You might not like it if that's your living though, be forewarned.

    unless they listen to me, a known liar
    Just quit lying! Jesus said all liars will have their part in the lake that burns with fire so it's important to quit lying.

    Besides, when you are telling them what God said you are not lying and it is actually true that people all around us are on their way to hell so we need to give them opportunity to get saved.



    That members of their congregation openly walk out into the lobby of this church during the middle of their sermons and lectures while they're being taught... as if this is regular pracitce
    They just had a lot of coffee before church and have to go wee wee... or check their email or text messages, or take a nap from the praise and worship service that wore them out. No biggie.



    i wanted him to check out the song "creeping death" by metallica, because that's my art, ya know?
    Rockin to darkness and to evil is yo "art"???

    Yeah, satan is laughing at you right now broman... he's in your head thru satanic music and he thinks it's funny to have an open door to yo mind.

    He doesn't think you are going to quit allowing him in cause he has brainwashed you in to thinking James Hetfield is someone cool to listen to.

    You should repent from satanic music. As a headbanger myself (Jesus metal now...) I can tell ya, dropping dark music will do wonders for your relationship with the Lord and your thought life.

    2 Corinthians 6:14-18
    Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
    And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
    And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
    Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
    And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.


    You watch... satan will send messengers who claim to be Christians to tell you "nah dude, it's all kool to listen to whatever turns you on man!"... you watch.

    he might just get you in to a metallica for free er something... anything to get you to keep that door in your life open to him so he can put darkness into yo mind.

    I actually think Slayer Blows. They're breaking up exodus. I was just driving home a point. People are worth it, and they're either laughing at you, or getting pissed off. What makes you such a self righteous weirdo? lol

    Reminds me of a incorrect wording on a church bulletin.
    "The outreach committee has enlisted 25 visitors to make calls on people who are not afflicted with any church." Heee ! But truly, while I believe everyone has their own way of worship, I also feel there are churches I dont belong in. Within me, I would feel the same discomfort as you there. Any place that would place immediate judgement on me, then teach me to place judgement on others, would be my red flag right away. Then as I found myself hating and judging the church that I just left ..well, that too, would teach me that I'm not in a good place. You should be feeling love in your heart when leaving a service and sermon, right? You will find the church that gives that to you eventually. Don't give up because of that one. I pray Holy Spirit will lead you to your church family that will bring you closer to God.

    If you cannot be grateful for what you have,
    Be grateful for what you have....escaped !

    Well, glad you got home safe ! Perfect? Well, no . Everything is never perfect till we see heaven. But I mean, places where you arent expected to go out on missions to preach hell and damnation. In our church we DO have some folks who raise their hands when they sing songs of praise. Kind of like my favorite young Christian artist Lauren Daigle does when she sings. They really feel the music as they sing. I dont see that as lunacy though. They just really love their worship music.

    they're either laughing at you, or getting pissed off.
    I wouldn't care either way... they can talk 'bout my momma and them if they'd like, I don't care.



    What makes you such a self righteous weirdo?
    I'm simply repeating what the Lord says...

    If you choose to reject the Lord's Word, then very bad days are coming yo ways.

    You shall reap what yo sow, and that is why you should quit the satanic affiliations before they deliver you to a place you wish to God you never went.

    But, whatever man... some folk gotta learns the hard wayZ
