If you’re a Baptist it’s because Baptists fit your ministry or “style.” Same with any other denomination. If you’re a Catholic and you’re still reading this I salute you, but honestly it’s because it fits you. I know someone that’s a born again Christian that still practices Morman because it fits her. When you’re witnessing, understand religion is man made and capable of error, but it’s different for different people because while the Bible stays the same and without error it will apply differently to different people. You’re not out to make someone believe as you believe but to encourage people to believe in Christ in their own way. While you can encourage someone to go to your church with you, don’t be offended if they criticize the doctrine. This is a group effort but the fight is not with other people it’s within ourselves.
Go to church. Any church. I’m working a double at work with an 8 hour turnaround as I’m writing this, so be grateful you can go to church. I have learned not to care what other people do as it’s none of my business. For the love of goodness, forget what other people are doing and find a decent preacher that opens his Bible at the pulpit and reads from it in his sermon and gives you a message from it explaining it the best as he can. All I can honestly say that if it has a Starbucks in the foyer and you couldn’t find a parking space then look for one that has a handful of cars here and there. I’ll explain in a later post. Church is worshipping God but it’s for you to grow spiritually. It only benefits you to go and keeps you aligned with His word and keeps you accountable to others. It is the best tool to keep you from drifting.
