    Something you would know if you read the links. The Denomination is huge but sinking in members every year as many turn away. The Church lost half it’s members in the 4 years I tried to stick it out with pressure from friends.

    New Pastor now, but they are still struggling as so many turned away.
    People are leaving denominations because there are to many man's rules and not enough of Jesus

    That's funny, because Jesus in bible didn't write anything.
    The men who wrote the Old Testament sure didn't have Christianity in mind.
    The Catholics used books useful to control people, ie the New Testament.
    Blame the Catholic reliogion.

    With all the hatred you spew around here, it's obvious you don't follow his teachings.

    "You are sons of snakes" Jesus Christ, ptif219 is correct to call out the hypocritical left.

    You show you do not know the difference between disagreement and hate

    No, Jimmy Carter stayed in his Church after they changed the way they treated women. I read the statement from Jimmy just a few weeks ago.
