If so, what kind of church?

Is your church loud, fun, exciting, and something you look forward to?

Or is your church quiet, gloomy, full of old people, and threats of burning in hell forever?

I normally go to church, but I skipped today. Guess I'm going to Hell.

And my church is option B, without all the threats of burning in hell forever.

Haven't been in over two years at least. I love having a full 2 day weekend. I gained like 52 vacation days when I became agnostic lol Seriously it's pretty fuging awesome. Today I'm going to clean my windows. Hang out at the pool. Spend some time with my kid playing, play some video games and who knows what else.

I agree. it sucks that most people work hard 5 days a week, and on one of the 2 days that you get to rest, you have to wake up early in order to get the kids ready to go to church.

I bet churches across the nation would gain millions of members if they held service in the afternoon instead of the morning.

As far as the church that i go to, it's pretty awesome. Consists mainly of cracking open a cold one while sitting my ass on the recliner, and watching some football.

Afternoon services? On Sunday? And miss NFL and NASCAR?

Maybe have Monday evening services.

But not many would send donations, tithe, or pay a membership fee for an online church.:)

good point...and that's a big part of it.

set it up like a porn site...or so I've been told...pay a monthly membership fee and have the worship on a continous loop etc.

Like hawk, weddings and funerals.

The churches around here teach gay hate. Pisses me off. My daughter cheered for Upward a couple of years ago. Before a game, the preacher did a short sermon talking about drug abusers, murderers, and homosexuals were all going to hell. A gay person is the same as a murderer? WTF? We never went back.

That's not the only church, just one example of what it's like around here.

When I go, I enjoy church. But I normally only go on Christmas and Easter nowadays. There is no shot at me going during football season. I certainly want to start going more. Found a good church down here called Good Shepherd on S. Tryon that we go to from time to time.

I don't wanna make this all tinderbox etc...but the thing about church that bothers me, is why people feel obligated to go...like it's some sort of social thing or a sin to miss a Sunday. I understand it is a social thing and it's part of the congregation etc, but there's far too much one up manship going on....hard to explain my point...but I truly feel a huge majority of people go to church for all the wrong reasons.
