Mark it is OK to give up on church, I have done it many times but try never to give up on God. Mike
I've was allowed to just slip-away into invisible oblivion with Church #1. Dang did they ever love Rob & Lorie when I had cars to gift to single, poor mothers. Lorie and I were the go-to people when something needed to be done for the needy ASAP.
10 years there, and we slipped-away after vigorous requests for marital help.
Church #2: Showed me the door (they showed me the door)!! They walked me to the door and said we don't deal with that
People fail. People hurt you. People are inherently evil. That's why Jesus reaches his hand down to save us.
GOD WILL NEVER LEAVE ME! He's not going to leave anyone. He WILL hold those in churches filled with arrogance, apathy and self-centeredness.
