This is not meant to be a strike at all churchs or people who worship in churches only as a view of my own personal feelings and my dislike of the hyprocrits in our society who preach one thing and practise another...If I offend anyone I will apologize in advance...


I took a walk along a quiet street

On a quiet  Sunday morning late in spring

I walked by that castle of glass and stone

Saw all the fancy cars parked outside

You know though I never felt alone


Inside I thought I heard a choir sing

Paused for a minute there outside

I wondered how many hypocrites

Held their heads up high with pride


I once believed with total blind faith

That the church could do no wrong

Until first hand I had  a real life vision

Knew that place was not where I belong


Instead I chose to chat with Jesus in my own style

With my faith stored within my imperfect private soul

I left the church but not the sight of my God

Now I try to walk with him and share his only goal


I discovered faith was a whole lot more

Then words written in a leather book of rules

Found that out from my friend, God’s son, Jesus

Learned I need not suffer untrue pious fools.

Peace be with you.
I agree with this "Just because you walk into a garage it does not mean that you are a car." Too many so called Christians go to church and are not really Christians. Still, there are a chosen few that are givers to the poor and needy. We need to humble ourselves, help our brothers and sisters and not be so greedy.

I have always said you don't have to got ot church to believe and we all find our own way of conecting with Jesus, and yes Felix I have seen the many hyprocrits that enter through the doors,
You've made this fully understandable. Thank you,
Love your Cuz, Rose XOXO

I can understand what you are saying, but if we only talk to God and Jesus and not suppost the church, then eventually people will not have churches and the word will not be spread. I can only imagine what the world would be like without God in it with us. I won't try to convince you that you are wrong in your feelings, and it is good that you pray, or talk to Jesus, but there is more than that. We all need to share the joy of Christ with the world.

Yes, yes Dear Felix! Couldn't agree more!
" blind faith... " is the way of old days!
Thank God we're finally questioning, examining and addressing our individual soul experience... -- The realization from which brings unity to our essential oneness as humans! Love is the result!
Love it!
Love, Suzie :-D

I believe there is a difference between 'religion' and 'spirituality'. As my bumper sticker says, "God needs more spiritual fruit, not religious nuts!"...

You have many others here who share your relationship with God. The temple most hloy is your body Fee and God hears you where ever you choose to least this is what I believe too although I attend church regularly.

My dearest, gentle friend, allow me to share my thoughts through a quote:
“(…) you know, sometimes there will be a man, a very righteous, very virtuous, very austere man, a Cato who has never abided by anything but his duty and the law… And yet, nobody likes him, nobody reaches out for him. Why? Because he has never given, never forgiven, never cherished, and never assisted. Then, right beside him, there will be another man – flippant, careless, with flaws, with guilt, a man who may even have forgotten his duty or may even have broken the law… but then, he is loving, generous, devoted, supportive, always has a kind word, a gentle touch; and thus, everybody loves him, and I wonder, may God forgive me, if God himself does not prefer him too…” – José Maria Eça de Queirós, in his novel “The Illustrious House of Ramires”
You are loving, generous, devoted, supportive, always have a kind word, a gentle touch. You are a good man… and I know that God – the Essence that feels the Essence beyond the apparent Substance- knows that. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{many hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
With all Love&Light*
