We have been praying and searching for a church for over 6 years now, after leaving the church we had been members of, after the pastor admitted to an affair.
There are two churches that are Biblically sound from what we can tell so far, (the pastors message anyway).
At the one church not a single person shook our hands (germaphobia?), I think two people said hello. There was no sense of community among anyone, and it's not a big church.
I think, "would God want me attending a church where He or unbelievers would not be welcomed"?
At the second church the worship service leaves me very uncomfortable...a lot of what seems like, vain repitition, and is being led by teenagers.
The nursery worker was also very rude concerning my 15 month old son, who was'nt in the best of moods at the time. His little sister (3) had to console him.
It just seems like every church we step in the people are unfriendlier than "the world", something is seriously wrong with this picture.
I hear from other Christians and pastors on the radio that if a person is jumping from church to church the problem is them, but are these legitimate reasons not to go to these churches? Remember, these are the decent ones we have found lol.
