I went to one Paco and have not been again.
The more i think about the concept of God and religion the more i struggle to believe. The concept of a "being" creating the universe is just too far beyond my understanding and i have seen too much intolerance & weird rules to trust religion.
I see. I'm sorry to hear that, and I understand.
You know what, there's only one difference that sets church people apart from people who don't go to church: they go to church.
Except for that fact, there is no difference AT ALL. People, in general, disappoint. I think it's because of the fact that we all, at the root, want to do only things that make us feel good. And sometimes (many times) we fail other people in the process. So don't expect supermen and superwomen in church. Christians are nothing better than non-believers. There's only one Man who doesn't disappoint, and that's because He is God Himself. In church, the focus should be on Jesus more than anyone. And if that's the case, people will change, because they want to look like Him.
Which weird rules put you off?
And what did you hope to expect from a church?
So i have made the decision to walk away from it and try to live my life the best i can which is all anyone can do.
You know, my mother doesn't go to church anymore for the same reasons you stated. There's a lot we christians need to learn.
About the concept of a "being" creating the universe and that it's too far beyond your understanding:
You're right. How should we ever understand? Many people (even in the Bible) have/had this problem. I can only come to the conclusion that we are but small humans. Compared to God, we know nothing (Job 38).
It's difficult indeed, and you're absolutely not the only one who struggles (there are many examples in the Bible). I think I said it here before: don't take everything the priests say for granted. They do make mistakes. We're all human. Read the Bible yourself, and pray to God.
It's better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. (Psalms 118: 8 )
