Ten types of Churches/Christians I don’t trust

thecrossI consider myself a currently lapsed Catholic that will return to the fold at some point in a traditional Church where the mass is still conducted in Latin. There is still truth out there but it is increasingly rare these days. So much of what passes as the Christian religion is fake and disgustingly anti gospel. Here is the worst of the worst the 10 types of “christians that in true Bon Jovi style give Christ a bad name”

1. Churches that placate women’s bad behavior and shame men to distract the truth. Dalrock covers this on a regular and that is why I read his blog and avoid these type of hell on earth holes.

2. Prosperity gospel preachers that enrich themselves by selling false hope and bad theology. Try to get one of these hacks to explain why suffering exists and it will likely be because you haven’t Creflo’d enough dollars in their collection plate.

3. Christians that have no appreciation for ancient traditions and don’t understand history. If you don’t understand where you came from how do you know what you are?

4. Churches that make sin cheap and excuse bad behavior if it keeps people in the seats and dough in the coffers.

5. Churches that worship the Bible but do not understand where it came from. Without understanding the history of how scripture came to pass you really know nothing about the early Church or the true faith of the Apostles.

6. Churches that split over ever misunderstanding and difference. What is 0 / 0 again?

7. Christians that try to explain suffering.

8. Churches that focus on rapture theology and why they will be spared the impending doom.

9. Churches that claim to literally interpret scripture but upon closer inspection no one is missing any eyes…

10. Christians that turn Jesus into a boyfriend or a home boy. Wait is there a space between home and boy? On second thought who cares…

If you want faith why wouldn’t you take it like I take my Jack Daniels, straight?

    You missed on – and it’s probably the biggest growing “church” in any given community because “it’s fun!”…I call it religitainment – taking the basic concept of a Christian church and turning it into play to have fun, socialize, listen to some music, buy some stuff in their store or cafe, and oh yeah, here a few words about the guy you come to hear about and a little bit about why you should care.

    These “churches” are selling the entertainment more than anything else. I have not personally experienced one of these churches, because I refuse to support them even with my presence, but I have heard from others – when they are trying to convince me so visit and be part of their “worship” – they selling points are many, the basic spirituality is few.

    Case in point – a few years back, a friend of mine was telling me about “this great sermon the other night at church…” — the interesting thing, he couldn’t remember the message that was presented, or the real point for the sermon – what he remembered was the theatrics of the whole thing…The vignette on the jumbotron, the flashing lights, the dry-ice smoke on the stage, the band playing some Elvis song as the “preacher” came on stage dressed as the 70’s Elvis.

    Truly, WTF – and don’t get me started on the “shops and cafes” that in the lobbies of some of these “churches”.

      Been there seen that and your right its a great con. Preachers that can build this type of fun/emotional experience build big followings and wealth along with it. Bet that is how Jonestown started its all fun and games until they start handing out grape drinks..

        Leviticus 10:1-3

        10 Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it and laid incense on it and offered unauthorized[a] fire before the Lord, which he had not commanded them. 2 And fire came out from before the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord. 3 Then Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord has said: ‘Among those who are near me I will be sanctified, and before all the people I will be glorified.’” And Aaron held his peace.
