If you have no joy in your religion, there's a leak in your Christianity somewhere.
Pastor & Mrs Hamilton
Choosing a Church:
In our pick-and-mix religious culture of today we can all find a religious form to express ourselves. "If you like people and enjoy sharing with others, you will probably pick a church with a relational tone to it. If you are, on the other hand happier with books than with people, you will choose to worship at a church of of a more cerebral bent. If you have a fortress mentality you will find a church that makes a clear separation between us and them. If you feel guilty and want to be punished, you might look for a church which confirms your negative self-image. If you are insecure in your religious beliefs, you will probably look for a religious institution in which every doctrine is chiseled in concrete. We need to be careful not to equate our psychological needs with biblical truth." What's your criteria for choosing a church?
