prevents piss poor performance and if you use your mind and actually apply yourself, youtoo will be successful. Okay here is my problem with churches when it comes to its believers. They sayyou have the choice to either choose god or not, but that is pure bull… If you choose tobelieve in something else that Jesus Christ and God, well you are going to go to hell andthey will tell you that to your face. Then they will try to spin every horrible event in yourlife thus far as happening because you turned your back on God. Therefore, the weakminded says okay I need to have god in my life and they will tell me how I need to act andwhat I can do. Congratulations, you have just given up your personal freedom and that isnot what any high power should be asking for. I like the original idea about how we need tobe more compassionate, turn the other cheek, love thy neighbor, stay faithful to yourpartner, and all of the good behavior teachings. I also think that your children should learnthese values from a church at a young age, but ultimately if you are a good person you do

Now off my soap box here, Ihave many religious friends and I do listen to them talk about how spiritually happy theyare, which makes me happy that they are happy, but that works for them not me so do notclassify me as a sinner because I choose not to believe it a high being.

Look I am completely fine if you want to donate to thechurch for in order to help provide clothing, food, medical supplies, education, and housingto those less fortunate that the church helps out. However, if you are providing an incomefor those who live in the church, for bigger grounds, or better décor within the church youare crazy. God does not care how big you church is or how decorative it is. God, if heshould exist, cares how you treat others, yourself, and that you obey the rules he laid out inhis sermons. Yet here churches are asking for money every day and look down on you ifyou cannot provide money to them every time. You become almost excommunicatedbecause you are not as financially stable as others are. Additionally, how many times doyou hear about money being stolen or skimmed from the church by the priests?
