There are pastors who understand God’s grace who are reluctant to preach grace, because grace will lead to a license to sin. Many of these same pastors in an effort to reduce sinning, they revert to preaching law, thinking that’s going to solve the problem.

I've been making a conscious effort to "find god" again.... but usually give up because there's just so much weight, misinterpretations and bad impressions left by so many 'believers', that my reluctance has turned into a kind of a fear of association. Mostly with the righteous holyroller types, who make it a point to judge everyone elses faith while ignoring their own... Long story short I want to believe in god again, but religion in general has made me sick.
But your post made some good sense, so thanks.
