First of all, that's Baptists for ya. I used to go to a Baptist church, and they would contradict themselves every other week.
One week: You only have to accept Jesus as your personal savior, you don't even need to come to church.
Next week: If you don't come to church three times a week, you're not a good Christian.
Huh? Which is it, chief? Do I have to come to church or don't I?
I stopped going to churches like that and started going to one where they don't talk down to you, they talk to you as equals, and speak of themselves
as sinners the same as the rest of us. Nondenominational, nonjudgmental. No doom and gloom. Makes me actually want to go every week.
