I had a 16 year long experience in church attendance here in the United States as I was growing up.
My experience was not much different than many other people’s experience.
Yes, I saw a TON of hypocrisy. Bad hypocrisy. One example: a so-called Christian Dad who sodomized his own son and daughter. Yet continued to go to Church and speak in tongues, etc. etc.
That is my own personal experience. In addition I could not control or stop sin in my own life. Eventually, out of sheer frustration and anger, I left. It seemed like the whole thing was one big cheat.
Is there anyone else here who misses the God they got a glimpse of but walked away from due to heinous behavior on the part of so-called “Christians” who go to “Church”?
If so, have you found out what the lies were that you were told?
