This is an interesting and very observant perspective of "chuch life" - many are struggling to "fit in" to what they deem is proper, or comfortable.

The main basic thing most people forget is, we are all "one body" in Christ, and our relationship with God is personal and such an individual thing. Good Job, God Bless you~
I'm sure that this isn't a popular message to share in light of the cultural climate, but a true message that must be shared nonetheless. Thank you for having the courage.

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. ~ Timothy 4:3-4

This was an interesting read. Work on the formatting. It is difficult to follow without the breaks.
This is a chilling account of how Pastors can get power hungry and turn churches into cults This is a powerful message that everyone searching for something better should read.
Persuasion can carry God's promises. As you have shared, it can also carry poison. Thanks for the warning in your words.
The same scripture James quoted: Timothy 4: 3-4 came to my mind too as I read this. This was excellent, masterful account of all the stages and reasons and realizations you went through before, praise God, coming back to the truth you were being swayed from! This is so powerful with such a vital message! I would only suggest Para breaks to help make the reading easier. Great job!
Unfortunately, some "churches" serve as wolves in sheep's clothing. That's why it's so important to be as wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove. Good entry. Using paragraph breaks will make this much easier to read. All in all, good job!
