We went to a new church today, the United Church of Christ.
Now before I go any further I just want to say that these were some of the nicest people I've met in a long time. They welcomed us with open arms.
Now to why we are not going back. Much to our surprise the pastor was a woman and I don't agree with it (1 Timothy 2:12). The pastor also told Derek "We welcome homosexuals with open arms". I'm not saying they don't need God's love because they do! I'm also not saying that they shouldn't be in church, how else will they know that they are living in sin? But by welcoming them into their church without telling them that their behavior is wrong and sinful they are condoning the lifestyle of homosexuality. Which God clearly states is a sin. I just don't want my children growing up thinking that's o.k.
I'm praying for all of these people. I'm also praying that we find a church soon.
