I've been out of Christian churches for about 5 years now. I am still a believer in a supreme being, and I still believe in the teachings of Christ in regards to how we would be best suited to live our lives in a way that is uplifting and postive. That being said, I regard much of the bible to be written by men and full of errors which is why I cannot really bring myself to attend church anymore. I just can't sit there and pretend that the bible is error free and am still surprised that so many people are not willing to question the hypocrisies in the Christian churches.

I guess I would find a religion that doesn't require you (or at least guilt you) to give money to pay for elaborate facilities and I would find a church that truly follows the teachings of Christ in love, forgiveness, humbleness, and charity. Not sure where to find a church like that and I have tried a lot since moving back to TX.

Count me in!
Hey, can we add an end of the world scenario? Maybe on the 3rd month of the year in 2013 on the 3rd day we all disappear and end up congregated in a bar for a big party that nobody else can get too? That would be excellent!
