How many people have ever encountered rudeness or disrespect at church?
I am trying to understand some of the reasons why people do not like to go to church and if one of the reasons is due to the treatment they have received while attending a church service.
I have. My ears were stretched to 1 1/4 inch and I got severely judged for it. I love Jesus, but I think his followers tend to do a terrible job at following his teaching,
I think many churches are rude and disrespectful jumping visitors to their church before they have a chance to decide if they like it or not. Why do they think anyone would think about joining a church they know nothing of. It takes a few visits at least and it seems pretty obvious they are more concerned with your tithe than your soul. I think many will answer for this because many they run off may not even be saved, and I think that is rude too, asking if they are or not. They are suppose to act like Jesus would and surely He would never act like this! He would simply welcome and show His love through His actions I believe.
I have been to Catholic churches and Protestant ones. It feels like the Protestant churches have a more family / community feeling. On paper, this sounds good, but from what I've experienced, this usually leads to gossip or people talking behind your back about your lifestyle and life choices.

Why are there so many churches?In a neighboring city there is a population of 9000 and there are 126 churches. Isn't this excessive and a waste of money(for the rents and building costs)? What's the point in having so many.

Do you think some modern-day clergy are just free-loaders?The parishioners pay everything for them or just about everything. The house they live in, the church, meals, utilities are all paid by the parishioners. They do not even pay taxes. It is all done by tithing and building...
