I don't even go to church. I can't. There's just too many hypocrites there.
But Jesus Christ is my savior, and it isn't simply a "religion". I don't have to tithe my money to some preacher so hey can spend it on a drug-fueled weekend with a bunch of hookers.
I can go feed the hungry, and share the message of Jesus with those people, no church involved. I can get the message out, all on my own. I don't need a church. People like you, are the "church".
"Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet," - Acts 7:48.
I've been to churches, where when I suggested opening an outreach center for the church to the community... They shot it down, saying it would cost too much. Well guess what? God blesses the churches that actually do those things, and God's "church" is wherever His people are.
You don't need a building to go to every weekend, just to pray about the sins you committed during the week. You have a personal relationship with God, through Jesus Christ. He can, and will, answer your prayers. But only if you're willing to learn about Him, and care for His people, and do things for His "church".
That is what changed me. Jesus, my living Creator God YHVH, died for my sins... And He died for yours, too.
Don't let the bad examples that other "Christians" set, get in the way of that. It's a life-altering thing, and you'll never turn away from it unless you fall for sin, and love lies more than the truth. Yeah, you're a sinner, just like me. But the redeeming power of Christ's blood, washes away those sins, and makes even the most stained garments as white as snow.
It's not simply a religion, it really is a way of life, and a real tough act to follow. People want to compare Jesus to simple magicians, but, could you even think about being a magician like David Copperfield, Blaine, or Angel? Imagine you get on stage after Jesus' "act". You ain't gonna get a whole lotta applause.
We don't, and can't, ever measure up to that perfect example of a sinless man, who is Jesus Christ, God in the flesh.
And that is why it is such a simple thing for me to believe that I'm saved, because my God died for my sins. I love my Heavenly Father. He changed me to who I am today, and I believe I am only a better person because of Him.
He can change you, too.
