Does anyone here know of this church - or remember it ?
I was a practicing member of this church for nearly eight years and still consider myself a devout and diligent follower.
A member for 8 yrs and ya have no contacts?
Maybe its flown the coop
No - it is definately alive and well and I am hoping somebody here on hubpages will remember it and respond here.
Not all churches proselytize and indoctrinate their kids into their beliefs, this church served a serious purpose and when that purpose was overcome it had no further need to exist as a body. Shame all the many thousands of ohter churches did nto do the same when their beliefs were found to be nonsense, or the opposition that caused them to rise up had been overcome.
How was their purpose overcome ,I wonder? since any Church (majority) purpose is to care for one another, and a good church would be outreaching to its community too.
With the doctrines you describe ,the Church of Turkey sounds more like a club and I guess its members moved on, or the basis of their convictions dissolved.
I suggest a Google search would be more effective.
NO - this an ARMENIAN church that happens to be in Turkey, though a multidenominational church sounds a better bet than a money collecting pile of white concrete in Arizona.
THE church of Turkey was something quite different and unique - and its sole purpose was to care for one another. The circumstances that led to its formation were overcome and so the church ceased to have its primary purpose and so dissolved naturally. The underpinning ideals are still relevant however and it would resurrect if circumstances arose again - like any true defender of liberty.
I do not know of this church, but would be very interested in it, to find out about it I mean; interesting
I lost this thread due to the demise of AP - does anyone out there remember the Church of Turkey ？If not I will provide enlightmenment
In the 50's and 60's in the Royal Navy anyone was excused duties to attend the church of their choice - Church of Turkey was the 'officially' recognised escape route to the pub
The 'denomination' was recognised in the book and the whole performance of registering and granting the requisite leave pass always carried out with a perfectly straight face.

Does anyone else feel that organized religion is built on a foundation of making you feel guilty?I feel that in order for an organized religion to run successfully it must be predicated on the fact that you must feel guilty on a number of levels. Guilty if you: 1. Aren't coming to church. 2. Don't...

I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...

Have you, or anyone you know of, ever had a close encounter? When did it take place? Were there any drugs involved? Did you tell the authorities? What race of aliens were involved? Was the experience angelic or demonic in nature? Did the ones who made contact with you seem good or evil? Did you...

I'm a father of two who used to party my tail off back in the day, but reading what some kids had to say was a big eye opener. One wrote, "Youth are unaware that they are being eaten by their systems. They only care on what they feel now and not what they will feel afterwards." I just...
