Leaving church and finding Jesus


Face it folks finding a good church is getting harder and harder to do these days. Donna and I have left first Baptist church here in Modesto because they are PDL'd, Willow Creek'd and all kinda junk is emerging for the youth. Sometimes its good to stick in and make a stand, sometimes its good to just wipe the dust off your feet.Here are a few suggestions for finding a good church.
Take a look at there bookstore-if they even sell Purpose Driven Life just leave dont even stay for one service.
Find a church that uses expository preaching-very hard to find these days.
And if your just tired maybe just have a bible study with your friend-informal and just warn each other of the things that are coming.
I would encourage you to give to good ministries.
Ken Silva has some great sermons on his website that you could read and talk about with your home group. Perhaps consider giving to Kens ministry. Im not a 10% guy we give what we can and we can even give more than 10 percent.
Find a good solid ministry to support or find a good place that will help feed the poor and clothe the naked.
I believe the Lord wants us to give whether we are in a church building or not.
I would also challenge you to not use your giving as a deduction on your taxes even though you can.
Give and just let it go.
Here is a link to Kens website

Whatever you do use caution and check out a church thoroughly. I would suggest you never formally join or sign any membership covenant.
We are all members of the body of Christ if you are saved anyway.
And if you do join a body of believers I suggest you give freely of your time and resources.
Find a church that preaches the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
