Church Politics

Church politics make me want to stop going to church.

So sad but so true! It happens everywhere.

I did change churches for that reason. The 'elders and pastor' had decided it was okay for them to judge others and it was making life miserable. The remaining members eventually 'asked' the pastor to move on because of their undue influence.

I'm sorry :(

It seems like no arena can escape politics

Amen sister! Isn't it crazy that the church has more politics than the national government sometimes?!!!?

If you need to make a change then make a change, but don't stop going to church. Remember keep your eyes on the Lord and not on man.
Don't be discouraged, this is the kind of thing that bring Satan pleasure.

It's always hard to remember that churches are made up of human beings that are faulty and flawed. ((hugs)) to you, Mimi.

It must make God sad to see what a mess we make out of what he intended to be "good" about his church. Take a few deep breaths and let a bit of time pass before you make any big decisions. You may decide you want to stay in the church where you are, or you may decide to go somewhere else. Just keep going. Don't let stopping completely even be an option. OK?
Hugs!!

Being a Pastors Kid...I totally know what you are saying. Hang in there...

Sorry to hear this is affecting you. I hate to say it, but this is why we don't get "involved" anymore. It seems safer that way.

Yikes, that sounded cynical.

You'd hope it'd be the one place drama wouldn't happen, but nope.
