New Year’s Dilemma

Also at your times of rejoicing—your appointed festivals and New Moon feasts—you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the Lord your God.” (Numbers 10:10 NIV)

A new year, but I am not going to rehash my previous post, but a thought...

My boyfriend keeps asking me whether I want to go back to church… I am in a dilemma. (My boyfriend is not religious)

I still believe in God, but I don’t believe in the Church.

There is a church, I went to their Easter service & it was brilliant. It gave me brief reminder of why my faith had been so strong for many years, but I am still very dubious of Churches.

I have been a Christian all my life & in the last 6 years I have not. I have never had any close friends who were Christian, to be honest I have no Christian friends. Many Christians that I have met have been hypocrites especially those of my age group.

I end up befriending older Christian people as they are so much more genuine, but I can’t really delve into the faith part of the religion as since I have left Church I have become a very sinful different person.

Can a person begin again in a judgemental Church environment? I truly don’t think so.

So back to the dilemma… Should I go back to Church or should I find something else to fill my spiritual void?

Despite my previous post, I feel like my New Year has already been tainted for the worst because I have made plans to travel with my old Church that are the most judgemental, distant & cliquey group I have ever had the misfortune to be around.

Now can I despite starting my year on the wrong footing, go back to Church or should I just stay away?

I guess blogging this dilemma isn’t going to help me decide, but at least it’s not sitting in my head.
