I remember going into churches when I was a JW for wedding or funeral and feeling a sense of dread. I thought the demons were going to come out of the walls at me. And of course I had the self-rightous attitude that the church would be destroyed soon in armegeddon.
Recently I've been helping teach a karate class at a local Baptist church. The one thing I noticed is how warm and friendly the church is. I'm not talking about the people, but the church itself. Lots of saying up about Jesus and how to be a good person. The entire place seems very inviting. Unlike a kingdom hall that is very cold and uninviting. They seem more like a library than a place of worship. I don't go to this church, just helping my sensei with teaching a new class. Who know though, maybe one day my wife and I will start attending.
Man I just thought of something, I'm going to get a double whammy if the local witnesses find out about this. I'm practicing karate in a Baptist church. Two definete no-no's. I could really care less thought.
