I have seen many people ask the question, "If its not the truth what else is there?" I imagine that most people want to remain in a Christian faith so I want to build a matrix for one to use as a guide in finding a new church if he or she feels a need to worship. I personally don't attend any church and I will keep my personal beliefs to myself. I would just hate to see people who are used to being abused by their faith hunt out and find another cult. I am calling this Matrix "Good Church, Bad Church". Here are my humble suggestions. Also, if you are atheist or agnostic please be respectful. You will only scare people who want to believe away. Some people just want to worship, while others don't.
If your church teaches the Widow's Mite as a tool to resource more money from you, you have found a Bad Church.
If your church encourages discourse and allows members to have contrary opinions, you have found a Good Church.
If your church teaches an unquestionable Hierarchy, you have found a Bad Church.
If your church is full of people who openly have problems and accepts others without question you found a Good Church. If you are with people whom are seemingly perfect with no problems what so ever they are probably riding unicorns and you should be careful of the mushrooms you consume.
If everyone there likes you be careful human beings don't like everyone. It's okay for some people to not like you and you not like them. The question arises do the people who don't like you treat you with human decency even though they don't like you.
If everyone looks and acts the same, you have found a Bad Church. This is systematic of the church having so much control everyone bends to the church's whim.
If your church controls information, you have found a Bad Church. If any claim is made that the people in power are given secret abilities, reasons, insights, or anything similar, you have been warned.
If your church has an attitude of "look at me, look at me!!", you have found a Bad Church.
If your church is quietly trying to make your community a better place by helping others in need this is a good sign. If all they talk about is the good they do, run away.
If they minister who works two days a week drives the most expensive car in the parking lot, you have probably found a Bad Church.
The Number one rule. Trust yourself. If you get a feeling in your gut "something isn't right", investigate that feeling. Don't wait and don't except excuses. If someones honest, they will always answer to criticism and appreciate it eventually.
There are literally millions of churches and faiths in this world. If you are drawn to worship, make sure you are looking out for people who wish to prey off of your prayers.
