Church Issues

Post by godseeker0 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 11:36 am

Dear brothers and sisters,

I'm not sure if this top is on the correct forum, apologies if its not.

18 months ago I joined my first formal church which I stayed at for 9 months, during which time I was a serving member. The Holy Spirit was present there, they preach the Word and have a heart for the lost. However for several personal issues I was convinced that I would be better off leaving them.

Six months later I am churchless, writing this feeling lost and not at all sure about what to do next. I still read my Bible regularly do the same things that I did when I was in fellowship with the church(Pray, Worship). However, the Spirit is not as strong as it once was and I am concerned about this. I am also concerned that I am still struggling with sin, the main ones being porn, lust and a feeling of guilt over leaving the church. I feel like my demons are getting the better of me.

I feel as though I am unable to move on from this, I realise that I was wrong to leave the church irrespective of what issues I had with them. Six months have passed now and I feel that I really need to be in a church, I feel its where I belong and the best place for me. However, I do not want to go back to my previous Church.

I am a relatively new Christian and I feel I just dont have experience on my side. I feel lost and alittle hopeless, please could someone help me with these issues.

Thanks,
Godseeker

My friend, a good Biblical principle to live by is Isaiah 55:12. God will always lead us with peace and joy. If you feel genuine peace & joy at a particular place then Jesus is present as He is the Prince of Peace!

Welcome to the forum!
