– In order to belong in this
tribe, you have to conform, and if you have doubts,
you’re a dangerous person. How many leaders have been
built up in these mega churches that fall because the
pressure’s just too much. And as I look back, we were two kids trying so hard to get it right. My name is Lisa Gungor. I’m a recent author, I’m a
musician and a songwriter. My mom and I found this wild church. They called themselves the Holy Rollers, and from the moment you
walked in, it was loud and people were running around the church. I just think it’s awesome. So while a lot of people think it’s crazy, filled with crazy people,
I loved it and I was in. I ended up going to college
and I start dating this boy who’s super Christian. We get married really young. We’re too young to even rent
a car when we’re married. We didn’t drink or cuss. So we end up getting a
job at a really big church in Michigan. And this church was the
size of a mall, it’s huge, it was about 10,000 people. We built a house out in the country. They paid for our car, for our gas. They paid for Michael’s school. We were 20 years old, and
we had this dream job. We didn’t have sex with each
other before we were married. We waited to kiss, we did it all right, we had this transactional ideal of God and that’s why we landed this
really great, awesome job. We started trying to get pregnant
and couldn’t get pregnant and people would tell me,
well, just pray and believe. Like, just say it and it will happen. And I thought, I just don’t
know how that can be true. We were traveling the world,
we were going overseas and playing to sometimes
60,000 people in arenas. The more we ran into
other people’s stories, the more we started doubting
what we’d been given. Michael and I took this trip in Europe. From Rome, we took trains up to Krakow. We visited the concentration camps. We walked through the crematoriums. And it’s real hard to come back to America and pray for something
when you have these images of people’s hair in piles and
children’s shoes in piles. Your ideas on what a good God is can change pretty dramatically. So I came back and found
myself trying to pray for us to have a baby
or pray for our church or pray for these different things, and I just kept thinking
about the concentration camp and how my whole perspective on my faith has been a transaction. If I’m good enough or if I pray enough or if I believe enough,
then I get blessings and I get a baby or a good life. It’s not how life is. We all have this perspective
on who is in and who is out. For Michael and I, that
began to change slowly. You have to conform
and if you have doubts, you’re a dangerous person. I remember looking around
going, what am I doing here? What am I building with my life? We realized we’re no good
for this place that we’re at because our ideas had changed so much and that we needed to leave. I started weeping and
crying and freaking out, going, what are we doing, we
don’t know what we’re doing. Do you realize what we just left? We left all of our security. And we started becoming
heretics, you know. We go up to Denver, we end up starting a little house church in our apartment. Our whole goal for it
was that it was inclusive and that it was vulnerable
and that it was this place that we’d always dreamed of church being. More questions and more doubt were arising for Michael and I. Our heretic levels kept
shifting and changing and kind of one-upping each other. Eventually, Michael and I, we get pregnant and I was really glad for that
because it didn’t feel like our daughter was this answer. We really went through this
trial and this suffering and now we’re getting this baby girl. Our ideas of God are deconstructing. What is that we still believe? But Michael looks at me and just says, I don’t believe in God anymore, like I can’t believe any of it, and he just ends up talking more. And I remember just
freezing in my whole body ’cause there’s always been,
I was okay with the questions but I wasn’t okay with that. I end up getting pregnant
again and we go through a whole tour with me being pregnant and for Michael, he feels
all this freedom in atheism because he’s not struggling anymore. For me, I’m feeling all this anxiety because I want him to
believe a certain thing and I want myself to
believe a certain thing. And I’m still just struggling
hard to belong and to be okay. And I ended up having to quit a tour early because I’m having, our baby’s
having difficulty growing. She’s born a month and a half early. She is just beautiful and
like with our first daughter, we’re both crying and
it’s just this beautiful, beautiful moment, and then she turns blue. I remember this nurse
coming over and she’s shaking and looking really worried. And she tells us our
daughter has Down Syndrome. And so in the days that
follow, we find out that Lucy has two heart
issues and she has to have a heart surgery her second day of life and then she has to have
another heart surgery when she’s six months old. Everything really changed for me. So I feel like this story
that I’ve been living my whole life kind of came to this climax with Lucy’s birth. When Lucy was born, we had
this huge social media blowup. And there’s stories in magazines
and all over the Internet about our heresy, and we
were completely pushed out of the church world, of this
tribe that we really loved, and really painful and
devastating at so many of times. Looking back on all of
it, I’m deeply grateful for all of the things that happened and I don’t want what we used to have. We live in a different head space now, it’s a completely different perspective. And the connection I
feel with my daughters, there’s no us verus them,
there’s no you and I, there’s no winners and losers. Part of my dream is that
people wouldn’t be so afraid and so scared. I know a lot of people are
still in this very conservative, fundamental bubble and
they can be so afraid to break out of that for fear of what will happen to their lives. And this happens in any religion, so my dream is that we’re not so afraid. (contemplative music) – Hey guys, we’re Pero Like! – Do you know it’s

    No where in the Holy Bible does it say you have to perfect to go to heaven! Infact the opposite is true! As Jesus went out to all the lost to save them! He was often found around the less fortunate! Witnessing to hookers, thieves, adulters, murderers, thieves, tax collectors etc! Those who the world had rejected! When they asked Jesus about this? He said he came to save the world and not to judge it! And he did save the world on the cross! For John 14:6 Holy Bible says…Jesus said…I am the way, the truth and the life! No man comes unto the Father GOD, but by me! And John 3:16 For GOD so loved the world that he gave his only begotten SON that WHO SO EVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE! There you have it! TRUTH! Yes some mega churches seem overwhelming, some fake or disconnected somehow? Truth is there are many good Christian Churches out there that are Holy Bible scripture reading good old fashioned Jesus churches! You must find one that fits your lifestyle, and a place you and your family feel comfortable! Try perhaps a smaller local church? Try Church of GOD, Church of Christ, Baptist Church, Methodist Church, Luthern Church, Vineyard, Interdenominational Christian Church etc. These are all good ones, and not too large or fake! Don't let some large church turn you away from your salvation or GOD! That would be a tragic loss, and not very practical! You have choices! If you are not saved yet? And want to be? Heres how….

    Steps To Go Up In The Great Rapture And Salvation!:

    REPENT OF ALL YOUR SINS TO GOD!
    NICE THING ABOUT GOD IS YOU DONT HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO GO TO HEAVEN! AND THERE IS NO SIN TOO BIG GOD CAN NOT FORGIVE! HE IS IN THE BUSINESS OF FORGIVING SINS! ALL ARE WELCOME TO COME ALONG! BUT YOU MUST BE SAVED! HERES HOW……

    1.    Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior!

    PRAY:
    Dear Lord Jesus Christ I realize that I am a sinner, and that you died on
    the cross for all my sins. I ask your forgiveness for all my sins right now,
    and ask that you please come into my heart and be my personal Lord and Savior
    forever! I thank you for dying on the cross for all my sins, and for loving me
    unconditionally! I humbly accept you as my personal Lord and Savior in my
    heart-Amen
                                     

    Get Holy Spirit Water Baptism at a Christian Church!
    This is needed to seal your faith in Jesus Christ, and
    provide you with the Holy Spirit to help you!

    Get a Holy Bible and read it! Get connected in a scripture reading Bible based church!
    Get connected with others who share your same interests and values!

    4.  Don’t get left behind! Be wise, be ready, be
    raptured! May GOD richly bless you!

    church is just a name… people are what matter. Thats all thats ever mattered. Man in its attempt to pursue God have failed miserably by establishing what they call the church. The breadcrumbs of failure are every where, but due to power, control and money they stick with the same methods of doing things. Its sad and evil. I was apart of three churches and God told me "this is not what to do" years later. So many people just starting out in pursuit of God go down this path and come out dry and broken hearted and nothing is done about it. Love God Live Free!! God is love and His love is what we all need. Were always saying we need love,,, but theres millions of definitions of what love is to people but God is the true source for it. Believe me I know. nothing satisfies and nothing keeps evil men at bay like the love of God! My heart goes out to y'all!!!! Much love!!!

    Any Christian who judges outsiders and condemns them to hell are just projecting what is inside of them. They are already in hell. And they will not get out of it until they repent and change their lives… I don't mean "repent" in the way Christians think of repentance. I mean truly looking within and changing one's self. And apologizing to the other person or group.
    But some never will come out of their ignorance, arrogance and self righteousness. They are as bad or worse than the Devil they condemn. Another superstition by the way.. The devil is right there in the mirror, all you have to do is recognize it,, own up to it and right your wrongs.

    It was a very cruel time and a cruel death I had to watch ,
    Jesus is still Lord and thats
    where I stand and live.
    God created good and evil,it's in the psalms.

    The prosperity gospel is such a joke. Remember what happened to Jesus, our example? And all but one of the disciples being put to death? Then all the Christians who were fed to lions and burnt as Roman candles? Sometimes I wonder if these kind of people have ever read the Bible or church history! It seems like a mindless emotional faith that has no basis on anything but feeling. It is basically atheism in a different form.

    Praise be to God, praise the Lord Jesus Christ, and Blessed be his Holy Mother. This pastor in her youth had a faith ripe with the Prosperity Gospel and a cultural upbringing. The house built on sand comes to mind. All praise and Glory to God the Father, the Son, and the Holy spirit now and forever. Even among doubt and spiritual dryness may the Lord rebuke Satan and lead all Christians to everlasting life. God….no matter what. Let us never forget many of those souls she witnessed in those concentration camps held on to their faith until the very end. May they enjoy paradise forever, and their radiance rebuke the reprobates and fallen souls into repentance least the be lost for eternity.

    It is because people are sinners that each one needs a community/chrurch. Before the scriptures even existed in writen text, Apostole Paul writes letters to specific churches, never to individuals:
    2 Thessalonians 2:15
    15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.

    1 Timothy 3:15
    15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.

    Most Christians (whether of the “right” denomination or the wrong ones) do not understand who Jesus Christ is. Most pastors repeat, “Not by works but by faith alone in Christ” and most people say amen to that without even understanding what that means. What does it mean to have faith in Christ? Read the Bible folks. Jesus Christ said that the Queen of Sheba will be a judge in the end. She wasn’t even Jewish (I don’t think). She wasn’t Presbyterian. Wasn’t Mormon. She heard of the Wisdom of Solomon. She sought after that Wisdom. The Way of God. Logos. This Wisdom of God BECAME Christ at a point in history. Solomon asked for and embraced God’s Way. So did this lady. There’s a BIG difference between “Good Works” and “Religious Works”. Sure, salvation comes from what Christ did. But our Good Works is the Way of Christ. This is what James is talking about. And I believe this is what Mr. Gungor is trying to express. And this is what Christ talked about. When we seek the Way, Truth, Light of God (and not denomination, doctrine, religion), our foundation gets to be on the Rock. What the good Samaritan did is the Way of God.

    If God is love and a good God, why the evil in the world? Why didn’t God stop Herod’s massacre of innocent children? Why didn’t God stop Hitler from what he did to the Jews? Why didn’t/doesn’t God keep people from dying from heart attacks and cancer? Why doesn’t God keep 60 millions people from dying every year? I’m not trying to answer for God. But I want to say that it’s because we all are here for a very brief time. We are ALL on this Titanic and destined to perish soon or later either from this or from that and from anything and everything. To put too much sorrow on death is like being sad that those people are no longer on the Titanic. In reality, all of us should be in an extreme hurry to find a life boat and get off the ship as soon as possible. And knowing for fact that God has a personality and knowing that God instituted the laws in the spiritual and the physical world, I can’t help but be hopeful. Why do the spiritual have rules and laws that govern them? Why can’t they do anything they want? Why only when we open the doors…? Because of Authority.

    I hear you, and it would have been scary to finally step away from what for so long was ‘your tribe’.
    Most people become fearful when they hear someone like you talk so freely about your doubts. Others get angry, perhaps too close for comfort.

    For me, I could have gone that way, because I grew up in church, a place where I experienced little of God. He seemed to be the God of my parents.
    I lost my way in high school. Well, high school in Amsterdam, that is.
    My dad used to say Amsterdam was like the old Sodom and Gomorrah.

    So, in my late teens, there were a number of things I felt Jesus initiated, uncalled for.
    I feel decades later, that’s when we met. I ended up walking out of a very good job with the Federal Reserve Bank in A’dam. Into a very unsure, but exciting adventure at 21.

    I continued on a journey with Jesus, into countries, continents, sharing my faith, living with locals. Often by myself with little or no money. It always worked out. I felt cared for, even when lonely. Awesome memories.

    I can’t say my faith is based on a single event, but a series of events, including how I met my wife in Australia.
    My faith is the result of what I read in his book, but then how he shows up in my life, my family, my church.

    Maybe, there is still something that you have missed. He is not so hard to find, but you have to look.. 😊

    so ! this is basically a video how she lost her faith and became secular. If someones struggling with their faith ,this is for you.
    "EITHER YOU BELIEVE IN GOD OR NOT, HE EXIST" !! Even i'm struggling (not spiritually) at present. So, remember to count your blessings, not what you don't have. GOD BLESS YOU !!

    You see what's wrong here, her faith was on 'the mega church' and not simply on Jesus and the Word of God. So sad.

    The title of this video is a bit problematic to begin with. You don't put your faith in a church or the members of any church, because every church is full of people who are not yet perfect, and in many instances full of serious deficiency. Whether it be a mega church or a small church, if that church is truly governed by the principles of Scripture, then it is indeed a good and wholesome church.

    The only difference here is.. Believing a God and believing a Church!
    A temple and a God has a huge difference!!

    Religion is created by men who want to control the mass/people, believe in God, not the religion, religion kills, religion divides us, have a direct relationship with God thru meditation and prayers and be sincere, Practice Jesus teaching, love, understanding and have compassion.

    It's the message that matter.
    The message of Christ.
    The finished work of Christ, the grace, the hope, the cross, the love of God, our need for repentance and ask for forgiveness, living a Christian life, the great commission, faith and patience in times of suffering, the personal relationship with Jesus.
    These things is very much needed to preach in Church.

    As I've heard your testimony and come to a conclusion that, this is not your fault how you felt uncertain and not trust in God because, the truth is God is spirit and the Messiah through whom we pray is the Head of the Church (Assemnly) as we are taugh we are the Instrument of His Body and Holy Spirit, never by an institution of any so-called churches. Perhaps what you lack understanding is that you and your husband's experience was used as an instrument for Messiah to testifying against what the Holy Spirit was tryna teach you out of them, by which testing every spirits, divides and search out the Words of truth for your clarity approves by the Spirit. As always to have faith with patients and the work of your hand diligently guided towards the Father's will. Jesus taught His disciples to be wise as serpent and harmless as dove, by which it is definite to take heed how you hear His saying. Jesus Himself thoughrouly instructed His followers how to Walk is His footstep and says whoever enter not by Me, the same is a rubber and thief, they only there to steal, kill and destroys,(false ministries, teachers and prophets) yet however Jesus also says whoever enter through Me, the same shall go in and out find pasture. I am the Way, The Truth and the Life. Jesus also taugh examples of the parable of the kingdom of heaven, "A man went into his field to plant good seed but an enemy has come put poison in them too, therefore my dear beloved if indeed you were made new in Him, no chance you'd look back. "For No one having put his hand of the plow, and looking back in fit for the kingdom of God." As humble and advising as I can be, do not let what the Father has promised through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the kingdom of which Jesus also bestow into His disciples easily slipped away from your hearts. Clings your ears to His living words, let the Psalm of hymns be a comfort of revelation to you and your husband and forsake not His ever mindful covenant which He made with His servant Israel which Jesus Messiah fulfilled by shedding His previous blood for all the people who chose to believe , and indeed a Light has been provided for the nations as well. As each of us as followers the work is to believe in Him, clings to Him, seek His Face and His kingdom first. I intend not to contrary you nor your decision but as Jesus says, take heed what you speak (say) for by them you will be judged and by them you'll be condemned. Also whoever deny Him before men, the Son of God will also deny him before the Father. Beloved ones, be of Good Courage, He has over come the world made a triumph on the cross when he died paid the death penalty, by His Grace we were made saved, therefore grace for grace. REMEMBER, WE WALK ONLY BY FAITH AND ONLY GOD APPOITED TIMING WILL HEAL AND DELIVERED US ALL, in the name of Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ). Amen!

    God’s inconvenient Truth: God told us specifically of this time. Be not surprised. Go see it for yourself.

    2 Timothy 3 King James Version (KJV)

    3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

    2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

    3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

    4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

    5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

    6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

    7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    Deconversion. Believers get upset in losing faith. I never converted to begin with. I never found the bible convincing. Talking snakes and donkeys. Not believable. A God commanding horrible genocides. Men living a thousand years ascending to heaven on a fiery chariot propelled by a whirlwind! No matter how crazy these stories are people continue to believe them without much question. Oh they are symbolic! God regrets creating mankind. Wouldnt he know in advance? Yet knowing in advance on his regret in order to still regret and still create mankind. Sorry that is not omniscience. Cant find Adam and Eve until they come out of the bushes admitting they picked the fruit. Where art thou Adam? That is not omniscience! This continues throughout the bible! A God who needs a blood atonement because 2 curious people sinned from a tree. Nonsense! We evolved. Also people back then believed Jesus would return in their generation just not the exact day hour. It's been 2000 years and this bull and fear continues for no good reason. The ones in power invented this crap. Life can have so much to offer when you get rid of this God. I'm not dismissive! There could still be God but certainly not the God of the bible or anyones God. No book could contain it not even the bible of this 2 faced God. For those certain ones dont bother bombarding me with scripture. It wont work. Love you anyways. Hello to atheists and agnostics too. All love and take care from Buddhist/agnostic Lee.

    God never asked us to do all of those things that we do and get bogged down with. Jesus only told us to "make disciples before He ascended back to heaven. He never told us to get religious, as a matter of fact He got on the cases of the religious rulers of His day for their hypocrisy. Many are bogged down with church work and soon get burned out. BTW the way there is no such thing as an atheist. God has put eternity into the hearts of man.

    God isn't in control of sin. He created the world, and it turned it's back on him. He can change it, but if he doesn't there is always a reason.

    Ask Florence Welsh, maybe she could write any actual Christian songs rather than other Religious bands.
