About

I’m just a regular person who happens to love Jesus. But the so-called “churches” who operate in his name….well, that’s quite another thing. This blog is not intended to insult Jesus or his true church, the called out ones. But rather, the absurd, and careless way some of these Hall’s of Shame conduct their 501C 3 tax exempt status fake houses of worship.
As well as having some fun doing it…

I withdrew from all man made organized churches a long time ago when I came to realize they bear no resemblance to the early church in the book of Acts. It makes no difference whether they are a denomination or non-denominational. “God doesn’t dwell in a house made with hands”.

TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 24God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Acts 17

These 501C 3 tax exempt churches, (and almost ALL of them are), do ignorantly “worship”, if you can call it that.
That is not to say that there aren’t some good folks in these bird cages who just haven’t come to the realization that Jesus never ordained his people to be dominated and controlled under a clergy-laity system.

That said; (and I could say a lot more)…..if you happen to go to one of these churches and are offended, I’m sorry. But it may be that you need to think about what I’ve said, seriously, and come out of that mess. God’s not in it hun, anymore than he’s in your “required 10% tithe”.
and….
If your not a Christian, then please do not judge all Christians by some of the looney tunes presented on this blog. Because real Christians who truly love Jesus and follow his teachings you’re not likely to find going to one of these man made churches, with man made doctrines and traditions of men found on nearly every street corner in America. There are exceptions, although few and far between.

This is why, I don’t feel guilt ridden by taking a slightly irreverant poke in the eye at these apostate churches. Frankly I get a kick out of some of the videos, and I hope if some of these church folks happen to come across this blog, they will take a good look at themselves and see if they are really being a good representative of who Jesus really is. As said, previously, there are exceptions and I recognize that, and give credit where it’s due.

However, I DO have a serious side, and I am concerned about what’s going on in the world, as well as the church. I would be in error and negligent as a Christian, if I were being complacent, and just focusing on the absurd and sometimes embaressing things Christians do. I mean, after all, we are seriously entering into very perilous times in these last days. You’d have to be totally blind not to see that. We love our country and family, and I feel the Lord wants us to be alert and know the signs of the times. So, I do intend to sprinkle this blog with current news that comes to my attention, as well as warnings to the Body of Christ.

A bit of personal info on me…I’m a single guy, who lives and works in Colorado. I help take care of my disabled mom physically and financially as best I can.

I’m workng on trying to be a better Christian, and Jesus has given me the grace to do that.

Blessings y’all,
Rob, the anarchist church guy

    Hey Rob, you strike me as an interesting person!!! πŸ™‚

    I think we might be on the same page as well, as when it comes to the bible, we’re talking about a book, written by men, edited by Kings that tore out the parts that offended them, and clergy who would occasionally gather to decide “Nahhh, the regular folk don’t need to hear that”.

    I myself, am agnostic. But, what I’ve been taught, and what I do believe about God (if we are right and he does exist), I believe that God knows each and everyone of us on a deep personal level. The idea that we are to follow like sheep a preacher and be good little automatons is ludicrous. I also have have a sincere problem with the “group think” that occurs anytime you put people together. Someone ALWAYS emerges as a leader, and I genuinely question the motives of that person. And the manner with which they coax and control their followers…group think is the kind of thing that makes me turn on my heel and walk away.

    As I grow older, I find myself leaning more and more toward Buddhism. I actually believe, that again, if God exists, much like a fork, in different places they have different names. And, they make different forms. Back to the fork example. Basically, you want an eating utensil. Go to China, and ask for a fork, and they may not understand at all what you are trying to say. Go to Hong Kong, ask for chop sticks, and you are good to go. And your basic needs are served, even though the appearance and the utility of the tool (not that I am referring to God as a tool) are slightly different.

    Does that make any sense?

    Looking forward to hearing more from you….

    • Hey, ZB, you are so right about many things you’ve said! It shows that you’ve done some deep thinking about this very important subject.First of all, please let me say that I have had a deep, and very real experience with the Real God that turned my life around big time. It was like the light bulb turned on for the first time, and then you go, “Wow, NOW I get it!”. Totally awesome. But by the same token, I’ve also had previously, a very dulling down experience with the entire bogus church scene. and that, right there is at the root of the problem. The difference between counterfeit and the authentic.
      This is way too serious a subject to be delved into within the context of a blog comment, but I’d like to hear more from you and your thoughts as well.
      Here is a guy I like very much, who’s witty, funny, and right on, who goes into the reasons the “church deal” is a farce. He nails it right square on the head.

      Let me know what you think. πŸ™‚

      Cheers,

    As I am at work, I cannot read too much of getrealchristianity as I am supposed to be working πŸ™‚

    But I did read his “about” section, and liked it. πŸ™‚

    What ideas in particular would you like me to expound upon?

    • You have the floor, ZB….whatever you feel like. πŸ™‚

      Cheers,
      Rob

      • zeroBelief says:

        Hmmm, what exactly does one say to that? πŸ™‚

        I don’t know. I just try to be a decent and nice person. Some days, that’s nigh impossible. I tend to get bent out of shape with those that feel they know what is best for you and seem he’ll bent on enforcing their sense of “right” upon you. I have friends who are devout christians, Muslims, atheist s, etc. We all get along out of mutual respect.

        And, I’d also like to think that on some level all of my friends are just a touch agnostic and respect that it’s rather difficult to believe any one person is right.

      • Some days, that’s nigh impossible. I tend to get bent out of shape with those that feel they know what is best for you and seem he’ll bent on enforcing their sense of β€œright” upon you“.

        Me too.For one thing, it won’t work, at least with people like us. In any case, in the concept of “real Christianity”, or any other religion, it is impossible to “force” anyone into believng something because there has to be a true spiritual transformation, not something you just say, “OK, that sounds cool, and I guess I’ll go along with that”.
        That’s where “religious wars in the name of whatever god” won’t work, and are so evil and wrong. You can’t force someone else to believe in some god at the point of a gun or sword.
        The Catholic church tortured people during the Inquistion to force them to believe in the Catholic god. They made a farce out of belief in Jesus Christ and laid the groundwork for a false concept of Christianity to take hold. Then during the reformation, as RL Dawson rightly observes, the nuts didn’t fall far from the tree. And so many of the false practices of Catholicism continued, including some burning at the stake of their own, etc. Horrible stuff! It’s all been so twisted from what it should be….

        Bottom-line, for thinking people, it’s important to get to the truth of the matter.Knowing whether God is real is just part of the issue. If one does come to the realization that indeed God is real, then the next problem…would be of course to try and ascertain, which God.

        Take care my friend,

        Rob

    Why would a so called anarchist have a problem with anyone seeking tax exemption? If Scientologists (or for that matter Catholics, or ANY other faith based organization) can create a tax shelter, every American should have a right to their own personal tax except belief system. Call it the “Church of Tax Freedom” if you want.

    • Simply because it brings any 501C3 “church” under the control of the federal government,,,,
      Hence, my title “church anarchist”. I’m opposed to mainstream organized religion in the form of so-called “churches”.
