    That's interesting. I'm the same way.

    I have the keys to 2 of the 3 churches in the "charge" I belonged to, and have often gone in by myself to do work. I loved the solitude, and would sit there all by myself and meditate. It is so peaceful.

    That's an interesting thing. In all of the 3 churches in the group I belonged to, there was only one other single man in attendance, and he came with his son and with his mother (his father stayed at home.) There were a handful of couples. and the majority were unaccompanied women...some married and others not (single or widowed.) It seems that men are almost always reluctant attendees.

    Seemed for some men the only chance of a good nap was in church. I know my uncle always slept through the sermons and my aunt only bothered him if he snored.

    I don't feel comfortable in a Pentecostal Church either, although I have only attended one Pentecostal service so I don't know if they are all like that. Then again, I don't feel comfortable in a Catholic service either, largely because I have to watch the people around me to know what I'm supposed to do next, and there is far too much exercise involved, with the kneeling, the standing up, and so on. I am also uncomfortable with loud, contemporary music in church services, and pretty much every large church as gone that route lately.

    I think it's just a matter of what we're used to, since most of us are uncomfortable with strange new things, particularly those that don't make any sense to us. That doesn't make them wrong, however.

    @Samual Yoder .. that should have never happened to you in church .I do not do religion or churches of any kind anymore. There are pros and cons to them all. Like all things in life Churches as a whole have become greedy, political, and misleading.

    Guess it is best to just keep on going, why keep hassling with it. It is not likely they are going to change me nor I them.....

    I found that many pastors don't know the Bible they preach from.
