When Is It OK to Leave a Church?

Episode 751 Show Notes 

From the Show

Sometimes we can come out of churches and have a bitter attitude. I would suggest that we still be chatritiable. Pray to the Lord, “help me to encourage my friends and family members who are still there so that they might experience the grace and joy that I’ve experienced as I’ve come to understand the Word of God more.”

–Adriel Sanchez

  2. Is there any difference or preference between cremation and burial?
  3. When Cain was exiled after killing Abel, who was he so afraid of hurting him? Were there other people in the world at that time?
  4. I grew up in an apostolic pentecostal church but I am now going to a Bible-centered church. My question is: is it normal to experience spiritual warfare as you transition out of church traditions?
