Organized churches generally bother me. From time to time, I go check one out and something always turns me off.
I was actually close to becoming an official member of one recently and I went through the 6 week orientation class that you have to do before becoming a member. The first few weeks were fine, it went through the basic beliefs of the church and helped make sure that it was really clear what the church taught about Jesus, etc. But, the last couple of weeks were an hour and a half each about how much we were expected to tithe. How it should be from our gross income before taxes and we should do 10% no matter what. They made me feel like I was doing something wrong and I wasn't even a member yet. It felt like an audit or something. I think that place was pretty cult-ish. Also, after one of those classes we went back to the main service where people were speaking in tongues and someone else was translating. No thanks. If God wants to speak to me, he knows what languages I understand.
