Born and bred in Methodist church in Zimbabwe. I loved going to Sunday school, but hated participating in some of the church activities. Once played as a donkey in a Jesus play. “Of all the roles imagine Lol.”
I am a Christian, was introduced to the faith by my parents, reinforced by 6 years of mission boarding school. I even sang in the choir, those were the days. I once became a church devotee when I was in form four (4) but with time it faded.
One problem I have with my church is that of the “Church rules”. Anyone from Methodist will agree with me that there are too many rules which at times are not even necessary, am sure so with many other mainline churches.
The church should always strive to meet the needs of men and women as it brings the good news of the salvation message of Jesus .
Church should be a place to worship, fellowship, etc but this has totally shifted in the “modern churches today” of today. Churches are now more into money than helping people. You want to see a pastor you pay, on top of tithe, there are other “church offering required”.
I used to go to church every Sunday, I would make sure of that. Now adays, not so much not by choice though. I Work out of town and only come back to Harare after three months. The only church available where am at are the Apostle sect, one which I vowed never to attend.
I am far from being perfect but I try to do right with God.
