Very good indeed. I feel for you because I,ve for 25 years in Pentecostal Churches, and I left for the same reasons. I tried hard yo be a “good Christian” but I always ended up in hypocrisy.

After leaving, I found a Greek Orthodox priest, who showed me what it is to be a true Christian. And it was the exact same things you describe: carting for those in need, loving everybody, not judging anybody, having an open heart and an open mind for the needs of a hurting humanity and, most of all, that I would always be a wretched man needing the help of God and others for my own troubles.

So I couldn’t agree more to your views. It’s what we do that matters, not what we say we believe. Because, as Christ said, “Thus the world will see your good DEEDS and glorify your Father in heaven”.
