It bothers me to see churches advertising “All are welcome.” It simply isn’t true!
What about the person looking to disrupt church service?
Those seeking to push an ungodly agenda?
Someone seeking to harm those gathered to worship?
The pedophile looking for a next victim?
Not all are welcome! However those who choose to follow Christ. Those who are curious about the Church. The person struggling with addiction, loneliness, fear, depression, or rejection. Now you are all welcome! But not perfect people. Perfect people do not exist in Church.
