I have been a christian for years and the longer I am sick the more I have been put off going to church and church life. To me it just doesn't seem to reflect real life challenges or longterm illness. Everything is just to simplistic or fake. You are expected to get over what ever is wrong with you through prayer, which doesn't reflect what the bible says.. My faith in fellow church going christians is really low, but my faith is jesus is stronger than ever. I would love to find a church that has a realistic view of life and illness, however I don't think that will happen! - maybe an online one?. Has anyone else found this?.
