People at their worst
I am a grand daughter of a preacher and my Grand Father always told me if you have nothing good to say about people then don't say it at all. I truly kept this in my life and although I have been far from perfect, I have always tried to treat people with kindess and have gotten along with people fairly well.
My heart was heavy to leave my job, because the so called christian people who worked there were horrible not only to me but to each other. The main culprit: My boss. Not only did she talk about all of us, but made fun of people too. It was a very sad situation. I lost complete respect for her the day she was making fun of an employee who walked funny. But wait she was a christian. She always did nice things for people in her church. It wasn't enough we worked in oncology and had the sadness of patients dying everyday, but then to put up with that shinanigans.
For a year and a half I struggled every day to go and be nice and keep my mouth shut because I hated what they stood for. Everyone talking about each other behind their backs to the point I just had to start looking for a new job.
I finally found a new job with better pay and in a much better environment. The Friday before I left for vacation, as I was leaving, I emailed my boss to let her know that I was leaving and that I would give her my formal resignation when I returned on the following Monday. I had to wait almost three weeks to go to orientation for my other job so I told her I would work up until then.
When I returned that Monday, she not only told me I couldn't work my two weeks out, but was screaming like a three year old as I exited the building. I couldn't understand this behavior because I was a good employee. She yelled "Good Bye" "I hope you like your new place" and then when she went inside she told my coworkers that I called her the B word. I never said a word to her. In one instant she went from loving me so much to a hateful, mean individual
I stopped going to church a long time ago because for one thing church's have become all about money. My Grand Father and Uncle who both were ministers never took up a collection, but had a basket in the back of the church. The second reason I stopped going to church is because I got tired of seeing people praise God on Sunday then see them on Monday cursing the ground you walked on.
If you are a Christian then act like one. The one thing I do know is this: if you think you are going to heaven with behavior like the ones above, I can surely tell you that your are not. Im glad to leave that unhealthy work environment and will do it again if I have to be treated that way by people.
Does Satan really have horns and wings
Where does all this anger come from
Christianity is an iffy subject these days. There is more talking then walking the right path. How many times have I heard people praising the lord day and night and almost cut your throat because you said something they didnt like.

Awe I am so sorry for what you have been going through. I think in this day and time most of us can doubt our faith. Times are trying and people cruel but if we stop believing then what else do we have. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Yeah. I can say I have completely lost my faith in the church and other people because of things done to me in a house of worship. I am not even sure if I believe in the existence of God anymore at this point because I have been through so many tragic events in the past seven years and they just keep on coming. I am starting to feel like I have devoted my life to nothing. Sad, but true. If God does exist, I certainly never mattered to him.
