Reasons to Stay Out of Church

In our Sunday school class, we were talking about the reason that many people stay out of church. It was discussed that some people stay out of church because they want to clean up their life first before they decide to follow Christ. However, you can't clean up your life on your own. Another reason I think people stay out of church is because they feel judged by church members. Whether perceived judgement or real, they feel as though the people in the church are "holier than thou." The reality is that the church is not a country club for saints, but a hospital for sinners. Even if the people at church appear to have it all together, whether again by perception or by carefully crafted masks, they are not perfect people.
