  • Only if there was food afterward...
  • No. My throat closes up and that "Damien" music starts playing when I drive past one;)
  • Yes I would. I did in fact and it changed my life dramatically.
  • Probably...but I would feel uncomfortable...especially if was outside my religion..;)
  • Yes but it would depend on the denomination or possibly if it was LDS, JW or SDA...
  • yeah i would go why not. i havent gone to church in a while but if my friend wanted to go i would be there to support him/her, if thats what they needed.
  • Of course, if it was outside of my denomination I might feel out of place, but I'm always up for learning what other people believe and why.
  • Yes, I would go and enjoy it no matter what religion it was, except for satanism, would not go there.
  • im usually the ones inviting the people to my church...they respond pretty good to it...if they were to invite me, i would go...if it was outside my religion, it would be uncomfortable, but im open to knowing the other religions out there....now, if it was somewhere where they were sorshipping satan, NO!lol...i would go to the others, if my parents would let me...
  • I can't help but to think of most religions as cults... I would most likely be compelled to convince my friend that there are better things to do with his/her time. I would then proceed to suggest a long hard drive to Mexico instead... lol
  • No. I'd tell him to get stuffed.
  • Sure, I have comfort in God's word through Jesus Christ, and I feel that sometimes God puts people in our path to help them find the truth. Part of sharing Jesus comfortably with other faiths/philosophies is recognizing where the other person is coming from to establish a reference point for further discussion. I am open to all invitations. But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 1 Peter 3:15-16
  • Actually no, because I am a strong believer in my own church I attend. I do invite people to mine.
  • Not again! The last time there were so many people and the deacon wouldn't let me out! I have severe panic attacks and social phobias. The guy stood in front of the door and forced me to stay. I completely flipped out. Never again will I attend that place. I have a friend who continually asks... insists if you will. He has this crazy notion that if he doesn't turn me it is "blood on his hands". What would give someone such a thought? (He goes to the aforementioned church) Just so anyone who knows me knows: I was a Christian until I was about 16. At age 13 I had begun to study a wider field. I became Pagan of my own choice and I attended this church afterward(age 18, with a friend) . This one experienece wasn't what made me think that there was something better. It may have confirmed for me that I had made the right choice for myself. No, this isn't what turned me, it wasn't one bad experience. I am not against Christians, but I am not one either. Just so no one goes off on a tangent.
  • I would, yeah. I've had a habit for some time of asking some pretty rugged questions and involving myself in quite lively debates though - so I may only get invited once!
  • Ordinarily, I'd say yes, to an offer to attend a large, mainstream, Christian, Church. I've seen enough of the small, fringe, independent churches to know that I'd never fit in. The exception would be to holy roller type churches with odd doctrines. That'd be a "NO" for sure.
  • definitely. i like learning about religions, even though i don't believe any of them.
  • I've gone to two Christian services (I am Roman Catholic) because a friend asked me to. I wouldn't feel right going more often then once or twice though.
  • Why not.I would go.
  • No, I wouldnt be friends with anyone that goes to church either.. at least not GOOD friends. sociable maybe.
  • No, I would just tell them I will meet them somewhere after, or to come on over after church
  • On the understanding that I will not be converted, I would gladly attend if they wished. I have done it before now. I enjoy the architecture and the peacefullness of the places, even of I do not believe what is being preached. Ironically, in my 16 years of atheism, I have attended church more times than my mother ever has. However, I have also attended Gurdwaras, Mosques and Synagogues. I like to see as much as possible.
  • Yes i would especially that this place make you feel so in peace
  • I think that depends upon the circumstances involved. Obviously, I would go and respectfully participate to the best of my ability in a wedding or funeral. Equally obviously, if that person were attempting to convert me, I would not go. I would also likely sever (or greatly scale back) the level of the friendship, due to the disrespect shown towards my own beliefs and my right to them. If it were to see him/her in a church production (Choir, etc), then I would go. If it were to help support him/her during a trying time and Christianity was his/her faith, I would definitely go. If it were to learn and understand better about his/her beliefs, then I would go. If it were to provide someone company, I would probably not go. I feel no need to sit through church without a compelling reason to do so.
  • ya of course i would im sort of a religious person so it would be funn to go to my friends church.
  • maybe depends on what church. everything is a learning experience.
  • To a Christan Church? No, I can't hold my tounge that long... to any other religous services that I like a bit more? Sure, I'd probably go.
  • Absolutely, everyone needs a little uplifting.
  • Yes I would go, as long as it was based on the Holy bible.
  • Yep, and I would. I love going to other church services and learning about other religions... it has always been one of my passions. Gotta love the hardcore Catholic with a passion for World Religions!
  • No I am under the impression that Baptists have slightly different beliefs than Roman Catholics or Anglo Saxon Protestants.
  • Not really cause i don't believe in god but if it was like a special thing and my friend told me that it would mean so much and he or she wants me there of course i would. Thats whats friends are for right to support each other.
  • No i'm afraid not. I'd have to tell him or her that i'm sorry but i couldn't. It's against my beliefs and I wouldn't feel comfortable.
  • probably. but i would have to know a little about the church first.
  • No because I don't believe in any of it all and would find it incredibly dull.
  • I have attended a few services with members of my wife's family who have invited us. I don't mind it much, but as a Catholic I find some protestant churches very different and I feel a bit out of place when things get lively at some services (Baptist). I am more comfortable in the catholic church for sure.
  • No because I will be there already!
  • Been there done that. It's pretty neat seing how different people pray/worship. I'm Catholic and have attended several Protestant services, a couple of different Jewish things (holiday celebrations) and one Hindu service. I guess my favorite was going to a service with my atheist friend. We went to a bar and he bitched and moaned about life for an hour.
  • Girlfriend, yes. Friend, no. I hate church. I always feel so uncomfortable and unwelcome, like I know I'm not supposed to be there.
  • If I wanted to go then yea, if I didn't then I'd politely decline the invitation.
  • Well the only person that might do that would be jewish ...;)... And it goes against my belief because i am roman catholic soo no. but if one of my roman catholic friends asked then yes i would go with them!
  • mostly i use 2 goo when im busy wioth some work i wnt goo
  • I think it would depend on how good of friends we were and what religion it was.
  • As long as I did'nt sit next to someone with irritable bowel syndrome........because I would'nt want to sit in his pew.
  • Depends on the religion.. I wouldn't if it was a Christian church (other than Catholic)... but any non-Christian church it would depend on which one.
  • Depends why their inviting me, if their inviting me because they want to "change" me "save" me, then they are not my friend. Actually I can't think of any other reason why they were inviting me, unless they were having a fair and there was a stall selling some excellent second hand clothing and shoes, then they know me very well and I'm there!! :)
  • As long as there's a pub next door.
  • yea i already go to church with my family, and extended family! so it would just be the same ol thing but a new setup!
  • I would go.
  • If he or she is really a friend, he or she knows that I should not be invited to church. =)
  • Probably not. If it were for some sort of special occasion and they wanted me there for support, I'd consider it.
  • no i would feel as if i was being disrespectful as i do not believe and i would be uncomfortable
  • As a matter of fact...my sister invited me to go to church this Sunday and yes I am going.
  • NEVER...WOULD YOU KNOWINGLY STEP INTO A SNAKE PIT?
  • I would, mostly out of friendship. It's an important side to HIM so I might as well get to know it. It's also just social in general. I'm not religous at all, but I'm not against it either.
  • Yes, I would and have with a few friends even though we have different beliefs. They weren't trying to convert me or anything, it was totally casual.
  • If it meant a lot to my friend, sure. why not?
  • no i would not go. i dont believe in Religion but I also have respect for someone else’s beliefs so I would find it rude for me to go and then roll my eyes…unless it was a Synagogue cause Jews are pretty tight.
  • Of course. I always enjoy going to others' churches or other houses of worship. I also know what it is to be really hurt when a friend/significant other refuses to even darken the door of a church to go to say, my graduation party, or to hear me sing or play piano. I would never say no.
  • Yes definately.
  • i love church so much i try to go always so ...... OF COURSE!
  • why not.
  • it depends, is it a cult i do not do that.
  • No,I'd ask them to send a postcard.
  • I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My best friend when I was a child was a member of another church. I told her that if she went to my church, I'd go to hers. She came to mine, joined and I never went to hers, because she became a member of mine. Nikki, I love you!
  • Depends on the church. I'll never again set foot in a baptist church.
  • If it meant something to them and they really wanted me to go...Of course :)
  • My friends wouldn't but no, I would not go.
  • Sure why not? I like to sing church songs too.
  • Sure. But, they would have to understand, I shouldn't be pushed into any type of "Conversion"
  • Nah. Church isn't for me anymore and for some reason I get ill even thinking about it.
  • NO....NO NEED because i always go to church
  • No. I only attend Mosques.
  • sure, the church wont burn and neither will i ;) lol! even if there are those that think those will happen.
  • sure and I would hope they would try mine to cuZ mine is way cool
  • It depends. I really like my church. I have been invited to other churches and it does not feel right. Sometimes it is because I have a problem with new place and sometimes it's just because it doesn't feel right to me. But, If I needed to switch churches or if it were really important to that person that person I think I would make an honest effort. Even if I am not sure about it, you should make small sacrifices for your friends and family. If you don't like it, it is only one sunday, suck it up!
  • I don't have a friend.
  • It would depend on the church. There are many churches that are actually cults therefore I would not attend.
  • i might since i like going to church
