Picking churches used to be so much easier. Back in the day you'd look for a church that preached christ-centered and cross-focused expository Bible sermons where you connected with the people. You would look for a church that taught the timeless truths of the Christian faith in a way that transcended the culture.
But, now that so many of the church's have given up trying to preach Expository Sermons and are instead trying to be relevant to non-Christians and the world, picking a church has become VERY complicated.
First you have to find a church that has a music style that you can connect with. Once you've got that list down, you have to find one the preaches on topics that are relevant for you in your situation in life. If you're single you don't want to go to a church that preaches a lot about marriage tips. If you wealthy you don't want to go to a church that preaches about the virtues of being poor in spirit. If your a college student then churches that preach about financial success and getting ahead at work would probably bore you to tears. Or as the cartoon below illustrates if a church is preaching about movies that don't fit your favorite genre then you'll probably find a different church to go to.
