Any church is good right?

If you are seeking spiritual guidance and want to start a good path to your life it would seem that you have a smorgasbord of selections available.  But just choosing the one down the street closest or the biggest attendance would not be wise.  Not if you are seeking one that will bring about the changes in your life that is best.  Truth is only found in God's way.  There is only one God.  Made up of Jesus Christ and the Father who created all that is. Who created humans and created them for a great purpose.

Just as you would not choose just any one to build your house- you should not choose where you learn about God just anywhere either.  It must be a place where the bible is the foundation, where ministers live as examples like Christ Love.  If they are not reflections of the life of Jesus Christ they are false ministers and are like this passage:

14 “But I have a few complaints against you. You tolerate some among you whose teaching is like that of Balaam, who showed Balak how to trip up the people of Israel. He taught them to sin by eating food offered to idols and by committing sexual sin. 15 In a similar way, you have some Nicolaitans among you who follow the same teaching. 16 Repent of your sin, or I will come to you suddenly and fight against them with the sword of my mouth. rev 2:14-15

The word Nicolaitans in greek means a "follower of Nicolas". or victor of the people.
These people were rebelling against God's laws and committing sexual sins in orgies, idol worship etc.  Following a doctrine against all the original church of Christ had taught! See this link to a great in depth article by William F. Dankenbring

It is very important we understand that there are many false and misleading churches and spiritual leaders.  These people are teaching the ways of man and ultimately doing Satan's business not God's.  
Jesus himself said that many would come talking like they knew Jesus  but are liars .
  
Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world?[a]
Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, Matt:24They will deceive many.

This is a terrible thing in the eyes of God. To deceive His children that are seeking Him in truth.  False teachers shall reap a horrible consequence to leading people astray!

But part of the problem is many do not want to know truth and are happy to go to where they are not challenged to change or follow God's way but love to have truth watered down and live they way human nature wants too.  That any sexual life is ok, that any lie or deceit is just fine if you just say you are sorry with no change required to overcome our own nature of self.  To overcome anger, selfishness, sins against others and sins against our own bodies. To live in denial that if you go to any church you will be saved or that it makes you Holy and Righteous is to live a lie. 

Choose carefully by studying the word of God with much prayer for God to put you in the right church that teaches you Gods word according the word of God based on His truths.  No man on the earth is God.  No man is without sin.  But there are places that are teaching Gods ways and you will know them by their fruits.  For the doctrines will prove who is actually followers of Christ and who are false.  Sometimes this takes time.  Don't be afraid to leave a church that you find is living in sin and condoning sins.

May God bless your prayers for the right place to learn and grow. May you never give up or settle for less than God's best in your walk in the days ahead!
