I Never Meant to Imply that Christians Should'nt have a place to Assemble or for the lost.
But to say that we should ATTEND or GIVE money to a preacher, so he can live better than his Flock or a Beautiful BUILDING full of Statues & stained Glass Windows.
IS to say "Let's just keep walking like Sheep led to the Slaughter" BLIND & BENT OVER!
If, i was a Sheperd of the Children of God, I would be AS David, Protect & feed them, NOT the other way around!

Most of you have the mistaken definition of what a chruch is. It is NOT a building. It is NOT a non-profit organization. It is NOT a denomination. It IS Chrisitans, period. A member of the body of Christ. Jesus does NOT return to marry a church building, nor a non-profit organization, nor a denomination.

Today, church is something you go to rather than something we are called to be.The seven churches in Revelation are not denominations, nor non-profit-organizations, nor a building. They are the geographical area in which the members of Christ are located. We are told to go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Do we do that in a church building?

It's believed today that first you needed to know the Church, and then you would know what the true faith is. In reality, it's just the oposite.

How could we 'attend' church if Christians ARE the church?

How does the IRS define "church" and you'll find how most Christians define church.

Duane, I agree heartily that you can have good churches without any church buildings - the best - but I disagree with your criticism of Jews etc. as if the fact that going to a building makes them less godly. It is all a matter of what is in the heart. Jesus was a Jew and would have attended the Synagogue until he was ejected from it (later he was afraid to go because they would have arrested him, so he hid in the hills and mountains.) We are all spiritually descended from God's chosen people.

John 11.51 (Caiaphas) did not say this (that one Messiah must die for the people) on his own, but as high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation, and not only for that nation but also for the scattered children of God, to bring them together and make them one.

When I go, it is to praise God. >>>The term church is used to describe local groups of believers. [Acts 5:11] The church is not primarily a human scructure.>>>It is the church of Jesus Christ. [Matt. 16:18], or of the living God. The various Biblical description all emphasis This. The chuirch is to confront and uproot and bring about expulsion of unrepentant false teachers. [1 Tim. 1:19-20].The congregation is under the lordship of Christ.

Last Sunday in a Baptist church as a guest I heard several encouraging things. I heard altar call mention three times in the first 15 minutes. I heard the term witnessing and soul winning used several times in the message. It is my plan to return this Sunday.

A person goes to church because it is their desire to go. Like me, I have a deep desire to go to church and get fed from the word of God. If a person is able to go to church, they need to go. But a lot of the able do not go to church because they are lazy and don't want to make an effort to get ready. Like Sunday School, they are too lazy to get up out of bed.

MY Bible KJV say's That, We Believers are the Church, Spiritual Stones that make up the walls of it, Jesus The Foundation & Corner Stone of THAT CHURCH, "HIS BRIDE"...
Christians worshipped in caves & in homes, NOT in CHURCH'S, UNLESS you were a PAGAN or a JEW!
The House of God isn't MADE with the HANDS of MEN & The EARTH is his FOOTSTOOL.
Constitine & HIS Angel of Light have you all FOOLED!
THE TEMPLE of GOD, IS within YOU!

First, because it's commanded. Second, because I love to be in God's house. It's not an option with my husband and I. We can count on one hand how many church services we've missed in the 23 yrs we've been married. We can't wait till Sunday, every week. It has never gotten old to us. What do I get out of it? LIFE! I couldn't face the world without my regular encounters with God's presence and the words he speaks to me through my Pastor

To worship God,praise him ,be with fellowbelievers.

To learn about God and to fellowship with other christians. I get a blessing out of going to church. It is a privilage to be able to call upon God's name. I certianly don't go to be seen.
---Rebecca_D on 6/16/06


I go because I love Jesus and His body.
---Linda6563 on 6/15/06


I go because God's Word says not to neglect the fellowship. I go to worship God, to pray for those who come in with need. I go to be challenged by Pastor to grow in my faith and my walk with God. I go to church because I know without a doubt it's where He wants me to be.

I go to church to worship God and fellowship with His children. I also get fed and have opportunities to serve Him.
