Church Hopping Biblical

Happy New Year to all through 2012. I'm a Christian and I read the bible everyday but for six months I have been church-hopping. I attend one regularly on Sunday and the other on Wednesday. I worry that I have no integrity and God is not pleased with my actions. What can I do to fix things?

Our apostle Paul who we should and can follow, doesn't mention a "home church"

1 Tim. 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
1 Cor. 4:16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
1 Cor. 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

Judith,
God loves you so much he gave His only Son for you. Even if you were the only person on the Earth he still would have done that. Sit quietly with Him,He will guide you.
Once you commit yourself to a Church you will have an inner Peace that only God can give.
Remember God Loves you. Blessing's in Jesus Name.

The reason which you do this is because you do not yet know the truth

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

the church you attend says what you believe. I am a baptist because I believe the doctrine that is taught by my church. I see many churches that do not have their denomination telling who they are and what they believe. So when you see a church that isn't affiliated with a donomination makes one wonder what they do believe. To answer the question above, when you find the right one, you will know it. Keep looking until you find where God wants you.

Forget going to denominational churches.

Join a home church where the people are more intimate with each other and are accountable to each other. Something "christians" within a denomination can't seem to do. Joining a home church that meets daily helps your spiritual growth a whole lot better than attending a service once a week for the weekly pep talks. Especially during these end times when it's very, very difficult to stay on the right path towards the Kingdom of God. Remember: where two or more are gathered there will Jesus be (and it means anywhere).

Judith: We each have our own individual path that God works through if we let Him and trust Him.
I have been church hopping for many years and I have grown more outside of churches than within them.

Also Christan made a good point on 1/2/12:
"attending "church" does not save a soul. For many church claiming to be "Christian", teach a "false christ" and doctrines of the devil."

Always put your trust in God alone and not in man's churches or pastors/priests.

I believe you should talk to God in prayer on this matter. HE can choose for you a Church wherein HE wills that you should serve HIM for a period. Hopping in my opinion is not the best way of fellow-shipping, even though churches do have interactions with each other: there is the need to be identified with one at a time.

Find a church and stay there.

You know the answer: Stay at one church!
---Cluny on 1/3/12


first, you have to rid yourself of people's guilt trips and find one that truly serves the poor and homeless.

I see nothing wrong with what you are doing Judith, there is something about where you are currently on Sundays makes you desire an alternative group or service style and there is nothing wrong with investigating options. I hope you will find a church that will meet your expectations just remember at some churches have Wednesday programs that are significantly from their Sunday morning services and you should likely attend both for a while prior to making a long term choice.
---Blogger9211 on 1/2/12


You said you go to the same Sunday church "regularly"? I would say that you are not "church-hopping", then, if you are faithful to the same church on Sunday. And you are regular with the Wednesday group? This is not hopping. If they are both good for you, good. But pray in case there is anything God wants, not necessarily about if you stay with either group, but anything else for attention (c:

Judith, attending "church" does not save a soul. For many church claiming to be "Christian", teach a "false christ" and doctrines of the devil.

Jesus declared, "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 7:21

Christ in this verse is referring to "false christians" who claim to know Him but only to be told, "And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matthew 7:23

The question you must ask yourself is, "have you done the will of the Father"?
