A church is a place of worship and
Also a collection of people worshipping.
Worship in this context means deep reverence accorded to God …note…in Spirit and in truth!
It is a place where you can commune with God. there is this feel of warmth, brotherly and sisterly affection in a fellowship ( all things been equal). Back in the Old Testament their tabernacle was a place where they made sacrifice to atone for their sins so as to ensure a right relationship with God, though we can do that wherever we are even within the confines of our home.
Do you go to church? But before you respond, let me ask for what purpose? You might go to church for the same reason in which someone goes to disco hall. Yours might be just to show off your sexy, seductive wears; the most expensive clothing in your wardrobe or to model out the attire in vogue.
We find out that the church is becoming worldly and the world becoming ‘churchy’. For Christ’s sake, are birthdays, dinner party, wedding, funeral ceremony not sufficient for your show offs? If God has blessed you indeed then let’s know it by the help you render to others. There are very few philanthropists that are Christians why can’t wealthy Christians be philanthropist?
Others might even go to church for another hullaballoo with the kingdom of Satan (drumming in hell, dance and jubilation in the church, cooking in hell: feasting, dining and wining in the church, sacrifice and chanting in the church, weeping and gnashing of teeth in hell…). Jesus sent out the exchangers from the temple…the sight was just to irritating and repelling!!!
Nobody is saying you should go to church shabby or smelly, all am saying is, let the purpose for which everyone left house for church be a very good purpose with the right motive.
If you realize the church (building or the name) is the problem, of course you can exit the congregation but if you (your heart) is the problem then you have to repent and make your heart habitable for God.
They that worship God must worship him in spirit and in truth. The next time you go to your church, ascertain yourself and the atmosphere in which you all are worshipping.
