Re: Why Go to Church?
When the preachers know NOTHING more about GOD than you do...


Have they met him?
Do they know ANYTHING more about him than you do?

YOU have a bible just like them.....

Does GOD like them better and relay messages to them?
NOPE.

They are imperfect people same as you.

The pope himself knows NOTHING more about GOD than you do right now.

Why go listen to someone TELL you what to believe?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14770674


Good words.

If you look at the original words for "church", back in the Greek and Hebrew texts, they don't refer to a building or a quick assembly of people for a few hours on Sunday mornings. It refers to the whole of people that believe in Christ. It's the group of people (some call it the "Body of Christ), NOT the building. So it seems to me that people miss the point. Sometimes I wonder if we are supposed to have a structured meeting on Sunday, and call it "church". It seems like church should be a meeting of equal people striving for the same goals, not a congregation looking up to a superior man (who is, like you said, imperfect).... Idk, that's my $0.02.

Re: Why Go to Church?
BTW, for those saying the fellowship - you are confusing fellowship with socialising! You probably have less in common with those at your church than you think.

True fellowship does not require face to face contact or even knowing personally those you have fellowship with because it's about being one in spirit.
 Quoting: Ozicell


EXCELLENT point.

WE are having church RIGHT now.
When I discuss GOD RIGHT here...it is MUCH more enlightening that any church I have EVER attended. and I have attended MANY.


All I am saying is that NO MAN knows ANY more about GOD than you do right now.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14770674


well if you read the Bible though, why did God send disciples out to teach the people? Why did he send prophets before and since? They were merely men. So, in a way you are contradicting your own point. We wouldn't even know about Jesus if it weren't for other humans.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17821447


because back then he had direct contact with us through his son Jesus.
In the garden of eden he walked around with adam and eve.
It was a different time.
WE do not have that luxury.
Now all we have is stupid humans yelling at us telling us what to believe.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14770674



If you are a christian, you set a bad example for it. Didnt the Holy spirit come among the disciples after Jesus arose in heaven, and they all spoke to the masses, each heard it in their own tongue. The disciples sent leters to the Churches so the people could hear what they needed to do. They didnt send them to each individual person. Going to church helps in the understanding and spreading of Gods word.

Re: Why Go to Church?
To really get to know god...

just read the bible....
Then sit still and meditate.
EASY.

The hard part is quieting the mind.
You do not need a pastor or preacher for this.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14770674


The Christ's teaching was all about removing the intermediary and developing a direct personal relationship with the Father, hence He taught the disciples to pray directly to the Father and not through Him or anyone else.
 Quoting: Ozicell


Yes...just you and him.
Moses was called a friend of god....
friends talk to one another....
they dont listen to other people relay messages.
to become a friend of God...
simply TALK to him.
Then shut up and listen.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14770674


Just a correction: Abraham is called friend of God, not Moses.

But I agree that one doesn't need to be attending church service every Sunday to have a relationship with God, that can be a common misconception. But surrounding yourself with secular, unbelieving people constantly will affect your behavior eventually.
The false gospel: If you don't continually perform, you're out.

The true Gospel: Believe.

Satan controls most churches through occultists and satanists who have infiltrated them from the top down. If you don't know this, you are deceived. CHRISTIANS themselves are the "church", but most "christians" don't have faith in God or Christ, they want to have men tickle their ears every sunday.


Your body is the temple. Where two or more are gathered in Christ's name, there he is. Men being PAID TO PREACH, will never preach REPENTANCE OF SINS, because SATAN CONTROLS THEM AND WANTS YOU IN HELL

Christs kingdom is another world.

The bible speaks of the marriage of the bride and groom...meaning a permanent joing of the two...gods kingdom and mans.

NOT a particular church group.

1 John 2:27

But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
