Christians Must Go to Church!

April 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 123


In the first part of this discussion (Christian? - go to Church) we contended that ignorance pervades in the society and people love to exploit that ignorance of the word of God to manipulate the generality of the public to follow their personal agenda by introducing half-truths and false statements that are supposed to derive validity from the scriptures.

Yet, Christians gullibly accept that position. We also pointed out that many who call themselves Christians do not actually got to Church and therefore, they have difficulty in discovering that either these statements are incomplete or twisted. This is a grand agenda that Satan has successfully used over the years to distract people from the true worship of God, and populates his own kingdom.

It will be beautiful to recollect the following scripture for its relevance because if we do not go to church, how are going to hear the true word of God? And how are going to interpret that word without being manipulated by others who have ulterior motives?

not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching (Heb. 10:25).

For our non-church going Christians, the issue then becomes how they will appreciate God's provisions if they are not exposed to the claims. Sure, it is in the Bible, and every Christian has a Bible at home, so goes a defense. Really! Yet, this may be true, after all we all have online access to free Bibles these days. However, if someone lacks the concern to even go to church, how do you trust him to have the time to study the Bible to such depths in his home? In other words, nominal Christians lose both ways.

For instance, verses 9-10 of Psalm 91 are a beautiful eye-opener. Clearly, they show that there is nothing within the purview of mankind that God has not made provision for:

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling (Psalm 91:9-10).

Yet, these provisions carry conditionalities. Disobedience is a satanic trick that encourages us to evade the guidance of God by refusing to learn of His true intentions from church ministers. And it is suggestive that we do not dwell in Him. Therefore, it is safe to conclude that any Christian who does not go to church is cheating himself.


If for any reason one cannot make it to church on Sunday, there are always mid-week activities in most churches. Regularly attending one or two of them helps build one's faith structures; but more importantly, gives one the grounds to demand of His promises as of right from one who has a son-ship status with Him. Every Christian truly needs to fortify himself with the true word of God, irrespective of age or other circumstances. Our ticket to heaven needs reassurance, while we reinforce our rights to the best that this world has to offer.
