Why Go To Church?


A church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.

“I have gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I am wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.”

This started a real controversy in the 'Letters to the Editor' column; much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

“I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!”

Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!

Thank God for our physical and our spiritual nourishment!

I sure would like to believe that! However, I cannot see how going to church on the wrong day... worshipping a generic God with no name... and learning man made traditions... rather than, Yahweh's clear word can honestly help you?

Yahweh said, "Come Out Of Babylon My People..." precisely whom was He speaking to? If you cannot tell me, then it is because your church is already dead.....

This was an awesome article to read. Just like food nurishes the body, so does the church for the soul. Thanks for reminding us of that fact!
