Split-"What makes a Christian" Should Christians attend Church

61 posts in this topic

This is a split from the thread "What's Makes A Christian?: 2" - http://www.worthychristianforums.com/topic/159859-whats-makes-a-christian-2/page__pid__1898519#entry1898519

God bless,

--------------------------------------------------

Till I stopped going to church at all,

Now the thing that comes to mind can-

a carpenter never nail, hammer, saw, measure or quit these activities

and still be a carpenter?

So then if obedience to His Wod is showing God's love in us

Heb 10:25

25 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.

NKJV

what exactly are you revealing about yourself? Love, Steven

Gary I hate to connect the dots for you but they seem relatively close together! Church is the gathering together to

worship God in a community setting, an assembling to corporate worship??? As the gathering God will do in above in 2Thes.

or do you feel it unimportant for God to gather you when this time comes?

remembering always the judgment we use 'IS' the freedom He takes to judge us with!

Mt 7:2

2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you

use, it will be measured back to you.

NKJV

When ever the Body of Christ, His Church, gathers we are not to forsake that assembly if we

do we are being disobedient to the well being of our lives... God never would tells us to do something

that 'IS' not a benefit to His Possession! Love, Steven

I understand your point about that which people do today mostly on Sundays in various groups inside of buildings believing that they are worshiping God. I simply believe that has very little to do with what is being spoken of here in this verse. A very small part of the whole picture as the week has seven days and a multitude of time available for gathering ourselves together for the purpose of provoking one another unto love and good works, which is the purpose spoken of in the passage. Nothing about corporate worship at all. Nothing about a guy behind a pulpit preaching. But all of us provoking one another unto love and good works. So in this case, I believe you to be in error as to how you have approached Sage.

believing that they are worshiping God.

When Christ came to the synagogue to teach and preach there was

no one Holy but Him There- yet He worshiped His Father with them anyway! As this was His purposed custom!

Lk 4:16

16 So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue

on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.

NKJV

so the question remains if this was Christ's custom outside of my heart - now that he is within my heart how shall my

desire be to the custom?

So in this case, I believe you to be in error as to how you have approached Sage.

When God in His Word says to do something and one is not doing that what is said...

I am bound to point it out as a steward of His Word!

If you will note Sage's reply... God also says to us

Tit 3:8

8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly,

that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works.

These things are good and profitable to men.

NKJV

So is it good to do what God says or not? Have I not tried to profit sage by this?

So If God says profit and you say not who shall I listen to? Love, Steven

Church does not save you

God does.

A man does not need to attend church

to be a citizen of heaven. Church is but

a house of worship to the lord and a learning

place to young christians and an assembly to

all. And I just chose not to go for now.

Your argument is no longer with me but with His Word! Love, Steven

:read: Thank You Enoob57,

What uhh form of christian are you tho?

I dont know how to say it but I mean catholic,

southern baptist, baptist ???

I am at an Independent Baptist Church, was raised non-denominational Bible Church setting,

Pastor Marty Hughes is an excellent man of God and am thankful for His ministry to us! Basically

sanctification is the Christ likeness in obedience to His Word ... it is the mark we should press

toward as God views this as His Love returned back to Him. Love, Steven
