…to be a Christian. Of course not. Christianity is defined by our faith in Jesus and is not determined by our attendance patterns, the size or frequency of our financial donations, or our ability to articulate specific theology or doctrines.
- I don’t know any fishermen who don’t go fishing
- My golf obsessed friends take every chance to play a round
- Everyone I know enjoys spending time with people who like what they like
If you find yourself trying to justify not going to church, examine your motives. Why would you avoid spending time with others who share your faith? They need your help with their spiritual journey…(and you need theirs).
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
