The importance of church | Lifestyles | – Times-Enterprise


Don't forget that camDown FREE is easy to use, easy to maintain and that's the truth.

Along with family, church has always been the most important institution in our society. The right church is the only place that affords actual truth. 

I say the right church because there are many churches that have succumbed to the evils of society. Avoid these. There are enough good churches still around that preach God’s Word. 

Sadly, 80% of our people did not attend any church regularly before COVID-19. It is a greater number now, as people were handed an excuse to stay away and got used to it. This is tragic for our society.

The most important thing about church attendance is hearing the truth proclaimed. Bible preaching is the only way to hear real truth today. You will hardly get the truth from television or newscasts. Neither do you get it from movies. 

Satan uses all sources of information to corrupt people through misinformation and lies. He is in fact the Father of Lies. 

Some of the most common lies he propagates are (1) God does not exist, (2) there are many ways to heaven, and (3) it does not matter what you believe or what religion you embrace.

By contrast, the truth is that God absolutely exists and it should be obvious to any intelligent person. The truth is that Jesus the Christ is the absolute only way to heaven. In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” This statement makes clear that it certainly matters what you believe or embrace if you want to go to heaven and avoid hell.

The reason most people now avoid church is that they do not accept the idea of God or belief in Christ as the Son of God, Who died that souls might live eternally in heaven instead of in torment. Satan laughs at how easily he has persuaded man to not only disbelieve in God, but to try to be his own god. It is unfortunate that most people prefer temporal pleasures on earth to eternal bliss of living in heaven, one day soon. 

Church exists primarily to proclaim the Word of God  that is so desperately needed by everyone still living. Church also exists to provide men the opportunity for fellowship with other believers. And church exists to provide a place for corporate worship of the living God, though we should certainly worship privately and often. We should, as far as possible, stay in prayer. 

God has mandated corporate worship (church) in Hebrews 10: 25, where He says, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves as the manner of some is.” From this verse we realize that it is actually sinful to not attend church if we are able to do so. Everyone worships something or someone. We worship God, money, or even ourselves. Smart people worship God. 

Our Declaration of Independence guarantees the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The problem is that all who pursue happiness without God never find it.
