Church happens every day of the week, inside our homes. Sunday morning gatherings are a culmination and celebration of what we are doing all week.

Is there any accountability for what is happening to the church today? I went to a church and during communion you had to walk past the popcorn machine to get to the communion..... I don't think that is what Christ had in mind for the image of the church. However, as long as people are saved and God is glorified then I guess that is what matters most. I find it hard for myself to be apart of that type of church, although that is more likely to be seen in the area that I am living in. I feel as if it is a mix between Starbucks and church. Certain churches just keep popping up these theme filled sermon churches with light shows and fog machines on every corner. It takes the perspective off of Christ and more on the show that is going on. Some people don't go to church because it isn't poppy enough for them. There are others who don't go because the message of the gospel is not being preached. Lastly, there are some who go because they feel like the pastor is not portraying the image of Christ. Although you can have you degree from seminary, your ability to become more like Christ should also reflect in your teaching, if you are in a position of teaching. I don't think Christ would have placed a popcorn machine in the middle of the church building.....I just don't know where the accountability is. However, I love the church for who it is, not what I want it to be and all I can do is pray that sincere followers of Christ are developed in spite of the commercial/ watered down gospel at some places.

I don't like going to church for the simple reason that we are living in the last days and the evidence of that is all around us, but alot of churches in my area refusing to see or accept that. A lot of people are walking around (pastors included because they are teaching it) saying things about how if we make the world a better place then we will ring in the millenial reign of Christs without having Him needing to rapture the Church. I can't stand to listen to that kind of mess. So I have refused going to church...and I will continue to find a church that is current in the Teaching of the Bible instead of the mumbo jumbo teaching of bringing on World Peace without Christ needing to rapture His church. I refuse to listen to it...

I want to go to church, but to many churches are more like broadway shows than church. There is two much interest in politics. Church has changed and I'm having trouble finding one that is more like I'm used too.

One of my favorite passages in the NT is the model of how to "do" church, Acts 2:42-47 where it not only gives a prescription for how to gather as Christians, but what will be the spiritual result. What an encouragement.

Those who know Jesus love His Church and become the part of a local church.

(Heb 10:25) Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord's coming is getting.

If we are “Christians” then that means we follow after our Lord Jesus Christ and abide in Him and learn about Him and our Father through His word (the bible). God’s church is/are His people or His called out one’s that is not a simplification. Perhaps the real question that this video may be asking is “How should we respond to people who say I’m a Christian but I don’t like to partake in fellowship?” Let us respond as the bible teaches and say that God tells us to not forsake fellowship. And the real answer may be one of two most likely answers, either you are not fellowshipping with true Christians or you are not dying to self.

These are really good thoughts. People who often reject the church don't even know what it is.

"Be yes doers of the Word and not hearers only DECEIVING your own selves." another translation says being self deluded. "Forsaking not the assembling of yourselves together and the more so as yes see the day approaching" Most of those kind of "christians" don't want to tithe, give or do much of the rest of the Woed either they want to do it their way and go to heaven when they die. Good luck with that is all I can tell them!

Amen. I think laziness, irresponsibility and selfism are the biggest problems besides immorality in our culture, and those often drag "Christians" into their currents. Non-church goers don't do anything good or meaningful in Sunday mornings anyway even if they are awake.
