On Sundays churches are full of people. It is amazing to see them. They attend both Orthodox and Charismatic. They attend churches of true men of God and magicians. I am more interested in couple of things.
Does going to church every Sunday make you a good or better Christian? Does going to church every Sunday mean your prayers are qualitative or quantitative? How many times have we as people not sought to project ourselves as pious whereas we perpetrate some of the most heinous crimes against humanity? Yes, we project ourselves as righteous yet are the very ones to offer a bribe before a job is done. How about this? On Monday morning we will receive bribes after “receiving” in church. How sad!
I believe the every Sunday church attendance has become something of a formality. I believe we go in to show off our new hairdo: our new shoes bought from eBay; our new sunglasses (we wear them throughout church service); our new clothes; even our new cologne/perfume. Why?
Another time I will visit the issue of picking particular areas to dwell on during preaching but then what is good for the goose is good for the gander!
Remember church is not to socialize but to join in unity and purity to offer prayers unto the Supreme Being, The Creator.
