A stone building is nice for a church, but I don’t necessarily need one at this point in my life.
My church is to be found within my soul, and usually, in the front of my mind. If I had children to educate on what religion means, I would seek the physical church, or certain group experiences.
The Church isn’t a building. The Church is believers. It’ll be great to get back together, but until our Marxist overlords deem us worthy to gather together, we’ll use modern technology to worship.
The church thrives under persecution. Our current church is Laodicean, apostate and fallen. There are very few still teaching the truth. Most have been compromised. I see this as a possible boon to real Christians everywhere. Get into the word and study it. Be berean. Now is the time to seek God. Eternity is a long time to be wrong.
The worst thing that ever happened to the body of Christ was when Constantine made Christianity an official relition.
Christianity, like our muscles, thrives on persecution and attack.
It’s HARD to be a devout Christian in a society where it’s the expected, the norm, accepted; no struggle, no power.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
The building is not a CHURCH, the congregation who are interwoven into each others lives is the church.
I think the headline is true, and that we will see many people coming back to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Faith.
What does it mean to feel “more religious”?
I expected Americans to get together in prayer asking God to forgive their sins and take away this punishment of the virus.
Maybe I am just an incorrigible romantic.
