Today is Sunday. So what do we all automatically think about? Church of course. What is church? What are we looking for when we go to church? Why do we go to church? What makes a good church?
What is a church and why do we go?
The church, is within us. This means that we are the church. So whenever several believers gather, this means that the church is gathering. We don't need to go to a building to go to church though the fellowship with other believers is a God given desire. He desired fellowship (the reason he created man) and because we are created in His image we desire it as well.
What are we looking for in a church?
I have been to many different churches in my short life. I have been to many different denominations and you know what I have seen in every one? Judgment. Everyone wants to find the church that teaches what they believe. Okay, sounds good. The thing is, don't we all BELIEVE in Jesus? I don't understand how people judge others on the fact that they are this denomination or that denomination. This person does this and that person does that and so therefore we can not let them come to our church. See what I'm getting at? This is in almost every church I have been to.
What makes a good church?
Well, I think people get down on others too fast or too hard. Yes they may not think the way you do, but do you totally not need to fellowship with them anymore? I don't think we need to find a whole bunch of people that are doing everything "right" (especially 'cause they probably aren't) but find one where the people are willing to accept everyone for being who they are. Everyone is different and God made them that way. He made them to THINK differently as well.
Thoughts anyone? I would be happy to hear them!
