Hot Topic: Is The Church Building Needed Today???
I tell you what the below comment has dominated my Facebook time line in the last couple of days. I highly encourage church attendance in the right church with the right structure in place and the right leadership. We all know that in the Old Testament, when God commanded the Tabernacle to be built, it was a place for God to dwell with the people. The people did not meet inside the Tabernacle. Only the priests entered the Tabernacle. The people met together and worshiped God outside under the open sky. They never entered the Tabernacle or later the Temple:
"Hi - The Lord removed me from church building attendance. Increasingly, He's calling more of His people out of church buildings; however, when I was a baby Christian, I sat "under" preachers and teachers for years in church building settings . . . Do you believe that BABY Christians should attend church buildings to get foundational and other truths from preachers and teachers?"So the question is, if God does not dwell in a building, but dwells in our hearts. Then why do we have to meet in a special building or enter a special building to worship God? Is a church building needed for us to meet or worship God? Is it needed for the center of the life of the believer?
