Well Said!Some view"church goers"as claiming to be blameless.
I was drawn to the Church and thus Jesus because I realized I was lost in the wilderness surrounded by wolves and it was getting dark. I found a light on the hill and it lead me out of the darkness.
Does the darkness ever try to lure me back? Absolutely. Does it succeed? Sometimes. Does hanging out with people who love me and want to see me do well make it easier? Probably. Is it a life long journey? You bet.
A Church is a body of believers. A Chuch is a group of people who understand that they fall short and they need help. A Church is a group of people who are there to help others who are lost find Jesus.
Many times people place "Church goers" on a unrealistic plain. Then when the person makes a mistake they are quick to point out the faults of the"high and mighty".
Every Christian that I know would be quick to tell you that they are far from perfect. They will tell you that it is a struggle everyday. Most if they were honest would tell you that it helps to be around people who are working through the same issues.
If you can go it alone and dont need the encoragement that comes from attending a church service, that is great. I cannot. I still need help understanding all that God wants me to be.
For 30 years I tried it on my own. It was a rough ride. For the past 10 I have tried it Gods way. His way is much easier. Going to Church has changed my life.
