RE:Why we go to church?
- Dear All,
This is being analyzed by many scholars,in the forum.
While that is going on I would like to quote some instances
fom old testament First when Solomon wanted to build the temple
for God, God was amused? (2Chronicles2:6 Soloman muses about it)
The power of the entire universe, the creator all has to come down
to this small Temple built by man? How ever God came down and blessed
the place as he loved His faithful.
Solomon in his first payer ask God to hear the prayers of the people
who Come and pray. (2 chronicle 2 and 1 King 8). To undo their grivenses.
In fact he went the extent Of asking God, if one can not come since he is
away but atleast he pays turning the temple (church) and pray,he should
be heard. (Our concept of looking towards Jerusalem came from that.)
What happens when people pray in sincerity?
When all together with musical instruments Prayed in the temple, God came
down there. (2Chronicles5: 11-14,2 Chronicles 7:1-2)
This is the background for our going to church, to be with God when we
are on earth.
