But what if...?

Suppose you stopped going to church. What would happen?

What would your family say?

How would your friends and co-workers react?

Would you get a call from your pastor?

What questions would you struggle with the most just before making the final decision?

Who would you be most worried about concerning their opinion of your action?

What sort of conditions would you attach to your decision?

What would you miss most at your church?

Would anybody truly miss you after about three months?

What would you do with the extra time?

Who would you most want to be with during this new-found extra time?

How would you explain to a stranger the reasons for your decision?

Why did you start going to church in the first place?

If you seriously spent any time answering these questions, then consider this word from the Lord Jesus Christ, "...whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple." You are carrying religious baggage to be repented of. It is not of faith. Therefore it is sin.

Stop going to church and start being the Church.
