Can You Be a Christian and Not Go To Church?

I have been saying this forever. My blog partner here says it very well. 🙂

rethink

People are leaving the church, millennials are leaving the church. That’s a reality we need to face. Many in my generation have left the church for a variety of reasons. Some good, some bad. Regardless the religious landscape is changing in America.

There are many that have left the church and the Christianity. I’ve written on this before and probably will again (6 Reasons Why Millennials Aren’t Attracted to the Church), but that’s not what I want to focus on in this article. What I want to focus on is those that have left the church but NOT left Christianity. Because I think there is something important we need to grasp.

I know what some of you are thinking. A Christian should never leave the church. But I want to push back on that notion. Before you call me a heretic…

Quick Entry


Good morning friends and welcome to all the new followers and those that have been with me from the start. Just a quick message this morning to keep in mind what our friend Toby Mac says here; we don’t always have to participate in an argument. Sometimes it takes more strength to just walk away….

Love you my friends and if you are enjoying my writing so far, share my blog with others! Thanks again friends!

Ever Wonder Why?


Good morning everyone!If you are reading this then you made it through Monday, congrats! See, Monday’s aren’t that bad are they? (Pointing myself to corner in shame…) Seriously though, we made it and Friday is just a couple of days away. Actually there really is no difference between the days, we just like to give an excuse why we hate going to work so much lol. Anyways, here we go.

One of the main reasons I started this blog was to, in my view, lift the veil of deception out there that the 21st Century Church and others have brought to the table. Deception that has turned our following of Christ into a man-made religion that the Pharisees of old would be very proud of. One of these such deceptions is going on as we speak; more specifically the events that took place this past weekend. I don’t know all of the details because quite honestly I keep a far distance from the news outlets since they clearly have their own agenda. I know enough, however, to speak intelligently about it and to give you this fresh perspective….

See everyone wants this to be about race, President Trump, white supremacist groups, nazis, etc. Or we want this to be about the “left” and how they take distort everything to counter. Well, it really isn’t folks; it may be under the guise of these descriptions but it is something much simplier and more evil than you think. Good vs. Evil. That is it, that is all, don’t forget to tip your waitress, have a great night. You might be like “what?”, it can’t be that simple! (It really is….) You can package it however you like but ALL of this comes down to Good vs. Evil, God vs. Satan, Jesus vs. Lucifer, call it what you will but its good vs evil. 

See we have pushed God and His Son out of our lives, our government, our schools, and our homes. WHAT THE HECK DID YOU EXPECT WOULD HAPPEN? Did you think that all would be rosy because you put this person or that person in the White House? Did your 8 years of democratic rule make things better? Has electing Trump made it all better? No and it hasn’t because we as a HUMAN race, are ignoring the true problem. We have asked God to get lost and folks situations like this past weekend will happen as a result. The old saying is true; you never know what you had until its gone…..

Lucifer has tricked you my friends; he has tricked you into thinking you don’t need God. That somehow we would all live more peacefully if we removed God from the equation. Well, I ask you, HAS IT?? You have been fooled and going to your buildings once a week and lifting your hands is not the answer, we need to TRULY repent! (Turn away). We need to turn from these lifestyles and paths in our lives that only evil can provide and turn to the One True God that can restore and make all things new. Want racism to go away? Put God first. It’s not a skin thing, its a SOUL thing. End of story folks; as always the choice is up to you. Keep living in the Lie or take off the veil and ask God to take over, truly take over. Then and only then can Love really exist among us…

Peace and Love,

David

Good afternoon!


Good afternoon friends! I had some really good advice today on how to make my writing more visible to more readers and I will definitely do that but thought first I would offer this (hence the goofy picture)….

Don’t take life so seriously; it’s short, shorter than you even realize. Why spend it miserable and frustrated? Give your cares to God today and have some fun. Our Father has provided so many joys in our day if we will just seek them out.

Until tomorrow friends…..

Happy Sunday!-Be Still


Good morning everyone and welcome to Sunday! Hope you all had a great Saturday, I know I did. Got to spend some time with my soon to be Daughter early in the day then with my youngest son later watching a scare the poop out of you movie. (It is kind of our thing since no one else in the family likes them). Also had a relatively sick free day which was definitely needed; I almost feel human again. My hip what my hip is; learning to live with it I guess until the doctor can fix me haha. Now onto the meat……

I posted this quote from Ted Dekker because he has such a grasp on what has happened to us as believers. I mean, do we not always try to analyze things with our brains? God did give us our brains to use but He gave us something even more powerful to use; our hearts. He also tells us that our lives are not encapsulated in one moment but in a series of moments throughout our lives; in essence, our journey. A journey that is often filled with many “noises”. Everywhere we go we have something trying to distract us; our phones, our tablets, our PC’s, our TV’s, all filled with one purpose; to distract us and keep us moving like the pervebial gerbil on his wheel…….

However, before we can truly start on our journey that God has laid out for us every day, we must be still. Be still in our thoughts, in our actions, and in our hearts. We must be still so when God speaks to us we can actually hear what He is saying and not just assume that something is “what God put on my heart”. How do we know when we are so distracted? More often than not its really what WE want, not necessarily what God has for us. To know for sure we must be still so God can truly transform our hearts and our minds. Have a great Sunday everyone! Love to hear from you and welcome to the new people that started following this writer yesterday; he very much appreciates it 😉

Peace and Love,

David
