I’ve looked at many studies, lessons, teachings, and ministries over the past months, part of my ongoing quest to define and align my walk as a believer and to discover the closest possible definition of the specific path that our Lord has for me and for my family. The resources available to us today are overwhelming in their abundance and it is a great joy to be able to listen to so many great teachers of the faith! Care and caution must be exercised and I’ve managed to trip myself up a few times along the way (the enemy lays many, many snares and pitfalls!) but have discovered and re-discovered a number of delightful paths, amazing insights, clearly delivered exhortations and simple Christian truths.
Today I was looking at Hank Hanegraaff’s “The Bible Answer Book for Students” and came across two fairly clear and concise articles defining reasons for attending church. I want to share them with you for your enjoyment and consideration.
