If you don't go to church, does that mean you go to hell automatically?
I don't believe that's true at all! It doesn't make you a bad person, nor does it make you a satanist... There are plenty of ruthless people that go to church. There are so many hypocrites in the world it's not even funny! I think lots of the petifiles in this world use church as a ticket thinking that if they go every sunday it's going to get them into heaven. Haha they're sooo wrong
Its all about your relationship with god. God wants us to worship him in a public manner and show the world that we love him and that we arn't ashamed of him-- but if there is no possible way that you can get there worship him in your own time. And I totally agree: "I'm a hardcore christian. I do my best to live my life for God and may try to convert you to do the same. haha. honestly though,I think the religion aspect of it is what gets in the way many times, for many people. It sould be about following and searving Christ. period.I put a lot of the blame on the catlolic church and other 'christians' who try to shove a bible down the throat of everyone they meet. resently, (as well as histoically) Christianity has become just a bunch of empty rituals and meaningless words, people, even other blievers, seem to have lost sight of what it means to be a CHRISTian. hopfully we can all get back on the right track sooner rather thatn later" --N.C. Shemwell
A lot of religious types believe that they are better than everyone else and that is WRONG! we are no better than anyone else. I choosse not to have a religion because thats not what its about its about loving GOD period and spreading the good news! Jesus came and died for us so everytime we did something wrong all we had to do is ask for forgiveness and TRY! I do go to a non-denominational church so I don't have the pressure of certain rules that are pointless. Try to go to church it can be fun!!! but your not condemed necessarily if you dont :)
It's not a matter of being a good or bad person, how kind you are, how much you give or volunteer for charities, or your church attendance - my understanding, of upmost importance is a persons decision in regards to Jesus Christ - God being pure cannot even look upon sin - man, even in his very best state is a sinner - on judgement day, either: your sins are covered by the blood-shed sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross (salvation and only salvation - being a nice person isn't good enough - even at our very best, we are but filthy rags), and remembered no more or they are not (your sins are not covered) - where God's great love comes into play is, He provided a WAY (Jesus) for us not to perish and live in Heaven with Him (He certainly didn't have to do this but did because He loved us so) - if you read carefully John 3:16, this is exactly what it says - each person will either accept or reject, you must decide for yourself and yes, it's so important, it has eternal consequences - He Loves you and wants you to accept God's free gift to man - Jesus...Hope this helps you !!
No!! I don't think not attending church will make you go to Hell as long as you believe in the lord.
Its really your choice if you want to attend church. Attending church makes me feel better personally and, it keeps Satan away from me. If you don't attend church, well that's your choice. If you just continue to read your scriptures and believe the Sabbath, then you'll be alright. But, its only right if you do attend church to hear the word of god.
I agree that allot of ruthless people attend church just to make themselves feel better or just go for the heck of it. Some people go to church for the wrong reasons and that's not right. So, you do what's in your heart and good luck and god bless.
You don't know how much me and my friend have pondered that...mostly because of the music we listen to...Cradle of Filth...and we thought it would be stupid if they wouldn't let us into heaven by the music we listen to!? We're good people! So it all depends on the good deeds you do in life, that's what I think anyways.
Hope I helped! Have a good day! :)
Exactly! Kids at school are always on my back telling me this crap... Going to church every sunday doesn't mean you have a reserved seat for you in heaven!
you don't have to go to church it wont get you to heaven you have to live by gods word to get into heaven not go listen to it
We just covered this subject. . . . See the link.
yah its just a way to know how to live its not a requirement to get into heaven
jimahl, its not imaginary...such ignorance people has on these kind of subjects
Nobody is going to hell and I think earth and life is hell anyway
You don't go to hell, regardless of church attendance.
Boy, you told me...
I guess I am wrong...
Since hell is imaginary, no, you won't.
