If you want to skip one of these two things, skip church before you skip daily Bible reading. Daily Bible reading is more important for a Christian than going to church.
One of the things that the Bible says overcomes our spiritual enemy is our testimony. Too many church goers never share their testimony about how they met Jesus. Too few Christians listen to other believer’s testimony.
When Christians skip out on being aware of the continual presence of the living Jesus, going to church on Sunday can’t make up for what they lose out on.
When Christians aren’t open and honest, they are unable to worship “in spirit and in truth,” no matter how often they go to church.
Christians who want to skip opening their heart and praying out loud with other believers can’t make up for that by being a Sunday morning spectator.
To refuse to confess your sins to God and turn away from them is far worse than not going to church.
If you’re unwilling to be kind and to respect all people as fellow humans, your church attendance can give Christianity a bad name.
Going to church can cause Christians to have a setback in spiritual growth.
