 alone christian....

I just saw this posted in Facebook...
"If you say you're a Christian, but you don't attend church, you're probably going to hell."

your thoughts, Saints?

 Re: alone christian....

I wasn't aware that church attendance was necessary for salvation.

Is it possible this person is misquoting Hebrews 10:24,25 "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is..."

Can I ask who posted it?

 Re: alone christian....

I think, in general now, that a true Christian would usually desire to go to church to fellowship and worship with other believers.

The quote is intended to prick the conscious of those who claim to be Christian but exhibit no fruit in their lives.

True but even the truest and most devout heroes of the faith went to church(or pastored a church).

In our society true Christians generally gather together, whether in a large building or someone’s home.

Again I am speaking in generalities and I am not saying you can’t be a Christian if you don’t attend church or gather with other believers.

The trouble with quoting a propositional claim like this taken from Facebook is that it lacks context. It seems like an angry self-righteous poster who has a bone to pick.

The internet can be a cesspool of "clickbait" titles and topics. It's like people are constantly throwing out "sticks", to see who will fetch them, tug against them, or at least click "like". We do well to ignore most of these "sticks" tossed our way - especially the ones that defile our peace, rob our joy, and deplete our mental energy.

The quote is intended to prick the conscious of those who claim to be Christian but exhibit no fruit in their lives.

Prick the conscious - or condemn. I wonder...

//Prick the conscious - or condemn. //

It’s a fine line and I agree I would not trust a Facebook post in that regard.

 Re: it's 9:43 do you know where you are going

Hey Mr. Bill, I see that you posted at 9:43am on Sunday morning (the christian sabbath).

According to Facebook chapter 1 verse 101 you may be going to hell. Because, hasn't the WORSHIP SERVICE started already. And by logical deduction you aren't attending church.

BTW... how'd you do on the test?
