Church is where we learn to please God and not ourselves. Church is where we learn about the beliefs of God and not our beliefs. Church is where we go to serve God by doing what He wants and not what we want. Church is where we should hear the preacher give book, chapter, and verse for what he teaches. At church, no preacher or church leader should be teaching the opinions of himself or anyone else. Church is the place were we come to worship the Creator and not the minister, choir, church building, etc. Some churches put up signs saying, “A church for your beliefs.” Or, “We believe in tolerance.” I question what those beliefs are, and I question what a church may tolerate.
And I wonder if God is pleased with what those churches are doing (Revelation 2:18-20). Everything a church does must be according to the scriptures or that church will be wrong (2 John 8-9, Matthew 15:13-14, John 4:24, 1 Timothy 4:16, 1 Tim. 6:3, 2 Tim. 1:13, Galatians 1:8-9, John 8:31-32, 1 Timothy 4:13).
