The church of Jesus Christ exists on earth for one purpose, and that is to save men from their sins (Romans 1:16). With that being the case, it is easy to see that the church has no earthly mission (John 18:36, 17:16; 1 Timothy 3:15). Many people believe that the church is supposed to be involved in everything, and when I say everything, I mean just that. For example, some put the church into politics, some put the church into recreation, some put the church into supporting human institutions. Just look at some of the church buildings out there, they have gyms, kitchens, youth centers, ball fields, college fund raisers, spa’s, etc. etc. Are people going to church or a vacation club?
The only thing a church needs to provide are rooms in which to teach the gospel and buy equipment that helps the church perform that work (Ephesians 3:10; Acts 20:28; Hebrews 10:25).
Man needs to let the church be the church, and if he wants recreation, meals, politics, etc; let him do that on his time and leave the Lord’s house out of it (Romans 14:17; 1 Corinthians 11:34).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
