Most Christians never give much thought about the obvious differences between what they read in their Bible about church and what they practice in their own lives. They assume that since everyone nowadays is doing things differently than what the Christians in the New Testament did and were commanded to do, that these changes must somehow be okay with God. They take comfort in knowing that they are in the mainstream.
The purpose of this site is to motivate Christians to read God's word for themselves and see what it says about what should happen and shouldn't happen in a church meeting. And hopefully it will motivate a few of them to obey God and give his word its rightful place of authority in their lives, even if it means no longer being in the mainstream.
Some things in the Bible are hard to understand, but not this subject. On this matter, the Bible spells things out very simply and in a plain way that anyone can understand. But as simple as they are, these particular truths can be hard to accept because doing so will almost certainly have very real effects on your reputation, your friendships, and your family relationships.
"If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." - Luke 14:26
