QA: Why Does Anyone Need to Assemble?

QUESTION: If the church exists in homes, why does anyone need to assemble? - May 17, 2020 [Full answer is available in Publications On COVID Quarantine 2020]

ANSWER: Because Scripture teaches the need for assembling as saints. Our worship is NOT determined by the place, but by the action and attitude. Our word "worship" comes in two parts: 1.

Lend Me Your Ears: Mini Article Available

In William Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” Act 3, Scene 2, Mark Antony says: “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.” Why pay attention to this fictional invitation, but neglect to hear God’s appeal: “Give ear, O my people, to my law; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth” (Psalm 78:1); OR to the appeal of Solomon: “My son, pay attention to my wisdom; Lend your ear to my understanding” (Proverbs 5:1); OR to the appeal of Jesus Christ: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life”     (John 5:24).
