Conclusion
  • After reading the above excuses you realize people go to church for no good reason. You are supposed to go to church for the worship of God. There is no reason greater than the death of Christ. Don’t console yourselves, go to church and worship our creator.
  • Satan is real, we should go to church for our own good.
  • God won’t be listening to your complaints, it would be a yes or no to heaven.
  • Is there a problem when your pastor drives a five million car? I don’t think so. An investment in your spiritual mentor is not a loss. Everything we possess belongs to God, people spend millions on witchdoctors but giving your pastor its pain and wastage. Crazy world!
  • Don’t go to church for formality, or as a last resort, go to church based on your faith and for a purpose. Most of these churches are full of hypocrites of the highest order, even some preachers are more sinners than the attendees.
  • The Bible says we should not forsake the gathering of brethren
  • Folks say the Church is full of hypocrites and that’s why they quit going. Your job is full of hypocrites, yet you are still there and show up 40 hours a week!
  • If nothing can stop me from going to work, then nothing should stop me from going to church irrespective.
  • It’s like Pastors are making people go or not go to church and not the relationship with God, please go. The Father’s hands are always open wide. He is waiting to embrace you. Just go as you are, His love is unconditional.
  • The church is you. Don’t go to church because of others. Play your part to make the church better.
  • But God didn’t kill people, people killed people. God destroyed those places that sinned beyond measure, He is a father, therefore discipline is paramount. What the devil does is prepare you for eternal damnation and suffering.
