  • COLUMN: Is church really a big deal?

    Are you the kind of person that needs to know how something works or why you’re supposed to do it that way?  I have asked the same questions myself. “Why do I have to go to church?”  “Why Sunday?”  “What’s the big deal about church anyway?”  I commend you for asking good questions.  We need to understand two things: God blesses those who obey Him – even without knowing all the answers; secondly, answers are for our benefit, not God’s.
