Churchianity Vs Christianity Pt 2

By Caleb Egwuenu
Continuing from last week on my stand against the church-centered religion of "Churchianity", rather than the Christ-centered religion of Christianity, some might be tempted to believe that I am one of those people who simply does not like church.  Yet nothing could be further from the truth. 

The reality is, I love church.  I loved church even before I was saved.  When I was a teenager, my mum had to actually ban me from spending so much time at the church (I was there Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings, Saturday mornings for Agape Force, Wednesday nights for bible study, and Thursday nights for choir practice).  I practically lived at the church; it felt like my true home, and I had a real show down with my mum when she banned me from attending so much. 

As an adult, things were pretty much the same.  I attended Sunday mornings, Sunday nights, Wednesday nights, Thursday evening, and when I was at a church that offered Saturday and Thursday morning prayer meetings, I went on those mornings as well.  

So you see, on a personal level, I have absolutely nothing against church.  One thing that does bother me, though, is that I never got saved when I was in any of the "church activities" that I attended, and many people today, whose lives also revolve around the church, are not saved either.  

The reason for this is simple: The CHURCH does not save people!  We are saved through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, which He fully accomplished at Calvary to save lost sinners from their sins.

I want to personally invite you to join House on The Rock The Refuge[The Citadel & Towers Right Turn Before City Gate Abuja] this Sunday[ 11th of June] by 8:30am, as the Pastor Continues on the Series that deals with the issue of Christianity and "Churchainity". See you there.
