Q&A: why should Christians attend church?
A reader asks on behalf of himself and his daughter. I briefly demonstrate that the Bible doesn’t just consider it normal to worship with other believers, but really a practice of such critical importance to our spiritual growth that avoiding it carries an expectation of furious judgment.
What is idolatry?
TLDR: it is worshiping other divine beings. It is not putting things before God—whether money, food, sport, entertainment, sex, love, family or anything else. You can’t worship those things, and making them your masters is not the same thing as idolatry.
