Episode 130: Is The Local Church Still Valid Have you noticed the increase of people abandoning their commitments to local assemblies? Since Covid put local church gatherings on a temporary pause, we have discerned that many have since then seemingly concluded with the government that churches are non-essential. But is this true? Does God care if we are part of a local assembly of Christians on a regular basis? Today’s episode explores many of the reasons why people have given up on the local church. It also offers biblical pushback that God would ever approve such a notion. Our churches are terribly flawed –you don’t need nine spiritual gifts to discern that. Yet, with all her flaws, Jesus has not walked away nor given up on the local expression of His body. If you have done so, whatever the reasons, this podcast episode will offer you spiritual food for thought.
