Four Church Myths

A great post at Out of Ur about four myths about the church:

Myth 1: The church is merely a human organization.

Myth 2: The church is a supermarket for spiritual groceries.

Myth 3: The church is just a gathering of a few believers.

Myth 4: The church is optional.

Let’s be clear. A Bible study is not a church. It’s a Bible study. Getting together in the home for prayer is not a church. It’s a prayer meeting. A herd of Christians with a guitar and tambourine is not a church. It’s a sing-along. A man or woman opening the Bible and preaching at a willing crowd is not a church. It’s an exercise of free speech. A gathering of saints for eating and gossiping (often misconstrued as “fellowship”) is not a church. It’s a party.
