10 REASONS PEOPLE DO NOT ATTEND CHURCH

HEB 10:24-25

1 - TIME

work schedules ballgames kids mowing gardening

2 - BORING IRRELEVANT

music preaching - cannot relate to it (or the people)

3 - OTHER INTERESTS

friends hobbies t.v. ....etc.

4 - GUILT

living a sinful life that they love more than they

love God and want to change

5 - TOO MANY DENOMINATIONS

which one is right? - wouldn’t it be worth the time to investigate

*It wouldn’t shock me to find when we stand in judgment that there were poor

quality churches in every denomination -

6 - HYPOCRITES

They are out there - but that is no reason to desert God’s church

Wheat and Tares - God DID warn us

7 - THEY CONSIDER THEMSELVES TO BE GOOD PEOPLE

Most of us are, even before coming to Christ

If you refuse to be a part of God’s church you are not good

in the most important place

8 - SOMEONE HURT THEIR FEELINGS

everyone’s feelings have been hurt -

surely a family member has hurt feelings before - you didn’t find a new home

9 - ‘GOD KNOWS MY HEART’

This answer is not as humble as it sounds

*your life is not a complex as mine- I have a good enough heart that God is o.k.

w/me

*OR - My heart is good enough I don’t have to do what God

requires of all other Christians

10 - THEY MISSED THE POINT

God’s kingdom is not about selfishness but selflessness

*Too many have jumped ship - abandoned the call -

*found a reason why they don’t follow the Savior

There are no valid reasons for not taking our place in God’s church - the body of Christ.

Matt 13:47-49 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into

the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore,

and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it

be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from

among the just,

Don’t be a bad fish!! Keep the faith.
