Oh they are good!!!
« on: June 02, 2008, 11:53:26 AM »

I just got this from a former church buddy. I have got to hand it to whomever came up with this analogy. They are good at what they do. Well, so is satan  ;)

WHY GO TO CHURCH?

A Churchgoer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. I've gone and done it for 30 long years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the preachers are wasting theirs too by giving lengthy sermons at all." This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor.

It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.

Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!"

When you are DOWN to nothing...God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical and our spiritual nourishment! When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say," "Jesus, could you get that for me?"

Hi! Brother Kweli

What the wise guy says is very true...but...but as Ray would say, it all depends on who has done the preaching and what has been preached and in the analogy, it all depends on what sort of cook the wife is the quality of the meals she prepares. There is life in both and death in both. It think it's wisest to obey the Scriptures: "I heard another voice from heaven, saying, 'Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.'" (Rev.18:4,5).


God bless you brother in our joint walk in Christ. 

Love in Christ Jesus.
