  1. โ€œEvery day people are straying away from the Church and going back to God.โ€ To me, it should say that going back to God is going back to the Church in some respects. Church is in Acts in the bible and Peter built the first church on a Rock. It was outside. So Church is the People.

    1. I know what you mean, and I agree that Church is the people but, this particular quote relates to those who have, sadly, been hurt and/or put off attending conventional churches. I have experienced it myself in the past so, depending on how strong your faith already is, a situation where you are made to feel unwelcome or ‘not good enough’ can seriously put people off all together.
      I read a great book recently by a Vicar from London, you might want to check it out, it’s called ‘How to be a Bad Christian and a Better Human Being’ by Dave Tomlinson. Although not connected, it makes even more sense of this quote. Be blessed my friend ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

      1. Thanks for writing and clarification. I, too, have been not felt welcome at most churches. It’s because I smoke cigarettes. I was involved with the church for years while I raised my daughter as a single mother. One day a kid was rude to my daughter but she did not tell me until she got home. She said the teacher stuck up for the other girl. I left the church and never went back. I did find an evangelical church, for awhile. I left it too. I do read the bible daily and loved your quote. I am going to get the book for sure! Thanks so much, Jackie ๐Ÿ™‚
