    @Disciple I an surprised to hear u don't attend church.Not all of them r bad I found Life Church.You can catch his sermons online too. Psalms111:1 tells us to praise him. We r the body of Christ we are suppose to join together to praise and worship God.We just had a worship service where all the churches met at the same time to sing to God. It was awesome u could feel his presence.Ck out online.

    Dear Brother Steve morrow; O HOW FITTING THIS SCRIPTURE IS! If the Lord's priests who know these things would call assembly of the entire holy congregation of the LORD, old and young, men and women, and all the children and little ones, to come and stand before the LORD to seek His face in repentance; even to the very last second before Jesus comes; He would have mercy! But they in pride WILL NOT!

    If we humble ourselves and repent and turn from our sinful ways, God will hear our prayers , forgive us and will help us in our time of need and if we give our heart to Him completely, we will be filled with the love and glory of God. Come to your God through his son , The Lord Jesus Christ

    Lane; You are so right! That's one reason we don't go to church! They want another Jesus and another gospel that is easier for the world to relate to, and to protect them from persecution. It was said by Isaiah the Prophet, "And her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the LORD:" The spirit of fornication and covetousness has turned their hearts and sears their conscience with a hot iron.

    Douglas (cont.); I don't at all mean to discourage you, Brother; but I think we should still be realistic about the kind of times we now live in. Hezekiah was a godly man who surrounded himself with good men and Prophets of the LORD. It appears that it was a time (however short-lived) when there was some softening of the hearts of the people, which then complimented the king's good intentions.
