Collective Apathy (unedited). 25 March 2012

An example of collective apathy is when people, congregation or organization is more interested in the entertainment. Than the meaning, purpose or reason of the meeting, event or church service. C.J.MacKechnie
You must confront your own thoughts and emotions when in any kind of group meeting or Church service.  What is your favorite part of the service or meeting? The food?, the song?, Leaving the parking lot before anyone else does?, Hoping the church service does not interfere with a sporting event?, 
This is really critical. Because, if you think and believe that my comments here are of no importance or not a big deal. Let me tell you this. Only 8 people were saved during the great flood. I believe that the percentage of holy people save if there is a rapture is going to be less than 10% of the total church. I think I'm exaggerating but a large number. I've already written that I do not believe a rapture will occur. But, I'm not so prideful to deny it when my invite comes.
The importance of the church service or any other religious meeting is to prepare your mind, your spirit and your body for everyday living in the world and not of the world. This is serious. You must repent and flee from your sins. You must know that your secret sins is not a secret to GOD. To further this. Your secret sins are not even a secret to the Angels-all of them. Nor to the demons or ghosts or other principalities. You must repent and acknowledge your sins. then actively flee from them. Cleave to GOD, To your HOLY BOOK, To the Holy Spirit.
Begin to have an active prayer and meditative life. Create this habit and history. 
If you belong to one of those Mega churches. Leave it. They won't miss you. Especially if your not a wealthy tithing donor. Find the church where you can be intimately involved. Preferably one with an active food bank. Probably a church which is debt free and probably in some small out building.
The brick and mortar is not of importance. You are the church and you are the temple. Become it.
