Perhaps you have not heard of the holy spirit? Do you honestly think that a person cannot read the Bible at home, pray to God in the name of Jesus and come to their own conclusions about some things. That really says a lot for what you think of our minds and human nature in general. Perhaps you have forgotten that God is the one who created us and gave us a brain to think for ourselves with?
I choose to not go to Church because all the churches I have attended have a cockiness about them, a "we are 100% right" attitude that disgusts me. I am perfectly capable of being with God without being in a Church setting or with other people for that matter. It is a personal matter. It doesn't matter what building you are in.
Don't be snide. You have not answered me as to what Christ or the Bible teaches about whether or not a person can sit home with their Bible and let the Holy Spirit tell them what they ned to know or the conclusions.
Of course you have all sorts of people saying the Holy Spirit told me X....well they can't all be right and they don't all agree...so how do you determine who's really led by the Holy Spirit??
You are holding to this idea and it's not even taught in the Bible. What does the Bible say the pillar and foundation of Truth is? Where does the Bible say sit home with your Bible and wait for the Holy Spirit to reveal to you what to think?
It does matter what building you are in....Christ makes that pretty clear too.
