About Gatherings

We gather as the church as often as we feel the need. This may seem a bit presumptuous to some but consider what the Master said in regard to keeping the Sabbath day, "The Sabbath was made for man not man for the Sabbath." This must have blown the religious people of his day away! It would seem that Jesus wanted his people to not become subservient to a day. If the Jewish people under the law were not servants to the Sabbath, then why should we, children of grace, be servant to a standing meeting?

Bob, I have been thinking much lately about meetings. Frequency, purpose, ya da, ya da. I have been encouraged by recently reading Revolution by George Barna. He is saying, and from my own limited research, the bible backs this up, that the meetings are not the thing that matters so much to "being the church" as is our daily living - which of course should involve regular, meaningful relationships with believers.
