    I see, so God is found everywhere other than religion.

    Thanks for that.

    So you found God once you stopped going to church?

    Do tell.

    You can converse with God anytime you like, when he's not busy...

    Just asking. Did you find God outside of church or are you merely speculating that you can?

    I never made the accusation that you can't, but I have also witnessed people who have made that connection in church, myself being one of them.

    To put it in a nutshell;
    7 Bible verses about God Living In Us

    I thought I found God a couple of different times in my life but when I finally did find Him I realized that what I found before was religion...........

    So do you think that the church Christ was setting up is no longer needed or is the church something other than church?

    People have (from the beginning and in many instances) molded the church(s) to their desires. Different denominations/sects claiming they are the only true Christians, etc, Churches that have become political, etc, church members claiming they have led x number of people to Christ (they didn't, God did through them)......... Hell fire, brimstone preachers, politically correct preachers, certain sects teaching God's hate as opposed to God's love and for the most part all of them focusing on the splinters in others eyes instead of the logs in theirs.
    It's not that the church is not needed it's that in all too many cases it's been perverted. God's temple is in each one of us that's where we should look first.

    Not entirely sure, but I think I am reading posts on the internet and replying to them.

    In an hour I might be working in my garden.

    Its that kind of day and I love them thanks to not bothering with the Nitwit Felons League today.
