Why Jesus Hates Religion: Part 5 – Religion Doesn’t Really Need God

The Heart of Worship

Christ can work wherever he chooses. In any denomination, any church style.

The style is not what matters.

It’s the question of who – or what – is at the center of that church. God, or men? The Spirit, or flesh? Entertainment, or worship?

A church building may be aesthetically appealing – or its music sweet to the ear – and this does not necessarily mean that the focal point of the church is entertainment.

It takes vision and discernment of the Spirit to know who is at the center of the church, regardless of the material surroundings and aesthetics, or lack thereof.

The question is, are the worshipers within still able to meet God in a different – perhaps less comfortable or familiar – church setting?
