@op true and false to your queries . Some churches are social centers e. g. Rehma chapel and believer love world on campuses.
Some mosque too are places ces where violent are master minded. Example, yusuf the slain boko haram leader turn portion of kano central mosque to a bomb manufacturing unit before he became a political liability and fell out with the mosque leadership.

OXCUBA: I always think of this but can't figure it out. Am not criticising any group or worship and is not a Christian vs Muslim issue. But i just want someone to clear my doubt
Talking about Church is all about spiritual matter and not worldly affairs or what we call wordiliness. The church of God is not about auditorium whether beautifully decorated or not. It is not even all about the spiritual leaders and how services are conducted. It is about an individual seeing himself or herself as being spotless in the Christ‘s ordained principles and faith: the spiritual level that Christians must struggle to attain in their relationships with God. A church is about individual member that has seen himself/herself as being fit to spiritually join with other members that are truly serving God and doing His will, and who are coming together as a body which head is Christ. Jesus described how the replicas of his body should look like: people who are set to worship God in spirit and truth; people are more concerned about making heaven and as a result of this doing justly, loving and caring for others. A church should be traced back to the priorities of the early church such having the zeal and passion to look out for the lost souls and bring them to God, and settling them down and teaching them sound doctrines of the scriptures in the ways Christ and Apostles did.

Rexyl:how can you say that a church is not all about auditorium whether beautiful or decorated and is not all about spiritual leader. Most of our spiritual leaders play an active role in bring us close to God but not all thou. So spiritual leaders matters a lot in the up bring of church and a church must be well decorated because it is a holy place.

Churches AND mosques are often a place where people go because of culture and habit.
And sure, sometimes in some mosques there might be some extremist activities going on.
But for di most part its just like church, Jumu'ah (like christian sunday) is on friday and they pray and the Imam preaches afterwards. The difference is for example the lack of singing in mosques, where its forbidden, while us christians like to sing and praise.

yeah a church is not about auditorium and who stays in the front. A church is an evidence of spiritual structure but which manifests in the physical gathering of believers that worship God in the way that pleases Him, not for selfish interest of anyone, that is reason I stated it was not about those leading. You know the Bible says it is possible for believers to gather and do as if they serve God but God might not be in their mist, Matthew 15:8. Second, it is only gathering of believers built and covered by the Spirit of God and having faith in Jesus that should be regarded as a Church. How to know this? It is when sound doctrines are being delivered - not mind blowing messages contaminated with evil thoughts and practices. Third, are the leaders called and anointed by God to do His work? Where it sounds to be no, people are just gathering under the influence of the flesh which is contrary to the atmosphere and work of Holy Spirit. Pls don't be mistaken about our freedom as Christians. You know gospel of Jesus declares liberty for us 1 Corinthians 3:17. The liberty is available only when and where it is conducive for God‘s Spirit to dwell with us whether as an individual or collectively as a Church. Definitely a place of freedom and holy place must edify presence of God and His work. Such should be beautifully decorated but it is the spiritual aspects that matter most.
