LIST: Real Reasons Why People Go To Church. Truth We All Know But Dont Say by HardMirror(m): 2:25pm On Aug 26, 2018
This is a list of the wrong reasons why people go to church, but who am i to say these things are wrong. You be the judge


1. Because everyone is going. Majority dont like going to church. They reluctantly go because everyone is going and they are expected to go.

MY PROOF: they are distracted in church and always want to leave as soon as they enter. 2hours service is even too long. Most cant just wait to leave as soon as they enter.

2. To show off. yes. Most people cant wait to get to church to show off their new cloths, jewellery , cars and finally tell testimony of how fantastic their lives are. Everyone that attends churches knows that man and woman who always wants to give testimony of how he travels in first class, bla bla bla praise God for my fantastic life! grin

MY PROOF: majority would refuse to go to church if they cant iron their cloths or dont have fancy cloths to wear. Dont lie, have you not dodged church because of cloths before? Or when u dont have offering. Lolz


3. To get husband/wife/friends with benefits. In Nigeria church is a good hunting ground for play boys. They dress nice and smell nice and talk smooth, soon a choir member would be singing under bros. This is unfortunate.
Same thing applies to ladies looking for husbands. Church is the place to get the bros that are ready for marriage especially if you have wasted your youthful days in the world. Jesus arms are always welcoming he would give you an innocent brother to dump your remnant on.

My PROOF: just wait after service and see how bros and sis start pairing. Also from stories i get first hand.

4. To sell things/ for business church is where many ply their trade. Where to get clients for your GNLD products, where to get people for referal to MMM, where you sell your cloth materials at ridiculous price. Etc.

MY PROOF: many have approached me for one business or the other just after service. Especially the women, they always have something they want you to buy.

5. Because no where else to go. Need for miracle. Desperation poverty, ill health and a belief in miracles.

My proof. Many who are comfortable forget about church until they have problems.


What has been your experience.

There's reason for every act. The reason could either be good or bad.


Now, those reasons mentioned for going to church aren't bad reasons. The reasons become bad if they're not preceded by the reason to join others(collectively) in worshiping God.


The church is a social religious gathering. You can socialize(interact, show off, sell outside the church, woo a lady) after service.

You don't go to church to' worship' God per say. The word WORSHIP means you dedicate your life to something. All those reasons you mentioned 90percent of people now go to church because of that. Even me am not exempted. Am not a gullible Christian, but since I found the real Christianity. I became reluctant to church

Reminds me of a time when an old man at a bar was saying that he goes to church to look at fashion. You always find the latest fashion in church. The old man is a tailor.

Most of the reasons are wrong. Why would go to church for such? Well, I blame there churches, not the attendees. True religion is not meant for that purpose.

That's why you'll know that you're not really born again during your own time simply because these are the ways you spent your Christian life.

Just like the person you quoted has said, if you're going to church because of all these, then it means you're not truly born again.

The psalmist says [b"I am glad, when they say let's go to the house of God"[/b]

Though I agree with you that many people are actually doing those things you listed and many pastors aware of Christian-Atheist in the church.

What do you mean by MY CHURCH?

Last time I check, there is only one church which is the Body of Christ.

Jesus Christ built his church with his name and not any other name.

People go to church for these reasons and more.
Some people because they genuinely want to be in the "presence of God" as they call it.

I'm not religious though. I stopped going to church since my university days.
