    Churches that do not do charity, not even care for their own members, totally ignore the poor, do these churches worth to exist?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I mean the assumption behind your post is that Church services are worthless and do nothing for people.

    I do not know that any Churches do not do any overt charity work, but only an atheist would say that conducting services is not doing something for people, ultimately it does more for them than anything. Could some Churches do more? Maybe. But if a Church is acting as a place of worship to God then it is worth existing.

    The problem is an optical one. Many Christian churches are in reality businesses posing or pretending to be a church. One well-known denomination is not so much in the saving souls business as they are in the real estate business.

    And odd that the churches that let their members fend for themselves and do very little for the poor are usually the fastest growing and most adept at fund raising. Satan often puts on the best shows ...

    A Church that only wants people to come and do services in it, give some money and go away.
    What is the meaning of this Church?
    Jesus said it is not to worship God in Jerusalem nor any specific place.
    To be a Christian, I can worship God at home. Why must I go to Church?

    John 4:21, ESV: "Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father."
