There is a popular book entitled, “They Like Jesus, But Not The Church” and I believe the sentiments have some merit.  But we can’t dismiss the church – the church is a part of God’s plan.   But the real goal of Christianity is to make us like Jesus. If we are truly “like Christ” all of our duties (including church)  will naturally fall into place.
