    If you dont go to church then priests can no longer brainwash you and take your money.

    'God' is not  seeking worship or worshipers,
    because, God is only an everlasting 'Truth',
    which is to be accepted as the foundation of your faith.

    You can always prayer from anywhere. There is no need for any specific attire, ritual, diet, holy book, temple, synagogue, church or anything material. You are the "temple of God". God resides within each of us.

    There is advantage when more people come together to pray. Higher the number of people coming to pray makes the prayer stronger. They do not need to be within a building or church.

    However, most the time the congregation in churches are listening to the voice from pulpit. Beware of those messages from the pulpit as they contain hate, contempt and false information about others who don't follow those doctrines or views.

    Sure, one could worship God from anywhere but, going to the church makes one get collective positive vibes (from the people praying there) and the intensity of one's prayer becomes more.

    saying the above through my own experience smile

    I think that God is just an imaginative good person.

    Church is certainly not what it seems today to be. Christian people are the Church, the body of Christ. They seem more concerned about your 10% than your soul. Jesus went to these places of worship didn't he? I think he studied scripture just as he expects us to do and he learned from teachers of the Old Testament and I believe they discussed much of the bible. He corrected them on many things. Church is for learning and for fellowship, Christians are our family and hopefully our family are Christians. Many things come on people through their life and this Christian family while through our blood or Jesus' blood are to remind us of the word and help our faith in times of trouble and tribulation. If you cannot find a church like that, you could have study with just your spouse, your family, your friends, whatever it takes to keep your closeness to God. He says where there are TWO or more in my name, there I will be also. God holds you accountable for your 10% also. Giving it to a church is too easy, find someone in need, know where God's money goes and be sure He approves.

    Indoctrination is easier when it is collective.  You get the group herd mentality juices flowing.  People are open and more submittable to suggestion, ideas and brainwashing in large settings.  Ever see those maniacs in stadium sized auditoriums or "super churches"  Disgusting really when you think of how much mankind has accomplished in science and technology, only to see a bunch of blockheads gathered with sheepish stares and mindless chants, praying to an invisible old man in the sky for personal childish desires.

    Whether you go church or at home, with sincere prayer and your heart with God, I believe it should be alright.

    It is a matter of faith and belief that we should bear in mind.

    This is from an agnostic that sees the bible as great philosophy, but has come from a very religous family and is very open minded to religion.  The real meaning of worshiping God is giving in to something beyond the self.  The real worshiping of God is in the actions towards others, the way we lead our lives.  If you believe in God, you are worshiping him/her with every kind deed you do, every kind word you say.  Some believe that going to church is essential to their celebration of God.  Some learn more about the bible this way and find comfort in a group.  The indiviual should research and find what they feel is right.  Follow your instincts.  If you feel you are doing better worshiping from home then that is what you should do.  The most important thing is to follow what you believe and do not judge others for following what they believe.

    i think it is more for social reasons then anything. you can pray anywhere but i think that being around people with the same ideas as you have gives you a stronger sense of belief. what i find funny about this question is the truly religious hubbers that are answering your question don't actually provide an answer.like what does this have to do with your question is beyond me. it sounds more like someone who is brainwashed and only knows what they read. strange.  'God' is not seeking worship or worshipers,

    because, God is only an everlasting 'Truth',
