Im not a very religous person but I do believe that it doesn't matter how you worship as long as you're worshipping. Who says you have to go to church for God to love you? Just believing and understanding should be enough dont you think?
Yes, I do. I can understand why some people go to church, while others don't think a formal setting is necessary to reach out to God. One would think most people fall into one of these categories. But cyber worship? I don't see how it comes into play
I would guess that its prayer. Maby a community similar to hubpages community gets together and prays for one another. If thats the case, I think its pretty cool. Gonna do some more research on the subject. Thx for giving me something to do
Ritual is merely ritual. The communality of religion is for face to face interaction, for flesh and blood rather than bytes of data. The Internet is a great conveyor of information both sound and rotten, but human reality dies in the virtual cyberworld. But for the occasional shut-in who wants to watch a service, online worship is a fraud.
Agreed. My gut is that if you are a true believer and think that attending church is necessary, you better make the effort to show up in person. There may also be good uses, as Cara.R pointed out as long as it's not trying to be anything interactive.
It doesn't bother me. When was a little girl, I remember my grandmother watching mass on television because she never learned to drive and couldn't always make it to church on Sunday. Now a days, online churches and cyber worship isn't that much different. I'm sure there are people in the world that seek out online churches for all different reasons. I am thinking of those people; who want to be a part of church but can't physically get to church. And if it makes their life better for it, then good for them.
I don't see a problem with it until people start worshiping the actual computer. lol I don't go to church though. Its very hard to find a good one anymore. Most of them are so judgmental. I speak to God at home, or when I am out, really... anywhere.
Although I do think it may have some worth; I am not one to go to a church service for just the sake of worship (this may indeed be my flaw). I simply go to become more like Him "by drinking His blood and eating His flesh."
If you know where you stand with God and your beliefs it doesn't matter where you choose to worship him. I think churches are overrated and people go because its the "norm"...

If Jehovah Witnesses are Christians, why are they not allowed to go to church?JW's encourage everyone to come to Kingdom Hall. Why do they not accept invitations to visit church.

I'm continually frustrated by churches that do not seem to be reaching those who are far from Jesus. Is it fair to say that these churches are dead or dying? How would you define a dead or dying church?
