Why not just stream church from home?

By Shane Rice – September 23, 2020.

Preface

We are living in a very strange day with what has been called a ‘global pandemic’. Many people are staying at home out of an abundance of caution and concern for their health. My intention is not to coerce people out of their homes who are not going to work or to the store in an effort to protect their health. This was written for those who out of convenience and comfort would rather stay home and watch church online rather than come to church. It is convenient, and comfortable to watch church at home. However, you are seriously short-changing your own spiritual life by doing so. Serving and worshiping the Lord has never been about convenience.

God requires assembly

Heb. 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

There are many other verses which clearly demonstrate people coming together for worship. Watching a service online is not the same as “assembling” ourselves together. There is great value in getting together with other believers. Seeing others who are assembling is an encouragement. You may not realize it, but when others see you, it comforts and encourages them. In that sense, watching online doesn’t encourage anyone else. Almost NO ONE knows you watched a service online. Even those who publish the service do not know you watched, unless you specifically inform them.
