Romans 14:1 "Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters."

There are many disputable matters, how loud is too loud, are musical instruments to be used in worship, do churches even needs buildings?
Maybe you can think of your own...
Now for some people, these "disputable things" are not disputable at all, but in REALITY, a person needs faith in Christ, salvation in Christ, and action in Christ to be saved from their sins. Worshipping God the right way won't get you into heaven, heck, if it did, maybe God wouldn't have given us this whole new covenant deal. Christianity deals with sin, worship is something Christians are saved to do. Maybe that's why Jesus took the emphasis about worship off the places and forms and put them on the person doing the worshipping, and himself. Remember that passage in John chapter 4: True worshippers will worship in spirit and in truth." Also remember when you read that that Jesus Identifies what the truth is, namely His word (John 8). Pray on that today! Pray that you will worship God in spirit and in truth. Personally, I believe Church buildings should be used a lot more than they are, after all, we spend so much money on them. If we expected to get the $ amount of return out of Church buildings that we get from what we pay ministers, a building would probably be worth about 10 preachers at least. Is that a weak area of my faith? I don't know. One thing I do know is that it has nothing to do with building the body to argue about it. So I won't do it. Same thing goes for worship styles. I don't care if it's a cappella or not, some songs should never be sung cause they teach against truth. Do I argue about it? Only if it's fun! :)
So what do we do? "Do the work of an evangelist" that's the charge I have, and if you aren't a Christian, decide today what you will do about that.
