I just want to emphasize, in case I was not clear. I am not saying don't go to church. Church is very good, it provides fellowship and good foundation, especially if its a good church. However, God doesn't need you to go to church to have intimacy with him. You can be anywhere and connect with him. We grow in connection by intimacy. Intimacy is created by continuing conversation between you and Him, and Soaking and Praising him through worship music. And also by digging into his written word. Amen? Make sense?
