I read somewhere this week that a person can love the church without loving Jesus, but it is virtually impossible to love Jesus and not love the Church. This piece simply serves to remind us that we need a place to figure out the important instructions for life. That’s what we want to talk about today, but in a much more serious way.Why do I need the church in order to be taught about spiritual issues? Isn’t it true that as a believer in Christ I am filled with the Holy Spirit who is the ultimate guide to truth? According to John 16:13-15, that is absolutely true, but we need to consider some other issues.
