  • Why do we stress church attendance? — JBA

    The Church is literally the Body of Christ. This means that corporately, not individually, we are Christ himself, still incarnate in the world, doing His work.
    If a person desires with their whole heart, one can unite to Christ and become a member of his body. Ideally, this is motivated by a simple desire to know God and to be where he is.
    Out of this love for God comes the desire to follow his commands and to worship him. However, this happens in a context which is not our own.
    Orthodoxy maintains the ancient Jewish belief that God is manifest in the temple.
