More practicing Christians disengaging from church during pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the decline in church attendance, even among regular churchgoers, a recent survey shows.

Around one in five churchgoers (22% churched adults, 19% practicing Christians) said they have never attended a service during the pandemic, either in person or online, Barna Research found. Before the pandemic, all practicing Christians and most churched adults had reported attending church at least once within the last six months.

"Overall in the data, we are seeing that there’s a decline in church engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic," Barna's director of published research, Savannah Kimberlin, told The Christian Post. ...

Think not of yourself as having any ability, without Christ.
Thus Without Justification???

“I arrogated the little good I had, to my own wisdom and diligence; but you have undeceived my partial mistakes, and now have effectually convinced me that every excellence is entirely your gift (Jas 1.17); that without you we can do nothing (Joh 15.5); and as the psalmist well observes, unless you, Lord, are pleased to keep the city, the watchman wakes but in vain (Psa 127.1). You have taught me by experience, what little significance human strength and industry are, by leaving me for a while destitute of your help, and bringing my supposed abilities to the proof. This was not for your better information, who knew me perfectly before, but in order to create in me right notices of myself; and to abate that unjust esteem which I entertained for qualifications not yet understood.” (Augustine. Meditations).

Well, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is obviously going to “depart from the fray” for a few months next year, by taking a sabbatical in his cottage in France, (if he is allowed to travel, the way things are going). Perhaps he will sample a country lockdown, French style, and get used to wearing his mask in the garden, as required no doubt by law, and policemen (gendarmes) checking to see if he has a reasonable excuse for taking his walk down into the village!! Meanwhile he will leave the C of E in the capable liberal hands of the Archbishop of York, (a real hard core liberal), and the lady Bishop of London. Meanwhile, the “evangelicals” will be continuing, no doubt, to hold their masked services, with tape, sealed off seats, lone visitors being required to sit on their own, no real fellowship, no congregational singing allowed, no communion or baptisms, or interfered with, and when the call comes, they will line up en massse, just as the globalists intended, at the local mass vaccination centre, to receive their probably by now mandatory COVID 19 vaccination with all its dodgy contents!!

I must away and get ready for meeting shortly. Don't forget the other part of the exhortation, brother. Later.....

Hebrews 10:24-27 KJV
(24)  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
(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.
(26)  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
(27)  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Today at my Baptist Church it was the Celebration Thanksgiving Service. There were songs, Bible readings, video of individuals from church giving thanks and prayers.

The "visible" church is becoming less visible.

Nothing new there.

I believe all churches will eventually be empty, unless they realise that they are responsible for feeding their sheep and leading them into a deeper sacrifice in their life, irrespective of complaints from the pew. If people will not follow Jesus Christ, let them go, they will only badly affect the others who do desire to follow Jesus Christ with all their heart.

Those church buildings which maintain an attendance, will most likely be full of pseudo Christians, who have no intention whatever of obeying the Bible, and their motto is, "Do Whatever You Want".

The church authorities, including many previously solid evangelicals, just rolled over in March, and not only accepted all the rules and conditions imposed on them by decree of the government, not laws, but orders passed on the spot by prime ministers, presidents, governors, mayors and prefects, but even in some cases zealously adopted measures of their own before they were eventually even required by the government. In Britain, the liberal denominational leaders were the most zealous, but the evangelicals quickly followed behind, and they have been deafeningly silent. Our churches been closed for months on end, and when opened, have basically had to have a 32 or so page document which sets out all they are allowed or forbidden to do by the government in every aspect of their worship, operation and ministry. Congregational singing is still banned from March, even though everyone has to wear a mask, and the sacraments have been banned or interfered with. As to the threatened mass vaccination of everyone with ill tested vaccines, filled with foetal tissue, DNA changing agents and maybe marker systems, will these silent evangelicals line up willingly for their mandatory jab?
