You will notice the title is not a question. For many, there is no question. The lives of most church members make that statement each Sunday morning.
Recently, I posted a couple of articles that addressed the issue of “church attendance” on my Facebook page and I found it interesting that both garnered similar responses. The first article, A Plea to Pastors: Don’t Cancel Church on Christmas, asked pastors to open their church on Christmas Day. If you recall, Christmas 2016 fell on a Sunday. READ MORE
Well, it’s certainly been a while since I’ve blogged. Over the past year so many things have changed in my life and blogging just took a backseat . . . but then . . . I came across something that caught my attention.
The title of the article or blog found on the website “faithit.com” was/is:

I remember growing up and learning about the Armor of God. You know that passage in Ephesians where we are told to “take up the whole Armor of God.” This battle uniform is described as having the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, shoes of readiness given by the gospel, and of course the shield of faith.
