If we go to the Bible in the new testament to the book of Ephesians ch. 4:12-14 it says
12" For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;"
We see why Christ set up his church when he was on the Earth so he could help us and lift us and perfect us! We go to church to have that support of leaning against our brothers and sisters so we can keep ourselves out of the "mud" or sin. Church is were we go after a long week of being tempted by Satan to sin so we can feel re-energized by the word of God and by fellow Saints. But even though church is only once a week, that doesn't mean we can only be supported once a week. It means that God gave us a way to get through the week on our own and those things are the scriptures and prayer. So during your week lean you back against prayer and scripture study and then go to church so you can feel that added measure of support. So please take Benjamin Buford Blue's advice and lean back to back (go to church) so you can keep your head out of the mud (sin).
