I’m going to say this because I actually think it’s an incredibly important issue…

I’m seeing a lot of posts about “I don’t need to go to church because church isn’t a building it’s the people” aka we are the church talk, and I have to say…as mostly true as that is, that’s not actually Biblical.
Yes, a church building is simply that, just a building but the whole purpose of the church was about a place where believers could get together and worship with one another. Now-a-days the name “church” has been thrown around so loosely it’s lost a lot of meaning, which really sucks because that’s what gives people the idea that it’s not needed. The church is not to break from community it’s to help create community, so actually claiming you don’t need a church rebukes fellowship and community and is in fact unhealthy.
The church is supposed to be a holy place. Before the Holy Spirit lived in us (believers), the Holy Spirit dwelt in a place called the Holy of Holies, it was the inner sanctuary of the temple (“church” — it was made up of several parts) NO ONE could enter except for the high priest who still could not enter except for once a year (read Heb 9 for more detail)
                and on that side note, whoa… like how awesome that God tore that veil (Matt 27) so that we would no longer be separated from God…like that should give us goosebumps…that Spirit which was so powerful if anyone would enter His (God’s) presence they would die now lives in us!
And then the argument can be “yeah well I have friends I get together with”…you know what, that is awesome, honestly, that is fellowship and it is SO important…but it’s still not healthy to neglect the idea of church. We need community because so much happens that we miss by neglecting connecting with other members of the body. We’re not healthy on our own. We’re not even healthy in a small group alone. If we reject the idea of God’s church—not America’s church, not our own personal idea of church— we’re blatantly rejecting the truth of His Word, we reject the body as a whole.

Some predicaments are unchangeable for a season or more, I understand that, like some people have no way of getting to a church so I’m not saying that not going means you don’t love God, haha…and if your purpose is to go for routine or looks then there’s really no point, but I am saying for those who think “hey I’m a Christian and I don’t actually need a church to plug into” it’s not really setting up foundations that match God’s desire for us.
I just want us all to be careful and weary, myself included!, of pushing out things that were actually made to benefit us and God’s kingdom.

Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.

And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:

“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”

To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.

The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.

Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?

Perfect
