Does it say in the Bible that we must go to church on Sundays? Because lately I've been feeling like it's a false church, and they are not completely true with God.
Thank you, Pastor Lope.

LOPE COLUMNA: NO. The Bible does not say that you go to Church on Sunday. The True Day of Worship, according to God, the Creator of the Creation Week, is the 7th Day of the week (Genesis 2:2-3, Exodus 20:8). This 7th Day corresponds to our SATURDAY today. Sunday is the First Day of the week.
"And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He RESTED (SHABATH) on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. (Gen 2:2 KJV)
"And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had RESTED (SHABATH) from all his work which God created and made. (Gen 2:3 KJV)
"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. (Exo 20:8 MKJV)
The 7th Day Sabbath is very important because it completes and preserves the entire Creation, which means the Whole Universe and everything therein, including us, every human being!
THE 7TH DAY SABBATH: THE BLESSING DETERMINANT OF THE OTHER 6 DAYS OF THE WEEK!
In addition, this 7th Day Sabbath is the only day of the week wherein God pronounced a Blessing (Genesis 2:3), which means that the blessings of the other 6 days of Creation, depends on the Blessing that God gives to this 7th Day Sabbath. Sunday, the first day, was never blessed by God.
Applying the above truth to our day-to-day work, this means that the true success or failure (the degree of blessing or curse) of our efforts in the other 6 days of the week, depends on how we observe or keep the 7th Day Sabbath. In other words, whether God will bless or not our businesses, careers, and jobs, always depends on how we obey His command to "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy" (Exo 20:8).
If there is no Church in your area that observe the 7th Day Sabbath, you can just stay at home with your family, having a rest, communing with God, and studying His Bible.
