Why Go to Church When You Can Watch Online?

With more churches offering worship services and sermons online, one pastor is making the case that actual attendance at a church is still critical.

Tim Stevens serves as a pastor at a growing megachurch that has four campuses, including an online one. And while he touts the reach of digital services, he wants to make it clear that "the church needs you" and "you need the church."

"But the purpose of church is so much broader than that. It is about corporate worship, praying and studying the Bible together, serving one another and reaching out in mission together. This can't be done in isolation." ...

I have no problem with Churches broadcasting their services live. There have been some times I haven't made it to church, usually for good reasons, so those a real benefit.

But most Christians should already know that,

1 Corinthians 10
16 Is not the cup of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread which we break a sharing in the body of Christ?
17 Since there is one bread, we who are many are one body; for we all partake of the one bread.
18 Look at the nation Israel; are not those who eat the sacrifices sharers in the altar?---NASB

While we are alive here on earth we worship Christ in a body that is physical singularly but also collectively.
