What verse proves this? Don't forsake the assembling can be done in many ways and at various times. I know many who don't leave their homes on Sunday morning and they're as faithful as any I've ever known in a "church" building. Are these home-churchers all unsaved?
What a silly remark. You mean "shut the doors of the temple..."
