Don't talk yourself out of going to church

I hear it all the time: "I am spiritual. I just don't go to church." Or, "I believe in God. I just can't handle how church people act." They are some of the most common explanations people offer to me when I ask them about their spiritual lives. Another version of this is: "Why do I need to go to church? God loves me as I am. I can worship Him (Actually, they seldom use that phrase.) and I can experience Him anywhere."
