“not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.” (Romans 10:25) An article began by asking the question, “When the faithful gather online, are they a church?” In another article, the question went, “We have e-Greetings, e-Business and eBay. Why not have e-Church?” We would go to e-Church to e-Worship and e-Pray. A national survey by Barna Research Group, found that one of six teenagers expected to use the internet as a substitute for church activities. Another Barna study found that those who claim to be “born again” Christians spend more time surfing the net than they do praying. We need to understand that there are things that can be done on the internet and things that cannot be done. The internet can be used for accumulating information about anything. The information can be good or bad, but there is here an avenue and a potential to reaching many thousands with a message. There are some things that just cannot be done online. One cannot have a physical church online, or on TV, unless you are not able to get out and attend one. When the Lord set up the arrangement of a local church, or body, He gave it responsibilities that cannot be met online. Local churches in the New Testament met together on the Lord’s Day, or first day of the week, to partake of the Lord’s Supper together (Acts 20:7). These early Christians were told not to forsake assembling themselves together in one place. Churches were told to select men from among them to function as elders and deacons, and were told to watch over that congregation There is a mutual sharing and fellowship that requires being physically together, a “coming together as a church.” So, “Why not an “E-church?” No one can successfully substitute what they can find on the internet with what God means for them to find in a physical Scriptural church patterned in work and worship and fellowship after the local church in the New Testament as they were established by the will of God.
