Be encouraged to share the gospel in your town, where you live. God is everywhere. He is not found in one location. Drunkenness is lacking responsibility. Those that bother those of us pure in Christ should not be bothered by the sin around us. We instead need to focus on Christ and what He is doing in our lives. Walk away from those that don’t accept or listen to us (sharing the gospel of Christ). Church is of the world. They need people to keep up and slave their buildings, payments and paying for hirelings, they’re a business of the world system. Churches are in darkness, live in the dark, thinking they are in light, “woe unto them.”

Being busy is important to worldly people. They work hard for vain things. It’s like a status symbol for these modern times. Self is more important than God, neighbors.
Salvation is in Jesus not the church people attend. The church is part of the world system. The religious establishments, much controlled by satan, influenced by him. Man’s religious spirit places importance over certain days and dates. Pleasing men is not pleasing God.
