In reading some of these threads, I started wondering why non-Catholics go to Church. I also had a discussion with some friends who were not “satisfied” with their “church” or service because new ministers were hired and their style “doesn’t teach them anything.”
I attend Mass to receive the Eucharist. To hear the Word of God and and share in the community is a bonus. I don’t attend to listen to a homily.
Why else go to Mass/church? To learn what Jesus taught? With Sola Scriptura being discussed here, that doesn’t make sense. Everyone has the opportunity to make up what they want to believe. Why not just a make it weekly picnic? On Saturday for that matter.
I’m just curious what others think. Thank you.
