I have little tolerance for this notion that you can be a follower of Christ and skip this whole church thing. It's kind of like saying you're a swimmer but you never saw the importance of water. If you don't like water, you're not a swimmer--and if you think church is unimportant, you're not a Christian. Let's see, Jesus dies for the Church and you treat her with disdain? Don't claim love and fidelity for the husband and treat the bride with contempt.
