“My house shall be a house of prayer” Luke 19:46 (ESV)
(churches) are places where God’s word is read, where Christ is present, and where the Holy Spirit works on souls. These facts ought to make us grave, reverent, solemn and decorous, whenever we enter them. The man who behaves as carelessly in Church as he would in an inn, or a private dwelling has yet much to learn. He has not the “mind of Christ.
