What’s Your Excuse?

Since I starting pastoring churches back in ’90’s, I’ve heard it all.

But if you’ve been looking for an excuse NOT to go to church, this old song from The Kingsmen may help.

What’s your excuse?

9 Excuses You Don’t Have to Miss Church

It’s not too early… You would have already been at work.

You’re not too tired… You’d find a way to make it to something else.

You have enough time… You waste more than enough time watching reality TV.

It’s not boring… Try someplace else if they can’t get excited about Jesus. And, you know, it might not be the preacher, or the worship; it might be your heart.

They don’t want your money… If in doubt, just go where the pastor drives a used car (which are most).

You can dress decently… No, you’re not going to Wal-Mart, but you never complain about wearing clean clothes a party.

The seats are not that uncomfortable… Good grief, you sat in bleachers for 3 hours at a ball game – and sweat the whole time!

The people are not a bunch of hypocrites… To be honest, there are just as many or more at a ball game or the office. For that matter, are there skeletons in your closet? Do you wear makeup? Ever feel like you have to wear a mask? Then what are you complaining about?

It’s NOT optional as a Christian… “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” – Hebrews 10:25 NLT
