Church Collapse

News report:  Steeple of historic church plunges to the ground leaving massive hole in the roof. New London Mayor Michael Passero said at a news briefing Thursday that the circumstances of the collapse were extremely fortunate. Photos taken at the scene showed debris being contained to church property. There was no service being held at the time of the collapse. It could have been a much bigger disaster.  The cause of the collapse was not immediately known.

There is always a cause for the collapse of a church. The book of Revelation, chapters 2 to 3, gives us many reasons for the phenomenon happening. The apostle Paul addressed the danger on many occasions in the epistles he wrote.

Galatians 1:6 

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—

1 Timothy 3:15 

If I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth.

Give it some serious thought and consider the building you’re in.
