I was at a home prayer meeting last night and one of the people there commented that she was inviting some other people from her building to our church. These people have recently moved to the area and don't yet have a church. She figured that when she invited them she could let them know that they had nothing to lose in trying out a church.
It is true that attending a church anywhere in America is a low risk proposition. You probably won't be ostracized, you certainly won't be persecuted. While the risk is low, the potential reward is great- you can find God, discover meaning for your life, learn how to have your sins forgiven, gain eternal life, and you will probably also make some great friends. It sure seems to me that when you measure the risk versus reward, attending church just makes good sense.
