The pandemic wasn't the first distraction to keep Christian's separated and out of church on Sunday.
There are plenty of other distractions that came first. Consider the following:
1970's had the TV
1980's had Computers
1990's had Video Games
2000's had Facebook
2010's had YouTube videos
2020's had a surge of "Social Media".
God's people have always socialized with "face-to-face" connections. Social media is a "screen-to-face" connection. The screen serves as the connection between one person and another.
What's ironic is: that's exactly what the TV, computers & video games prepped us for.
When the pandemic hit, people had already been "trained" for 50 years to sit in front of a screen and listen to what it says.
If you are sick, elderly, handicapped, or your boss requires you to work, that's a legitimate excuse to NOT visit the church-house on Sunday. If that's you, stay home! We have services online that you can watch through a screen.
But if you're distracted with (- fill_in_the_blank -), and that distraction keeps you from the church-house on Sunday and Mid-week services, why not give up the distraction and opt for something better: real, face-to-face, human interaction with your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
