There is no I in church:

I love what Keith Drury writes in his book, "There is no I in church." Here's a great quote I found it in:

Individualism and heaven are incompatible...Heaven is not a place where your wildest dreams of personal fulfillment come true...These are pagan notions of heaven. Heaven is about becoming a people. Heaven will melt our stubborn individuality and merge us into a group - the Bride of Christ. It will be the Church that goes to heaven, not just a bunch of individual believers. That is why people who reject the church cannot e Christian. They won't melt. They won't join the bride. [There is no I in church, pg 16.]
