Where did christian benitez go?
If you are asking about the Ecuadorian soccer (football) star, he had gone to play for a team in Qatar only a few weeks ago, but he died suddenly on July 29, 2013, at the age of 27. Media sources say he died of heart failure, but there are questions as to whether he received medical treatment in a timely fashion when he first became ill.

Another answer from our community: Jesus words in Matthewchapter 24 help us to get the answer to that question. Notice in verse 9, speaking to his disciples he said,""Then peoplewill deliver YOU up to tribulation and will kill YOU, and YOU willbe objects of hatred by all the nations on account of my… name."There was a fullfillment of Jesus words in the first century onChristians living back then. But if you notice, Jesus also speaksof "the end," that is, the "last days." In verses 13 and 14 hesays,"But he that has endured to the end is the one that will besaved. And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in allthe inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then theend will come." In verses 21 and 22 he tells of a "Great Tribulation." He says,"forthen there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred sincethe world's beginning until now, no, nor will occur again. In fact,unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but onaccount of the chosen ones those days will be cut short." In this "Great Tribulation," Jesus says that it would be so badthat "unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved."The Great Tribulation is still in our future, since the world hasnever seen days that terrible yet. Also Jesus says at verses 29 and 30, "Immediately after thetribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moonwill not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, andthe powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of theSon of man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of theearth will beat themselves in lamentation, and they will see theSon of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and greatglory..." Those words of Jesus have not yet been fullfilled. Sothis Great Tribulation is still in the future. Jesus says that "onaccount of the chosen ones, those days would be cut short." It isappearant that the "chosen ones" would be present to be affected bythe tribulation. So yes, Christians will go through the GreatTribulation. ( Full Answer )

A lot of Christians go to church on Sunday. Some go Wednesday night. GOijg to church does not make you a Christian thou.
Pray, sing, learn about god etc.. They pray. They sing praise & worship songs. They receive Bible instruction through teaching by the pastor. They tithe. They fellowship with other Christians. They lift up the name of Jesus.. Answer . In addition to the above:. Firstly worship comes first . T…his involves praising God and thanking him for his love. It involves prayer, confessing what we have done wrong and receiving God's forgiveness. we sing - hymns, worship songs and other songs in praise or in prayer to god. Also, we hear the Bible read each time we meet, and explained, through a sermon or talk. At something called 'Holy Communion' ( a service held on some days) we re-enact Christ's last supper by breaking bread and drinking wine as a seal of his new covenant with us. In the bible jesus said 'do this to remember me' ...and so we do.. In addition to worship, we have fun! We meet for social occasions - coffee after each service, for social gatherings like coffee mornings, meals, concerts, talks (on any topic - not just Christian), for trips (like the theatre - block bookings are cheaper!) weekends away as a group of Christians, suppers, games evenings, sports, and so on. Great friendships have been made in Christian social gatherings.. We meet for study - for studying the Bible and what it means to be a Christian.. We meet for coourses introducing Christianity to others who are searching.. We serve a local community (the area served by ourchurch is on a run-down housing estate) through practical help, spiritual guidance and much prayer.. We raise funds - not only for our own use as a church like heating, lighting etc (we do not have any income from any other sources except our own giving and by raising funds) but also in order that we can help others. We pledge at least 10% of our Church income for charity - both here and abroad, although we usually give more. As an example one of the 17 charities we helped last year was to help train a nurse in Zambia for just over a year.. These are just a few of the activities in my own church.... who said that Christianity is boring?!. -JohnWelsh-. ( Full Answer )
Any Day apart from the sabbath day which many many people believe is on Sunday but is actually on Saturday so most Christians don't work on Sunday believing that its the sabbath day when its on Saturday.( in other words we shouldn't work on Saturdays)
Jerusalem is the one universal holy site in all of Chrisitianity. Every christian group, Mormons, Lutherans, Catholics, Orthodox Christians whoever, have holy sites for their specific sect (Salt Lake city for Mormons, Rome for Catholics, Mt Athos for Orthodox Christians) but every christian holds Je…rusalem as a holy site because it is the site of the begining of the christian faith, the crusifixion of Jesus Christ. Jesus was crusified on the mount in Jerusalem and it is this ultimate sacrafise and resurection which led to the original foundation of the faith. Pilgrimages to Jerusalem began soon after the crusifixion but were banned under the Roman Empire, a pagan kingdom. The Pilgramage of Helen, the mother of Roman Emperor Constantine marked the begining of a new Era, she constructed upon the claimed site of the crusifiction the Church of the Nativity, the oldest sanctified Church in Christendom. Her son made it legal to practice Christianity as well as the state religion of the Roman Empire. Christians going toJerusalem flourished while it was under Eastern cotroll of the Byzantines, they lost control to the Arabs from the south and thus the crusades begun. While Catholics controlled the Holy Land, knights guarded the pilgrims to Jerusalem, check points, rest stops, and holy sites along the way were all guarded and protected by the church and the Knights templar. Pilgrimages ceeded in the 1200's when the Muslims officially took back the city and Holy Land, thus catholics refused to return to the holy land Today pilgrimages for Islam, Christianity and Judaism are popular regions to visit the Tri-Holy City of Jerusalem. Because they want to walk in what they perceive to be the footsteps of Jesus. By visiting the places Jesus was said to have been they feel they can be closer to him. ( Full Answer )
It depends upon the denomination.. Roman Catholics place a great importance on relics and tombs of saints and so traditionally these places of burial or where relics are stored have become centres for pilgrimage.. These places would include The Vatican in Rome (graves of St Peter and St Paul), San…tiago de Compostella in Spain (St James), Lourdes in France (the site of a vision of Mary), Lisieux in France (grave of St Theresa), St Mark's Venice (grave of St Mark), Patmos (Greek island where St John was exiled) and so on.. In the Church of England, where saints play a lesser role, other places come to the fore as pilgrimage sites especially Canterbury (where Thomas Becket was martyred, and where the Church of England has its spiritual centtre).. The Holy Land of course is the focus for pilgrimage of all denominations, especially the place in Bethlehem designated as where Jesus was born (although there is no proof he was actually born on that very site in Bethlehem, only that he was born somewhere near there in Bethlehem), and the place designated to be the tomb where the resurrection took place outside Jerusalem (although, again, no one knows that actual tomb where this happened - so the one chosen acts as a sort of representation of the actual tomb).

Ever single person goes to heaven. What matters is what you did while on earth. That is what determines where you go in heaven.
Christians do not really have a specific religious pilgramidge but some christians do go to jerusalam to see the birth place of jesus
True christians who follow Jesus Christ are going to heaven as Jesus went to heaven. Hell is for those who reject the free salvation that was offered by the sacrificial death of Jesus by their life.

According to a 2008 survey, about 75% of Americans claim to belong to some Christian denomination. According to a 2007 Gallup survey in which people were asked how often they went to church, about 40% of the American population say they go to religious services almost every or every weekend. Studies… have shown that Americans tend to over-report their religious attendance, most likely as a way of showing patriotism or social conformity, which is a lot stronger in America than other industrialized nations. Another survey which more concretely calculated the average attendance of a number of congregations lowered the percentage to only about 20%. This means that Americans are a lot less religious than they claim to be. The numbers are a lot less in other industrialized nations. In Canada, Australia, and countries in Europe, such as the UK, less than 20% of the population may attend religious services every week. ( Full Answer )
it is important for Christians to go to church because it helps you get closer to GOD. Another response: Christians follow Jesus Christ who taught that He is present "when two or more gather together" and that the most important commandment is to love God and love each other. It is rather diffi…cult to love people without getting to know each other; in fact, since the beginning of Christianity, Christians have lived together in close communities. In our contemporary society, we attend church as one way to gather together to experience the presence of God among us, as well as to share life and love with one another. ( Full Answer )
Firstly, the use of "Mormon" is false and misrepresentative. As the name of the Church directly implies, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called "Mormons") ARE Christian, and attend weekly. Nevertheless, they are welcome to visit and participate with any other hou…se of worship, Christian or otherwise. However, church members are expected to be active in their congregations, attending their meetings and serving in their callings and responsibilities, as the Lord calls them by direct revelation through His properly authorized leaders. If you are a member of the Church, you should consider your Mormon congregation as "your church", although you might visit other Christian churches on occasion. You might want to discuss your specific situation with your Bishop or Branch President, especially if distance or family situation is a factor. When my family and I have been on camp or holiday some long distance from any meeting house, we have attended other faiths. When Joseph Smith was a lad, and the pure Gospel of Christ had not yet been restored to the earth, he attended the meetings of other Christian faiths "as often as occasion would permit".

christians have to go to church that jesus christ can deliver them and when you're a good christian you might get a HUDGE ! Present from the lord Thats not exactly how it works. You dont get to heaven just because you are 'good' or you go to church. Your heart has to be in it.
Yes that is the end result of Christian faith. A Christian is aperson who has put their faith in God. Their faith is that on theday when God judges all of creation God will be merciful to thembecause the Christian believes God has provided a way of salvationfrom His judgment through the death of Jes…us Christ. The Bible says who ever believes Jesus Christ is the son of God anddied as a sacrifice for sin will go to heaven/have eternal life.This is also what Jesus taught. Jesus said this: John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begottenSon, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but haveeverlasting life. Jesus also said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Fatherexcept through Me. - John 14:6 The Bible also says that salvation/ eternal life is not earned bypeople being good. Salvation is only by faith in God; Romans 3:10-12 ............... "There is no one who is righteous,no one who is wise or who worships God. All have turned away fromGod; they have all gone wrong; no one does what is right, not evenone. John 20:31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus isthe Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life inHis name. ( Full Answer )
I suppose, but the real question should be "why would they?"

No, the Illuminati no longer exists. The 'Illuminati', was founded by Adam Weishaupt, a Bavarian writer and scholar, to oppose superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to support women's education and gender equality. One of the goals of the Ill…uminati was the overthrow of an oppressive monarchy and the control of civil authorities by the Roman Catholic Church. They were very unsuccessful in their endeavor because that monarch, Karl Theodor, Duke of Bavaria and Prince-Elector of the Holy Roman Empire, successfully destroyed the organization and imprisoned their leadership, which ended the existence of the Illuminati. The only Illuminati that exists today is the invention of writers and bloggers who enjoy feeding the imaginations of paranoid and naive individuals. ( Full Answer )
Christian pilgrimage was first made to sites connected with the birth, life, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. Surviving descriptions of Christian pilgrimages to the Holy Land date from the 4th century, when pilgrimage was encouraged by church fathers like Saint Jerome. Pilgrimages also began t…o be made to Rome and other sites associated with the Apostles, Saints and Christian martyrs, as well as to places where there have been apparitions of the Virgin Mary. I don't think pilgramages are an important part of modern Christianity. In the Medieval Era, it was rather common for people to express their devotion by making a journey to one sacred site or another. However, I think most Christains today put more weight into the issue of omnipresence (i.e., god is everywhere) and so believe that all places are, in essense, equally holy. Rome, Campostela (Spain) and Canterbury (England) were among the most important destinations in the Medieval Era. When opportunities were available, people would try to make a more important pilgramage to Jerusalem. However, any place that was supposedly the site of a miracle or housed the relics of a saint (or more rarely, of Christ) could attract a steady flow of people. "The" pilgramage destination remains the "Holy Land" - which is essentially Israel. The main destination there is Jerusalem which is important not only as a center of Judaism but also is the location of "The Church of the Holy Sepulchre" - the place where Christ was supposed killed and buried. The second most important site is probably Bethlehem (in the West Bank) which is supposedly the place of Christ's birth. Denominations that believe in saint reverence - especially Catholicism - still hold places associated with saints as sacred. Many Catholics also try visit the Vatican, the seat of their faith. The second most important pilgramage destination for modern Catholics in Europe is Lourdes (France) which is supposedly the location of visions of Mary. The water from the springs there is considered especially sacred. Constantinople was the religious center of most Orthodox orders (especially Greek Orthodox), but since its conversion to Istanbul by the Turks in the 15th century, it has not been as important. Other Christain traditions maintain their own sites. Alexandria has been the seat of Coptic Christianity in Egypt for almost 2000 years - while the importance of monasteries throughout the rest of the country has largely declined. And Ethiopia has several important centers for itself as well - the greatest is perhaps Lalibela. I hope that helps. no offence but that is way too long nobody will read learn to write shorter sentences ( Full Answer )
Jerusalem has some significance for Christians as that is where Jesus was crucified but really it is just a city there is nothing holy or important about Jerusalem for Christians. There is nothing important about going there.
For Christians, Jerusalem represents a place of "reverence" due to the fact that it was the place where (i) Jesus Christ was born and (ii) where the Christian faith was born.. Note: Although Christian tradition states that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, it is only 10 kilometers (6 miles) from Jerus…alem. ( Full Answer )

Yes! Actually, some people go to church every Sunday and aren't real Christians. Those who read their Bible's and have a relationship with Christ are real Christians, not those who are religious.

The Bible says that people should not borrow or lend money at all, and that any transaction of that sort should be a gift by the willing party. So, no Christians are not supposed to go into debt (or, for that matter, use credit). However, in today's society, that's nearly impossible...
A true Christian cannot go to hell. Once a Christian has believed that Christ is God's son, and that He died for our sins, we forever have the gift of eternal life in heaven. Once you have asked Jesus into your heart, even if you go to another religion, you still have the eternal gift of life with C…hrist Jesus.

Non-Roman Catholic Answer A Catholic is certainly ABLE to go to a Christian church. How the Catholic church will feel about this is a different matter, and a careful perusal of the below will probably give you a clue. (Hint: it's the "the only Christian Church [...] is the Catholic Church" part.) … Roman Catholic Answer Catholics attend a Christian Church every time they go to Mass! The Catholic Church is Christian . Several protestant ecclesial communities, in their effort to establish that they are Christian, deny that word to Catholics. Any simple glance at history will show that the only Christian Church, which was established by Jesus Christ, and exists to this day, is the Catholic Church. from A Catholic Dictionary , edited by Donald Attwater, Second edition, revised 1957 . Christian A name first given to the followers of our Lord at Antioch (Acts xi, 26). Since the rise of Protestantism the name has been used in so many different senses as to have become almost meaningless: it may indicate a Catholic or a Unitarian, or even be applied to an infidel who displays some virtue which is associated with Christ. It may reasonably be applied to the members of all the ancient churches, whether in communion with the Holy See, or not, and to those Protestants who profess, explicitly or implicitly, the Nicaean creed in its traditional interpretation. The Church puts no definite official meaning on the word, as she does on Catholic. Christianity is the religion of, the body of faith and morals taught by, the Catholic Church of Christ. The word may be properly extended to include the religious systems of the dissident Eastern -churches and of some Protestant bodies. The current popular use of the word in an ethical, subjective sense, is to be deplored: it is stripping it of all objective or historical connotations. Catholic I. The word is derived from Greek and simply means universal. In combination with the word "church" it essentially merely indicates one of the marks of the Church, and was so used by St. Ignatius at the beginning of the 2 nd century; but in the course of history it has come to be the distinguishing epithet of the Church of Christ and his faith: under other circumstances its place might have been taken by "apostolic" or "one." The use of the word in this distinguishing way became current and common in England only from the middle of the 16 th century. In some mediaeval translations of the Creed unam sanctam catholicam et apostolicam ecclesiam is rendered "one holy apostolic church general." ii. A Catholic is any person who, having been baptized, does not adhere to a non-Catholic religion or perform any act with the intention or effect of excluding himself from the Church. A "good Catholic" is one who practises his religion to the best of his ability. iii. Catholics normally call themselves Catholics without qualification, and are distinguished by the name alike in West and East; except for a body of High Anglicans, no other Christians use the name as a distinguishing title. But Catholics of the Byzantine rite sometimes calls themselves Greek Catholics, Chaldeans are so called, and Maronites always refer to themselves simply as Maronites - they avoid the name Catholic for the good reason that there is no such thing as a Maronite who is not a Catholic, and because in Syria the epithet particularly designates a Catholic Melkite. iv. As an adjective, Catholic in this special sense should only be used of subjects of which Catholicity is predicable, e.g. , a man as man, a church, building, or catechism. To speak of a Catholic artist or grocer, Catholic poetry or truth is inaccurate and misleading: an artist or grocer who is a Catholic is a Catholic as a man (and this without reference to whether he paints only ecclesiastical pictures or supplies cheese only to the clergy); poetry may deal with a Catholic theme or be written by a poet who is a Catholic, but is not by that fact anything but poetry; truth is truth and it is improper to call the truth about the Catholic Church, Catholic truth; (cf., Catholic arithmetic, a Wesleyan judge, Quaker music, and, particularly, Catholic culture)..

Traditionally "going to church" is seen as a Sunday morning activity, but the church is not just a meeting/service once a week. The word "church" actually refers to the body of people, not the building they gather in or the service that they attend, so you cannot "go to church" because you are part …of the church, therefore you gather with the church. Many churches gather at various times during the week in small groups usually in the homes of members, for times of prayer, worship, bible study, or just a chance to catch up and be sociable.

No. That is a purely Catholic belief. Catholics believe that you must go through the priest to confess your sins because we are still separated from God.

In my opinion, they have a bath, put on nice attire, take their Bible, walk or drive to the location where the Church is at depending on the distance. They enter the Church through one of the entrances. Take their seat to await the Pastor, Bishop or CEO. The basket is taken around for collectio…ns, contributions and tithes - the Pastor, Bishop or CEO to Jesus Inc - must pay his bills and service his or her private jets - everything must be done to keep bums on the seats in Church venues. The Pastor, Bishop or CEO tells them which page, which chapter and verse he or she wants to lecture them on for that Sunday on the condition that - "no questions asked - if they ask questions their faith will be in jeopardy" At the end of the service everybody closes their Bible and goes home till next Sunday Answer : Christians - of all stripes - go to church services because God commands us to and because we follow Jesus' example. Approximately 6,000 years ago, God created the earth and everything in it: Exodus 20:11 New King James Version (NKJV) 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. Notice that God did something very special. He created the Sabbath on the seventh day by resting. God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day, blessing it for us to remember Him and His Creation. God did this because He loves us and knows, unlike the God Family, we humans need the Sabbath rest: Mark 2:27 New King James Version (NKJV). 27 And He said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. . We are commanded by God to "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy" (Exodus 20:8). It is so important to God that we keep the Sabbath, that He set an example for us-He rested on the seventh day. Christians go to church on the seventh day-the Sabbath-because God has commanded us to keep that day holy. Though there are many variations in the 'rainbow coalition of Christianity,' usually all membership dress appropriately, go to a central meeting place, and hold a service (varies among sects) where the Scripture is read and discussed. Some have a 'Communion or Eucharist' service daily, weekly, or annually. This is the 'holy convocation' God commanded all to do - every Sabbath or High Annual Sabbath days.. ( Full Answer )

Christians can worship anywhere, as it is a belief, and beliefs are everywhere. Though, often Christians would gather at a church as a focal worshipping area. In their own household each believer would worship their beliefs just as common as in a church.
