You do not have to go to church to be a believer of God or to have a relationship with him. You can worship and talk to him anytime or anyplace and be just as happy about yourself and happy with your life and not have to go to an organized place. I belive God will forgive and love you just as much as everyone else even if you dont revolve your life around going to a church or some type of organization. Church is a great place but just because you dont attend every single sunday and event doesn't mean your any worse of a person. Church to me is just a place to socialize and worship with fellow members, sometimes you need privacy when it comes to a serious talk with the man above.

My opponents proposition is " I believe that religion is about a relationship with god not about going to church every sunday.", where "I" speaks of him or her. Therfore, I must show that she does in fact believe that religion is about a relationship with god not about going to church every sunday.

To prove this, I will post her own opening argument as evidence that he/she does in fact believe such

"You do not have to go to church to be a believer of God or to have a relationship with him. You can worship and talk to him anytime or anyplace and be just as happy about yourself and happy with your life and not have to go to an organized place. I belive God will forgive and love you just as much as everyone else even if you dont revolve your life around going to a church or some type of organization.
