Why We Don’t Need Church Any Longer
by Jennifer L Risley
We are living in a fallen world, and this is the devil’s playground. Today’s churches, its leaders and members are not exempt. As 1 John 4:1 says, “do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
Author Jennifer L Risley encourages Christians and non-Christians to study the Bible on their own so they can see the truth of Jesus’ words for themselves. Although going to a Bible-believing Church is crucial for a new follower of Jesus Christ, this book proves that believing in God is different than having a relationship with Him. You don’t need a church to develop that relationship.
About the Author
The day after she turned twenty-six, Jennifer L Risley, a Christian, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Eighteen years later, Jennifer L Risley is married and raising two children. She spends most of her time in bed, no longer able to walk, her hands balled in tight fists and in constant pain. She wrote this book using her knuckles to type. Through prayer and faith, Jennifer trusts God in all aspects and stages of her life. She finds her strength in Philippians 4:13 and 2 Corinthians 12:7-10.
