Why should I believe you over the Bible? Your version is self-serving.
He might at worst say "You don't wanna miss this!
Why can't I decide for myself what I want to miss?
There are just some events and communions that reality dictates can and should not be missed.
I fear that were you to define a God of your approval, He likely would be all laid back and simply say to people to show up if they wanted there were free loonies and toonies and lots of food but that they were entirely free to be otherwise engaged.
Why on earth would you "fear" that?
Your idea of God is that of an optional relationship and communion.
My idea of God is the same as my idea of unicorns. And "communion" with them is nonsense.
My idea is not that of an autocrat but rather of a concerned deity who knows that we need the inoculation His communion provides.
As I have pointed out before, that inoculation ain't workin' - which suggests that the "communion" ain't real.
