House of God

Additional Links

A name frequently given to the edifice in which Christians assemble for the worship of God, not because God dwells there by any visible or special presence, as of old he "dwelt between the cherubims," but because it is dedicated to God, and set apart for his service. It is thus synonymous with the word "church" in that modern use of it by which it signifies a building (Eden). (See BETHEL); (See HOUSE); (See TEMPLE).
