In my personal walk this revelation came some years ago that has been a comfort
to me inwardly, that church is a lot the same as going to school, we learn what we learn for a purpose to be able to read, and learn other basics, after we are finished with school we don't stay at the school but go out to get the experience of practicing what we were taught, which in my personal life was the school of hard knocks because my formal education was short and quick with 8th grade, however I am thankful of the view of life as it came to me, and appreciate the good that has come of it all.
Just because we don't stay in school and continue corporately in that manner any longer does not mean we have anything against schooling, I sent my 4 children to school, just because I am an adult and now a great grandparent does not mean I am saying school is not needed because I no longer attend school, school is where children receive the basics that they may need so when they become older and matured they are ready for meat, to face the challenges, adversity and loss without bitterness and successes without arrogance or boasting, this eventualy comes as we receive it in our own order some early in their day and some in the last hour.
I know School is about the natural learning and Church is supposed to be for spiritual fellowship and learning basics. That doesn't mean that children can't be home schooled, many children receive good educations and maybe better with home schoolng, and same with Church. I was not raised up in a church going family but I learned plenty about the gospel and the bible in gatherings in homes at times, sometimes in summer at a large park or at a wilderness retreat many would call it, really it was just an old farm house that people called home out on many acres, they were farmers, I became aware of spiritual things at a young age and it was a comforting feeling even during my childhood when times were tougher on grown up family folks than us kids and I was aware of that, the effects of the great depression here were not recovered from really until after world war two was over, no one we knew even had enough money to completely use up the monthly ration stamps aloted let alone buy anything else outside of basic needs and we were thankful we had that much, some of us without receiving much milk had to learn to trust in God and eat the spiritual meat at some early ages.
