We all cannot assemble at your house to be taught God word for our spiritual growth due to the capacity of what the fire marshal permits. Therefore the need came about to build places of worship;
There is an intersection in North West Miami near the county line with Broward County were there are four churches at the four corners. Is it reasonable to think that there is a need for all four of these churches at that intersection. Oh, by the way, there are a few more just a few minutes walk from them. There is another stretch near the Palmetto Highway in North West Miami between 37th and 47th Avenue where almost every bay is a ministry. Is it reasonable to think that these are also needed to satisfy your suggestion above. It is widely known that these churches are only open a few hours on Sundays or Saturdays and closed for most of every week.
