It is Scriptural to celebrate the Lord's death every day!

Acts 2v46: "So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart..." with Matt 18v20.

Merely stating that it is not biblical, without any evidence to support your assertion, is akin to presenting your opinion. Perhaps you should explain further.

You might also consider why people do think that attending Church every Sunday is biblical, and explain why their arguments are unbiblical, if indeed they are.

Further, I would encourage you to use the term "biblical" cautiously and with clarification. There are many things that are recorded in the Bible that are not condoned by the overall teaching of the Bible. For example, rape, adultery, and murder are all "biblical" in one sense--examples of each are recorded in Scripture.

There was one ecclesia (Church) in each city that they taught in.

Hebrews 10:25
Ignor it if you wish, but you cannot biblically justify not assembling.

Hebrew 10: 2525 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
This scripture is talking about some who do not take there rightful place in the Body of Christ. God has assembled everyone into there places at the beginning. Some forsake their place and do something else or get under another covering.

Where did you get this idea? It's certainly not from Hebrews 10 as that chapter says no such thing.

Private interpretation is also forbidden.

There is only one Church per city. All these local churches were formed to keep people from the knowledge of God. To keep them in infancy. Satan is very clever. He has succeeded.

I think you give too much credit to the enemy and too little to the Lord. That aside, I still don't see the connection with the OP.

That's a misread of Peter's words. That verse is about the origin of prophecy; that's it, that's all. It is not about interpreting Scripture.

There are many things we are to do on the first day of the week- assemble together, give to God, praise, worship, partake of the Lord's Supper, hear a portion of God's Word, fellowship, and pray together. God understands if you can't make it once in a while because you're sick or something. But purposely missing it just to miss it is forsaking the assembly- which is sin.

1 John 2:27 27As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit-just as it has taught you, remain in him.
No need for a local church the holy spirit will teach you.

"Do not forsake the assembly." That's a direct order from God.

You keep ignoring Scripture and offer excuses and private interpretation to try and justify yourself.
It is obvious that your isolating yourself from others has lead to much misunderstanding of Scripture.
