Do you go to church every Sunday?

I believe that faith in God (Father, son and Holy Spirit) and being part of a body of believers (church) is an essential part of a person's life. I was curious to see how many others fell that way and if not, Why not?

No, because I don't believe in the exsistance of a higher being/power. I think such belief is vitally important for many people, but essential for everyone it certainly is not. I find your choice of subject line interesting though, given your ultimate question. The two aren't always related. But if your faith of choice is helping you on this journey, I wish you well and hope for your success.

No. I haven't been to church in over 12 years and I don't intend to ever go back. I think that religion is an important cruch for some people to develop morality, but I think that it is decidely possible to transcend the need for structured religious teachings.

yes i go every sunday and feel bad for anyone who has not found a god of their own understanding.....better to believe in him and find out its not true than to not believe and find out it is!!!

My faith is very strong and I am also very spiritual. Having said that I decidely feel the opposite in church. I do not go there because i do not feel close to god there. I think it's wonderful for those that do, but it's not been a positive place for me.

Absolutely not - as child, the hypocrisy I saw every time I got dragged to church was confusing and disturbing. Even if I believed in a god, I wouldn't go to one.

These days I only enter churches for historical/sightseeing purposes.

I try and go to church most Sundays but it all depends on my schedule. I will be attending tomorrow. My church believes in all religions and there is no judgment there. It's completely different from the Baptist church I grew up in. My fundy family does not even consider this a Christian church but all that matters to me is that this church, and my own personal belief in God (as I see him/her) is my path, and no one else needs to choose this.

No, for many of the above reasons. Even though I was somewhat taught to question fath in my Catholic upbrining, in the end, you had to believe, OR ELSE. I have found no use in my life for fearing God. Also, I have found no use for people who attend church and are, in my opinion, not good people outside of the church. For example, I have known people who attend church every week, but they are outright racist.

I do believe in some sort of higher power outside of my control that ultimately decides my fate. I just don't call it God, and I don't assign a book of teachings or a set of rituals to my belief in it, and I don't need to attend a service with a congregation each week to solidfy or justify or verify my belief.

I'm Catholic. I go to church every Sunday. I believe what the Catholic Church teaches.
I agree that to be a Catholic, you *should* believe what the Church teaches - OR ELSE. ...or else, don't be a Catholic. There are plenty of other religions out there that may suit your opinions and desires.
