I am just asking this question because I used to go to church very regularly. I mean for Church on Sunday, Bible Study on Wednesday and any and all other events that took place both at the church and at the homes of the families that attended the service. I used to really enjoy this. It was long before I got married and gave birth to my son. I think some people didn't approve of some things that I did, or the man that I chose to marry and it became obvious that I was no longer welcome at that church. My husband and I eventually found another church that wewent to for a while but after what happened at the last church I can not get into it like I could before and I have stopped going. I know that you are going to say

I don't see how going to church every Sunday is going to make you or the next person better and more worthy of God. You can pray, read the bible and live your life according to God without going to church every Sunday or whatever day you go.

This is one of those things that really gets under my skin, not you but when people think you must attend church regularly to be a good Christian. I do not need a gathering of people to have a relationship with God. Just because I do not go to church every time the doors are open doesn't mean I don't read the bible, pray, and/or live a Christian lifestyle. My husband and I will sometimes watch the church services on television. But mostly, we do have bible time and talk about things with our son (he's only 2). When I was younger, I was at that church daily. If the doors were open, I was there. But I saw all of the horrible things that went on and it really bothered me. It isn't my place to judge those people or their Christianity. But I knew their actions were not something I wanted associated with me. You don't need a church to have a strong relationship with God. That's just my opinion.

You don't HAVE to go to church to be a "good" Christian, remember there are no acts that we can keep doing to earn favor with God(we can never do enough "good" things)Church is good for your faith though, the fellowship you experience there and learning and most importantly being still and worshiping the Lord. Do you feel better when you do go to church? Maybe you could pray about asking the Lord to help you with any issues your having with yourself or family?
