do you ever feel guilty about not being able to attend church if something 'crops up' / happens?

  • I feel guilty for not going sometimes I feel my son is missing out something important but he will not stay still and I know that

  • I don't feel guilty if there's a reason I couldn't make it but I do feel guilty if I miss because I just feel like sleeping in.

  • I do. But, I also know that God understands when I'm running a 102.5 fever, puking my guts up, and aching all over. I seriously doubt He would really want me going to church,and giving everyone there the flu. He knows I don't do that on purpose, or any other emergecies or unexpected situations that come up. He knows the difference between a genuine unexpected situation,and an excuse the enemy is feeding us.

  • Not guilty just missing out. I didnt go Christmas Day and that is the first time I missed in a year. I am so looking forward to it New Years Day. Its going to be an awesome time! Then again church is always awesome, it is never the same every single time which I love. Holy Spirit leads it every time which makes it even more fun!

  • I don't feel guilty as much as a little disappointed because I like going.

  • Im probably not a good one ot answer this since I rarely go unless I am 'down home' and even then I may not always go if my sugar levels arent doing good or arthritis bothers me too much however if everything is just going wrong so I want to skip church an dther eisnt any real issues Then I try my best to force myself there even when it means I will walk in late, I had my LO in christian pre school just cause I know I dont keep a reg. routine in church but wanted him to have more access.
    I would feel bad if, I skipped out so I could do something else such as 'worldly fun'.

  • Nope. Attending doesn't make you more faithful. You don't get points docked for missing church.

  • I don't feel guilty. I don't like missing church because it always makes me feel better when I go.
