I suspect a lot of people that go to church would rather be someplace else doing something else.
Many go out of a sense of obligation to loved ones who want to go. Others go for the sake of their children because they want them to have some exposure to religion during their formative years.
There are also those that go for the "entertainment" value. Maybe they love the choir/band, they're attracted to a fellow member, hoping to meet a "god fearing" man or woman, or simply for the social benefits. Sermons usually aren't the big draw for most people.
There are lots of folks who were out clubbing and fornicating on Friday/Saturday night that show up for church on Sunday morning. They have no plans to make any changes! For them if it's Sunday you go to church! If everyone bought into "Love thy neighbor as thyself" the world would be a better place. Few if any of us live it!
