    Going to church doesn't make you "holy" any more than going into a car wash makes you a car.

    I don't go. I went on both mother's and father's day, but other than that I don't go. I don't claim to be a good example of a Christian. But church's are full of people who have more money than me. I don't fit in. I don't guess I'd fit in even were I some upper middle class person.

    No.
    The spiritual life is one lived in the present NOW. All you have and will ever have is the Eternal Now; the Sacrament of the Present Moment... the Here and Now. There are people that I spoke to last week, who right now have gone to heaven. Others are in hospital.

    Every moment is the hour of God and Grace gives no warning. Take note of your birthday, and you will realise that there are some days, when you are infinitely happier than your birthday. Again, you may also be very happy on your birthday or even sad. There is no hard and fast rule.

    Grace is the same. What is always required is spiritual intensity ...practice...  readiness. If the field is prepared, then the harvest will come, or can come at any time. Monday, Tuesday ...Sunday or Saturday ... each moment is one to make progress. Prepare the field and allow our Lord to enter. He can enter at anytime and our role is to be always ready.

    Those who know, see the holy life as a 24-hr a day activity. We awake with God, walk with God, travel and work with God and sleep with God daily. Never, never isolate the divine. Much Love.

    I makes no difference wht day to go to church. Why have you heard its suppose to. If you are a person who follows christ the day doesn't matter. It's how you live and treat others thats important.

    Since there are so many religions/churches, each & every one with it's own often ridiculous rules & teachings, no doubt, since they all love to play "We're better than you," game, there are churches who actually claim the day of the week for church attendance matters.
    Ludicrous at it's worst, plain stupidity at best.  In fact, parking yourself in a pew any time says only a couple of things.....you think it makes you a better person because other people SEE you there....OR  you want to keep track of who goes to church and keep some sort of useless score.
    If your heart is in the right place and your intentions are pure, God knows this, right?  The day of the week is meaningless.  Most Preachers, rabbis and priests work on the week-ends to include services & sermons.  If that's your interest, go on the appropriate days for whatever church you choose.  Saturday or Sunday have no particular "Holiness" attached to them. If people have told you this.....shame on them for being silly! BTW....use your head.  Simple common sense.

      I was raised an SDA and of course they will tell you that the ten commandments are still in effect.  In a sense they are because if we truly love God and or neighbor then we will have no other gods or idols and we will not kill, steal, covet, etc..

      But they have been been fulfilled in Christ, including rest, which is what the Sabbath was all about.  Roman 14 and Colossians 2 hold the answer for any believer.  Peace!
