First I want to mention that overall in society not too many people actually go to church. In Canada I've heard the average is about 80 percent do not go and 20 percent do. I'm sure the average changes throughout North America depending on the geographic location. Bible belt areas have higher attendance rates than others.
Here is an interesting sickness. Of those that do attend church, many just can't make it out on a regular basis. They are too tired on Sunday morning, perhaps they are feeling a bit sick, or perhaps it is just too much trouble. Now the interesting point is most people can easily get up for work during the week. Myself I get into work around 8am each day. Showing up for Sunday School and the main service on Sunday is very easy. I can easily make it for 10 am....a full 2 hours later than I arrive at work!
So why do so many people that call themselves 'Christian' have such a trouble in getting out to church? Maybe they go to a dead church? That is possible and they feel the cure is simply not to attend. Instead of that solution, I suggest they search out and find a good Bible believing church to learn and grow. For those who are simply too tired, it is a very real problem. I think maybe they don't love the Lord or love learning from His Word very much. If a person can get up for work but has great trouble in getting up to go learn about God's Word and fellowship with believers in Church, then I think it is a love problem. Perhaps they are backslidden or simply not interesting in the things of God? ... think about it....
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Find a good Bible believing church where the Word of God is taught and where you can faithfully grow and mature in Christ. Once found, attend regularly and faithfully.
