I don't think it is a sin, I've read the bible(new testament) and there's nothing written there to always go to church on sundays. In fact, Jesus told to that we should pray by our own, and try not to look like we are saints. Just pray as what He has told us to do, and that is by uttering the prayer of, "Our Father".

Hello raijin, isn't it included in the 10 commandments? "mangilin ka kung linggo at kung pistang pangilin'? so i believe now it's a sin. anyways, still what important is we believe in Him and we pray.

I don't think that it says it should be done on churches. The bible states that, when praying, do not be like hypocrites who loves to stand in the houses of worhip and street corners so that EVERYONE will see them. When praying, it is better to go inside our rooms and close the door,and pray to our Father, who is unseen. Which means, pray in private and we would all be rewarded..

for me, going to church and NOT listening to what is being preached IS the sin.

I always go to church every sunday, but lately i have not visited the church, but now I am going back, I dont want that God will be angry to me, in every stupid party or gimiks we are always present, but with the 1 hour that we have to give to God, why many of us cant give it to the Lord? maybe we are really very selfish.

Hello Jamian, amen to that! i admit i am guilty. i also believe a one hour for the Lord should be served. I just hope i could go back to my habit of going to mass every sunday.

yes i do go to mass every sunday, but like you i miss some. i can't say you are putting the word SIN there if you miss mass. i suggest you pray.. and ask god for forgiveness.
