I am curious to know, among the people that are believers, how often do you exercise your faith ? yearly ? monthly ? weekly ? daily ?

Not regularly. I do sometimes get the urge to go to communion though. I'd say 4-5 times per year.

I used to regularly until about 2 years ago.

Then we had our first child and it's absolutely impossible to go to church with her. I spent the last two Christmas and Easter Masses standing outside entertaining our daughter.

Also, the hypocrisy and fraud being perpetuated by the Catholic Church w/r/t peadophillia has really bothered both me and my wife. We're not sure that we can support a church (as an institution) that is as corrupt as it is being shown to be.

I see another REFORMATION coming.

I am Lutheran, my wife Catholic. We attend mass once a month, maybe and usually attend at Easter and Christmas.

At the Lutheran Church I used to attend, there was so much judging of people, that I have really fell away from any "church" activities.

Even with all that has gone on with the Catholic church, I have enjoyed the masses with my wife!

Rgds,

Greg

I am a Methodist and attend Church every Wednesday (as a junior high youth leader) and Sunday (two services). I am a member of both Sunday morning praise teams and go to church Tuesday/Thursday nights and Saturday morning to practice for them. Occasionally, I go to the Saturday night services as well. All in all I come out to about 10-12 hours at Church a week!

As a traditional Jew I try to go to Synagogue every Sabbath and on the holidays. The ceremony itself is different than on the weekdays, especially on the holidays. Each holiday has it's own traditions.

Happy Jewish New Year!!!  Big thumbs up

As a Roman Catholic, I go to church almost every Sunday.

However, just to raise a protest, saying one does not go to Church because of the hypocrisy of the peadophilia case would be the same as saying one's kid won't go to school anymore because there are paedophiliac teachers out there. Those affairs are terrible things, but to generalise it to the whole Catholic Church is another terrible thing.

Roman. I attend mass on the average of three times per week. But I am still a miserable sinner.

I have never been to a place of worship in my life, except for the time I went into a buddhist temple, which was really a cool experience. If there was a Buddhist temple in Palau, Id go all the time.

Keep in mind that many holy-rollers go to church for social reasons instead of spiritual reasons.  Big grin
Some go to church to find out and enjoy the virtues of chior girls. Big grin

I was raised Catholic but I don't go to mass/church anymore.

I am a Roman Catholic and I refuse to "go to church" unless I'm there for someone else (i.e. wedding, baptism, etc.,)

Reasons:
1. My "priest" has a daughter.
2. My "priest" always complains about the lack of contributions (spent $140,00 fixing a pipe organ).
3. My "priest" refuses to let anyone else have a say in anything the church community does or does not.
4. My "priest" has the audacity to stand up there and protest gays and sex out of wedlock and he has daughter and grandchildren.
5. My "priest" expects free everything, everywhere he goes.
6. And on, and on, and on.

No thank you... I'll pray at home.

I did go to church a few years ago to see a concert by Phil Keaggy. He is an amazing guitarist and song writer. I judge him by his music and not his sappy Christian lyrics.



Let's not turn this into a 'bash the Catholics' thread. They have there problems and all but let's not forget about the atrocities of the Protestants, Southern Baptist, Jews, Mormons and others.
Every religion has blood on there hands, kind of like most governments.

Good thing there is separation of church and state. Both are so damn corrupt!  Pissed

I don't need to be Jewish to see the atrocities against the Palestinians and leeching or our tax dollars to pay for it.  Insane

No one is talking about religious beliefs... we're talking about CHURCH. The physical building we walk into and pray. The only other church other then my local catholic church I've been to was a Greek Orthodox church and the whole thing was in Greek so I understood nothing.

When I first went to the church I now call home it was to hear Samford's wind ensemble play a concert. They were good, too...

I went and did everything FBC offered: Sunday morning church (traditional singing), youth choir in the afternoon, church sunday night, Wednesday night youth worship (modern). Plus the extra things like leadership team, drama team, mission trips, Judgement House production, etc.

Now at school I'm lucky if I manage to drag myself to church on Sunday mornings, especially after 8:00 PM ballgames that don't get over till practically midnight (for a bandmember, at least).
