Attendance in A Church Service

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

(Exodus 20:8-11, KJV)

Heard some time back.
In US, you can get a church membership status even if you attend church service once a month.

Such a discouragement.
What happened to obeying the 10 Commandments: thou shalt keep the Sabbath holy?

There are those who claim they are Christians and yet they seem to have no time to even attend church service once a week.
For whatever reason they cannot attend.

Surely it is understandable if they cannot attend church service once in a while.
Thank God for the online service which they can watch when they cannot attend.
However, online service is not replacement for a real attendance in a church service.

In the Old Testament, the Israelites were strict in obeying Sabbath.
Shall we, as New Testament saints, not do any better than they did?
