why do some people think that just because they go to church they are saved?

Unfortunately the words “sinner” and “hypocrite” are being confused. The confusion is one found between what one is and what one does. Sinner is the generic term of what “one is.” Scripture says all people are found in this category, both in and outside the Church. Everyone falls short of the perfection of God which makes them a sinner. Being a Hypocrite is specifically what one does. Since hypocrisy is a sin, we can say, All hypocrites are sinners. But not all sinners are hypocrites. Those who dislike the church and its explanation of mans predicament bring this confusion by the statement “The church is full of sinners so all sinners are hypocrites. Therefore the church is full of hypocrites.

That's just what some people believe I guess. I used to go to church all the time, at least 2 times a week. But ever since I moved away and started living with my boyfriend (which, they frown upon and even sent me a letter to hurry up and get married to him because I'm living in sin), I haven't gone. Would I like to go back to church? Yeah, but I don't want to be judged because I'm living with a boyfriend who I love very much and who loves me.

They're the same people who go to church on sunday and fire people on monday to double their bottom line.
by the time the meek inherit the earth....it'll be depleted.

Just going to church or accepting Jesus as our savior does not mean we are saved. Jesus himself said in Matthew 10:22 "he that has endured to the end is the one that will be saved." Also, James 2:26 says "faith without works is dead."

Not all believers think that. I have a strong bond with my Maker. I revere him, respect him & long to learn more about him. & I am not involved in any church or religion.
So, in my understanding some that go to church are Sunday Christians, they have a front they wear. others are sincere & know God in all his supremacy. Let God alone judge who is worthy & true enough to receive the reward of everlasting life.

Going to church by itself is not a bad thing. The Word says to gather together. It's the ones that go for show that give the rest of Christianity a bad name. If the service is about Jesus their hearts will change in time ,. most often.
