The Lord deserves to be worshiped. If they are not saved but are in church worshiping Him, that is not wasting time. If they hear a sermon in church which preaches the word of God, that is not wasted time either. They are hearing the gospel at least.
As for me, I am constantly, almost on a daily basis or even several times a day, checking myself to see if my heart is in the right place. I want my time in church to be about the Lord, praising and worshiping Him. Sometimes Im distracted but I do attempt to put Him first. I want to put Him first in all things.
Church is not a road to salvation nor is it time wasting. There are many unsaved in the church too but what better place should they be in except church?

many peoples go to church always,at least every Sunday.Everybody claims to be a Christian and is a nice feeling.Biblically,the most high God is to be worshipped in truth and in spirit,but many peoples within themselves know that the will of God is not what they are after,if they are ask to judge themselves with the truth,they will confess that they are not of God but they are always in the house of God.are they wasting their time? or is the road to salvation?.I don't know but I belief that when Jesus comes,not all peoples in the church will go with him,apart from those going are the rest wasting their time in church?,I don't know but you know,are you wasting your time?.always busy in the church and physically you are praised,is it also in spirit and in truth?.brethren,is your presence in church time wasting or road to salvation?.
Were you thinking of this scripture when you posted?

Faith comes by hearing,hearing the Word of God & it is through our Faith in the knowledge of our Savior that we receive Gods Grace so church is not a waste of time,though none are Saved by their works ,efforts are not in vain.....what is in vain is 'going through the motions" neither in Faith or with an earnest heart,
Fez quoted Scripture that must be taken in context,,,,,,,this is not about worship being in vain,there is much more to it,I believe Fez was just asking if those were the Scriptures you were referring to?
