This is me. I was raised Christian, I believe in the Christian God and the Bible, but I'm not overly religioius in that I don't attend church and I do/believe things that wouldn't really qualify me as a "good" Christian.
I technically practice the religion I was raised in but I am not religious.
Raised RCC- schooled in the faith for 16 years.
No longer practicing. Have studied other faith groups and have finally accepted that the Golden Rule works for me.
I am totally accepting of others' beliefs as long as those folks are not attempting to cram those beliefs down my throat. I will call out a hypocrite if needed and do NOT want individual faith groups inferring or co-mingling with government on any level.
I wasnt raised in a particular religion. I guess we were vaguely Christian but it wasnt something we discussed as a family. Became pagan in middle school and practiced that until about two years ago when I converted and was recieved into the Catholic Church. My family thinks i'm nuts :D
I do not practice the religion I was raised in, which is Pentecostal.
I am unsure of God's existence, which my understanding is more akin to being Agnostic.
I do believe that a man named Jesus Christ existed, lived and was a remarkable teacher and human being. I also believe he probably had a family of his own. Just makes sense to me.
I do not take the Bible as literal fact and see it more as symbolic and metaphoric.
Sooo...not sure what religion my beliefs fall under. lol
I'm not consciously religious. I was raised a lax Lutheran. My mother was not a fan of the church back then so spent a few months each year trying to find a fit for herself and us. I identified as Lutheran as that is the denomination of my family. I joined and regularly attended church in my early 20s.
I conciously left religion behind when I realized that depending on it was preventing me from taking a proactive role in turning my life around.
April 27 at 11:15 AMI was raised Catholic but now I'm an atheist.
I was raised without a religion(something my mom regrets). When I was 18 I started seeking spiritual fulfillment. I was repelled by mainstream religions save Buddhism. I soaked Buddhism up, went to group meditations, learning workshops, read every book on the subject I could find. I eventually was turned off by all the rituals.
Today I relate to Buddhist morality, but am otherwise completely turned off by religion. I am a deeply moral person without a faith.
