  • I have changed religions before. If you have a religious family like mine, it is not a easy thing to do, but I believe in doing what I feel is right. Just have to have faith in what you decide on.

  • Nothing would stop me. I am my own free person, I am free to be and do what I want to do. I have been Catholic, Baptist, and am married to a Muslim. I love to learn all I can about new religions and would gladly welcome change. After all, when it comes down to it, we are all the same.

  • For me by the time im convinced that the new religion is better i would convert, because i would no longer believe the same things. It will take myself to convince me, so no i would not be scared.

    Now, if im second guessing myself and have questions about my own religion and/or the new one i would consider asking others in that field for clarification. (sometimes neutral parties are pref. like college prof that teach about religion, etc.)

  • I would not....theres no way something else other than christianity could draw me away from god. Im not a perfect christian, but in this religion I at least know that God is always on my side......IF for some reason I did change though I would be very scard....scared that God is sending me to a place filled with fire to burn for eternity.....GOD BLESS

  • You can learn a lot from other religions and I have gone to other churches. But I could never convert. I was Baptized a Catholic and will die as one.
    Some people think the grass is greener in another religion. Sometime we just get bored of the same old thing.

  • I was a Christian and I did convert. No I was not afraid. The only thing that frightened me were the jerks in my little town that believed Christianity was the only way. But I have always felt a pull towards my path I just never knew that what I was feeling had a name. The only thing that kept me in Christianity for so long was fear. I got sick of it and followed what calmed my fears. Some call it evil, some call it witchery, I call it Pagan. I call it peaceful, I call it home.

  • well, i was Christian, and later found Wicca.. which taught me some very valuable things. Later I slowly realized the reason I didn't vibe well with either religion itself was because I didn't believe in a "higher power".. however i do value what each can teach as far as morals, and self fulfillment. So yes you can convert. If you would like to chat more you can PM me and I would be more than happy to talk to you about why I converted, and how it effected me and my life.

  • If you are a true Believer, you won't be drawn to a religion.


    If you are drawn, you didn't believe in the first place.


    Once you've been truly loved, you're no longer looking ...

  • I was born & raised Catholic, 12 years of Catholic school. In high school a few of us investigated Mormonism and while I was in Navy boot camp I was baptised LDS. I really thought That I had found what I was looking for but due to quite a few reasons I don't want to go into I left after a few years, One day I happened to accept an invitation to visit the church a friend had invited me to and after attending Calvary Assembly of God in Ridgecrest, CA for about a year, I accepted Jesus as my Lord & Savior June 6th 1991.
    I am a Christian. I go to fellowship with other Christans and praise & worship my Savior at churches of various denominations but as long as there is breath in my body I will always be a Christian.
    Those of you who are other relgions I pray you are as happy with your decision as I am with mine.
