Many people I know personally say that as children they felt forced to go to church.So when they were adults they chose not to pursue a religion on their own.Is this the case with you too?I am reading and trying to understand everyone.After a break I took earlier.I came to the conclusion that some were right on certain levels.Can we start over?I see you are passionate in your view's. As I am and I can RESPECT that.I am new here and now I see the error of my ways.Truly.

I don't FEEL like I was forced to attend "church" (really the Kingdom Hall), I WAS FORCED, even when my father, who was the only parent that imparted religious instruction, did not attend.

I was not 'forced' to go to church. I wanted to go because I was raised by passionate Christian parents. They were active in church and my mom taught me everything she believes as a Christian. I never resented it and never will resent going to church as a kid. My mom was the only non hypocritical Christian I ever met. I trusted every idea/concept instilled in me as a kid. I still trust a huge deal of it but as I became an adult and the real world became more apparent and I realized not everything is true in the Bible (IMO) and began to study different things to understand the world more, why we are here etc. I also have experienced church my whole life and know that it is a huge charade and feel God really has nothing to do with church(IMO), it is all man showing off.
I was defensive in your earlier posts but never upset or offended. I am glad you feel differently now!
