I have been struggleing with this my whole life. I'm not sure if I do or not. I want to. However I love and believe in science as well. I believe there is life elsewhere not just here on earth. My father was a christian (he has passed) and so is my mom. They always want to try to "save" me. Sometimes I get mad because I think they are trying to push their religon on me.
When I do go to church I cry and feel guilty and I always feel like our preacher is talking about me.
Anyway, I was just curious about how others came to their religon.

I have believed in God ever since I was a child. I have had many personal experiences where God has shown His love and faithfulness to me. I will never ever doubt His existence or His love.
It is not guilt you are feeling when you go to church, it is conviction. The Holy Spirit is drawing you to God, and you should follow. Guilt and condemnation comes from Satan, because he wants you to feel like you are not worthy to go to God. He wants to isolate you from God by making you feel as though you've been too bad for God to forgive you. God draws you gently to Him in order to restore and redeem. There is nothing too "bad" for God to forgive. Give Him a chance.

Nothing huge happened to make me believe in Some Powerful Force. I have always followed my heart, I feel that the path that is meant for me is there for me to find. I am open minded. Sometimes I feel certain that Something is helping and guiding me sometimes I think it's a happy illusion that makes life more enjoyable and at times more bearable. But, in the end I believe it is the journey that makes it all worth-while and what we do with our time here. I'm sorry to hear about your stuggles, just remember that the right thing for you will never make you feel guilty or judged. I'm certain you will find something that fits. I wish you the best.
