As an atheist or non Christian.Would it upset you if your child chose to believe in God?What if that child gets angry at you for keeping God's love from him/her,and they feel like you have lied to them their whole lives?(Could happen.) I have felt that way with my atheist parents. This is why I ask. What would you do?*Not intended for bashing or negativity*No offense in anyway.I do not presume to know what will happen. I am using my personal experience as a child to know what you would do.

Our gs is allowed to pick his own religious path (if any) when the time comes... I am not a Christian, my dh is so our gs gets a several veiws on different beliefs including of those who don't believe at all... it is going to be his choice and no matter the choice we will love, support and respect him for his decision...

My girls are 9 and 7, we've explained to them that different people believe different things. Our older daughter has told us she does not believe in god, it doesn't make sense to her. Our younger daughter told us she wants to believe in god. I told her she could if she wanted to and I'd help her learn about whatever she wanted to know. If she grows up and is angry with me, all I can tell her is that I did the best I could and taught her what I believed was the truth. My parents are catholic and raised me in the church. I think their beliefs are a little wacky and some of them scared me silly when I was a kid, but I'm not angry with them for teaching me what they believed. If you're angry with your parents, maybe there's more to it than just the religion thing.

Well I am nonChristian but I DO believe in God. I would not get upset at any religion my child chooses. As long as my daughter follows her heart, I will trust her ideas and beliefs are right for her.
I just have to say Alize, I know you are coming from how you were raised but I am and know plenty of adults that wished their parents would have done things differently and NOT raised them Christian. I have felt like I was denied reality due to being raised Christian. I have felt like it put such a negative twist on the real God and that is not a great scenario either. That is one of the reason I plan to raise my daughter open minded and balanced.
