this is piggy backing off an earlier question to non-Christians that basically asked if you'd ever been a Christian, did you understand it, and did you feel it? To those that answered yes.. and there were several.. what was it that made you leave. If you're a Christian who walked away and returned what made you walk away.
This is just info I'm curious about.. I know what made me walk away and I know what made me come back.... I've heard other people's stories and wanted to know some of your reasons... again please no bashing and be respectful of other peoples answers. Thanks.

I did, and I do understand what you feel. But as I learnt biology, physics, history etc the stories in the bible stopped making any sense to me, and I started seeing them as just stories, legends put together in one book, also as I observed and listened to people who believe in God I noticed that it makes them feel great but also thought that any god idea may have been created by people for people in order to handle hardships, to explain unknown but also use it on the naive ones to gain power, so I slowly became agnostic and then atheist. Those changes happened when I was a teenager, and then when I was in my 20' and was engaged I was really pressured by my future in-laws to go to church. It struck me then that they didn't care that I was smart, kind person who had so much to offer, they just wanted me to show up at the church for the service, the pressure from them was ridiculous. I broke up with the guy.
