My husband claims to be Christian. He doesn't attend church or anything and belives in things that most Christians don't. Like faries and such... But, he claims a christian faith because he says he is afraid not to be Christian. He's afraid to be wrong... I am Pagan, and proud of that. I don't have any problem not being Christian and hold no fear in the matter...
My question is, is it better to claim to be Christian out of fear or to just be honest and deny Christianity altogether?
To thine own self be true.

I agree with Beeky and jennijune.
DH would never admit his fear to NOT be Christian. He will always be Christian because of his upbringing. He also has a fear of standing up for himself against his family especially when it comes to religious stuff. That being said, It is way better to be yourself than to be something just because you think you have to be.

Fear is a powerful weapon that people tend to use in all manners to achieve their point of view and it doesn't always mean in religion..
Living in Fear of something is so not right...
