Do you know anyone that says they believe in God just in case he's real? IE...they're not completely sure he exists, but they say he does just in case Heaven is real?
I don't think it's right to go against your own heart. Nothing wrong with being a heathen. We have snacks.
I think it is silly and definitely something I would not do. I refuse to live a lie. It ranks right up there with believing out of fear for me.

Thank you! That's exactly what I meant, believing out of fear. I couldn't think of the term though. That's what I did for years and years, I just believed because I was scared not to believe. I was lying to myself and I didn't like it. I feel a lot more free now that I'm following my own heart and not what people say I should follow.

Christians keep telling me that I NEED to go to church and I NEED to read the bible and I NEED to pray. Well I could do all those things but it would be empty because in my heart and mind I STILL wouldn't believe it. So why bother?

yeah.. my grandfather is one of them.. me no... if I don't believe I don't believe.. and that's that.. no use wasting my energy on the "just in case".. besides if I am wrong, then I'm wrong, but I'm not going to blame myself for it..I did what I wanted to do, and am having a good life.. not easy at times, but good.. so why care what comes after... sorry but if there is a God.. he's not anyone I want to worship anyways. Sounds too much like an egotistical, chauvinistic, jealous child.
