I've found a few people who think this. I was raised pentecostal. You know, in a speaking in tongues, hellfire and brimstone, happy go lucky running around in the church screaming hymns-type church. Even though I was raised to be a good little Christian, I decided to carve out my own path and become an agnostic atheist.
Some people seem to think that I never believed in God to begin with. Truth is, I believed just as hard as the next person until just recently. But after 19 years of nobody speaking back, and never having a prayer answered, I came to my own conclusions and followed my heart.
So how could anyone tell a non-believer that was raised Christian that they never believed to begin with? I don't understand it.

Raised Mormon and Christian...I have never ever in my life believed in God. My mother told me its because God knew i could make it on my own so he left me alone lol. My husband says I'm a Satanist..IM FAAAAR from that lol. I just dont choose religion,I dont see ANY good from it... You found your own path and that's all that matters..

I don't believe that at all. a person's experiences are not void because someone else said so. if a person says that they accepted Christ, then you believe them, no one knows another's heart. but what i do know from personal experience (meaning me) is once I asked him in, he didn't leave, even when i couldn't possibly believe he was there, he stayed to bring me back (and when he did~my new experience surpasses all my childhood ones that may have caused some confusion:)
