  • Jehovah's witness, it was the only religion that I researched that bought me peace and made me appreciate God and everything that he has blessed me with.

  • I'm Buddhist also. I've always held Buddhist beliefs - just didn't know that's what they were 'til my 20's. So, nothing "drew" me to it... it's just who I am.

  • I am a Christian and although my family has always been they encouraged me to look into different religions growing up. The more I would study about religions the more Christianity made sense. And when I say Christianity I don't mean the conservative fundamentalist version or the far left liberal version, I mean Christianity in the early church-what it is supposed to be. Not many people think about this but it is one of the biggest reasons I believe in Christianity-Christ was inclusive of women. In that time and culture that was unheard of yet there are lots of examples of this in the bible. If someone at that time were to "make up" a story the way Jesus treated women would be extremely looked down on-that's why I think it is true! The all encompassing love and the character of Christ is why I believe in Christianity.

  • Atheist because I don't believe in any supreme beings or an afterlife.

  • I'm Pagan
    I was not drawn to it. I was pushed from Christianity because of it. ...i was Pagan before i even understood or knew that there was anything else besides Christianity.

  • I'm a born again Christian. My grandmother was a Christian and I attended church as a young child but we stopped going when I was around 10. As a teenager I felt something was missing from my life. My grandmother was always urging us to go back to church. What I found there was people who loved me as goofy and awkward as I was, I was 14. They reflected the love of the God of the universe, who loved me enough to die on a cross to forgive my sins, and who was drawing me into a relationship with Him. A relationship with the God who created and sustains the universe! That God is interested in the details of my lfie. Who wouldn't want that? 30 years later and my faith in and my love for this God is stronger than ever.
