This is a spin off question.
I noticed that a lot of you were talking about how you grew up in Christian families and then you left the faith. Can I ask what you parents were like? Did you feel they were too controlling, or hypocritical, or naive, closed minded, uneducated, weird.
Were they nice people that just don't get it, or get you?
How committed to the faith were they growing up. Were you Sunday Christians, or did you go twice a week or more to church? Did you have nightly devotions at home?
What was your church like? Did you like your youth groups? Did you have good teaching and good worship? Were you close to your leaders?
So many questions. Anyways, you get my point.
BTW: I am not making ANY judgements on your parents or your churches!!! I promise I am just super curious.

My parents are agnostic. So am I. My husband's father is a pastor and missionary. He is more of an atheist than agnostic. Saw too much of the ugly side of church culture. The lying, stealing, "do as I say, not as I do" stuff. His parents are Wesleyan
