I was raised in an open household that was able to practice whichever religion they believed. For a while I went to a different church than my own mother and step-father.
Even though I was raised in a Christian environment I have since felt no pull to that belief any longer and I am now Atheist.
How have your beliefs changed from how you were raised or how you felt at a younger age?
Does my change make you worry about how your children may believe when they are older, since they may choose NOT to believe how you do or may choose not to believe at all?
I was raised in a Christian family. I was baptised as a baby, attended Sunday school and Vacation Bible School. I went through Confirmation classes and was confirmed when I was thirteen. I always questioned things though, and would ask my pastor questions during classes that he just couldn't answer to my satisfaction. I went through a highly religious phase when I was in my early twenties, but then just realized that I couldn't force myself to believe what I simply didn't believe. I'm agnostic, now, and am raising my girls to question things. I just told my older daughter today that I want her to think for herself, and believe what seems true to her, not to blindly follow what she's being told to believe.
