Ok, to make an incredibly long story short, my husband was raised Christian. He does not believe in the Bible. A certain part of him dismisses the possibility of a God, but at the same time, he told me last night that part of him does believe in something. It was a conversation that we had never gotten so deep into, even after being together for almost 7 years. I learned a lot about him. I asked him if he had faith, and he said that he wants to, but he doesn't know HOW to. Basically, after talking for hours, here is where he stands.
He does gravitate towards believing in something, and he does pray. I finally got out of him, when I asked, "When you pray, do you feel like someone is listening?", the answer yes. He says he wishes he was like me, and had such strong faith in God. He definitely doesn't believe in organized religion, but I assured him that wasn't necessary to believe in God. I don't believe in one true religion.

There is nothing wrong with him questioning what he believes in. It's great that you can talk openly about it without criticizing or demeaning the other person. Faith is a journey we take for our whole life, and two people don't have to have the same exact belief about every aspect of God and religion.
