  • I was raised Catholic all of my life, and continued to go to Catholic church for some of my adult life. Now, I just don't have the desire like I use to for the Catholic religion. It's just complete repetition and I think I believe in something a little more than that.

    Although, I am still a very strong Christian, I don't think Catholic is the way for me anymore...

  • I was brought up Catholic. My friend took me to an Assemblies of God Church and that is where I continue to go! I like the idea of just worshiping/praising our Lord!

  • Nope. I was raised Free Methodist and looked into Catholicism, JW, Mormonism, Islam and even Wicca before becoming an Atheist.

  • i was raised lds (mormon), and i'm still practicing. my parents don't really go anymore, nor do the rest of my family. i researched a lot of other religions, and i respect them, and i can find beauty in all of them. but i've chosen to still with the choice i made at baptism. i think it's healthy to check out other religions and find what works best for you.

  • I pretty much still believe in what I did before. Some aspects are different just because I understand more.

  • i certainly am - and i have never tried another religion - am very happy and comfortable with the one i was reared in - now, both of my sons don't actually practice any religion anymore- but they have remained with the religion in which they were reared - they are just not church goers - the church is just a building - God is in your heart - i don't believe that to be a Christian that you have to go to church every sunday - some of the biggest hypocrites go to church every sunday just so the minister will see them there....
