I have been wondering about something. When you were a Christian, did you actually have a relationship with Jesus (or believe that you did)? Did you ever really hear His voice in your heart?
Please, everyone, I want people to be able to answer this without fear of being bashed or ridiculed. I'm just trying to understand how someone could truly know Him and then turn away.
It is not a matter of turning away from god or Jesus it is a matter of not being able to believe. I did at one point believe with my whole heart, but I use to believe in a lot of things. It just stopped making sense to me. I never once decided to turn my back on anything. I just stopped believing. To turn my back on god would mean I still believed in god. Does that make sense?

I was raised Catholic and am not so much atheist, more agnostic. No one (meaning the nuns and priests) could ever answer my questions. I was just told to believe, not question. Now I have my own beliefs and am spiritual, but not in the way of any one organized religion.
