Christian here.

Yes, my mom, grandmother and I share pretty much the same beliefs. My g-ma is dead now, but she helped instill and teach those beliefs.

I've done a bit of reading about them.  No heavy study.

 

Yes, I've had questions and doubts, but they've always been cleared up one way or another.

 

Yes, I have felt guilt about it.  God is a loving God, and is glad to show me back to the truth, and away from the guilt.

 

No, not afraid.  I just don't care to fill my mind/head/heart with untruths.  Time is short, why waste it on things that don't encourage and edify my faith?

I'm not a Christian or an Athiest.....I'm Jewish - but I'll answer anyway.

1. No

2. Yes

3. In the past, yes - that's how I came to be where I am.

4. WAY BACK when I started my search, yes - but that was guilt brought on by relatives who didnt understand my questions.  I got over it when I realized that I needed to find what is right for me and where -I- belong.

5. Nope, because all study I have done (for or against Judaism) just makes me MORE certain that I am where I belong.

I don't know. We don't discuss religion.

Yes. A variety of christian based religions as well as wiccan, buddism, and atheism.

Yes. When I was a kid. I haven't committed to any particular set of beliefs since.

No.

No. I haven't decided on my religious beliefs, so I'm always interested in other religions. I just hate when people are pushy about it.

Do you have the same beliefs as your parents? Not anymore. I used to be a very devout Christian, like my mother, but I am now an Atheist. 

Have you ever studied (REALLY studied) other religions? Yes. I have visited other places of worship, asked lots of questions, and did my own research. 

Have you ever questioned your beliefs? I always question everything. 

Have you ever felt guilty for questioning your beliefs? Only when I was a Christian. 

Are you afraid of exploring material that could cause you to be uncertain of your beliefs? Nope. If any evidence of any deity comes to light, I would not hesitate to study it.
