Yes. My faith and relationship with Jesus Christ is very important to me so I feel it's important to share with my son.

No. I grew up in a house where the answer to everything was "god made it that way". I absolutely hate the don't ask questions mentality it breeds. I won't do that to my child. I feel that talking to my child about god is like teaching him religion which I don't believe in. I want him to come to spirituality without the concept of rules and conditions that i feel religion hosts.

 Its ok. Some parents choose not to talk to their children about it cause they may not believe.

It's one in the same. I don't believe in that religion so why would I tell my kids about something I believe is false? Now my kids have asked as they got older why their friends believe in God... I just tell them everyone has a right to their own beliefs .
