Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 94 People

    I Used To "try" To Be A Christian...but Finally Dropped The Mask....

    I attended a Baptist church for almost 20 years. I had myself convinced I was a Christian. I watched the "right" shows, wore the "right" clothes, read the "right" books and etc etc etc. I struggled with "evil" thoughts (which was my brains way of letting off repressed desires,etc...

    Just Don't Need It

    As well as here, i am also a member of the 'I am an Athiest' group. The people there are (for the most part) intelligent, sensible, level-headed people. But one thing i have noticed is that they're all sooo  clued up about religion. Many people there have studied several...

    Best Decision Ever.

    I was brought up as a Christian; I went to a Christian primary and high school, went to church, read the bible, studied religion and so on. So from a young age, I was being brainwashed into this religion. I'm quite stubborn and I won't believe in anything until there is definite...

    Life Is On This Earth

    I don't feel the need to go on some kind of passionate rant about this topic, but I was so delighted to find it that I felt obliged to write something. I do not believe in the existence of a God or supreme being by any of the names people use to refer to such a thing. I believe...

    Happy

    I don't believe in God or any other higher being. I never have and sincerely doubt I ever will. I'm happy without God in my life as the title of this group states. I created this group after a conversation with someone on another site who made me realise I was happy without God...

    Consider The Alternative...

    I have definitely found that life is wonderful as an atheist. However, for me, there was a grieving period. I have spent almost my entire life carrying on an incessant conversation in my head (and as I have aged, even out loud) and for several years this conversation was directed...

    Happy Atheist

    I keep getting told by the religious that I can't know true happiness without their god in my life. Yet, somehow, I've managed to really enjoy many experiences that I've had up to this point and I've done it all without any help from their imaginary big brother in the sky. You...

    I Never Needed A Personal God

    Really, I didn't. In fact, it always was more about forcing and fear. Nothing I was taught in my strict, highly religious Baptist upbringing felt like it lined up with my reality. However, of course, I was a child, and terrified of defying authority, and, most of all, hell. It...

    For Some Reason, I Always Felt Bad With God In My Life

    I never believed in Him: If He was real, there would be no suffering. But since there is a lot of suffering, He isn't real. The stories are made up, fictional. God cannot hug you. I have been going to church off and on since I was little. I was not a Christian back then either. I...
