    I still believe in god

    but not really religious. I guess you could say I'm spiritual. But I strongly dislike church and it's boring and they seem to make me feel like crap. So I stopped going when I turned 14.

    I used to go to church 3_times a week

    when I was a child. I still believe there's a God. But I enjoy living life the way I like. I have my own lifestyle and enjoy it with the woman I love. I already know right from wrong.

    First there will come a falling away.

    I think this is stated in the Bible. The context being what would happen before Christ returned. Perhaps the decline in church attendance is a sign of this.

    When I was living at home,

    i went to church with my parents and siblings regularly. Actually i have lost interest in attending church. Since I am married and have a few kids and expecting again with my daughter, I just do not have the time to attend.
