I Grew Up In a Christian Home

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 162 People

    I grew up in a home where we attended church.

    It was that way until I turned 11 y/o. My parents went through a spiritual experience when I was 11. When I was 13, I took my relationship more seriously. I haven't regretted it either. I have a personal relationship with Jesus.

    So happy the brainwash is gone.

    Christianity is complete bullshit. Christians are incredibly hypocritical. I hate Christianity. One of the biggest reasons that I hate it is because it shames people, particularly women, for sex which is ridiculous. Sex is natural. Everyone does it, but oh if you do it...

    Not Sure Anymore

    I was raised in a strict Pentecostal Church. It was all about the fear of going to hell. Whatever you did you could go to hell for doing it. And do not question the bible. That was a biggie!!!! I wondered as a 10 year old who Cain and Abel married since their parents were...

    One of the hardest things growing up SDA.
