    I was never a religious person to begin with.

    I only went for the big holidays. But I have now realized there was no god no savior to begin with. My grandma had Alzheimer's. My grandpa broke BOTH of his legs before he died and I certainly am not doing any better. World hunger is still a huge issue in third world...

    It Was God and Jesus. ...

    It was God and Jesus.  But it wasn't exactly them, it was organized religion altogether.  I had been going to church since I was around 3.  I got my baptism, communion, and confirmation.  I even had perfect attendance awards to prove that I was an avid church...

    I quit believing in God

    because my aunt told me that he would help you with whatever I needed. And everytime I prayed something bad would happen. He never helped me and I felt like he lied to us ad so I quit believing in God.

    I stopped believing in god

    because if there really was a god, a greater being that wanted to help us, would there really be this much pain in the world? Would millions of children be starving and abused? Would the most evil, low-lifed, scumbags on earth be the ones with the most money and power? No.
