I Used to Be Christian Now I'm Agnostic

    So I recently got on this thing

    because yesterday for the first time, I realized 100% that I was agnostic. I grew up in a Christian family and currently a junior at a christian college. Though I love my college and it's opened my mind, I realized more and more that I don't believe in the Christian God...

    I'd say more on the deist/agnotic side.

    But the point is that I'm out of that mess called religion now. And I yes, I do kinda look down to some extent on believers in religions. Because belief in a religion implies a certain extent of misinformation to say the least, or ignoring established facts (which is even worse...

    Lukewarm... And Fine With It.

    I've only recently acknowledged what I've known to be true for a long time; I'm agnostic. I've struggled with my faith for as long as I can remember, but now I've stopped struggling. I've only told a select few people and I'm still "in the closet" in regards to most of my...

    I still pray every night in the hopes

    that someday somebody will answer me. But nobody ever does.

    The Cross To Bear!

    It has been about a year and a half now since I have de-converted from Christianity. I still feel even though I have internally embraced this new walk of life, that there is still a cross to bear with religion. I have a family of my own (my wife who is a Christian, and a two year...

    I begged and prayed all my life

    for God to be there for me and he just ignored me. I was constantly bullied and ridiculed at my private middle school. I thought entering high school would be a blessing but still it continued. My happiness never entered a high, it continued to stay at an all time low. In fact i...

    I'm still Christian but I have agnostic thoughts

    and views sometimes . At the end of the day the Big Bang is stupid every ancient civilization taught Creationism of some sort . There has to be some truth to it .

    Because seeing isn't believing.

    Believing is seeing.

    Broaden Your Mind

    I was raised a Christian and about at the age of 13 or 14 I started to think for myself. I changed my friends and my musical tastes (I started listening to more punk) and started to broaden my mind. And ever since then, I've been exponentially happier. I love not having that...

    I Feel Free And Brave

    I used to be a very religious christian for many reasons. First of all, it's because of my mother, she's a woman that can talk unceasingly about God, about churches... She affects me very much, she keeps telling me how God loves her, how God takes care of her, how God answers...

    Christian To Reality

    I was a pretty committed christian up until a year and a half ago - now I am agnostic. I was reading the bible one day until the question of what is truth came out of no where. At this point I could not just throw faith at this as I originally done in the past. This was much...

    Ive Always Been A Christian Until Recently; Its So Much Harder To Choose Not To Believe Than To Choose To Believe.

    Im seventeen years old. I was raised in the church. When I was nine my parents got divorced and my dad renounced his faith. My mom is still a christian. I started really listening to arguments against christianity when my brother became agnostic a couple years ago. I always...

    I Have No Idea How I Got Here

    After I had my son (@13 years ago) I started really thinking about the state of my life.  I realized that I had not, up until this point, living "right" (whatever that means!). Anyhow, I started going to church and got "born again" as a Christian in 1996...

    If I truly believed in a higher being

    why would I question it? Why would I want to? Questioning something that once was a big part of my life is exhausting. I don't reject the possibility of a higher being existing, however, I don't think it is right for me to continue to pretend that I agree with certain things...

    My Story

    I was raised in a Roman Catholic family by name only. My dad never did any of the things good Christians are supposed to do. When I was a teen, I dropped Catholicism and was just Christian for a while, and now I'm just an agnostic, but I lean more to believing in God. I never fit...

    Cotton Candy Anyone?

    I'm agnostic but I am not hard at all on discrediting religion or anything else for that matter for there are so many takes on any one given topic - hence the over 30,000 denominations in christianity alone. How can God be so absolute if we can pick and choose and make for us a...
