I Don't Share Their Religion.

I was born in the Church of Christ.

I've always been surrounded by people of the Christian faith.

 My family is Christian.

They assume I am. But I'm not. I've been agnostic for a while now.

 My mom keeps giving me these life lessons and telling me what "God wants for me" and telling me to "ask God" what to do and such. It's just starting to get a bit tired. Sometimes I just want to scream: "I don't know Him!"

 Growing up, Christianity was pushed on me, and I don't want to knock the religion, but I've always been skeptical of it. Ever since I could remember. I just started noticing things that didn't make since to me and seeing things that didn't sit right with me. I gradually stepped away from the Faith.

I haven't told anyone in my family yet.

I still go to church with them and all, but I'm not who they think I am.

tell me about it !<br />

i feel for you :(

I think I'm agnostic too...but I don't think about it. I don't resist my religious upbringing. I've just stopped being so anxiety-ridden about sins and hell. So I'm at peace and that's what's important right? :)

Would there be a problem if you told them about how you feel?
