    I've always been raised Christian but then as I got older I started not to believe in god and now at 12 I don't believe in god

    If they don't tolerate me, I will still tolerate them. We are taught to pay a bad deed with a good deed, and that's in The Bible also.

    Born in a born-again Christian crib. Raised as a born-again Christian. Live life as a born-again Christian. I am a born-again Christian, will forever be a born-again Christian and I will die as a born-again Christian. Our cover is called Palabra Miel, and we have an Apostol called Apostol Gaspar Sapalu. Dont mess with him in any way, I simply warn you. Search these things if you are hesitant.Songs we sing in Spanish are there, too. Irrelevant but I felt the need to speak out. I'll go back to remaining silent, and being the most hated born-again Christian here...

    My parents used to teach me that I should believe in astrology and the constellations when I was younger, but now we're Christians and I believe in God/Jesus.

    Good one, Pirate Le1F (;

    There seem to be mostly Christians, agnostics, and atheists here. Then again, Christianity has tons of different branches.

    I don't know if you'll ever see this, but I hope you aren't too discouraged by your parents. If you're still a kid, it's important to respect them of course and listen to what they have to say, but in the end you can make your own decisions. Don't be too sad, okay?

    I was raised as a revolutionary. I currently am one. However, I am not the type that treats people like crap. I am Muslim by heart and I was raised Muslim as well. I have Christian family so I see both sides of the equation. I was raised with treat others as you want to be treated. I stand for what I believe, but I do not force my beliefs on others. That's how I was raised

    Being Pentecostal is Christianity. We believe in well. For girls. No makeup, no pants just modest skirts and shirts, no cleavage, no cutting or dying your hair or extensions. For both genders. No sex before marriage, no swearing or curse words, only christan music, no vulgar dancing, no shorts or tanks for the guys they wear pants and shirts that cover. No we do not handle snakes (just to put that out there) it's a lot to take in. But we're not judgemental, or rude. If you go to church we're glad but if you don't wanna follow the guide line we totally understand. It's always easier for the ones who were raised in it but the only reason I was is because my dad is the pastor

    I was raised Christian, and for a great portion of my life I just went along with it because that's what my parents said. But when I got older (around 12), I started to realize that my mom was a really hateful, hypocritical person who thought she was so much better than everyone else. Plus everything she told me was so evil and horrible (like the Internet or message boards or emails or movies), I discovered really were not the terrible things she had made them out to be, and what was more, she did the same things herself without a second thought. I'm not saying that all "Christians" are that way, but she really ruined it for me. So yeah.

    I was raised Catholic and sent to a Catholic school (both elementary and high school). I stand by the statement that the best way to make an atheist is to send them to Catholic high school.

    I was raised by a Christian mother. We celebrated Easter, Christmas, and Thanksgiving and would pray before the Thanksgiving meals. She wasn't big on praying before every meal or church every Sunday. There were periods of time where we would go every Sunday and would stop after awhile. We go to church some Easters.
    I am an atheist. I'm 99% sure she's aware of that. I don't know what her opinion is because I never directly told her or asked.
    She's still in the process of trying to understand me in a lot of different aspects, and it'll take awhile.
