  • I have gotten rid of my answer for obviously I had no right to voice my opinions.Gutless trolls ruin this site and center out certain members ,follow them,and downrate many of their answers because they don't like them for some reason.That is sad.If one believes in god or not is not a reason to downrate,and if one has an issue with it they should have the guts to leave a comment so it can be discussed.
  • Yes, and will always believe. I will also raise my children to believe.
  • No. My mother believed I had the right to choose for myself. She also said that it's not right to raise you to believe in someone else's view. When you are old enough you can form your own opinions.
  • Yes! My mom always took us to church and taught us about religion.
  • By my mom, yes, but dad was indifferent. As a kid he went to church three times a week as a child, so I guess he got "churched out".
  • Kinda. in a non forced way. We rarely went to church. But I was fully aware that my folks believe.
  • yes and i tuned athiest once I put the 2+2 together.
  • Yes, but I didn't like the dogma and nonsense I kept hearing about in churches, so I got involved in Biblical Research for about 8 years. So, now I'm a person with a spiritual awareness, but I'm not religious at all...
  • no - i was raised to make my own decisions
  • Yes. My mother made sure we attended church every Sunday and holiday.
  • Yes I was. And I still do, firmly.
  • I wasn't raised to believe in any sort of religion...any beliefs that i have now, i learned and formed on my own through growing up and my own surroundings
  • only by my mother... i come from a long line of ross atheists and by my own admission... may have changed some minds
  • At first we were, but it was 50 years ago this year that we stopped going to church and decided to remodel our house instead. ;)
  • yes but it wasn't forced upon me. it was something that was instilled in us in a peaceful and encouraging way. nothing became forced until i accidentally threw a sledghammer into the catholic family identity and became muslim. now i get dirty looks. i still believe in God, and i think my faith is stronger more than ever, but i've certainly pissed of a lot of people in my family
  • Yes, I still firmly belive in God and will pass my belives to my children as my parents did for me.
  • No, not actively. It was a non issue at best. Now as adults, I'm an atheist. My brother studied theology and is a religious minister.
  • i was raised after i believed in goldja... aka "it"
  • Yes. I don't profess any particular religion but I do still believe in a creator. I can't believe this universe is all an accident.
  • Yes & thank my parents for it.......
  • Yes I was and still am But I not longer believe in Christianity or that God exists.despite what my parents believe, I became Agnostic.
  • Nope. Atheist parents =]
  • Most certainly.
  • YES!!! and those people are the most Intolerant and Discriminants Ever! Mexico is full of those, wannabe Christians, full of sinners lol.
  • My family is Catholic and my mother insisted on dragging us to Church every Sunday. My dad hated it but he went anyways just to shut her up, or so he told me years later. She was pretty insistent on her by the book beliefs that she probably made up herself and always gave me moral lectures surrounding the subject, but when my parents were separated I stayed with my dad and never heard another word of it again. Later when I was in group homes they did the same that my mom did, but you could tell it was damn superficial and pretty much done out of duty and to keep a certain level of social admiration and acceptance since group homes are not always welcome in every neighbourhood. Still, most of the ones that I was in were Evangelists, ha ha go figure. I went camping with my dad once, and we were sitting by the camp fire, and since it was all nature and stuff, we started talking about Indians, and their god, the Grand Manitou. Anyways I went to sleep after but my dad stayed up, and the next day he told me that he prayed to this Manitou dude to forgive humanity for all the destruction we cause. Then he said that he remade his prayer; aw fuck it, don't forgive us, we don't deserve it. That stuck with me way more then all those recited religious speeches and condemnation that people always seemed to enjoy vomiting in my damn face all the time when I was younger and did something wrong.
  • Yes for a while, afterward i started studying this so called god, i believe. I had enought research to led me believe "God is not who you think he is" thats why i dont believe in god anymore
  • Not really. I mean, it was always present. Other family members went to church and my older sisters are strong believers of their different types of Christianity (One Lutheran, one Catholic, and one Baptist). I used to pray, as a child, but it always felt hollow to me. I never felt that sensation my sisters talked about, about being connected to something. I felt... like I was vulnerable and shivering in the cold and someone made a fire not far from me, but too far to give me any warmth, like they were just teasing their help. So, I wasn't exactly raised as a bible-thumper, but I had an idea of what God was and simply never felt it, though I still believe something is out there. Just something I can't exactly reach or understand.
  • yes i was brought up strict catholic. but as i got older i got my own beliefs.
  • I was raised hard catholic. Ha, got baptized etc, and now I can't believe they would get me baptized before I could even understand the process and actually have my own opinion, I would have rejected the offer, but been flattered. What I don't get is the fact that so many religions believe in God, but every bodies God is wrong except their own? If there is a creator, which has always dawned upon me as a very large possibility, I believe it is something far beyond what a human mind could perceive, and certainly something not thought upon this earth. I believe that is just selfish.
  • Yes, I still do, and I will raise my children to believe and trust in God.
  • I was baptized in the Armenian Apostolic church. I taught bible classes at age 12 to little kids. I sang in the church choir. Yes.
  • You're certainly raised (right up to heaven) if you sincerely believe in God. :) A slightly different angle, I know, but I hope it helps. And here's HQ 2:212 "The life of this world is alluring to those who reject faith, and they scoff at those who believe. But the righteous will be (raised) above them on the Day of Resurrection; for God bestows His abundance without measure on whom He will."
  • Yeah but common sense talked me out of it.
  • Yes, though all children naturally believe in God. I cling to Him, as I used to depend on my parents' undivided attention.
  • yes, I was taught to ask God for help in emergencies, and thank goodness, because I've had a lot of them.
  • yes... but i never actually believed until recently!
  • Yeah, didn't work though.
  • Yes. I still believe, too. Way too many bad things have happened that should have left me dead, bt I was protected.
  • no i wasn't. i'm an atheist. the only good school in my area was christian so i bussed out, and whenever religious seminars are held at my current school i am the first to get a note signed refusing to come.
  • Yes and talk about getting me out of situations seriously if I didn't let God take care of my problems (while I ask him to of course) but if I never got help, I really think I would be in some insane asylum right now. But he saved me from that While you ask for help, all your problems are some distant nightmare which is a freedom
  • Yes, until about 50 years ago when religion got replaced by remodeling our house. :p Then we basically went our own philosophical ways.
  • Yea, I think thats why I dont believe now.
  • Yes, but God wasn't talked about. One time at the age of 5, I asked "what is a Christian". Noone could answer. I found Christ at age 11, rather He found me. I wouldn't trade anything in this world for this.
  • I Was Not raised to Believe in God.. I didnt even know anything of him until I came into Adulthood and started venturing into Religion/Spirituality myself..Through Lots of Soul Searching and Spiritual Guidance.. I Do Believe in God !!
  • Yes, I do believe in God and pray in my mind. I do not see any point in visiting a place of worship.
  • yes thank u Jesus
  • Yes, but when I became an adult it was my own decision to continue believing.
  • Yes. The Creator of all, including the whackos. LOL My 2 cents.
  • yes but I wandered for many years and came back on my own 5 years ago
  • Yes, but i just went thru the motions in church . Came in the same way I went out. No real change in my life. Until later years later. I then went to church and just surrendered my heart to him, that is when I started to really live.
