  • Not God but gave up on Religion many years ago.
  • as many times as the thought to stop breathing has crossed my mind.
  • Shamefully, I admit that when my family shunned me for being lovers with a woman and when Katrina tore up my town, I was in that mindset.
  • I used to get thoughts like that all the time when I was younger, but I don't get them anymore, now that I actually have gone through with giving up on God and religion.
  • I don't think it has ever crossed my mind. I know the truth, and though I have fought it and Him more than a few times, I know that I will always come back to my Savior.
  • Not once because to give up on God, you'd actually have to believe in him first and I never did, not even as a kid.
  • Ya know what? I don't think that's how it works. It is not an intellectual choice..you either believe or you don't. You don't decide to do one thing or the other. It doesn't come from the brain..it comes from the heart and soul.
  • somewhat agnostic in middle school and quit my religion at that time came back few years later never felt like giving up on God since then. religion...that always needs to be kept in moderation i guess but i love mine so we'll see what the future has for me
  • Not once.. though I've felt god just forgotten me many times :)
  • Once. When I was in college, I dated a young woman I met there. After about a month, I realized that in the end I was going to have to choose between her and God/religion. I am a hardcore Christian; furthermore, I cherish the souls of those I love. It would destroy me to know my companion was going to hell and there was nothing I could do about it. She was a Wiccan. Talk about a mismatch! I wrestled with it for nearly 2 months, seriously considering choosing her over my religion. Not because I didn't believe, mind you, but because she had me so ensnared that I didn't know if I could break loose in one piece, and wasn't sure I really wanted to. Finally, I had a dream one night about what life would be like if I chose her. I saw my remaining days (a living hell), and my days after death (a literal hell). Needless to say, I had the pants scared off of me, broke up the next evening, and have been back in the church since, without a second thought. Thought about leaving God/Religion? Once. Going to do so? NEVER! I've seen enough of hell for all eternity... literally!
  • Never. The thought of taking up god and/or religion has never crossed my mind
  • I gave up on the concept a long time ago and now no longer a believer. Good luck trying to convince me to come back.
  • Just once - and after some contemplation the revelation came - THERE IS NO GOD!
  • I gave up on religion, but not God.
  • I have had some major doubts once in my life.
  • many times, and I gave up on both
  • I went through a period in my life when I had doubts...serious doubts. I don't know if it can be called giving up, but it was temporary and I am glad that God never "gave up" on me. :-)
  • Religion and denominationalism, as it is practiced today, I gave up long ago but I can honestly say that thoughts of giving up on God have never crossed my mind since I became a Christian.
