    Do you regret to be a Christian? Why and why not?

    If you have deliberately chosen to follow Christ, I'm not sure why you would regret it. It might not be easy, but the fact that you have decided to be Christian implies that you believe what Christianity teaches is true. I suppose it might be possible to wish something else were true instead.... but if your desire is for truth and you believe that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life, then you cannot regret being a Christian.

    My Lord.  No, I have no regrets about being a Christian.  The why is simple, my Christian view allows me to reconcile the ugliness of this world without it taking over who I am.  That's the least spiritual answer that I can give.  Spiritually, my connection to God completes my being.  I am not just 300+ pounds of meat that thinks!  I don't have to reason from the perspective of what is good for my flesh.  I'm a spirit first, with Consciousness (a soul) that lives in flesh.  When I realize that there is a God that created me and he created this world for me, to take care of me and that he loves me, not much else matters.  So no, I don't have any regrets or reservations about being a Christian.

    I think Elder has said it very clearly.  I cannot deny the spirit that lives in me.  From the time I have "declared" myself to be a follower of Christ, it is beyond words to describe my confidence that has been given to me on how exactly I should conduct myself in this world.  I regret that I do not always stay focused as a "Christian" and follow the fruits of the spirit as I wish I could.  But I have NO regrets to answer the question.

    I can't imagine why someone would follow a religion and regret it.  I'm thinking anyone who would ask such a question is finally ready to grow up and have a serious look at their religion and realize it's all just superstition.

    I wont regret that very moment when I came into an intimate relationship with the Lord smile
    when He became a part of my life, I felt nothing is lacking.. . Indeed the Lord can make the best music out of broken chords! This feeling of fulfillment and completeness in this falling world of ours is what every person needs, for a life lived for Christ is the only life lived without regrets

    Every person must find their own way to God. I love being a Christian, the principles of Christian living has made my life one of peace. I find joy in simple things and peace with God, in the midst of trouble. I came to Christ by faith and worship him by faith. So many good things have happen in my life, that I know God had a hand in it all. Belief is what makes the difference, between believers and non believers. Want to see a change in ones life, first, you must believe that he is and he is a rewarder of those that seek him, this is scripture, and what I base my walk with Christ on everyday. I believe!

    i'm not a christian but i doubt you will get many honest answers on this question. christians tend to hide behind the viel of faith yet act no different and many times a lot worse then others. if a person was a true christian in their beliefs, they wouldn't sin every day regardless of the silly thing they call freedom of choice. this is just another reason i find religion in general to be so off-the-wall.
