    Former Christians: Do you still believe in God?

    I'm doing research for a book I'm working on. After leaving Christianity, do you believe in God, or have you become an atheist or agnostic?

    No.  I considered myself agnostic for a long time but finally came to terms with being an athiest.

    I don't know what or who created the plane of existence in which our universe and parallel universes now reside, but I personally believe that the theology of historical Jesus was twisted by a con-artist named Paul of Tarsus in the first century AD.

    No. At this point, I couldn't. Not an ounce of evidence for it.

    Yes I do believe in God. I just no longer believe in organized religion. I don't believe in the so called God sitting upon his throne up in the clouds passing judgement on others but the "spirit" that is within all of us, and all living creatures on earth. Good question.....

    I used to attend church on a regular basis and yes I believed in God...but suddenly one day my faith was challenged and I realised that I didnt really believe at all...I believe in something but im not sure what ..the religious amongst you will say that I wont go to heaven for  not beleiving but I will IF what is written is true...GOD forgives all who truly repent !"! Therefore if there is a GOD when I reach the gates of heaven wether I beleive or not wont matter at all because as long as I say sorry for my sins and my disbelief I will be allowed into heaven !!
    Simpills !!

    Thanks for sharing everyone, this really helps me out. Personally, I still do believe in god, but the vengeful and jealous God described in the bible, however I can't blame anyone for not believing anymore!

    I still believe in God although i dont consider myself having left the religion as much as i consider it leaving the church.

    The study and practice of religion to me doesnt require attending church.

    A church can be built in your mind and practiced at home.

    I've never considered myself a Christian but I was raised Episcopalian. I was a Christian in name, not in soul. I am Pagan. Whereas many Pagans believe in multiple gods and one that is the sole creator, I simply believe in just one. I've always believed in God, though, and I've always held my own strong spiritual convictions. I think about God all of the time and I'm always trying to be true to my beliefs about the divine. It sounds sort of weird when I talk about it, but God is the only "person" I trust completely. I don't always trust myself to make the best decisions, but I trust God to never give me something I can't handle and to let me learn from my mistakes.

    I was rehabilitated from the bronze age doctrine and dogma some years ago. I held to the lie told to me by my parents that there was only one way.... their way, of course. All other religions were wrong but their's was right.

    When I arrived at the momentous understanding that I had the right to spiritual expression, in my own unique way, my life was changed radically and for the better. I ceased to believe the lies of the pretender Yahweh and instead began to cultivate my relationship to the real Divine Creator of No Name or Gender. And it has been the most magical period of my entire life. It has kept me enormously busy and I don't always like the lessons that are required to prepare me to fulfill my true role in this life. But I have far more days of blessings than the entire time I lived at home, under the boot of abusive Christianity.
