I did, I was born Jewish and then became a Christian in High School, I was really super religious for 4 1/2 years. Then gradually I started believing less and then one day just stopped.

baby, Do you know Jewish is the very closer and similar religion to Islam than Christianity?. We don't want to kill anyone. You may do your research with TRUSTABLE resources. Have a nice time.

There is a country called Guyana where the majority is hindu. From Hinduism they convert to Christianity after believing in one God. From Christianity they turn and convert into Islam because that makes even more sense lol. Im a Muslim and many times i dont feel like praying either, but this world is a prison for us and the Next life is The real Paradise. You always need to give sacrifices to be rewarded. Nothing Comes easy.

Sorry to butt in, but isn't that kind of sad? You're slaving in this world for the promise of a Paradise in the next, but you're doing it just to make sure that you won't end up in Hell. Isn't it better to make sacrifices out of the sincerity of your own heart rather than doing so because you want to go to Paradise? IMHO I think if that's the case it would be a sad way to worship God.

Well, I was raised Catholic, but we were never a really really religious family, in general. We went to church when we felt like it, and on holidays, but we often forgot. In CCD classes that I had to take from 1st through 8th grade at the nearby catholic school for an hour once a week, they made us read boring things and memorize boring things and shoved stuff down our throats. Then I went my seperate way after 8th grade when we had our "confirmation" which to me was really "get the hell out now" because really, I didn't get anything from the church or CCD. I would never fit in with the kids, and it wasn't any different at the CCD, which had mostly kids from my school, but the teacher often forgot to give me a paper, which made me feel all the more left out. I just never liked it there. I doubt most of the kids at CCD weren't like me and didn't believe in the religion either, I mean, it never seemed like it, though I know some do. It was just something that the adults would force us through to make us feel guilty, I think.
