Raised Roman Catholic. After much research I found out the real story of religion. I have no use for it. I am however a born again Christian.

There's an old thread about this very same subject, but whatever,
it's probably been a year since it had any responses.
My fathers side is Mormon, my mothers side is ChristioCatholic.
I was raised in a Secular Christian environment.
I was christian up until 6, at which point I started partially believing
in the old Greek gods.
By 11 I was Aetheist , and continued to be a pure Aetheist up until
I was 15, from which point I becaeme Buddhist-Aetheist.
When I was 16 I started thinking about the basics of Theranism.
I am currently Theran-Agnostic.

Parents are both LDS/Mormon. All five of my siblings are also devout Mormons. I'm expected to go on a mission at this point, but I'm considering leaving the church because I'm not certain the Book of Mormon is true or that Joseph Smith is a prophet. "Moroni's promise" didn't work in my case. I've read the book a few times, and have prayed for years to know the truth, and despite all the amazing experiences I've had, I've never received a clear answer on this particular subject. I don't see why I ought to associate myself with the church if God isn't particular about which Christian denomination I follow. For that reason, I choose no denomination for the moment because I haven't found any that have all the attributes I seek in a religion. Besides that, I don't think Christ's church will be restored to the earth until he returns anyway. I continue to believe in God, Christ, and the holy spirit.

Was your change of religions due to "thinking for yourself" or "thinking like others", or both? Was your change into agnosticism or atheism due to "thinking for yourself" or "thinking like others", or both?
Or have you changed into agnosticism or atheism?
Which religion is/was your parents? My Father has always been Roman Catholic. My mother as an adult converted to Roman Catholicism from the Methodist Church.
I was born into Roman Catholicism and reconverted into Roman Catholicism after a 6 year period of rebellion 11-17 years ago. I do not support all of the principles of the Roman Catholic Church, but after research into all of the major religions of the world, I have discovered that it is a Great Religion.
