1) Baptist. Not sure if there's any other specification to that....not Southern Baptist, just regular Christian Baptist
2)Not practicing any religion. Still go to the same church I grew up in for Christmas Eve services, that's about it.
3)I hated being forced to go; I always felt like my parents forced their religion on me. So, I pretty much abandoned it, and haven't felt any pressing need to replace it as of yet.
4)To be quite honest, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about religion. About a year and a half ago I had an experience that made me pause, and the person with who I shared this experience agreed that it was the one time we both stopped and thought "Wow, that was God" acting in our lives. But for the most part, religion seems like something that people 'need' to help them cope with life, to help them find answers, etc. I prefer to look within myself as opposed to a religion when I need to puzzle through things. I don't deny the possibility
of God. I don't claim to know God exists, I won't say that God doesn't exist. However, religion just isn't something that currently has a place in my life.
