RE: New 16 yr old Atheist in a Christian Family
Back in middle school when I first started really questioning my faith, I'd always ask my mom questions about problems I found with Christianity and the Bible. She got defensive and eventually figured out I was, at the time, agnostic, though she didn't care. I might as well said I was joining the Cult of Satan Worshippers Who Hate Christians, Kick Puppies, and Punch Babies. That eventually turned me sort of back to Christianity and after a series of fortuitous incidents, I became a full Christian. Then a few months ago, I did some soul-searching and abandoned my religion altogether. No one knows, and my family won't know until they have to.
