Am i a bad person for disliking religion?
My mom makes us go to church every Sunday. Its such a bore to me because I strongly believe in science and it just doesn't add up when you compare it to evolution, how are we supposed to believe everything was conjured up where as evolution has a background and shows evidence. Anyways I despise going and I was wondering if that was a bad thing because my grandparents are also religious too. But on the other hand my dad soes not go to church with us because he shares the same views I do. I think I am old enough to make my own decision about this. I'm 14 and if someone says I am not old enough to make my own decision then what about all that crap about trusting ? Also a lot of my friends are church goers and I feel left out about it but why should I give in too peer pressure about some lies. I also hate when people are constantly quoting the book of lies oopps I mean the bible. It gets annoying also when they let a church rule their lives, because isn't that like a totalitarian system of government?

(?) Am i a bad person for disliking religion?
(A) Evolution and science have not connected the dots of our existence as of yet, but boast of their efforts as if they possess the truth. They are like sportsman that claim results before the game is ended which turns out to be an act of folly rather then sound reason. Don't put all your money on the horse called 'science'. Though ministers of the bible may not have all the answers to your liking neither does science but the bible has proved itself to be historically accurate. Noah's ark is still on the mountains of Ararat. Science cannot explain how it got there, but we can. Even more so about UFOs, we do have the answers but there are those which seek for alternative answers.
Now concerning your behavior towards your parents. Until you have all the proof that 'science' is all the truth, it would be prudent to honor their requests to go to church. Think of it as exploratory religion.
Next, the word 'good' is misleading. When people weigh righteousness on their own scales they will always allow the imagination to confirm their efforts. God weighs 'good' on the scales of His Christ. Good to God means standing in His sanctification of Grace and measures us by the works of Faith in His covenant for true justification. I hope this helps you! Click on these videos and see truth from the 'other' side of heaven.

Talk to your dad and see if he will plead your case with your mother. At 14, you're still legally your parents' responsibility, however, you're also old enough to question, form your own opinions and expect reasonable responses ("because I said so" isn't really reasonable).
It is possible that the nature of your mother's beliefs means she "fears" for your "soul" if you don't follow some sort of religious path. That will be a very hard nut to crack. Good luck!
You can also show your mother and grandparents that you are a moral, upstanding member of society by your actions and words -- without going to church.

You need to get alone with God and read the Bible, such as the gospel of Mark and John, and ask Jesus to save you. Church is sppsd to be partly like going to a family gathering, but you need to be part of the family first, and without being born again then a real church will not hold much attraction.
What you do with Jesus reveals what you really love, and where you will spend eternity.
"And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." (John 3:19-21)

Most humans dislike evaluations that don't seem to be their possess, that is not anything new and I would not even name it that unsuitable. The crisis is atheist who take their hatred for faith on an obsessive stage and act aggressively on it.

its not wrong - just bide your time in church even if you don't believe in it.. its kind of like storytime when you were a kid. church isn't a bad thing - you get free food! if you don't stick up to your mom, you will just have to keep going.
otherwise, tell her how you feel. she probably will still make you go to church, but if you resist and bring your dad into it, you might be able to get out of going. either way just remember, make your own decisions, you have a good head on your shoulders so use it.

No, on the contrary. Most religions are intrinsically divisive and intolerant. They are often barbaric and unjust, like stoning to death non-believers or claiming they deserve eternal torture. You are likely a much more compassionate human if you are against such nonsense. You are definitely more rational if you can't accept such nonsense.

That doesn't make you a bad person. It makes you an intelligent one, who can think by his own head and make his own choices. You are old enough.

No, you aren't a bad person. Religion is the only bad thing here.

Not at all. Unless you pull a Stalin and kill all religious people.
