Q: Our son came home from college for Thanksgiving, and when we got ready to go to church, he said he wasn’t going because he didn’t believe in God any more. What’s happened to him? This has stunned us. — J. McK.
A: Many children raised in a Christian home rarely encounter differing world views (i.e., non-Christian). When they move out of that home, they often encounter others at work or school that have different beliefs and attitudes about life. Christianity (and other religions with a supernatural belief system) is based solely on myth and superstition and cannot withstand rational scrutiny. I am not surprised that your son had serious questions about the validity of his beliefs and decided to reject them. I hope that you will respect his new-found rationality. One way for you to do this would be to rationally analyze your own beliefs and the veracity of the Christian bible. You then may decide to join your son in rejecting supernatural beliefs.
