I have not changed religions as I was raised Christian and still am. I have however, changed my religious preferences a couple times. I was raised Methodist, but never found fulfillment. Later, as a 17-year-old, I committed my life to Jesus and was saved from attending a Pentecostal church. While on the mission field in the 1990's my perception of what constitutes a Christian changed dramatically as I witnesses committed Christians from a variety of denominations. Today, I am much less judgmental and accepting of various Christian viewpoints and work together with many different styles of churches.
