And honestly? It isn't the "faith" part most people take issue with. It's the way those faiths are sometimes acted upon, also known as "religion".
The way I see it, when you're on your death bed, which is inevitable for all of us, you're going to be alone. If you've been a good little Christian because you were told you had to, how secure are you going to be?
One of the reasons a lot of people can't go through with suicide or are afraid of death is because they're afraid of the unknown. They've been preached to all their lives about God, yet they're still unsure. Someone else's faith isn't going to help you
when you're facing your own mortality.
And Rhapsody, you're not alone. I too took from the Christian faith that we're all unworthy sinners that need to be forgiven and saved. I said screw that. I also think it's bullshit that you can be a rotten, lying cheating asshole all of your life but if you find Christ before you die you'll be saved and enter Heaven; but if you spend your life trying to be a good person but don't accept Christ you'll go to Hell. That's a pill I just can't swallow.
I'm not an Atheist though. I still believe in God, I just don't follow mainstream Christianity. I have faith and I'm very secure in it. I'm not going to go stand in front of a bus or anything, and I do have a will to live, but I'm not afraid. I did a little soul searching and came to my own conclusions rather than have someone else tell me what the truth is, and I'm happier for it.
