Here are opinions: * God isn't found in religion; he's found in knowledge understanding and tolerance. Religion is just there for control and profit. Pray to God and no one else. * God will accept you just the way you are, whether you choose to be a Lutheran, Episcopalian, Jehovah's Witness, Jewish, Catholic, or non-denominational. He'll accept you just as you are. Youjust need to accept Him through Jesus Christ (John 14:6). If you believe in God without hypocrisy and not from fear of punishment or expectation of rewards, then yes. Mark.7 [6] He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

I would call atheism counterculture, it is part of our culture to believe in a religion so not believing is against that cultural norm

No, however under certain circumstances I would say maybe. If you have a religion you identify with and feel spiritually connected to, then I would say stick with your own religion. If you are not a very religious person and adopting the religion of your significant other would allow you to get married or would allow their parents to accept the marriage, it might be a good idea. Provided that you feel somewhat connected to your guy's religion to begin with. If you convert and don't feel any connection to the religion you are converting to then that is disrespectful to the religion, the guy and yourself. Basically changing your religion for a guy is only a good idea if you are already leaning towards that religion and you are in a very serious relationship in which the guy or the guy's family would accept the relationship more if you made your devotion to the religion official.

Yes. If we could convince the entire world to believe in one religion there would be a lot less religious conflict. The problem is that this would be nearly impossible.
