That sounds like a lot of family history struggling with religion. My advice to you and Fiance is to find what works for you, what you believe in, etc. Additionally, don’t mind what the family members or other church members may think, their judgments are not important. I personally feel that how you live your life and your relationships with everyone that is what is important, not living to please others or be ‘right’ in their eyes. It’s a very personal thing, and while there seems to have been many ups and downs regarding religion in your families, it’s up to you two to choose what’s right for you and what you are comfortable with and believe in.

There are many things in your post I’d like to comment on, but I’ll just say something really quickly: worship in the way you are COMPELLED to. Worship as much as you FEEL like it and do not worry about how others in the various churches will judge you. There is no doubt in my mind that they would wish for you to feel judged so that you can be influenced at best and controlled at worst.

As long as you do what makes you happy in your spiritual life, I don’t think you can go wrong. The rest is NO ONE’S business.

His mom and step-dad are huge hypocrites when they go to church

I do not mean to offend you, but it appears that you are judging the family in the same way that they are judging you. 

They are true christians as they are supposed to be…

I have a slight issue with this statement.  People dont get saved and “thats it.”  Accepting Christ truly is a neverending period of growth & understanding of his word.  As people grow in Christ, some sins are easy to give up and some sins will create an internal battle with that person for the rest of their lives.  It just depends on the individual. 

So maybe the grandparents do embodied an ideal of how a Christian should behave.  Thats really great.  But at the same time, we should not judge ppl who are just not at that level yet…after all, as Christians, we are continually growing in our faith day by day.
