Am I considered a Theist?

Yeah, I believe there's a god, but I'm also questioning it...So I might convert to atheism. I'm not really Christian....What is a theist anyway?

 A person who believes in God.

 

If you're not sure about the existance of God you're an agnostic.

If you believe in God you are a theist. It's good that you're questioning it, questioning is always a good thing!

Good! Another Theist at the

Good! Another Theist at the verge of conversion. The will to search the truth and doubting the non-existent God's word brings you closer to deconversion from Theism. I suggest you do so. Start thinking and questioning the whole religion and seek information about it.

Trust and believe in no god, but trust and believe in yourself.

Yes, you're a theist. What questions about god are you asking?

'Supernatural' (and 'immaterial&#39Eye-wink are broken concepts

Agnosticism and It's Many Misconceptions

Am I agnostic or atheist?

An agnostic is not a religious position, you either believe there's god or not -

2.

a person who denies or doubts the possibility of ultimate knowledge in some area of study.

People who think there is something they refer to as god don't ask enough questions.

We're pretty good at

We're pretty good at answering questions, but the best advice might be to question everything we tell you too.  

The root of so many problems stems from people simply believing what other people tell them.  It's best to weigh things in your own head, doing your own reading and your own serious reflection.

Guys: I'd like to point out

Guys:

I'd like to point out that a theist believes in A god. Not "God" but "at least one god" and possibly more, as in the case of polytheistic religions. Theist is a general term for religious people of any stripe at all.
