It seems like more than just money was at the heart of a Little People, Big World family feud.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Matt and Amy's rebellious youngest son Jacob, 19, lashed out at his parents last year on social media, claiming he was "f***ed" out of his reality TV earnings. Amy later publicly apologized for putting her son onscreen, and the pair reconciled by Mother's Day.

However, faith seems to be a factor in the rift between Jacob, who no longer appears on the TLC reality show, and the rest of the Roloff clan.

While the Roloffs, especially big brother Jeremy, 26, and his blogger wife, Audrey, 24, have been vocal about their fervent Christianity, Jacob has announced he has no ties to the religion.

"I'm just not a Christian," he said on his Ask.fm page in 2014, later calling himself "agnostic."

He explained why he decided to abandon his parents' world.

"I defended myself 'being a Christian' until I realized I've never done anything to call myself one besides be born into a Christian family," he wrote.

Meanwhile, Audrey blogs about her dedication to Jesus, and Jeremy recently retweeted an article claiming "gay groups and large progressive companies" intend "to come after the churches."

Citing their faith, Jeremy and Audrey have also denounced homosexuality, despite the family's stress on diversity.

"It is not something we agree with," Audrey reportedly wrote in a since deleted comment to her marriage blog.
