My wife is a devout christian and I'm increasingly becoming a non-believer. Should I tell her?

We both met in church, started dating, and got married when we both shared a common religious belief. For a number of reasons I could no longer identify myself as a christian (for details see my previous post here
I've largely kept this to myself and never discussed this with her about my evolution, for a number of reasons 1) to protect her as the religion works for her 2) to preserve the marriage 3) to save myself from enormous trouble.
The problem is I'm a little sick to pretend and continue to do all this christian functions (i.e. church, gathering...etc.). Should I come clean about this and face the consequences?
