Preachers always used to say "I've never met a person who ever regretted giving their live to Jesus!" Well, he wasn't looking very closely at all 30 years later I regretted it big time and continue to regret that day.

I doubt there are many people who know why they believe--they are just in the habit of believing it.

Just a friendly reminder. This is Ex-Christian.net. We are former christians, we left the faith, because we saw that it was bullcrap. Just a fair warning, we still think its bullcrap and will say so on our forum. Expect it!

Looking back on it, Christianity is just one big emotional mind fuck.

Even now, I don't think I really got it. The way that people would explain why I should be saved would just sound like a bunch of words that meant nothing to me. It made them happy though, so I did it.
