Hey everyone. I was a Christian for some 14 years of my life, not a devout one, but a Christian nontheless. I never even read the entire bible at that time. I believed that the bible was the inerrant word of God. I thought I was a bad person destined for eternal hellfire because I did not want to attend church every Sunday, usually my mother really had to coax me to go. I only was familiar with the passages that my preacher spoonfed me. It wasn't until I became of age, that I refused to go to church, and I actually sat down to read the entire bible to see what Christianity was all cracked up to be. To my astonishment, the bible was filled with absurdities, misconceptions, intolerance, and flat-out lies. I could not believe that the church pulled the wull over my eyes for all those years. Shortly after, I became a skeptical Christian, still believing in God, just not the bible, then I became an agnostic, now I'm a full-blown atheist. I continue to read from the bible to this day.
