I have two main hobbies: I love music and love to read. I also like art galleries, drama, and playing with my iPod. Of course, theology and philosophy are big ones, since I'm on here.
More About Me
I quit Christianity on November 22, sometime in the afternoon, when I was 14 years old. I had been having guiltily suppressed doubts for a couple years, but then I read a chapter of the missionary Jack Popjes' book A Kick in the Pants, in which he said Jesus had been sent to save the world
mainly for God's glory, to make people want to worship him. (If you read
the Old Testament, particularly Exodus and Job, it gets into God glorifying
himself quite a bit.) Well, a seasoned Christian like Popjes saying that
broke my faith in the point of Christianity. Why should I trust Jesus if
salvation is really about polishing God's pedestal? If you want to read
about other things that are wrong with it, like the Bible's sexist double
standards and winking at rapists, comment on my profile. Best wishes to all other infidels.
P.S. I should probably clarify that I am not a Satanist. I know Satanists like the number 666, but I think they misuse it. To me, it is a symbol of secularism, of my non-Xian values, because Xians consider that number to be evil. So I like it. I hate killing, I don't want to go to hell, and I enjoy being happy.
