    Welcome to Ex-C, @UBU4U, Many of us have experienced all of what you are experiencing now. You're not alone. You may experience fear and doubt about your feelings for a bit but, little by little, you will think your way out of the indoctrination and mind-control. More and more you will think on your own be yourself - just as yours and my avatars indicate. - MOHO (Mind Of His Own)
  2. What you communicate here seems like a fairly normal reaction to realizing you have been in a cult and have been lied to for years. I base this assessment on your claim of exaggerating. Your post seems like kind of a rant were you are "getting it out of your system". This is good. But, at some point it might help for you to sit down and more clearly record your thoughts a feelings - then reread them a few times, make adjustments, and post again. This can be a good catharsis and will likely result in more helpful replies here. Of course, we are not psychiatrists and are not a substitute for professionals. We can, however, offer a little comfort and encouragement in your journey.
  3. I don't think that extracting pleasure from torture/execution or any other form of horrific abuse is at issue with Christianity. But requiring the aforementioned punishments to be metered out certainly reveals the Christian god as not so loving, tolerant, patient, or forgiving as the fundy pundits apparently believe. Conversely, the sheeple will hold that their god is vengeful and will smite the "enemies" of ... well...I'm not sure what. Anything that particular xtian feels is an enemy I suppose.
  4. Every single post from you, that I have seen, does nothing more than attempt to ridicule, belittle, and demean. You are not interested in an open discussion. You are not interested in an exchange of ideas. You are not even interested in defending Christianity - or anything for that matter. You are either a very angry person or just incredibly immature. Whatever your game I am not interested and will no longer respond to your posts. Have nice life (assuming you have one) and please seek professional help.
  5. Biblical faith is based on hope against hope that there is an aflert-life and a being that will take care of you there - despite very little evidence that either exists and plenty that they do not. To prop up my assertion please refer to Richard Carrier, Richard Dawkins, Bart Ehrman, Christopher Hitchens. As for the first definition of faith in the screenshot, confidence in people or a thing would, hopefully, be the result of prier performance of said person or thing. My experience, and that of others who's extimonies I have read, indicates, very strongly, that having faith in a god and prayer and Christianity ,or any religion for that matter, would be contrary to definition #1. Yes, I agree with you that Biblical faith has on object. That object is to dupe the masses into following an empty promise so that the purveyors of said duping can reap the rewards in money, power, and having so much control over the flock that they can have sex with anyone they wish and not be outed.

    I have read the article, and your comments, sir, and you, in no way whatsoever, gave any logical, rational, meaningful evidence or reason for your critical claims of the well written, researched, clear and concise article of a well respected professional authority on harmful religion. And it is clear to me and, I'm sure, all others on this thread that you know and understand that. If you do not then you are in desperate need of serious mental help.

    Narcissist much?
  8. They are not. There is no Satan. Anything else I can assist you with?
  9. His karma ran over his dogma? Boo. Hiiiissss. Old joke.
  10. Well now THAT was enlightening. Trust me, even though Mrs. MOHO is a scream'n fundy, there is no way in HELL she would even consider giving 10% of our annual, after tax income to anyone or anything. Good thing too as anything to the contrary would send me packing soooooo fast!
  11. Because the SPCA would bet their panties all in a wahd.
  12. @Improbability, Sorry for the belated post. I've been having issues posting but it looks like a very old version of FireFox is working...for now. Yes, you are embarking on a journey. Remember that. A little at a time. Reading and posting here helps as does reading from accomplished authors who have been where you are. Some even set out to prove the validity of xianity and religion and discovered otherwise along the way. But it does not sound like your troubles are with disbelief itself but in coming out and the impact it is, or will - maybe, have on your life. You will lose some friends and make some new ones. Some will stay with you and that is good. Some have stayed with me and in some of them I can see doubt in their eyes when the topic comes up. Your career. Well, being technical myself, software, I can advise taking measures to make yourself more marketable while you are still employed at the church. Online courses, many of which are free, attending user groups, and networking. Also don't worry about your degree. I have a B.S. in C.S. from Columbia and am in a hiring position and have interviewed and hired many technical folk. I say unto you - attitude, experience, and a willingness to keep learning are what matter most. Your lack of an accredited pigskin is not a show-stopper and, quite frankly, you don't want to work for a company for whom it is. Have not seen anything from you since your OP so I hope you are not discouraged. - MOHO (Mind Of His Own)
