  1. "There's no such thing as an ex-Christian. You were just an atheist who went to church and sang hymns and read the Bible and prayed. How can you stop being a Christian after reading the Bible and learning about how Jesus died for your sins. TRUE faith doesn't just UP and LEAVE you. God didn't answer your prayers? It's because you prayed wrong. Learn how to pray correctly and try it again. It doesn't matter that you can't make it to church because your car broke down. You can WALK ten miles every Sunday morning. It doesn't matter that you can't attend church two blocks away because it's old and the mildew gives you breathing problems. I have breathing problems and I still go to that old church, because I love Jesus. Yeah it makes me cough like crazy but I don't care because the only thing that matters is Jesus. It doesn't matter that going to church makes you anxious or if the sermon is depressing. I don't care that you found scientific evidence that we evolved from other hominids and weren't humans to start with. I don't care If another religion better suits your lifestyle and makes you feel mentally and physically good. If you focused more on Jesus and less on yourself, you would still be a Christian. If you're an ex Christian I hate you." Wow! That's a truly astounding piece of vitriol. It actually made me almost laugh out loud when I read it.

    Life found 2.4km deep in the earth

    Fascinating! I enjoy hearing about such discoveries. It just makes me that more excited over the prospect of extraterrestrial life. I figure that it is just a matter of time before we confirm its existence.

    Verses that bug you in the bible

    Oh, yeah! pretty damm scary verses when you think about it. So these people could do exorcisms and miracles, and yet weren't "saved". Goin' straight ta hell. Yeah, that's ridiculous!

    so sick of facebook :P

    " But then, a few years ago, the christian noose fell around his neck and stopped the bloodflow to his brain." Hilarious and sadly accurate at the same time. Love it!

    Hey, I really enjoyed reading your story. Glad that you found us!

    Mistakes you made thinking it was “non-Christian”

    Wow, fascinating stories! (Un?)fortunately), I have nothing to share regarding the topic. I partook of many "unchristian" practices with nary a shred of guilt.

    Why did she broke up with me in such a cruel and bad way?

    It won't be easy for you at first, for sure, but it will eventually get better. The "unequally-yoked" thing ruins a lot of relationships!

    How did you choose your nickname?

    I am a big H. P. Lovecraft fan, and enjoy reading "Cthulhu Mythos" tales written by HPL and his pals, One of his friends, Clark Ashton Smith, came up with a bizarre "bat-toad-sloth" deity named Tsathoggua : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsathoggua I always thought that this mad god was just as cool as HPL's much-more famous Cthulhu, so I adopted his name!

    Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

    I don't care to mince words about it, either. I might say either "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Holidays!" That's just not something that I get worked up about.
