    Tired of the mental and emotional torment of Christianity.

  1. They've finally found the crocaduck

    Looks like Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort got their evidence.
  2. Was that all in Revelations? Eh maybe it was from the OT I was thinking. Good point with the Romans though.
  3. Doesn’t this correlate with something in Revelations though? I haven’t read the book in ages.
  4. I’ve already seen so many people on Facebook say that.
  5. Geez the evangelicals must be going crazy over this.
  6. Thoughts About Sin

    You gotta be when it comes to their craftiness.
  7. Thoughts About Sin

    I think it’s hilarious that there are liberal Christians that believe that the story of Adam and Eve is allegory for humanity becoming sentient. If that’s the case then Christianity becomes more philosophy than religion.
  8. Are any of you familiar with the apologist Sye Ten Bruggencate? Essentially that’s all I hear in my mind when I try to reach a logical conclusion about science, religion, or life in general. “How do you know?” Is pretty much what it boils down to.
  9. I have been going through the process of unbelieving and it’s growing pains. It’s just that everytime I try to accept what has been actually proven with science or logic I can hear the fundamental apologists “debunking” those truths. It’s like everything that proves that Yahweh doesn’t exist or that the Bible isn’t infallible, I hear that little Christian apologists voice in the back of my head.
  10. To summarize my story with Christianity, it would go like this. I was a general theist that was having fears of hell before my mom and stepdad introduced Christianity to me. I was part of the Church they went to for a couple of years until I started working and stopped going there almost all together. Eventually I started gaining a budding fascination in science and starting learning how the universe as a whole worked. Eventually I started to question my faith and decided to accept the scientifically proven facts as how the universe works. Years later after family issues and a death in the family I went on to live with my dad where there wasn’t as many religious influences. However with certain problems arising earlier this year I eventually relapsed into Christianity and all seemed fine until I learned about apostasy. The fear of being eternally locked out of heaven was almost to much to bear, I couldn’t sleep or find anything to be happy about. I was even considering suicide just to get the judgement of God over with until I came the conclusion, what kind of all loving creator would punish me for questioning his existence? Eventually I moved away from religion all together and have been slowly recovering from its ill effects. However from time to time I find myself thinking about Hell and what if going there. Tl;dr I became a Christian as a teen, stop being one after learning about scientific theories of life and origins. Certain issues came about that convinced me to be a Christian again until I learned about apostasy and the punishment that entails with it. Left religion all together after question the omnibenevolence of god. I still struggle with the thought of going to hell from time to time.
  11. Why is it that with the writers of the Bible that go out of their way to say that very few will answer the call of Yahweh? Seriously, scattered throughout the whole book (mostly in the NT from what I remember) the extensively claim many will not bother calling to God. Is this some sort of collective victim complex or did the writers of the book and early church founders have so little faith in their own doctrines?
  12. The Doubt Paradox

    This, this right here was me when I relapsed back to Xianity earlier this year. My pastor and church elders tried to convince me that it was ok and I was a prodigal son. Even when I said that it was directly from the Bible and that it was God’s infallible word, they said I would be forgiven. I couldn’t get over it though, the fearful expectation of judgement (also referenced in Hebrews) and going to hell. It disgusted me and truly got me think what “all loving god” what eternally punish me for doubting his existence.
  13. A literal rapture is unbiblical? Sorry if I'm asking this, I grew up in a church that taught that it would literally wisk people up into the air.
  14. So many Christians are freaking out over this, even though it's a voluntary program at one particular company.
  15. According to apologists, one can't understand the Bible unless they have received the Holy Spirit and submitted themselves to Jesus. Obviously this claim is false since there are many non believing researchers who dissected the book completely. Honestly I want to get your thoughts on this.
