  1. Hi, everybody...it's been a while I noticed that nobody mentioned the movie adaptation of Stephen King's "The Stand"...I guess it's not about a "struggle of faith" as you put it because the good and evil sides are pretty much polarized from the beginning. But it absolutely drips with religious overtones and "preachiness". I actually liked the movie despite the preachiness...but hey...it's Stephen King
  2. Sorry for everything that happened to you Brianna...there are a great many religious people in the world who put their church above all else, including family, and that's just not right. The important thing for you now is to stay on your own path and find your way. You will be ok.
  3. I left the cult in 1988 and I still feel the odd tinge of anger. I think it's perfectly normal and human to be angry at the indoctrination that happened in our childhoods. Like Weezer said...find a constuctive outlet for it.
  4. Welcome to ex-c, Dandilion For me, coming out was like ripping off a band aid...my pentecostal cult family was butt hurt for a while, and they "ministered" to me every chance they got, but that soon stopped. Maybe they figured I was a lost cause and the devil had me
  5. Why did God put the tree of knowledge in the garden of eden? And why did he make adam and eve hungry for knowledge? Surely he knew that they would eat from it...? He CAN see the future...right? (I ask a lot of "why" questions. It's why I'm a "heathen").
  6. I find this SV person to be rather entertaining...especially with all the "demon attack" talk. Lmao
  7. Hi and welcome to ex c As to the missionary stuff, that's what Christians do...they spread their doctrine...its like a virus. And it's just as harmful as covid 19. On the bright side, heathens like us ( ) are gaining some ground as church attendance has been slipping lately. Just recently, it was announced that a church in my hometown is closing later this year because of financial issues. I guess god needs money lol
  8. Hi Blue, nice to hear from you again
  9. Hi and welcome, 2022grad...the book of Revelations was reportedly written by a guy in exile on a desert island with very little food...so he fasted and concentrated on "god stuff"...eventually his brain became so malnourished that he started having weird hallucinations...I've had similar experiences after eating some questionable mushrooms
