  1. Thanks for the encouragement! Just finished "God's Problem: How the Bible fails to answer our most important question- why we suffer" by Bart D. Ehrman. Well-written and logical book that explores the different perspectives of the various biblical writers on why suffering is in the world. Very insightful actually, as Ehrman used to teach Theology at a high level, so he understands what he is discussing and explains how his exploration of this question led him away from Christianity. Recommended!
  2. And thanks to you too Margee- for your welcome and your posts! I've read a few and you have a way with words that conveys your thoughts very clearly Fortunately I have a few friends who understand what I'm going through as they've had similar experiences, so I'm talking through things with them.

It's been quite a long journey, but things are starting to click, especially things like the bad vibe I always got from emotional worship songs, Christian lingo that didn't actually mean anything, and strict versions of what faith is. Funny thing is, that is probably why I never went for Christian girls- there was always that sense of them being in a box that was similar to mine which I definitely did not like!
  8. Thanks Fuego- I appreciate you sharing your experiences and yes, I think that being able to know that goodness exists independent if Christianity will be key for me moving forward. Citsongw, Geezer, and MOHO, thanks for the welcome
  9. Kia ora (Hi) everyone from New Zealand. I've been devouring the material on this website over the last few nights since I searched Google for "Former Christian Forum"! Thought I'd say thanks for the material, and also how great it is that other people are going through or have gone through similar journeys to me. This post is also somewhat for my own sake to help order my thoughts, keep me accountable for continuing to ask questions, and learn in community, so hi! My name is Sam you can also call me by my handle (Rangi). The brief version of my story is as
