    I was the guitar player on our worship team, privately studied theology, and I was learning NT Greek for about 7 years. I'm not sure that I am "exchristian" right now, but I think I am done with church, at least for a while. IDK?

  1. That sounds exactly like my brother. He didn't listen to a word I said.
  2. Thanks for suggesting the gray rock technique. I never heard of that, but it looks like a good strategy. I know that my brother just likes to rile me up any way he can. He's kind of a bully. (I'm the younger brother)
  3. I agree. I never watch the news on television. It seems like they just want to rile people up in order to keep them tuned in to view the ads. I read the news, that way it is at my pace and I can think about what I am reading.
  4. Thanks, I know that but it is difficult when it is your brother. I asked him to not talk to me about politics, but he couldn't stop. The last time he texted me about politics, I texted back asking him to apologize for texting me about politics after I asked him not to, and he just blew up. I'll just wait until he comes to his senses. He's been brainwashed by Trump propaganda, and it's just sad.
  5. Today (of all days) I lost my brother to Trumpism.
  6. I buried some daffodil bulbs last fall. They are just now coming up. That's kind of nice to see.
  7. Well. Easter. The wife is going to church, hoping to not have to explain why I'm not there. I'm hoping to be left alone. Maybe I'll go get some white eggs (all of mine are brown) and color them. Fun times!
  8. Exactly. All I need to say to anyone is "I don't go to church anymore." It's not my fault that they stick their noses where they don't belong.
  9. Thanks. I've told the pastors and an elder exactly what's going on and why I won't go back. I didn't tell Kevin. You have good advice.
  10. Thanks Florduh, I'll do that, except that I walk with my wife who is still a believer (I don't really know what I am). I don't want to offend anyone, I just want to be left alone. My wife was with me when the person (lets call him Kevin) asked. I let my wife respond. She said "We don't go because of the pandemic, but after that is over we'll be back." She knows that I'm not going back, but Kevin doesn't really need to know that. I didn't say anything else about that.
  11. How do you handle the questions from people from your old church? I was on a walk and somebody asked me if we were still going to church. Right now, the pandemic is a handy excuse but that might come to an end. I don't want to open up a whole can of worms, but I don't want to lie to people either. I think it is rude of them to ask, but I know that they are not trying to be offensive. I'm thinking of just saying "Church got to be too political, so I don't go anymore."
  12. I am ashamed to say that there is more than that. A lot more.
  13. Haha, thanks. It seemed important at the time. Now I know that religion is the game where everything is made up and the points don't matter.
  14. Technically it was for rule breaking, posting about hell outside of the "unorthodox theology" section. People kept asking questions about hell, and since I had done a lot of bible study about hell, I answered their questions. I was (or am? IDK) an annihilationist. Here's a sample, if you like: https://www.christianforums.com/threads/the-wages-of-sin-is-death-not-eternal-torment-in-hell.7753112/
