    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?

    I'm not sure. Yahweh may be there, but IDK.

  1. I buried some daffodil bulbs last fall. They are just now coming up. That's kind of nice to see.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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."
  7. I am ashamed to say that there is more than that. A lot more.
  8. 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.
  9. 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/
  10. I got banned from a christian forum (www.christianforums.com) for saying that hell isn't real. Oh well.
  11. Thanks, things are going good. I'm just like "Meh, they can do whatever they want. I'm not part of them anymore." You said it exactly right about the hypocrisy though. If it was true that Trump became president because a god wanted him to be president, then the same applies to Biden. But we aren't hearing any of them say "god made Biden president". Whatever. They prove themselves to be hypocrites every day, and I'm not part of their group anymore.
  12. Hey Professor, I don't really feel like celebrating Christmas. I'm in weird territory for me. What do exchristians do on Christmas? Especially this year, putting a tree in the house and tinsel everywhere seems kind of pointless.
  13. Okay, I'll say it. If your god wants to tell me something, he should be able to do it. Isn't he "all knowing" and "all powerful"? I think you believe that he is. If he is all knowing, then he knows my cellphone number and he can call at any time. I don't need you to tell me what he thinks. I know that you are going to say that it is arrogant of (puny) me to demand that the all powerful creator of the universe to call me, but that isn't the case. I am not making any demands. But talking to someone is a good way to get them to understand what it is that you want. Even for gods. S
  14. I stopped believing in eternal torture in hell ten years before I left the church.
