  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. So, if he wants to talk, I am available. If not, I understand how busy he must be.
  14. I stopped believing in eternal torture in hell ten years before I left the church.
  15. My first like! I'm so excited.
  16. Thanks RNP. You will be my first like when I graduate to the cool kids club.
  17. How do I "like" a post? I see a lot of posts here that I like, and I see that other people have put little "likes" onto them. I don't know how to do that. Is there a certain post count that needs to be achieved first?
  18. I think you are right. (You must be a member of my tribe!) But seriously, I was watching one of those idiotic "survivor" shows on Netflix. The idea was that a person had to survive all alone in an arctic region of Canada. I thought that it was unrealistic because people have always banded together in order to survive. Perhaps one day, we can learn to cooperate with other "tribes" and gain a mutual advantage for everyone. Maybe we can start by removing walls instead of building new ones.

    Okay. Do you have a mother? Does she exist? (She created you)
  20. I live in a small town, where there is a GOP area office located in an old 60's-era storefront on a side street one address off of Main Street. If you walked out their door and around the corner, you would walk directly in front of the local DNC office. That's spooky. I just got a chill. On the other hand, these people are everywhere.
  21. But apparently, God can only ordain republican presidents. If a democrat is elected, they shrug their shoulders and say that god works in mysterious ways.
  22. All of them said that it was God's will that allowed Trump to win the 2016 election. Now I'll just wait to see if any of them says that it is God's will that allowed Joe Biden to win.
  23. Why do trumpers hate non trumpers so much? If I dislike Donald Trump because of his lack of character, and someone else likes Donald Trump despite his lack of character, why does the trumper dislike me so much for disliking Donald Trump?
