offtheromanroad Posted June 23, 2018 Share Posted June 23, 2018 Hey there, Have you ever apologized to people you once tried to convert, or have you ever tried to explain your former stupidity to nonchristians who already knew you before your deconversion process? I never was a hardcore fundie, but maybe fundie or fundie light. I feel embarrassed over some stuff I believed, and over some stuff I tried to "sell" to people (...virgin birth, really?). I once sent an email to my agnostic/atheist parents and sister laying out my testimony and forcing the Roman Road on them. That email feels so embarrassing that I haven't read it ever since even though it's still in my email account from when I sent it out 17 yrs ago. I never mentioned it to my family again, but still feel embarrassed. But... it'd feel even more embarrassing to bring it up now. To my great relief, I never gave them any Christian hate talk (I was never into the hate some Christians spread). I 've never talked to them about my deconversion, but they obviously know and see that I am not where I used to be faithwise. However, I don't feel like sending them my extimony either What about you... been there? And if so, did you address stuff like that? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
