Jane Posted July 31, 2019 Share Posted July 31, 2019 Hi! Just found this site by accident after searching for other former Christian's experiences. It was very difficult for me to let go of my faith but in the end ( about 5 years ago) it brought me only unhappiness and frustration. I just couldn't believe anymore. I stopped believing for various reasons the top being suffering, of humans and animals ( who don't even sin) , and a God that created all that . There are just too many things in the Bible that don't make sense, and make God look like a jerk. Prayers don't get answered either. God has never talked to me, neither given me any sort of sign he is real. I don't want to worship some supernatural being that treats his creation like crap. So I no longer believe in the Bible. If you don't believe in the Bible, you are not a Christian. Therefore I left the church ( LCMS Lutheran then Episcopal, but that didn't work for me either) Now my problem is this, I realize it is nice to have faith in some supernatural GOOD God, that loves us and will put is in heaven after death where we will see all our Christian friends and loved ones again. So, I do not want to take anyone else's faith away. At the same time , I really don't know what to say or not say to my still Christian friends and relatives ( almost everyone I know). They are worried about me, sincerely, and are afraid I will go to hell. The pray for me, and tell me to pray harder to get my faith back, and I don't want to make them feel bad. At the same time I just can't fake it either. Very depressing sometimes Jane 3 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
