So Nate from Finding Truth called me out last week on my own blog:
he said…“I’m not even sure that calling you a theist is even all that accurate at this point…”
And I replied to him saying…“i still consider myself a christian, but in belief…ur probably correct. I find myself more and more disinterested in the typical christian sermon…In fact I caught myself rolling my eyeballs (to what I felt what was rubbish) on I think was youtube or moody radio. I can’t remember exactly what i was listening too, but the feeling of wanting to listen to something else.”
So, Now I’m faceing my own truth. I can no longer look in the mirror and honestly call myself a bible believing christian, because in all honesty I don’t believe any of it. I tried to stay balanced and post something pro-christian and pro-atheist. (But to no effect, did it have on my own doubt.) I find myself enjoying lectures by Bart Ehrman more than listening to any sermon or reading my bible.
So I decided to call my sister up, to tell her about my unbelief. I said to her, “Hey, I want to tell you something, and I wanna kinda see your reaction for when I tell other people. –I said I no longer believe in christinity, I no longer believe in the christian god, I no longer believe in the bible.”
she asked why of course, and told her it was all the fundamental problems with the bible and that there were too many of them for me to believe it anymore.
Now there was a little more to the conversation.
But she was actually happy for me…I think she was she just happy I am no longer a christian nutbag.
Who to tell next:
