Hello my name is M. Rodriguez. I have been married for several years with two kids in my late 20’s. (When I first opened up this blog I went by thebiblereader, so if you end going through the archives of this blog that’s me too.)
Initially this blog was opened up so I could quench my questions of doubt. It was a Christian struggle in my journey to find reasonable faith. However in my journey to find reasonable answers to these Bible difficulties/contradictions. I ended up taking a scalpel to my faith and the bible and evaluating my own faith. (Why I am no longer a Christian) I found that the bible was a book written by man and inspired by man. And that the notion of not just a Christian God contradictory but also a personable God was far too contradictory and illogical for anyone to believe.
The first year of this blog the majority of post are on the topic of me trying to reconcile my faith with reason and the question of: Is the Bible Inerrant? And I have a whole page dedicated to that study, because I spent so much time on that.
So Begins my road to the bitter sweet end.
After coming to the conclusion that Christianity is far too fallacious to be believable. Then in late June of 2011, I could no longer hold onto faith for the sake of faith. I had to tell my wife (that is still a work in progress), my pastor (that was an awkward conversation), and had to resign from my position of leadership at the church as youth leader. I still do go to church with my wife as a way of keeping the peace, but I’m not even sure if that would work.
