Re: Ex Believers: Why Did You Quit?
Why did I quit?
A variety of reasons. I began to doubt the miracles, the resurrection and the divinity of Jesus. But what brought it all to a head, was that it was becoming increasingly obvious that people who claimed to be Christian were not behaving as I would expect.
For example, how could someone claim to be Christian and teach "The Good Samaritan" yet be racist?
How could a pastor lecture the teenagers on morality, but be blind to some of the business practices of an older church member? Was their tithing what really mattered? Was it all about the money?
