Greeting fellow unbelievers. I decided to make this extremely brief because unless you were a part of our church [Worldwide Church of God, publishers of the Plain Truth magazine] you probably won't be that interested in the details. So here goes:
I was a christian the first 47 years of my life. During that time I couldn't conceive of a life outside of Christianity. Then there was a major crisis in our church and I was forced to reexamine my faith. I believe I did that honestly and objectively. During this period of examination a friend of mine suggested that I not throw out the baby with the bath water. I thought that was good advise but in the end I found there was no baby.
I've been out the church for several years but I still find myself asking how in the world I could have believed what I did for so long. At least it's comforting to know that I'm not alone.
