I have spent a major portion of my life in the church. My stepfather is a pastor and ever since I was eight years old my family and i traveled around Australia preaching at several different churches.
premarital sex. We both felt bad and decided to stop, but it kept happening.But nothing bad ever came from the sex. I didn't get pregnant, or a VD or anything like that. about one year later he moved in with me and my friends. I was in a leadership position at my church and the church kicked up a big stink. Eventually I stepped down before I could get kicked out of my position.
About three months after I said yes to my love's proposal, he told me he didn't want to be a Christian anymore. People then told me I could not marry him as we were "unequally yoked." I loved my husband and of course I was still going to marry him. Then I started to spot things in the Christian faith that I didn't agree with such as anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage. I was also stopped recently by some street preachers and they made me feel embarrassed to be associated with people like that. And I don't understand If God loves us, like loves us like he says he does, why do children get raped and things like that.
So right now I am in the middle of deciding if I want to be a Christian anymore. I'm leaning toward Agnostic. Does anybody have any advice for me telling my Christian friends..thanks for letting me rant.
