What hope we have as an ANCHOR of the soul

By Lethargic Sweetheart ~

I have recently started questioning the Christian faith I've been raised to believe in. It happened when I was reading my Bible and stumbled upon several passages I don't agree with (those passages being the ones that condone rape and state that you must marry your rapist), and I realized.

The vast majority of the things in that book are the complete opposite of what I believe in. Having been raped, I can not in any way, shape, or form understand how a loving god could make you marry the person who did it. In fact, I couldn't remember the last time the Bible gave me comfort; instead, it filled me with anxiety, depressing thoughts, and feelings of worthlessness.

And thus, a tiny revolution sparked inside my mind. And I let go.

If you're anything like me, you probably know where I'm coming from when I say that I still have doubts. At the moment, I refer to myself as agnostic. But the longer I stray from my religion, the more... free I feel. I feel like there's hope. I don't feel like some almighty being is gonna send me to hell every time I have sex or cuss or etc.

I have my days where I get scared, like I'm wrong and I'm actually going to hell and etc.. But most of the time, I feel more free, more alive, more open minded.

It's amazing.
