I Have Lost My Faith In God

    After trying to be a Christian with my

    girlfriend. Going to church, getting baptized, and working at a bible camp. I hated it all. Reading the bible I wondered why would anyone want to worship a dictating manipulator. Who has killed many because his perfect way for some reason did not work. If we is all knowing how...

    Lost Faith

    I have lost my faith in God a long time ago. I used to revered Him, believing all the good, the fairness, and the Benevolence of Him. But now for me, He is just a cruel , unfair, blind God. I have suffered alot of injustices, cruelty, and sadness for this past 3 years...

    I feel I have been letting my family down most

    of my life. I pray about it all the time but it doesn't seem to get better. Once I start to feel like I am doing something that will make them proud, everything just falls apart. I was always the smart kid in the family. Always had good grades. Everyone was proud of my. Lately...

    This is my proof of the fraudulent, and manipulation of the bible, Don’t get me wrong.. I am not against God, Or Jesus. But, I do believe that these stories were manipulated for the purpose of control, which has succeeded greatly, First of all History back’s me up, for my...

    There Is Only One Sin. That Is Weakness....

    Naked I came out of my mother's womb and naked I return. Helpless I came and helpless I go. Helpless I am now. And we do not know [the goal]. It is terrible for us to think about it. We get such odd ideas! We go to a medium and see if the ghost can help us. Think of the weakness...

    I lost it a looong time ago,

    way back in the early years of elementary school. Will I ever go back? No. I don't believe in fairy tales, I grew out of them. I'm just glad I was able to see the "light" and get out of that suffocating cult before I was drained of all that makes me... me. I like that my...

    I lost it. All my faith

    that I got just a few years back. They are gone. Drained out. I prayed and prayed. Slowly depleting. Slowly finding myself in more and more dire situations. I can't seem to pull myself up. I needed another hand to pull me. I needed to save the others as well. I can't do it...

    I just think it would be easier to believe in

    an indifferent God than a loving one. Then we wouldn't have to sit around questioning suffering and unanswered prayer. I'm thinking of becoming a Buddhist. Then I can just work on demolishing desires and attachments and learn to move through this world like a ghost that no one...

    I "found God" about 15 years ago

    after a somewhat nasty divorce. Call it a rebound relationship. Odds are, they never work out. I was on fire for the first several years. I immediatley started liking the new contemporary Christian music. You could say that it sucked me in. I started playing guitar (at 39 years...

    from time to time like I am just wandering, with no end, lost, lonely, confused, and so far, I have not seen a ray of light, a glimmer of hope, or an act that moves me. I no longer feel love, I barely feel anger, I feel sadness but only for a second before it wavers off into...

    Why is it that so much suffering comes to the

    most selfless and generous people. How can a God allow this to happen? If there were a God, how is it that these people are allowed to suffer.

    I am sad that I have lost my faith in God.

    I used to be a very strong, Christian until I started questioning and becoming involved in leadership in the church. I saw so much wrong going on at one time from the pastor on down -- from backbiting to gossip to plain out lies and meanness all the way to people committing...

    but nothing good has come out of it. I was once a strong follower of God it's hard for me to believe he exist. How can someone so powerful let all these horrible things happen to this world? Everyone said he didn't create evil but they say he creates all of us then if we turn...

    First, I haven't totally lost faith in God -

    I've been down that road before and come back - but as much as I want to, I can't stop questioning why things have happened they way they have. I'm 34 so I've had enough experiences to be able to at least detect patterns in my life. And they are all bad. When good things come...

    I see the believers couldn't find any evidence

    for any God, so they block me out, so much for their discussion. Religious zealots of all denominations are both delusional and dangerous, shouldn't they be peaceful and articulate?

    lost faith in God and how unfair He has been to me. Well, I think after the events of this last week, I am officially done with Him. He refuses to listen to me, help me, or give me a f***ing break. So much for all of the "rules" and guidelines for what a person has to do to get...

    In 2010 I was saved while in prison.

    I have never been married or have kids. I asked god for a wife, a good woman I could call my own. I understand "in gods perfect timing that he will give you the desires of your heart." Well 5 years later and still single, I have shut god out of my life. I walk my dog at the...

    That doesn't mean you can't believe in god. That just means you don't have to hate gays, it's ok to get a divorce, believing in a different religion is not cause for war, and sex before marriage is awesome, not a damnable sin. The bible was written by humans in an ignorant...
