    Fell Betrayed And Let Down!

    All my life I've lived according to what's been drilled into my mind about how a good, God fearing person should live like. I've spent 39 years believing that God is all knowing and all merciful. I've refrained myself from anything that might offend God. I've been told that if I...

    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...

    He's Not With Me...

    I used to be a pretty spiritual person. I used to feel God's presence. I was near clairvoyant. Now I feel nothing. I've been questioning everything that I believed in. Was this part of my downfall in the spiritual realm? It's gotten to the point where I honestly can't pray. It's...

    I am considering unbelief again.

    I have been brutalized by God with convictions that have strangulated my person, and torn flesh from bone. I have sought The Lord with radical zeal, and yet faced torment, isolation, ongoing starvation for human attachment. And to this day, not a word of consolation from...

    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...
