My name is Jodi, I am 37 years old and was raised a Christian. I however have doubted and subsequently decided that I no longer believe in the bible.
I 'think' I believe in God, but I'd be lying to say that I don't question. I have had plenty of spiritual experiences. I have had my share of
experiences with death even, like that of my daughter back in 2000. I still question the Christian God and am rather inclined to believe that it is
nothing more than a bunch of nonsense written by men. Men with big egos and something to prove, but little to none of it having to do with the truth
of the matter.
I was 10 when I started to question things. I read parts of the bible and thought "what sort of God would be like this? Why does God condone such
hatred of women?.. and more of the like.
I was raised in a Christian household, we went to church, we said our prayers at night, we said 'grace' before meal times... blah blah blah.. it
meant nothing to me. Just words, none of it proven, none of it meaning anything and certainly not believeable. I sometimes would envy those who
could just blindly believe this stuff, but as for me I just couldn't bring myself to believe something like that.
So as an ATS member, that is what I have to say about that!
