What was the first doctrine or belief to go when you started re-examining/deconstructing your faith?
@mrhurricanefred evolution came first, but my views on LGBTQ+ community brought the most significant deconstruction after my girlfriend came out to me as bisexual.
@annelise I was also diagnosed almost one year ago. I used to feel so isolated having these symptoms, so it feels good to have others on here so open about their experience. Welcome to the club. We’re not alone!
The small city of Sandusky, Ohio, has declared Election Day a paid holiday — by swapping it out with Columbus Day.
@shua it’s a long-needed solidarity.
I wouldn’t want to advertise here, either. But I do love a good conversation-feel free to keep sharing starters!
@shua I play at church every week and can empathize. If you ever write, I’d love to see!
@AndrewBrooks wow I resonate with all of this. I also deeply resonate with the fulldrive. Mad love for the fulldrive
@mike lets go war-masturbation!
@Kaitlyn1994 I also went through really rapid deconstructions, when I felt like I had to stop calling myself a Christian overnight. I was always grateful because a lot of my friends had very painful departures from faith. It’s still not easy, but being open to the rapid change helped me to be a lot happier as an atheist than I was as a Christian.
@Jacob I can empathize with all of this!
@burdn4 they’re such good words to stick together, aren’t they? Especially with 5 wings-we can get into some pretty fun territory.
@mike oh this is a good place, then. I’ll be right over.
I’m still getting to know this platform, so #introductions feels like a good place to start.
I’m Luke. As a poster evangelical child, I became a youth pastor quickly after high school and began a career as a guitarist in the Christian music industry. After a series of unfortunate events, I lost my faith and my two careers, found solace in science and am now on the pre-med journey. I’m an #enneagram4, a partner to an amazing woman and an avid reader. I’m always excited to start some deep chats!
I’m glad we have @mike to lead us all into this strange world. Excited to see what comes next!
I’m still figuring myself out.
