Ask A Fomer Fudamentalist
I grew up in a Plymouth Brethren church. I attended from about 6 years old until I graduated from high school. My parents are still fundamentalist young earth creationists.

Did you ever really believe or did you always have doubts?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Ask A Fomer Fudamentalist
I really believed in a God. Just because I was taught that He did exist. I don't remember not believing. I became a Christian because I didn't want to go to hell, and God offered a free gift. What kind of idiot wouldn't accept a free gift of eternal life? Especially since all one had to do was pray. I was told the Bible was inspired by God, the Bible said it was inspired by God. Who was I to argue?

It became obvious rather quickly that our doctrines and interpretations were messed up, but I believed there was a God behind all world religions for about 40 years.

According to our church? Straight.

Were you calvinistic? Anabaptist?

What was the take on the sacraments?

Definitely calvinistic. There were entire sermons on the veracity of the calvinistic interpretation of scripture. Those that believed you could lose your salvation were openly mocked.

There was never any mention of the sacraments, per se. I believe that is a catholic doctrine, and our church was profoundly anti-Catholic.
