Hello from the West!
Just chiming in.

I'm new on this journey of exploring the truth.

I was raised as a pastor's kid. I've been in Christian ministry for the last 20 years.

And I'm just now reading the Bible critically for the first time in my life.

Scary and exhilarating. I'm what you could call a "Deist" at this point. I know the Bible is flawed. I'm just not ready yet to admit there is no God.

Here to vent and find some support. No one knows of my doubts besides my wife. And she's freaked out. This is a trying time.

Thanks for listening.

I'm just beating a guy called GirlyMan to the punch. He really can't seem to call anyone by their usual name. You'll run into him soon. It's best to keep your sphincter puckered tight when he comes around. Hobo

The one exception may be Chas. There's not a whole lot you can do with Chas.
Of course, that's why his ex-wife left him. Drinking Beverage
