Not a Christian not (yet??) an athiest
I've been having an internal battle about Christianity.. really all my life, but only seriously let myself give in to the doubts and think logically for around a year now. I don't really consider myself an athiest, but I needed somewhere to go with my non-religious ideas as I live in the bible belt and can hardly mention any doubts to anyone around me. It's pretty crazy making. The only person in the world who knows I've basically given up Christianity is my amazing husband, who was never a Christian. Anyway, I needed a little support through this crazy ride and found a lot of helpful things from this site along the way so I thought this would be the place to come.

Welcome to the forum. Might I suggest a browse through this topic? Might be worth your time Smile

Hello and welcome to the forums Smile . You can find both a great deal of support and a lot of information here. Many of us have been in your position before. Coming out of religion is very scary. Its hard to think about literally everything in the world without god if that is what you have been doing your entire life (or the bible if you still believe in a higher power). It will get easier though, and everyone I know who has left the church feels much happier and much more secure than they did in it. Best of luck on your journey! Please do post more, and continue to share your story.

Welcome aboard the forum, doubting Roger.

(I'm assuming that your chosen forum name is not an instruction?!?)

We have maybe one or two here who might have been through the same experience.

Welcome. Pull up a chair and stay awhile.

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

Hello,

This is a great place to roam around, read, and talk.

I was in your shoes once and it's pretty miserable at times. When I found TTA, I already knew that the bible was bogus, but was unsure where to go from there.

Good to have you with us!
