Rainbow The sun has arrived
Hey all!

Thought I'd drop by and introduce myself. My name is Angie, and I come from the land of pure chaos and confusion... South friggen Africa. The heat this side drives me insane. I wasn't born for sunshine and roses.

I used to be a Christian, having been brought up in a religious household. However, it was always said that "it's not a religion, it's a relationship with Jesus". Okay. Cool. I did the whole getting saved thing when I was a teenager and that's when I truly started getting radical and insane, trying everything to convert anyone and everyone. Heck, I even studied for, and received my diploma in ministry. The further into studying theology that I got, the more questions I started asking, and the more I started noticing that things just don't add up. It took a good 2 or so years to get me into a full deconversion though. And now, where I once thought I was free, I can truly say I'm finally REALLY free. From religion and fairytales. The chains have broken, and I have grown up. Relief.

So, that's how I came to land here. Hi to all of you and welcome to me. Wink

Welcome!

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Welcome. I'll happily take some of that sun and those roses from you. Big Grin

And yep, the more you learn about religion, the clearer it becomes that it's total nonsense.

Welcome! You should come to the states. Plenty of cold breezes here!

When you were in the deconversion process, did you still think how you used to as a Christian? I mean did some of those old thoughts pop up? That happens to me from time to time. Congrats on being free! Now if that religion wasn't every where!
