This week’s show is a Deconversion Anonymous episode.
My guest this week is Sarah. Sarah is a co-author of the book “Still Unbelievable!” She is a regular poster on the Unbelievable? discussion boards. Sarah has a unique blend of down to earth perspective and an intellectual rigor.
In some respects, it is like being skinned alive layers of belief are being pulled away.
Sarah grew up a Christian. She was a part of the Shepherding Movement which is now considered a cult. She has moved from the Anglican church, to (British) Baptist, and then to Charismatic Vineyard churches. Until she began to research her own faith. What she found was an utter lack of evidence and a confusing morass of conflicting information.
You are giving god CPR.
You really are trying to keep it alive with the best intentions
She describes her search for validation as “going forensic” as she studied apologetics, philosophy, cosmology and evolution. Ultimately, she could not keep god on “life support” and she is now an agnostic.
Love is a good way to live your life.
Love is the point.
We’ve only got this present moment.
That is all we know for certain.
