First a fundamentalist. Then a heathen. Now a heretic. How did I get there? Where do I go from here?
"Tell me about the God you don't believe in. I probably don't believe in that one either."
"It was a little weird because I'm not a believer." Priceless.
Thanks for sharing this video! So many people on the path to discovering Truth. I'm fairly new to the conversation, but if you know of any recovering Catholics who would like to talk, I'd be grateful to hear from them. Thanks!
ExChristian.net, the forum that Dr. Winell advises on, is a huge mine of people from all kinds of denominational backgrounds. She also has a forum on her own website JourneyFree.org.
I think this is wonderful! The Church for the last two millennia, and especially the fundagelicals for the last two centuries, has systematized theology (especially soteriology) and made it a limited, scary thing. They have redrawn the face of God into a schoolyard bully! How wonderful that the loving God revealed to this woman the fact that much of so much theology, including what she gave up, is false! Does the quote I read just last night from C.S. Lewis fit in here: “We do know that no person can be saved except through Christ. We do not know that only those who know Him can be saved by Him” (Mere Christianity, p. 64)? Some reading I’ve doing about Siddhatta Gotama rings in tune with my heart (Buddha by Karen Armstrong).
