I believe that Jesus Christ has a place in the Christian faith.
I don’t want to be a part of it anymore.
We don’t need to follow him.
I’ve always been a non-Christian.
In my youth, I grew up in a predominantly Roman Catholic church, which was theologically conservative.
I was taught that Jesus would return in his earthly ministry, and that the Bible is a divinely inspired and infallible document.
At the same time, I also became aware of a growing number of Christians who have no intention of joining the Christian church.
The church that I grew to love, the one I loved as a child, has become a cult.
There is no room for dissent.
The first thing I had to do when I discovered that I was leaving the church was to get out.
It was the right thing to do.
It took me about a year to make the transition, and I believe I made the right decision.
I know that many of my fellow ex-Christians are struggling with similar feelings.
But I believe there are other reasons for leaving the Christian tradition.
The most important reason is the loss of hope.
I lost hope in my faith when I became disillusioned by the church’s repeated refusal to admit any wrongdoing in the past.
I couldn’t believe that the church I loved would abandon its beliefs about Jesus, and its commitment to the church in which I was raised.
In its most recent confession, the church admitted to having “made serious mistakes in the doctrine of Christ.”
This confession was in response to an investigation by the US government into the deaths of more than 300 children in the 1990s in Guatemala City.
Many ex-members of the church also have lost hope because of the actions of its leaders, particularly its charismatic leader, John MacArthur, who, as a former missionary in Ghana, was a charismatic figure for many years.
MacArthur, known for his charismatic appeal and his controversial sermons, has been the subject of several investigations in the US.
One was led by the New York Attorney General and was the result of a complaint by former church members.
In the wake of the MacArthur investigation, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement expressing its “deep regret” for the “gross violations of human dignity and freedom of conscience” and urging MacArthur to “rethink his actions.”
The church’s response to the MacArthur probe is a reminder of how far we have to go.
The U.S. Attorney General’s Office recently announced that it would be launching an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse against MacArthur.
I think MacArthur’s actions are wrong.
And he should not be allowed to continue to lead the church.
I believe he needs to repent.
MacArthur is also not alone in his beliefs.
In 2016, the United Methodist Church issued a similar confession to the government.
In a letter to the U.N., it admitted that the UMC had committed “grave” and “unfathomable” sins during its leadership.
In recent years, the UCC has faced criticism from many members of the community.
They have protested against the church for its treatment of its former leaders and members.
Many ex-Mormons also have abandoned the church because of its refusal to condemn the abuse of minors.
A recent Pew Research Center survey found that, at the time of the survey, more than 70 percent of American adults were either “absolutely certain” or “strongly certain” that they had been abused by someone in their childhood.
Seventy-two percent of them believed that it was not possible for an adult to abuse a child.
This is not the way the world should be run.
It is a sad state of affairs.
I’m not blaming anyone else.
There are so many people who are sick of living in a broken system.
But there is a way forward.
When I think about what I am leaving, I wonder if my life is still worth living.
I wonder whether my family will survive.
And I wonder how long I can endure.
