Sorry. You wrote that you left the church. I misunderstood. My point is that it’s not about the actions of a few in the church, but rather the consistent results.

Can’t judge the validity of Jesus by actions of the church? 1 Corinthians 12 declares the church is the Body of Christ and God has placed the parts in the body just as he wants them. It’s like, "I know he just slapped your face, but don't judge him by what his hands do."

No brand of Christianity gives evidence of being a supernatural organization.

Then why did you leave? Why not just go to another church?

Take it easy. I’m not advocating any kind of violence and not saying Christians are evil. And your logic is flawed. The Jesus of the New Testament claimed to be God and promised to empower his followers.

Thomas Jefferson was more Deist than Christian. Leaving Christianity and still liking some of its teachings is one thing, but reshaping it by leaving out what you don't like is another.

But for 1 thing I might still be Christian. 1988—week at treatment center to prepare for Adult Children of Alcoholics sermons. Life changing. Led support groups. Wrote books. 20,000 groups in U.S. I saw that support groups worked better than faith. Left in 2007. Your 1 thing?

Many Christians take an Edward Scissorhands approach to the Bible. They cut, cut, cut until they have something presentable.

It was a parable. Like Jesus I’m trying to keep everyone guessing about what to take literally and what to take figuratively. And I don’t think any God is watching anyone.

It’s not hard to imagine. It’s a source of embarrassment.

Not either or. I just took the New Testament seriously.

How faith works: I was driving home last night and was T-boned by a truck. My neck and both legs are broken. If God hadn't been watching over me, who knows what would have happened! via

Where was God when the roof caved in?
