I see a lot of posts on here from non-Christians completely bashing Christians and Christianity. (of course, I see a lot of bashing coming from Christians as well, so it's not a one-way street by any means)
What I am wondering is, did you have a bad experience with a Christian and/or a church that caused you to be bitter in this respect?
Is this what turned you away from God/Christianity? I know several of you just never felt God, (so that part of the question isn't directed to you :-) )
This is not meant to be a debate by any means, I am asking in complete respect and love for your beliefs, it was just something that I have always been curious about. I am in no way intending on trying to convert you or prove you wrong in any aspect, I am just wanting to know.

What I am wondering is, did you have a bad experience with a Christian and/or a church that caused you to be bitter in this respect? I cannot say I have had a 'bad' experience with a church or Christian person. I have been immersed and Christianity full fledged since the day I was born.Â I have seen it ALL when it comes to Christianity. I know the good and bad. I am not bitter towards it in anyway. I hope I haven't seemed bitter...because I am really not!!!Â The one thing I can say is, I do have bitterness towards Christian churches. It had no effect on me deciding to leave Christianity, it just is a really really hot button issue with me. I have been to hundreds of Churches and have yet to find one that I can't find fault in. I know my spirituality thrives without the negative effect of a church.Â Â Is this what turned you away from God/Christianity? cont.......

No. Ultimately it was my soul that led me to my need to have a lot of questions answered that the Bible couldn't do and after years of reading and growing, I just couldn't relate or have faith in a religion that I found so many flaws in and knew I couldn't consider myself Christian anymore.
