My dad was raised SDA and defected when he was 17. We talked about it a lot before he died. He left because it was controlling and domineering and judgemental. And he couldn't make sense of some of the teachings, like that everyone lays dormant in the ground until Jesus comes again... it seemed... off to him.
He sought other religions fo ra long time and eventually was just content to form his own beliefs and live life how he wanted to.
And I just realized that I made a type spelling out the name of an Egyptian god lol. I'm leaving it, it's appropriate.
