Thank you for sharing your story, I feel the same way in that once I started critically questioning it the entire thing fell apart. I was indoctrinated as a child, basically since birth, and brought up in a southern baptist church. I truly believed as a kid because, well, that's all I ever knew. Around high school I started realizing I was mostly just going along with the motions without truly feeling anything supernatural, and upon talking with my youth pastor about this he suggested a bible-reading plan that would take me through the entire thing cover-to-cover in a year.

 

Ironically enough, that more than anything is what helped open my eyes. I identify so strongly with one sentence in this article in particular, "if God is real, and the Bible is his book, I want nothing to do with the bastard."
