Subject: [General Question] Can you help me be a freethinker?
Your motto is "Believe in God? We can fix that." So, here's my story:
I grew up in a conservative Christian home, but I am currently having
doubts about my faith, so I've been considering leaving it behind. My
doubts stem from my knowledge of scientific facts, such as evolution, as
well as finding many contradictions and atrocities in the Bible. I had
briefly "came out" to family by telling them of my doubts, but later told
them to their relief that it was only temporary. At least I thought the
doubts were temporary. They still continue. But I also fear that I could
be wrong, and that my faith may be true. I constantly fear hell, and I
consider the slight possibility that the devil may just be decieving me, as
according to the Bible, is the devil's favorite hobby. Is there any way I
can remove these fears? Can I be convinced that hell and the devil aren't
real? My mind has great potential, so the ability to think freely for
myself is imperative.
