New Kid at School

New Kid at School
Hello, My name is Jacob and I'm an atheist. wsh! That feels good to say.
My story isn't all that unique, growing up in a Holy Roller-Pentecostal Home I wasn't allowed to watch most TV Show's and Listen to most music. My entrainment Included Mostly Bible Man and terribly animated christian cartoons, which made me feel socially awkward for the early part of my childhood.

As I got older, My Family Would send me to bible camps and seminaries to further my brain washing (at least they thought) and help me get closer with gawd. I got pretty good at the bible stuff memorizing verses, leading prayers, the christian lingo. I got so good that I became a young evangelist. I used to preach at a different church every month. I would lay hands and people would speak in tongues, I would Blow into the mic and people would be slain in the spirit. I was like a young Benny Hinn all I needed was the white suit.

Even at peak of my evangelistic career, I knew it was mostly bullsh*t but there was still a part of me that believed this lie. I mean the same girls that would speak in tongues and dance in spirit, would make-out with me before the service. so it couldn't have been legit right? Well, What changed my life completely was simple dead pan statement "God sacrificed Himself, To himself, to save us from himself. Praise His Name." I would call it the Straw that broke the Christian camel's back, for me it pointed out the ridiculousness of Christianity and religion as a whole. I began to read the bible with a critical mind it, it was somewhat of a "mental rebirth".

Ever since than I left the religion sh*t behind and I'm a new person.
I will soon apologize to the christian people I wronged and also come out
"the christian closest" to my family. It will be a rough road but I gotta' do it.
Thanks for reading. Would love to hear from ya'll. Stay Frosty.

Welcome , and congratulations for leaving the dogmatic prison.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great
