I'm still in the process of leaving "the fold". I stopped attending the church in 2013, but I'm looking into removing my membership and dis-fellowshipping myself to totally free myself from the…Continue

Ever wonder if you're part of the "shaking" and that maybe you're wrong?

@emery, i just made the realization that I don't believe anymore a little while ago, we still attend church (the last 2 sabbaths not though for different reasons), partly because my husband is still not really decided on where he stands, partly bc I work at the church school where our oldest son attends, and partly bc all our friends are there and they start asking questions of course if we don't go. I totally get the "its your entire social life" thing. that's my boat too.

Hi Caroline, glad to have you with us!

Hi all. I'm new here. It's so good to find a group for people who leave SDA behind and become atheists! I left the church in the mid-80s, after giving it 10 valuable years of my life. Looking back, those years seem like a kind of prison now.

I'm concerned that there are so many ex-SDAs out there who go on to other churches. While I get some of their reasoning - particularly those who want to stay christian - my reasons for leaving were significantly different and I don't think other churches cut the mustard.

Basically, I finally LEFT when I discovered that much of what I'd been taught was a load of bollocks (and that religion itself is false). Lies and half-truths. And god is nothing short of a sociopath!

But having said all that, it's great to connect here!

Love it!

Finally, one I could share on my actual profile, not just on my Antitheism page. This is is an absolute corker but only an ex Sevvie would understand! :)

Hi Emery, same here. I regularly attend the church with my wife and my daughter. Church has become a family already.

Comment by Michael Peterson on June 16, 2013 at 9:48pm

Hey Emery,

I am largely in the same boat as you.  I still attend church with my wife.  There are still people within the church that I consider friends, but I have been working on developing social connections outside of church.  It helps.

Comment by Emery Davenport on June 15, 2013 at 5:45pm
Thanks for the reply. I used to downplay the teachings. Now, when brought up, I try share corollary or contrasting teachings from other religions and modern culture (including science) that are just as, or more valid.

Adventism values family friendships and healthy living to a high degree - Some of it too much. but overall, I find those aspects of the lifestyle fulfilling. They are also share a common (not everyone of course) for the physical needs and well being of others. Their ADRA program, (while I am ambivalent at best about any church state arrangement) is all about helping people with their physical needs.

Sorry for the auto correct. I cannot see the screen where I type either.
Comment by Emery Davenport on June 15, 2013 at 11:29am
My wife and kids are still Adventist. Given that the church is pretty much our entire sicial life, i still attend church with them.
I presume there ae others in this same boat or have sailed these waters before? What is/was your method of coping or changing your social structure to ne more even and fair?

I don't drink alcohol too frequently, but on "Sabbath" morning, a stiff drink on the sly always helps.
