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?

I'm really new to nontheism, and while I feel pretty confident now that I/m not just being "rebellious against God", I do sometimes get the thought in the back of my mind, what if i'm part of the…Continue

I am very excited to find you. Have been searching for quite awhile, but could only find ex SDA that were still very fundamentalists; they were just doing it on Sunday and wearing wedding rings! I am fifth, and last, generation SDA and haven't believed in Adventism for the last 30 years, but the trek towards atheism took awhile and actually coming out as one is fairly recent as my family is still very religious and I still had to overcome the stigma associated with that word. Hitchens made me get over that and now I am very proud to be an atheist out loud! and yes I am a vegetarian. :)

Welcome anyway, that is just so long as you don't give us any flack for our Vegilinks vs. Big Franks debate :)

To be candid, I am not a former Seventh-Day Adventist, but Dorris posted a note here that I was interested in responding to so...!

You can always wait for tomorrow, but once it's done there's no taking it back. If you have any doubt about the timing, you should put it off. The time will come when you will either have nothing to lose or the potential loss would be greatly outweighed by the gain.

If you do go through with the sermon I would be happy to look over any notes you have. As a warning though I will be leaving for Yellowstone on Thursday and will have little connectivity throughout the weekend.

Dustin's advice was much more sane than mine. I don't think the situation has changed much although, if you're still in school, a laptop is a big deal financially. If you think there's a significant chance that you'll face problems financially because of family removing their support, I'd recommend not coming out until you're supporting yourself. Not sure what "writing examinations" means exactly where you're from, but if that's graduating from the last of school, you'll be out on your own shortly afterwards. Be safe.

Chickened out :( ...well, not exactly. Two things happened: I discovered early yesterday morning that one of the elders had chosen to swap sermon slots with me, so I've been rescheduled for next sabbath. Later in the day I was so tired from staying up late preparing for the sermon that I just didn't have the energy for a confrontation. I'm still trying to figure out if I should tell everyone as early as possible or wait, do the sermon (which I think would go a long way towards softening the blow) and then tell them afterwards, or if I should even come out at all. I have some..."investments" to think about - an allowance I don't want taken away for not tithing (though I don't do that even now - one of the first resolutions I made after losing the faith was never to give money to any religious organisation again) and a new laptop that was promised me I don't want to e denied out of fear I would "misuse" it...
