The Epiphany - Trapped in the Church

Posted on March 9, 2015 at 8:21pm 2 Comments

I was born into an Adventist family and was so convinced of it as a child because my parents taught it to me (seriously, that was my lack of logic) and was a pianist in the church. My father was First Elder and my mother is one of the three-person Music Department. However, as of 2010, I had my sincere doubts about the faith, and began seriously questioning.

Wow, how did you end up in a 2-year role within the church, when you're a nonbeliever?  Is your lack of faith a recent revelation or something?  Or do you simply enjoy organizing social groups, and it was something to do while you were stuck being involved with the church because of social pressures from family or whoever?

At least you're not actual clergy.  We have over a thousand — possibly multiple thousands — of priests and preachers in the US who have learned too much and realized that the Bible is bunk, but they're stuck going through the motions, because of financial entrapment or family pressures.
