MORE REASONS WHY...
 BACK to page 1                            I Left the Christian Faith:

   I just want to clarify, that although this page may focus more on the negative & contradictory side of the Bible, please understand that I recognize that there are some good parts in the Bible too. (Love your enemies, do good, forgive, etc.) However, "those parts" are obviously not related to my de-conversion... ;0)

"An Honest Search for Truth"

PART 1 , 2-1, 2-2, 3, 4, 5, 6-1, 6-2, 7-1, 7-2, 8
The video above is part 1 of an 8 part series called "An Honest Search for Truth."
This series is one of the best video presentations that one will find on-line that addresses some of the inconsistencies, contradictions & immoral acts condoned in the Bible. These reasons (among many others) help clarify why I can no longer accept the Bible as a sacred text or as a guide to true morality & goodness...let alone, ever except the Biblical view of God.
