I'm taking a serious detox from the people and teachings I listened to. From them, I learned so much nonsense and lost that first love I had for Christ.

I feel like they stole it from me with all the stupid, contradicting messages I listened to.

They made God extremely unlikable and unrealistic.

I don't need them to tell me what He is like.

"They shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest."

I'm sick of properly dressed, type A personalities who hold your imperfection in the light, cracking the whip, burdening you to be better, more organized, more productive, more efficient in your evangelism, more consistent in your spiritual disciplines.

I wanna bleed all of it out and experience the real Christ and his real message.

Hey Matthew,

I feel pretty much like you do. I've had your blog bookmarked for a while and check it every now and then.

If you want to chat with someone who is disillusion with mainstream christianity and is searching for the truth about God's grace, send me an email. I'll post using my gmail account so you can send an email there. If you don't see it, just post a reply and I'll email you, or I'll post my email here.

Just so you know, I am still a Christian, but I am sick of going to church and coming out feeling worse because I now have a list of 20 things I need to do in order to be better. I've been reading a few books by Andrew Farley and Steve McVey which have shown me another perspective of Jesus Christ and His finished work that I never considered.

God bless

Amen. When we dont see the fullness of our sin we dont see the depths of the Jesus and the cross.
