It is almost 17 years since I first called myself a Christian, since then a lot of water has flowed under the religious bridge. My summation of it all now is this.
I have met some wonderful people, and I have met some people who made me think of Jesus.
I have met a lot of people who are fearful, who follow God because they are scared not to, they are running from hell.
I have met many people who manipulate other people and who love people in the hope that it may put extra fuel in their heaven bound train.
I have met many people who are just simple hypocrites, who have an outward religious appearance, but simply do not bear much resemblance to Jesus.
I am not saying I have it all sorted, but I do know that what I see in Christianity is not the good news that Jesus spoke about, it is a man made pagan religion.
So if you do not mind I am leaving, I am no longer claiming Christianity as my religion or faith, no thanks, I was made free, I intend staying free, see you heaven if you make the list.
