Things You Were Wrong About - slh12280 - 03-28-2015

What are some things that you realized you were wrong about once you left religion?
-Gays are a threat to society
-Abortion is always wrong
-Republicans are always right
-Some people deserve to be tortured forever
-Women cannot hold certain roles
-When women dress in certain ways it takes away responsibility from men's actions
-Sex before marriage will ruin your life
-Creationism is scientifically backed
-Atheists have no morals
-Everything fits into neat categories of right and wrong
There is more but that's what I got for now.  Anyone else got anything?

All of the above, plus

Feminism is evil.
Sex ed encourages promiscuity.

Humanists only want selfish material gain.
An atheist is an atheist is an atheist.
Jezebel is a perfectly acceptable thing to call a women.
Women are evil temptresses.
Men only ever want one thing.
Education is evil - especially state education.
People without means should suffer the consequences of their poverty - even unto death.

Looking back, I can't believe how many evil things I believed, endorsed, and enforced. I'm ashamed.

The bible is inerrant.
The bible has all the answers to man's problems.
Science is anti-God and therefore false.
Evolution is of the devil.
Unbelievers will be cast into a lake of fire to burn forever.

Plus all that's been mentioned up-thread.

- Church counseling can properly handle complex problems and trauma in people, even better than secular fields which waste several years of academic study to understand the complexities of human psychology.
- All the creationist stuff already mentioned.
- That evolutionists are just trying to match everything they see to their own worldview.
- That atheists, or really anyone who doesn't subscribe to a religion has any reason to be morally integral.
- That with the exception of Christians, all religious people never really took their beliefs seriously. If they did, they would do their research and see how obviously false it was just by looking at the lack of historical evidence for their claims.
- That there is plenty of historical evidence for the accounts in the Bible.
- That Josh McDowell was a respectable scholar.
- That Job proved the existence of dinosaurs living with man.
- That people were going to hell because us Christians weren't following the great commission.
- That people were going to hell.
- That non-Christians don't like the message because they are naturally repelling the light, the good and true love.
- Speaking of true love, that non-Christians are literally incapable of true love. (I know... )
- That the emotional swaying in worship is the holy spirit, and that the emotional swaying in concerts is the devil.
- That God brings you back to him through suffering to remind you that you can't do anything without him. And God makes Christians suffer to improve their relationship with him. And atheists suffer on their own accord because they don't have hope. They don't have God. (Could it be that shit just happens to anyone and everyone?)
- That the lore of Satan dates back thousands of years.
- That gay people need to just stop being attracted to their same gender.
- When the above idea was debunked, then I thought that gay Christians should just live their whole lives without close, intimate companionship.

I'm still a believer, but this is terrifyingly close to the list of things I would make.

all of the above.


RE: Things You Were Wrong About - JimE - 04-07-2015

I was wrong about being right.


RE: Things You Were Wrong About - Scorpio - 04-07-2015

- God will get his tithe one way or the other
- You will never be happy unless you are in church. All the time.

Just about every Statement of Faith out there starts with claiming the bible as inerrant.
Just about every statement of Faith quotes II Tim 3:16 as proof text for inerrancy for all 66, 72 or 79 books.

Both are wrong. Both are false.

And yet, check any Statement of Faith. Today. They still quote II Tim 3:16.
