Comparing Slices of Belief With Reality
This is a detailed walkthrough of a guy’s deconversion from Mormonism.
I can really identify with this. Being religious is like living in a whole different world. There’s a whole different side to everything that most people don’t see. You have characters in your life that you talk on a daily basis that reside “in the spirit realm”. First, you have a little nagging question. Then, it grows and grows, and the realization that your entire life could be a lie brings about total panic.
I sometimes wonder if the people who don’t understand why this subject such a big deal for some of us have never experience the jarring transition of having the reality of your whole life ripped out from under you.
