Saying Thanks

It has been a long time since I have posted on this forum, although I have read threads on here from time to time. I have reached a point where I have found some peace with staying active yet have many changed beliefs. I still have ups and downs regarding church participation, but the amplitude of t...

Re: Officially Out of the Closet with DW!

I'm so happy you're able to be open with her now. That is great news! I'm thinking also about what she shared: She then said that it was only guilt that was keeping her going to church. That if she found out that it wasn't true, it would relieve a huge burden on her. "I've realized that the guilt I...

Re: Officially Out of the Closet with DW!

Thanks everyone, it is because of the great advice I've received here that helped me be ready for the right opportunity. I'm very lucky, not only to have been given the perfect opportunity to open up to my wife, but even more lucky to have her in my life. She is being so understanding, more than I h...

Officially Out of the Closet with DW!

My apologies for the long post. DW and I talked while running some errands together today. She started reading through Deseret Book's catalog and saw John Bytheway's book "How Do I Know If I Know". She said she wanted to buy the book and I told her that yes, some thing can be confusing between what ...

Re: Can't believe it happened to me

I definitely agree that's helpful. Personally with the amount of science in favor of evolution, against a global flood, etc. I think that's the only approach that makes sense. The problem I'm having is that nobody in the church talks about these things as even possibly being allegorical. It's not o...

Re: Can't believe it happened to me

I just realized I never came back and said thanks and responded to the comments like I said I would. Hopefully it's not too late, but here goes. eyedempotent, I have presented myself as a believing member on this site but I also love science. I would be glad to discuss the gospel and science if you...

Re: As good as it gets?

Welcome!

Like many on this forum, your story is both familiar and different.

This forum has been a tremendous help to me (and still is) as I have transitioned my faith. Just knowing you are not alone is one of the biggest helps.

Re: Staying as atheist/agnostic

Hi eyedempotent, I would describe myself similar to SilentDawning and Ray Degraw. There was a time for me when listening to some things in church was quite irritating (don't misunderstand, some things still do, I just try not to focus on them). It can be difficult to sort through the things that are...

Re: Does anyone here ever actually meet up?

I think in-person meetings are a great idea. Anyone in Utah feel free to pm me.
