Having perused a number of blogs of formerly devout Christians who have deconverted it is apparent that much research, thought, and agonizing went into the decision to believe or not to believe. There are many aspects to consider – cosmology, evolution, the historicity of Jesus, the inerrancy or infallibility of the Bible, and the list could go on.
Knowing that deconversion is a process, I’m sure there were a number of things that went into your decisions of whether to continue in your faith or not. Having said that what I’d like to know is this:
Was there something that tipped the scales for you? Was there an aha moment that finally pushed things over the edge to unbelief or agnosticism? If there was, what was it?
If you decided to continue in faith, what was it that kept you from falling over that edge?
