I am at the Crossroads. I am about to make a turn, which will completely change my life in a new direction.
This new path, I take, has not been traversed by many, but I am willing to take the risks to see what awaits me.
My heart pounds with anticipation and anxiety as I search for signs or clues as to what lies ahead.
I see several and they all seem to give me fortitude. I turn back one more time and I see that I am leaving behind most of my friends and family who plan to stay on the same path that has been traveled for 2000 years. I now see that a few of my friends and several strangers have already made the turn. This is the path to TRUTH and REASON.
My head is now clear as I take my first few steps in this new direction. I feel a sense of liberation, for I have now shed my fears and confusions that have chained me for 38 years.
My new journey has just begun. I have now renounced Christianity.
