Welcome to Religiously Challenged, my name is James. Thank you for visiting!
My blog was initially setup in August 2008 as a project to lash out at Christianity. At the time, I was just leaving a group of people from a darker side of Christianity. Unfortunately, I got innocently mixed up in a radical Christian sect. I felt hurt and betrayed by this group. More than anything, I felt shame for going down this path, but thanks be to God, I have repented.
Anyway, as time went on with this blog, I realized that writing mean things about Christianity was not helpful. Actually, I learned that pretty quickly in just a few posts. After that I switched directions and started posting stuff in a more personal direction.
Today, I pretty much write about things going on in my life. Rather it be my never-ending struggles with religion, too thoughts and struggles with asthma, or my new ambition of being an athlete.
Yes as the title might allude too, I do struggle in my spiritual life. It truly is unfortunate but that is the way it is. I get pulled in so many direction at times, I am not sure I know what I want to be when I grow up.
Please, do not be turned off by the title of this blog. Give me a chance, I am always open to making new friends.
P.S. On a further note, please do not get me wrong about my thoughts on Christianity. I might be having difficulties reconciling the hurt and the pain I suffered from my time as a Christian. Unfortunately, I had a bad experience and it in no way reflects on Christianity as a whole. There is just some bad people out there with bad ideas.
