Why Some Fundamentalist Christians Don’t Like My Book

Posted in Doubt at 10:29 am by admin

It seems that many radical fundamentalist Christians are disappointed when they read Divine Betrayal.  I guess it is because of the way I have questioned my father’s interpretation of the Bible, and the fact that I no longer share that fundamentalist point of view. If I should be so inclined to write a sequel to this book, it will certainly include how I came to believe in Jesus and my personal experiences as a Christian. Of course at the conclusion of Divine Betrayal, I am only eighteen years old—the fact is: I was full of doubt and I questioned my God; I questioned every part of my fundamentalist upbringing.

I was raised to believe that to question an elder’s interpretation of the Bible, the Word of God, is a sin!  But, I am proud to say that my faith in God is even stronger and more beautiful because I found my own way. My faith was not taught and learned, it is my gift, it was born from my childlike curiosity to ask questions.  Every child of God has doubt, but how many actually talk about it and are open to share what that means.

Have you ever doubted your faith?  Did it bring you to a closer relationship with God?  I am curious to see what other people think.  I invite you to comment and share your own experiences!!

    Hi Graceann,
    Initially, I was sorry to hear that you turned away from your Pentecostal upbringing. All in all, though, it does not matter and our denominations should not in and of themselves be a sacred cow. I choose this denomination because of the wonderful and full out worship. Not everyone has the same desire. Some people are shy, and some outgoing. What we should be concerned about is not denomination, but sound Biblical doctrine. The basic facts of our belief. We must be careful not to be deceived, and read the word of God daily. I loved your book, and yes, it gave me more to think about than just surface issues. Good topic here! Rhonda

    Thank you for such a fantastic blog. Where else could anyone get that kind of info written in such a perfect way? I have a presentation that I am presently working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

  12. create forum profile Says:

    What I wouldnt give to have a debate with you about this.  You just say so many things that come from nowhere that Im pretty sure Id have a fair shot.  Your blog is great visually, I mean people wont be bored.  But others who can see past the videos and the layout wont be so impressed with your generic understanding of this topic.

  13. dog parvo Says:

    Have you ever considered adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more entertained? I mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I’m more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful well let me know how it turns out! I love what you guys are always up too. Such clever work and reporting! Keep up the great works guys I’ve added you guys to my blogroll. This is a great article thanks for sharing this informative information.. I will visit your blog regularly for some latest post.

    Thanks for your comment. I don’t see how we could debate this topic. First, have you read my book, Divine Betrayal? In my blog I wrote about my personal experience. I’m sure you have had a different experience. In no way have I tried to impose my experience on you. I agree, my blog shows only a “generic understanding of this topoic.” It is simply my personal experience with radical Fundamentalism.

  15. dog parvo Says:

    Thanks for taking this opportunity to discuss  this, I feel strongly  about it and I take pleasure in learning about this topic.  If possible, as you gain information, please add to  this blog with new information.  I have found it extremely useful.

  17. dog parvo Says:

    Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it’s nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.
