Losing His Religion
Matt Wisdom at Words of Wisdom just wrapped up a series called “Losing My Religion” (the whole series is linked from this post). Matt’s story involves many elements that I can relate to personally, and I know others can too. He talks about his intellectual development, life experiences, and questions and he talks about the inherent philosophical problems, political drama, hypocrisy, and other problems in the church.
Matt summarized the series with this:
Thank you all for joining me on this journey of self-discovery and spiritual formation. Over the past few weeks, I’ve written a total of 12 blog entries detailing the faith that I hold dear, from its legalistic beginnings to where I stand today.
The whole series is worth reading. Perhaps you could find time to read it on your lunch breaks at work, which is when Matt wrote and I read most of them.
