You turned from Christianity because you find a conflict between what the Bible says is right and what you feel is right? Am I understanding that, correctly?

I was young when I started questioning things. I was raped and sodomized starting just after I turned 10. I ended up pregnant and had a horrendous miscarriage. I was scared and thought it was my fault...a couple of years later, when talking to my church leader about it, I was guilted and shamed into believing that I lead this 55 year old man on in some way solely because I had a vagina.



I was told to re-read the Bible....to learn from the mistakes of Eve. After that, things really changed.

The topic was not why is Christianity good or bad. The question is would the removal of religion end all wars, and no it won't. The ultimate goal of most wars waged is power and money. If you removed all religion, those seeking power would just find another means to gain followers for their cause by appealing to another sensibility. Religion is not the cause of wars, it is simply a means to an end.
