John W. Loftus writes:
Whose fault would this be? Mine? I have honest doubts. Am I to be blamed because I couldnít understand Christianity? I tried with everything in me. I even spent several years earning three masterís degrees and studies in a Ph.D. program to figure my faith out. If I tried to figure it out and I wasnít supposed to try then maybe educated people donít have a chance to be saved? If, however, Iím just not smart enough to figure it out, then only intelligent people who study it out have a chance to be saved.
The above comes from Loftus' book From Minister To Honest Doubter: Why I Changed My Mind. Apparently he has been a counselor in more than one church and had devoted his life to Christianity; if someone like him can lose his faith, how do others manage to hold on to theirs?
