I was actually the exact opposite until recently.
I worked in ministry for about 10 years after Bible school. Then as I studied more, I began to question some of the fundamentals of my faith.
But I still loved my faith and every value and experience it was meant to account for.
My state of struggling and questioning just got too obvious to everyone around me, not that I ever challenged anyone or anything.
I was still working in ministry, but began losing friends.
And that distance between me and everyone else there only grew.
But I stayed at the church for years, working, studying, and hoping I was wrong . . . hoping something would eventually click, and I’d believe again as I had before, the same as everyone else.
I’m actually still hoping that will happen.
