There’s an article going around, available here, in which a woman writes about her fall away from conservative Christianity. Once a keen teen, she came to grief when studying religion at Yale – grief, literally, it seems; though she no longer believes in Christianity, she genuinely misses the relationship she once had with Jesus. But, she says, that’s where her study of the Bible led her. Her academic education in the Bible convinced her that it was anything but the Word of God. How sad.
However, I think there are a number of things we could comment on about Jessica’s account of the journey to her current view: that the Jesus she once knew is, basically, imaginary, and the Bible not true.
