Ezekiel 37:1-10 “The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, 'Son of man, can these bones live?'

Why you left your religion.
Growing up as a Protestant, going to Sunday school and church I learned a lot about Christianity and the bible. I paid attention but never really took anything I learned very seriously. As I grew up I became interested more in the history of Christianity that in the faith of it. The more I learned the more I could see that Christianity and all religions were created by humans throughout the ages. So here I am with the rest of you who have gotten here through our own personal ways and experiences.
