My beliefs have changed. In fact, I find it difficult and often unhelpful to use the word “belief” because of all the baggage that comes with it.
I compare the deconstruction of our beliefs and faith to a roller coaster ride. For me, the beginning is the most terrifying and I want to get off. By the end of it I’m thinking I want to get back in line and ride it again.
This was my experience with deconstruction. When it truly began in earnest, it was absolutely terrifying. However, I not only got used to what was happening, but began to appreciate it and even enjoy it.
Why? Because I could see I was coming to a place of joy and peace of mind. Finally! True story!
So, yes, my thoughts about Jesus have changed. Radically. I’m healthier for it.
No, I can’t get into it now.
