For those of you who have followed this blog for several years you are aware that when I deconverted from Christianity in the spring of 2014 I and my LCMS pastor did not part on the best of terms. I did not blame him for my deconversion but I was unhappy with him nonetheless.
I am happy to report that I and my former pastor, John Bombaro, have “buried the hatchet”. I no longer bear any ill will towards him. In fact, we have decided to exchange ongoing, but private communication. I doubt very seriously that he has any new argument for orthodox Christianity that I have not seen during my intense study of the subject in the last three years that could change my mind, and I don’t expect that my evidence against Christianity will seriously shake his faith. But polite, honest, open-minded discussion between persons of “opposing camps” can be beneficial to both parties. All knowledge is good.
