For me, working up the guts to disbelieve in my teens was hampered by the idea (hammered into me by church leaders) that unbelief is the greatest evil and doubt is a tool of the devil, therefore to be righteously ignored.


Yes. If it makes perfect logical, rational sense, then it must be the Devil.

Nice move there Church leaders.

"The Truth of the Church lies in paradox."

"So, you mean it must be true because it doesn't make sense? That doesn't make sense."

"That is the Devil talking son. Now help me get this stain off the front of my trousers."
