It's not because I doubt that I don't feel safe in church, it's because I fear how the church will react to my sincere doubt and honest questioning.
I have been called a skeptic, cynic, heretic, rabblerouser (my personal favorite) and all kinds of other names. I have been asked to leave churches, asked to keep quiet, and more often than not, censored myself in "church settings" and around "church people." I have lost friends. I have alienated others and been alienated by yet others.
All for the "sin" of doubt.
