Promises, False and Discovered

Reading Time: 9 minutes Now, you’d think that sensible salespeople would want to avoid making promises they can’t possibly keep.

Reading Time: 8 minutes I saw this one video the other day and thought it was really good–but something twigged in my memory about the band in it.

Reading Time: 10 minutes Thousands of people every day join the ranks of the ones who know. That number comes from Christian leaders themselves, who might have reason to misrepresent and inflate it–but I see no reason to think it’s not accurate.

Well, our ranks just expanded recently with the deconversion of the leader of a Christian rock band. I want to show you how his story fits in with the experiences of other people who’ve left Christianity (including me!), because next time we’ll be talking about why the tribe reacts to poorly to deconversions.
