I have ex Christians, not the ones who declared that there is no god like atheists, but those who have left Christianity and really have a lot of issues with some of what the Bible says. one of these ladies I know of has a gay son that she used to be absolutely a shame and disgrace and criticize and thought he was going to hell; was in agony that her son was going to hell. Spoke on a lot of what really bothers her in Scripture, and let me tell you, some of it anyways was quite disturbing and I do not blame her. This woman was caring for her dying previous abusive and hateful either boyfriend or ex husbanvd. she believed in forgiveness and being charitable to others and helping relieve the pain of others. but there are many non Christians who are passionate about easing sorrow and suffering which in Matthew 25 was the basis of those who were saved for serving Christ in his suffering and Easing his pain. the problem is many of these people have come to feel strongly that religion is very often causing more suffering.. I know that I have experienced firsthand the truth of that statement.
