Why I Left the Revival Fellowship
This site is not a collection of bitter ramblings or the sorry tale of someone who lost their first love or stopped overcoming. Rather, this site is the collection of thoughts, formatted as questions, that lead Jordan Hillier away from The Revival Fellowship and ultimately Christianity.
Since its founding in 1995, the Secular Web has grown from a small site spawned in a dorm at Texas A&M University into the most comprehensive freethought resource on the Internet. It offers thousands of essays, reviews, and critiques, covering everything from articles of general interest to scholarly papers by prominent non-theistic philosophers, scientists, historians, and others.
John Loftus, the man behind this blog wrote, "My motivation for debunking Christianity on the web is pretty much the same as any Christian apologist, except I don’t do it to glorify God, and I’m not taking anyone to heaven with me. Christian apologists want to know that their beliefs are true, and one good way to do that is to get in the ring and argue for them. In doing so, they learn things and find better arguments to defend what they believe. This describes me too."
The ExChristian.Net blog exists for the express purpose of encouraging those who have decided to leave religion behind.

Online Articles and Essays
Beyond Born Again: Towards Evangelical Maturity by Robert M. Price
Beyond Born Again was perceptive, witty, scholarly and personal all at the same time. His criticisms of Evangelical apologetics are as good as (and often better than) anything written by the atheist community, and his sense of logic is equally matched by his sense of humour. In short, the book was simply delightful to read.
Glossolalia by The Skeptics Dictionary
When spoken by schizophrenics, glossolalia are recognised as gibberish. In charismatic Christian communities glossolalia is sacred and referred to as "speaking in tongues" or having "the gift of tongues."
The Lowdown on God's Showdown by Edward Babinski
Many evangelical Christians tremble with excitement at the thought that they are the "last generation" and "Jesus is due to return soon." Others are less excitable and propose that Jesus' "return" might still be far off. Neither view appears to be correct judging by the plain words of the New Testament - words that armies of theologians have spent centuries trying to divide up and "conquer," or in this case, "explain away."
