In 1948, a series of lectures was held in the Fort Worth, TX area.  The theme was "Why I Left..."  Each of the ones presenting lectures (with the exception of two) had left their denomination in order to simply be an un-denominational Christian.  The other two spoke on how they left (1) the world and (2) the anti-class position (the belief that it is a damnable sin to have Bible classes on Sundays).
  • Why I Left the Christian Church (Floyd A. Decker)
  • Why I Left the Presbyterian Church (Horace W. Busby)
  • Why I Left the Baptist Church (Grover Stevens)
  • Why I Left the Methodist Church (Claude B. Holcomb)
  • Why I Left the Nazarene Church (Waymon D. Miller)
  • Why I Left the Lutheran Church (Claude Guild)
  • Why I Left the World (Luther Blackmon)
  • Why I Left the Catholic Church (Joe Malone)
  • Why I Left the Anti-Class Position (L.W. Hayhurst)

From the Uploader
If you are a member of one of the denominations mentioned above, please read those chapters with an open mind and an open Bible.  These are the stories of real people who left those denominations because they were concerned about being right with God.  However, if you aren't willing to have your faith challenged, don't download this module.

If you want to read about people who commit the sins of presumption, despair, obstinancy, etc, because of misunderstanding, misattribution, anti-intellectualism, conceit, carnalism, rebelliousness, etc. this is the book for you. The rest of us would do well to actually research and pray to find the reasons to STAY with our faith (whichever flavor strikes the soul for you.)


Undoubtedly, each discipline has its reasons for why things are the way they are, and it behooves us as lay-people to discover those reasons, rather than install ourselves as the highest authority directly (without actually doing the necessary work to become such an expert) and thereby rationalize to ourselves our own carnal desires to abandon our principles and beliefs.


Don't fool yourself. If you want to turn your back on long-held beliefs, just do it, no need to pretend to need justification.

The above commentor apparently didn't read the book, because none of the people who wrote the book fit any of the categories mentioned.
