To me this is a very sad story. People who lose their faith in God after entering the ministry. To others, a minister who doesn’t believe in God is a con man. There is sadness in that statement as well.
Below are two links to the strange world of The Clergy Project. It is a website for ministers who have lost their faith. The first is from The New York Times, talking about one of the leaders of the group. The other is a rebuttal from the president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. After reading these I’m sure you will have lots of questions that are difficult to answer.
