My worst experience was realizing that I had wasted 41 years of my time, energy, and money believing and supporting a lie. I'll never get any of that back. I assumed the Bible made sense but I just didn't understand it well enough to understand it. The more I studied it, the less sense it made. The more I learned about the life and times of Christ and the Roman Empire, the more evident it became that modern Christianity was invented by the Emperor of Rome to suit his needs. Without him Christianity would be a foot note in history. Pre-Roman Christianity was was even less believable than post-Roman Christianity. What a waste.
