...through a glass, darkly

I'm sorry you felt you had to destroy your library.I apologize so I should explain.
About 6 years ago I burned every bible and resource book I've had since the early 70's. I did so because I was tired of being called a heretic, an evil apostate who is spreading poisonous heresy, etc., and told I'm not a Christian. John MacArthur's teaching condemning non-Trinitarians, and the multiple, judgmental people on other forums who condemn those of us who flat out reject the man-made doctrine of Trinity, drove me over the edge. (as well as my AOG cousin who pastors a local church) I was DONE - So I burned my entire library including 4-5 bibles - probably $2,500 to $3,000 of books if I were to replace them today.
It took a while, but since I've disconnected myself from Christians, I'm at peace. That's why I should have never posted here. I don't want to rekindle any of those emotionally stressful ill feelings. Trinity is a very sore spot with me because Trinitarian's judge and CONDEMN millions of non-Trinitarians. One brother condemning the other over a man-made doctrine that took the bishops of Rome about 300 years to develop - then they murdered thousands for rejecting it. That is anti-Christ.
Quite honestly, I see nothing good in this debacle of a religion called Christianity. Trinity and pre-trib are abominations. Christians can't agree on anything so I'm OUT. I still believe but to maintain any kind of peace and sensibility - I need to stay away from "Christians."
The sad thing is Muslims have a better concept of God than Christians.
I'm sad to hear about the destruction of books, the loss of your investment of money and time, but even much more so about how horribly terribly wretchedly MISERABLE AND AWFUL you had to have felt to feel driven to such actions.
I wish you could have found a more supportive world somewhere, and that you could have had a better experience than the wretched mistreatment heaped upon you by all those people who couldn't tolerate an opposing viewpoint.
I wish I could say more. But I can only shake my head at the unconscionable actions of people whose words drove you to the brink.
