Perhaps it is time you faced the fact that you were educated by an institution with a long tradition steeped in falsehood – this even according to your standards. A tradition which developed the system of seizing an isolated passage or two from scripture – usually a passage which does not directly address the issue at hand – and establishes an entire theology on the non-contextual interpretation – while ignoring pages and pages of scripture which directly deal with the issue at hand. (For example the tradition of replacement theology or the Calvinist theology by which repentance plays no part in the atonement process.) I believe that you are capable of freeing yourself from this influence – but the first step is recognizing the influence and acknowledging its effects.
