It appears that a large number of my friends who graduated the Evangelical Christian Wheaton College with me have left either Christianity entirely, or at least Evangelicalism. It’s not surprising, since must of us no longer live in our isolated Christian bubbles once we leave our Christian homes and schools (perhaps not for ministers and missionaries), and most don’t speak publicly about it because of their friends and family. I wonder what percentage of graduates have left! Who else? I invite you to come out of the closet and share your testimony.
