I have suffered from and am recovering from a powerful delusion.
I learned some mistaken reality-processing skills from infancy through childhood and into adulthood.
I learned that the church to which I belonged was the one true church.
I learned that the Bible was true, uniquely and wholly.
I learned that Jesus Christ was my savior, that I would be going to heaven as one of God's few chosen people that everybody else would be lost. This knowledge was my sacred responsibility.
None of these teachings are based upon reality.
