"I stopped believing in God after pastoring a megachurch"

I don't know if this is worth commenting on, but it's getting lots of buzz:

A bit more background:

I didn't know anything about her or her husband until I saw the video. I don't move in that world. 

There's a reason she's a successful entertainer. She's very charismatic. 

Her story reminds me of Into the Wild (2007). The movie about an idealistic young guy who thought it would be a great idea to live in the Alaskan outback. He had no survival skills. Did no research. Didn't ask the locals for advice. So he died in the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness. He died in the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness.

Lisa Gungor and her husband have been on a journey without a map. No theological foundation. Just coasting on emotion and music. 

Well, life can be very unkind to people who are unprepared. It helps to have answers before you need them. 

Their bad theology, the make-believe and wishful thinking, wasn't up to the challenge of real life. Life can be brutal. 

You need to lay a solid foundation in theology and theodicy. Lisa and her husband were just reacting to events. Their beliefs change when events change. They had no benchmark.
