In the latest episode of A Matter of Doubt we interview Ed Suominen, author of An Examination of the Pearl. Ed recently left the Laestadian Lutheran Church after 40 years of belief. He cites learning about evolution as his primary motivation for losing his fundamental beliefs in Christianity. We discuss in detail what it was like growing up in, what some have called of this denomination, “a cult” and tackle the issue of original sin and seeking forgiveness for being human.
