Nickolas, I had wanted to say something similar to your thoughts but didn't quite have the words together. Also, I wasn't sure I wanted to bother with Dan's "No, your wrong."
Dan's mind is indeed in turmoil. He finds it hard to believe that he was so thoroughly deceived that it is even possible that the Bible is not God's Word and that maybe God is not using Christianity or that God maybe doesn't even exist. It's just too overwhelming for Dan to believe that God let him wallow in the Jehovah's Witnesses which made his life worse.
I, like Dan, once believed that God personally directed me. I believed that He intervened in my life. I would not have believed it was a trick of the mind or, if that's too "crazy" sounding, a psychological problem. I know better now.
