After reading your story, it’s clear to me that you were NEVER a Christian. Here’s how I know, and it should be obvious to you too, since you stated from the beginning that you didn’t get it, that you believed different from what Christians believed. I condensed your remarks to the few that showed why (above).
While others feel guilt over their sins, and humbly seek forgiveness, you didn‘t.
You don’t seem to be a sociopath, although you never mention loving anybody but yourself, which you did admit. You don’t mention ever putting anybody else’s welfare before yours, so you’re definitely lacking something, and you do clearly admit admiring yourself from an early age. Maybe your mother drank during pregnancy, or nobody ever showed you love during your early years. I don’t think you’re hopeless, but you have to stop being arrogant, worshipping your own ego, and look at how evil you’ve been to others before you can humble yourself and see that you really NEED forgiveness.
People: If you are fooled by everybody who claims to be a Christian, you should worry about yourself, and question what else you fall for.
I believe most people who think they’re Christians aren’t, but they don’t care enough about their own future to find out.
That’s why this is NOT a Christian country, and why the younger generations are not mentally healthy and surviving.
Christians are sorry they sin, and work to change and live a Godly life. They know that Christ paid for their sins when He died on the cross.
What else are you falling for? Ministers who deceive and mislead others just enough so that they miss the truth too?

4.“Can I share a little bit about my faith with you?” Too often, Christians presume we have something everyone else needs, without even knowing them first. Ask someone about their story, but maybe not the second you meet them. Christian evangelism often is the equivalent of a randy young teenager trying to get in good with his new girlfriend. When your personal agenda is more important than the humanity of the person you’re talking to, most people can sense the opportunism from a mile a way.

5.“You should come to church with me on Sunday.” It’s not that we should never invite people to church, but too much of the time, it’s the first thing we do when we encounter someone new. My wife, Amy, and I started a new church eight years ago, founded on the principle of “earning the right to invite.” Invest in people first. Listen to their stories. Learn their passions, their longings, and share the same about yourself. Then, after you’ve actually invested in each other, try suggesting something not related to church to help you connect on a spiritual level. If the person really gets to know you and wants to know more about why you live your life the way you do, they’ll make a point to find out. Then again, if you come off as just another opinionated, opportunistic Christian, why should they honor your predatory approach with a visit to the church that taught you how to act that way in the first place?

6.“Have you asked Jesus into your heart?” As many times as I’ve heard this, I still don’t really know what it means. why my heart? Why not my liver or kidneys? This also makes Christianity sound like a purely emotional experience, rather than a lifelong practice that can never entirely be realized. But yeah, asking someone if they’re engaged in a lifelong discipline to orient their lives toward Christlike compassion, love and mercy doesn’t exactly have the same ring to it.

7.“Do you accept Jesus as your personal lord and savior?” Again, this is not in the Bible. Anywhere. And for me, it goes against the whole Christlike notion of the suffering servant. People tried to elevate Jesus to the status of Lord, but he rejected it. So why do we keep trying? Plus, the whole idea of a lord is so antiquated, it has no real relevance to our lives today. Be more mindful of your words, and really mean what you say.

can anyone say "EL CHEAPO!!!"
just kidding; not my style, but i couldn't resist:)
Actually, I could buy really nice scented candles for much less than I spend on supplies. But I don't give my time & energy to make gifts for unappreciative people. The people for whom I make gifts are those who know that loving hands making something special for them is a much more thoughtful gift than something that can be purchased at the mall.

When has someone made homemade jelly for you? When has someone made homemade bread for you? I do that on a fairly regular basis for the people I love and care for. It's not quite the same as buying a jar of jelly and a loaf of bread at the store, which I presume is what you'd rather have.

8.“This could be the end of days.” This is one of my favorites. We Christians love to look for signs of the end of the world; we practically have an apocalyptic fetish. It’s like we can’t wait until everything comes to a smoldering halt so we can stand tall with that “I told you so” look on our faces, while the nonbelievers beg for mercy. Yeah, that sounds like an awesome religion you’ve got going there. Sign me up!

9. “Jesus died for your sins.” I know, this is an all-time Christian favorite. But even if you buy into the concept of substitutionary atonement (the idea that God set Jesus up as a sacrifice to make good for all the bad stuff we’ve done), this is a abysmal way to introduce your faith to someone. I didn’t ask Jesus to die for me, and if I’m not a Christian, I really have no concept of how that could possibly be a good thing. he whole idea of being washed clean by an innocent man’s blood is enough to give any person nightmares, let alone lead them into a deeper conversation about what Christianity is about.

10.“Will all our visitors please stand?” If someone finally is brave enough to walk through the doors of your church, the last thing they want is to be singled out. They probably don’t know the songs you’re singing or the prayers or responsive readings you’re reading. Depending on the translation of the Bible you use, the scripture may not make much sense, and they probably have no idea where the bathroom is. So why add to the discomfort by making them stand so everyone can stare at them? Also, calling someone a visitor already implies they are simply passing through, that they’re not a part of things. Instead of “visitor” or “guest,” try something less loaded like “newcomer.” Better yet, walk up to them, introduce yourself and learn their name.

No, they're still called Christians, Muslims and Jews. And they're still killing people all over the globe.

Christians killing 'witches' in Africa still counts as Christians killing in the name of their God. What a horrid god you worship if that's what he represents. I personally think that it's human hate, not a God who wants these things done.

Look at the Muslim countries. I'm sure you'd rather live there than here. Their God is the God of Abraham. You know, the same God you worship. Their word for God is Allah in their language, but it's the same God. You want to distance yourself from them but you can't. Their bullshit came from the same place yours did...the Jewish scriptures. Of course, just as the Christians misinterpreted those scriptures, so did Christians. The God of the OT isn't nice anyway, and you guys made him an even more evil character.

Go ahead with your pretense of being a preacher to prisoners. Go ahead and pretend to be a follower of Jesus. Nobody cares what you believe. They care that your kind are evil and kill other people in the name of your God.

It is one of the things I enjoy about writing...the opportunity to share thoughts that trigger those memories of others. I loved reading about "W"s sh't shoveling and his love for that old tractor and your about working in the tobacco fields. I think that a person's past and what is meaningful to them gives you a better insight in to who they are now.
Most of us want to move forward in life...but the past most often gives us the direction to do so. Our paths that we follow now began with those memories that we hold so dear.
We moved to the Mountains of N.C. and one of the interesting things I learned, was that many folks that lived in the area did not have power or running water in their homes up to the late 1970’s. A few homes in the area still did not have electricity running to their homes when we were there in the 90’s. We would go to the homes and do wellness checks during the winter time. When I asked a local why they did not have power, I was told that for some it was due to choice, and for others it was due to the cost of running the electric to the home from the main line at the road. Their homes did not look like the one in the link Water provided. They looked like typical smaller homes, but they were out in no mans land off of dirt paths that could loosely be termed a drive (We used ATV‘s during the winter to get in).
It is very easy in my opinion, to forget that some simply choose to live life without things that many of us take for granted. On 276 from S.C to N.C (or vise versa) at the ½ way point between the foothills of S.C. and the Eastern Continental Divide sign in N.C. there is an old iron hand drawn well off the side of the road, that many in the area still use to get fresh water. I tried to find a photo of the area online, I could not find the well but I did find one of my favorite spots to sit and unwind.
http://daveallenphotography.com/pretty_place_...
It is an open chapel, so there is no glass in that photo. I have to tell you that it was always amazing to sit up there on the ledge and look out over it all. The best time was during the winter, when you could only hike in. The photo says that it is a couple miles to N.C. but we lived about two city blocks from the camp, and we lived in N.C. so he is a little off in the mileage. If anyone finds themselves in the area, this is well worth a detour in my opinion (Do not attempt in the winter though). By the way, the silence is as breathtaking as the view. No cars, if you hit it right, no people…..hmmm, I think I am due for a road trip in the spring ;O)
