Hello, my name is Peter Kimball Chamberland, and I've rejected and continue to reject anything to do with Jesus Christ in my life whatsoever. To make things short and sweet, I was lost but found, was blind but now I see.
Image via WikipediaA brief history: I was raised in a Mormon church by loving parents who never physically abused me, but they did neglect me and physiologically abuse me by teaching me false principles and beliefs, I was going to give them the credit for being nice people and say that they never meant to do this, but in reality for various reasons I think that in all actuality they knowingly and willingly did so.
After the Mormon church I became an evangelical Christian, which was like jumping from the frying pan into the fire. I was nothing but depressed my whole Christian life. I was faithfully Christian for 5 years attending evangelical Christian churches of all types sometimes even three times a week. My roommates for two years were all evangelical christians of some sort, and all that happened during my five years of Christendom was being rejected by the girls and boys as a non-popular kid because I don't fit their ideals of good looking or successful and I had mental issues because I was clinically depressed attempting suicide at least once a year.
When I left any concept of Jesus Christ behind from my mind in 2009, my life dramatically got better mentally, emotionally, and physically. I actually am a little "too healthy" and gained about 40 pounds in the past couple years from all that delicious food I've been eating. Yes I am a glutton. I suppose I'm somewhat average at 6'4" and 240 lbs though...
Anyways I'm more happier now about life than I've ever been before. I'm not an atheist, I've dedicated my life to the path of Wicca. Some would claim that is equally mentally disturbing as the Christian faith, but I don't believe so and I've really learned not to give a shit about what others think if its negative, even if they're atheists.
I haven't been to a Christian church at all since 2007. 2008 was a rough year, but 2009 brought blessings of much needed structure and counseling to get over all my depression. Now I am free.
There are so many ways that I can reject Jesus Christ that I can not even begin except for a joke I heard recent;y: What is White, Sticky, and moves across the sky at a thousand miles per hour? The coming of the Lord Jesus.
Offensive? Yup. Blasphemous? Yup. Am I going to hell? No, Christians invented hell. That's where they all go.
My advice to anyone seeking out spirituality is to be a free thinker and make decisions for yourself in the best way possible that will benefit you in all ways, and hopefully those around you.
My name is Peter Kimball Chamberland, and I reject anything to do with Jesus Christ.
