    My brothers, my sisters

    I come here today not to tell you of our Lord, or to convince you of what you already know in your hearts. I come here because yours and my God reached out to me, when darkness threatened to swallow me whole.

    Disillusioned by Christianity for many years. I did not return to him of my own effort, but by his invisible power that no person can arrange. I willingly went with him, this time, not for the sake of heaven, nor for a fear of hell.

    But for the fact that without true spirituality, all I have is a materialistic void.

    Welcome!

    We should call you Solomon...he did something like that: Had everything the world could possibly offer, but all said and done, considered it all to be "vanity" (nothing).

    Hi BoD
    Christianity may disappoint us because it's a Body made up of human beings.
    No one is a perfect Christian.

    However, Jesus IS a perfect Christian .
    Depend on Him...not on Christianity.

    This is merely the past, this is not how I feel today. Otherwise I would not have open the door to life.

    Same here. Would you say that you did not choose Him, but that He chose you? Then you answered Him?

    As Joel Osteen says, "There is only one way to God, and that is through Jesus. But, there are many ways to Jesus."

    Do you believe God decides who will be saved and who will not?

    No, we just answer the door or not. But it's all Gods work, and he won't stop knocking until the day we expire.
