Greeting DouglasThank you for your post, let me comment on it and lets compare with how we see scripture in the light of our posts.Your quote:
20 years ago, I said the sinners prayer, started hanging around a new crowd of friends, started attending church, started acting moral, wanted the praise of men, but still was sinning. I can remember getting water baptized and the next day went back into sin. Huh? Is someone who professes faith in Christ, going to continue in sin, ? I think not.
God doesn't counsel us, repair us, patch, us, He executes us and buries, us and resurrects us and gives us the ability to say NO to sin and YES to righteousness.
These messeges are a must listen to...True and False Conversionshttp://www.livingwaters.com/listenwatch/TrueFalse.zipHell's Best Kept Secrethttp://www.livingwaters.com/listenwatch/hbks.zipAlso found here on SISomebody else saying whether my conversion was real or not is not negotiable. We can juggle symantics all day long, but I know this, I once was blind, but now I see. Listen to the messeges and test to see if what Ray Comfort is saying is Gospel truth. Please don't take offence to this reply, sometimes written words are difficult to see tone and intent. :-D I don't often post on the forum here so I may or may not check the replies. If anyone has any questions you can certainly email me. I thank God for you all and I thank God for this ministry. God bless.Miles Lewis
Miles, your testimony is near the same as mine. I am still so suprised at how many people tell me I 'was saved' when God tells me otherwise. My Pastor still disagrees with me.My heart had never broken, I knew not sin and had not repented, all I had done was say a prayer and then do courses and attend church to understand God. About a year after 'saying the prayer' I listened to Ray Comforts Hell's Best Kept Secret and True & False Conversions. Then I finally understood what sin was, my hopeless state before God, my desperate need for a saviour, my heart broke, I cried out to God for forgivness, and at that point I was sold, paid for at the cross.Praise God for ministires that are willing to preach the true gospel and eternally save souls!!Nath.
