The Testimony of a Sinner Growing up in Southeast Tennessee, I went to church, Sunday school classes and Vacation Bible School with my parents and was taught the beliefs about God I hold precious today. I was taught from the Holy Bible to respect all people regardless of their religious beliefs, color of skin, looks, age, wealth, or nationality. The people who taught me the word of God took the teaching of the truth to children, adolescents and adults very seriously and taught me the word of God using the Holy Bible (John 8: 31-32 ). They also took the following of Jesus Christ seriously and lived and live their lives as an example of someone who followed Jesus. I first accepted Jesus Christ as my savior when I was eleven years old however going into my mid adolescence I did not at all times act as a Christian which means that in reality, I did not act at all like a true Christian. I was a hypocrite in my thoughts and actions and it lasted from my mid adolescence to later into my adult life. Even though I knew and understood what I was doing was wrong and against Jesus' teachings, I did it anyway just because I wanted to do it. I wanted to do it because I enjoyed doing what I wanted to do when I wanted to do it. I wanted to do what I wanted to do when I wanted to do it and that’s what I did. I did not listen to anyone’s advice as I knew what it was I wanted to do and they did not. So I did what I wanted to do whether or not it hurt someone or not because I at that time did not care about anyone but me; I did not even care about God’s will for me. Although I did not plan to do so, along the way I know that I deluded the truth to many people around me hearing my words and seeing my actions because I was deluding the truth to myself. The delusion of truth I created around me caused turmoil in my thinking and the longer I let myself think what I was thinking was true, it was only true to the point which I could suppress my conscience thought because deep inside I knew that I was living in a self-made delusion yet I just didn’t want to admit to myself that I was; and so, I did not admit it to myself. I did not admit it to myself because I wanted to continue to believe that what I was doing was okay to do. I kept justifying what I was doing to...
What does it mean, Faith in Christ Jesus? To fully understand what it means to have faith in Jesus Christ, one must do the whole hearted never ending seeking of, finding and following absolute truth to experience it for one’s self. Merely reading about someone’s faith in Christ Jesus and what it means to follow Christ Jesus the only begotten Son of God comprises by far more than I or anyone can ever express to you in this or any article. Although you as a non-believer may not understand, this article however, is the means in which I’m using to give to you an insight into my life following the teachings of Jesus Christ and my faith in His being the only savior of my and your sins giving to those who have faith in Him the promises made by God to us in the Holy Bible which is eternal life with the infinitely pure love of God. So what does ‘faith in Christ Jesus’ mean? Unlike what many nonbelievers think it isn’t ‘blind faith’ into something which has no evidence. There is more evidence that points to Jesus’ existence, life, teachings, death and resurrection than evidence about anyone else in history. The Holy Bible too has passed the test of time and scrutiny. Within that evidence, evidence exists that point to Jesus being crucified on a cross and of His resurrection from death with eyewitnesses’ testimonies from resources in addition to that within the Holy Bible’s New Testament. Almost two thousand years the evidence of Jesus Christ has stood the test of time proving to be true again and again. Faith in Jesus Christ also isn’t faith in a ‘myth’ in that the timeframe and the facts do not lend themselves to the needed extended timeframes and exaggerations that which myths are derived. This article however is not what ‘faith in Christ Jesus’ is not. This article is what ‘faith in Christ Jesus’ is and you can if you choose, research and seek the truth about the facts as I have to discover the truth for yourself and not just take my word for it. You can start your search at Finding Truth Today FAQ where you will find many resources to assist you in your honest quest for truth. Truly placing one’s faith in Jesus Christ means a lot of changes in one’s life. The largest change in my life was the way everything brightened up. Not only the way I looked at things, the way I saw everything cleared up and it all fell together in beautiful order. My thinking became uncluttered, ordered and clearly allowing me to know the truth. I have no worries because I know that God has plans for me to...
