Testimony: Born-again-christian

Lamar's testimony "Born-again-christian" on 2/19/2013, 10:41am...

My life was really messed up and confused in the past. I knew right from wrong and I knew how to behave. I just didn't have God by my side at all times. My parents didn't send me to church on a regular basis when I was a child. Plus, I had to figure out how to correct my mistakes on my own. Every time I screwed up, I figured I would never get myself out of the old trap. My parents would get on me for everything. I only went to church here and there when I got older but that stopped in a short period of time.

I never knew about Christianity when I was a child. I would lie a lot, I would masturbate, I would watch pornography, I would forge signatures, and I would hide things from my parents. My mom and dad had to get me to see that I would go no where in life by being selfish. Finally in 2012, I screwed up big time. I messed up royally with other people and my parents. I was criticized for every thing I did. Not only that, I would bring myself down by bringing up the incident over and over again. I finally realized that it was time for me to change for good.

When I ran into Nathan for the career without walls business, me and him talked in McDonald's. On that day, he said, "what do you know about Jesus?". I said that he can help people out. I went back home and did some soul searching by myself. I looked on the internet for the word repent. The computer talked about how you can be forgiven for all of your sins. I decided to do this from then on. After that, God drew me to his presence. He saved me in January 2013.

Now, all of my sins are forgiven and I can move on with my life. I have admitted I was a sinner, I forgave myself and others, I recognized Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and I asked Jesus to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. My salvation was confirmed in the month of January. I believe the truth about the Bible and I read it on a daily basis. I also pray on a daily basis as well. If I do mess up some then, I can ask God to forgive me and take away my guilt. But, I will always be in the Lord's hands forever. I definitely want to go to heaven and enjoy my days in the mansion with other children of Christ. My mission is to endure until the end of my life.
