I accepted Christ as my Savior when I was eight years old and was baptized around Easter, 1959. My grandfather was a preacher and my father also was a preacher. So yes, I grew up in a Christian home yet I still took responsibility for my own decision.
However, it was many years (almost 50) before I accepted Christ as Lord of my life. During those 50 years, I was a carnal Christian. But God, through his patience and grace, kept me from stumbling. He sent me to different denominations to show me the differences and also the similarities – Baptist (American, General Conference, and Southern), Presbyterian, and Assembly of God. He sent a blessed wife to me who also is a Christian. Together, she and I, have instituted a home church in our home and even though it is only the two of us now, we expect it to grow – especially with the current political climate in America. God sent various teachers into my life to keep my faith growing and vital – Hal Lindsay, Dr. Gene Scott, Chuck Missler, Chuck Smith, Melissa Scott, Tom Horn, etc. I attended Logos Divinity School, studying for a Master’s in Biblical Studies. Unfortunately, I was not able to complete the course of study because of life situations (unemployment, relocation, cancer, etc.). I have resumed my studies at TGSAT and have now completed my studies for the DBS degree.
Finally, just after 9/11/2001, I discovered (was it really that ‘I’ discovered or did He let me know?) what I was missing – the Lordship of Christ in my life. I accepted His Lordship and my life has changed – personally, professionally, and spiritually. My life is more focused, Christ-centered, and purposeful.
My focus now is not on me but on how others can see Christ in me, how I can share Christ with others, how I can be a light for others to see Christ. I see so many worldviews that aren’t biblical, so I started a website where I can express the true meanings of the biblical doctrines while not expounding on the heretical counter explanations – Biblical Studies: Understanding God’s Word
