My Conversion Story

My Life Before Christ: For as long as I can remember, I was always involved with church, in fact, my earliest childhood memories are of singing in service, playing with friends, and Sunday School. I used to really enjoy the experience, but as we're all very aware of, things change, I grew up and my views changed with me, as well as my interests. I got into high school and started hanging out with the wrong crowd, drinking a lot, having sex, smoking weed, and just "living the life." Nearly a year and a half out of high school I was married, and every weekend, for years, consisted of hanging out with another married couple and their friends, getting wasted, and just having fun. Over time this all really began to weigh on me, I began to fall into depression and wonder if this was all really fulfilling to me, and if this is how I wanted to live the rest of my life. 
How I Received Christ: Well, late 2011 we all took a trip to Miami Florida for a New Year's celebration, …

Star Wars vs. Christianity

Well, it's National Star Wars Day, you know, "May the Fourth be with you" as they say; however, I say, "May the Father be with you." For what is Star Wars if not a pale imitation of Christianity? You have the light side with their Jedi, the Christians, ambassadors of peace, bearers of justice, and wisdom in all areas of life, drawing their power from the force, big 'G' God of all things. Then you have the darkside with their Sith or sinners who are unsaved, thirsting for power, hungering for wealth, wishing to destroy the Jedi, drawing their power from the force as well, the little 'g' god of this world, Satan. While the Sith want nothing more than to kill and destroy the Jedi order, Jedi simply want to save the Sith and convert them to good, meaning, that the Christians want to convert the non-believers to Christianity.

Breaking Point

My dearest Father, I feel something stirring within me that I haven't felt in a very long time, drive, motivation, and a goal. I can only imagine it being the Spirit, Your Spirit, moving inside of me, urging me to take action. I feel like I know what I have to do, I have a voice, I have a pen, I have a purpose swelling within. This is our world, You are our God, these people, Your people, don't have any idea what they're buying into. These demons, these powers, Satan and his forces of evil are moving swiftly, and I need to finally take my stand. No more hiding in the dark, no more fearing persecution, no more tip toeing around peoples feelings of pressure, for if I don't begin now, then I never will. The end is coming, the Lord is drawing near, I have to act, I cannot remain silent. Perhaps this is my calling, maybe this is my purpose, what I've been saved and protected for, and why I was chosen as a child of God. I know I'm not the hero of this story in life, …
