Just like you I gained my testimony of Christ through "the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob...IN a Baptist Church". I have never prayed to any other God nor will I ever.<quoted text>Yes... there are splits in the church.... I wonder who profits from these splits???
I know Satan doesn't care how one gets to hell, just that they go!
You do have a compelling testimony, but so have I, and it stems from the God
of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as when I heard of God, and Jesus the first time....
IN a Baptist Church... I believed in my heart it was true!
The One important piece of information that I lacked was...
The Tools, and Tactics that Satan uses to drag us to hell, and thus suffered evil
for the next forty years...
Drug using, and dealing, multitudes of sexual perversions... and almost murder!
Ending with an arrest in 04 for domestic violence, I was booked
04/04/04 @.04seconds after midnight....
I spent the next 40 days, and nights getting to know Jesus again!
Do you know what Satan's biggest tool is???
Watch the videos I've posted, and understand!
I guess the difference between you and I is that I noticed all the confusion between the different sects of the Protestant/Baptist Church and took my prayers and search a little further. I never settled for a piece of truth, I wanted to know it all.
I have always said that organized religion has been a detriment to God's plan and you have no idea how many times I have tried to deny my testimony of the LDS Church but it can't be done. Besides that, it answered all my questions that no other church even seemed to want to discuss. On top of all that, I now know exactly where I came from, exactly why I am here, and exactly where I am going when I leave this mortal life behind and that brings a peace I have found no where else.
Your testimony touched my heart (thank you) and I am so glad you have such a strong one, it will allow you to see God. I could tell you what happened to me on 08/08/88 around 8:00 am. but that's another story.
Thanks for the offer of the video but I have probably seen every anti Mormon argument there is. With me it's like when Christ was talking to Peter and He asked Peter if he knew who He was and Peter said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God", Jesus then said, "Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven".
That's how I got my testimony of the gold plates and the confirming truth of Jesus Christ being hidden away unadulterated. It came from my Father in Heaven in an answer to a very sincere prayer. The Book of Mormon is another witness of Christ but I can understand that those bound by a closed cannon of scripture aren't allowed to look at it. I have found out that those who do read it almost always say how they were lied to about it's contents. No wonder we convert so many, they want to know more about Christ and many find out they were lied to.
God Bless you too.
