My brother is a born-again Christian and is very passionate about it, much the way you seem to be.<quoted text>
It is very interesting, men have within themselves to worship somthing.
Some woeship trees, cows etc...
I waa raised church of christ, told to be a good boy.
I tried to be good, but at age 10 I found my father dead, and my church going mom started going to bars, bringing home a different guy every other night. This lead me to believe that God wasn't real, and that there were religious people, and people like me who knew the truth. Lol
What I say is true, after looking up my favorite sin in the bible, and Not liking what it said, it did put me under holy ghost conviction.
Although I didn't know how to word it, It did lead me to ask "what if? "
If God was real, then I was in trouble!!!
But with sooo many different gods, which one was real, if any?
The night I was woken up, it was exactly 1:30 am.
Something I will never forget.
As this God was speaking to me, inwardly, Although no one can explain.
He let me know, that I was about to yeild to Him, or I was fixing to die and go to Hell, or spiritualy die, and He would never bother me again!
All I said was ok God ok, but you're going to have to help me!
After that I went to sleep, having a peace that passed all understanding.
I woke up a new man in Christ, just didn't know how to word it.
I went a few days later to buy a bible.
They asked me what kind? I said black!
they laughed and said no, what version? I said Holy.
they laughed again, and I was educated on All the different versions, or now say perversions of the bible.
Many follow their traditions, but I'm glad that I was in No church when I was saved!
Just like others couldn't put into words, when they tried telling me this, I now find myself in their position.
All I do know, is Jesus Christ saved my soul forever more the night I yeilded to His call.
He is not a respector of persons, and will save any, with the humble heart who ask.
If faith brings one peace and comfort, and there is no attempt to force it on others, no harm done.
It sounds as though you're having good results.
