My, oh my, how time flies!!
Here itâ€™s now November and Iâ€™m just now getting back.
I am pleased with the input thatâ€™s coming from those who visit, and I hope that they are getting something out of the information.
In trying to make myself write down what I feel is in my Faith Story, I donâ€™t want to drag out any redundant blabber.
I noticed a reply in part 1, which said what if Iâ€™m wrong.
Well Iâ€™ve been wrong about so many things, but I always keep coming back to my roots in my beliefs. Its kind of hard to put into words by what I mean by this, but here we go.
After being brought up in a religious based family, notice the carefully placed words. Now, donâ€™t get me wrong. By no means was the family a totally functional family. We (my sister and I) knew from the get go what the difference from right and wrong. Mom did what she could to correct us, but we knew what it meant by the words, wait till your father gets home!!!
However, we made it to Church almost every Sunday, then came the time of Confirmation, Weâ€™re now Confirmed Members of the Church. Time to take what weâ€™ve learned and apply it.. We drifted in and out of Church, and then just quit going altogether. But, somehow always managed to ponder what God was all about.
Finished High School and joined the Navy. Found myself overseas and thatâ€™s when it finally sunk in. What Faith was all about?
Growing up in small town Midwest USA, one didnâ€™t see all there was too see. Boy, talk about a wakeup call. Finding one not quit all alone, but close enough, at this young age of 18 I found myself looking for deeper answers to even deeper questions.
That, I believe is when I realized and for the first time understood the song â€œ The Churchâ€™s one foundationâ€ and how it now applied to me.
What Jesus Christ had and has done for me and for all mankind.
Not to get to the question from part 1.
What if Iâ€™m wrongâ€¦.
I have heard that the following is someoneâ€™s law, but canâ€™t remember whoâ€™s.
If when I die, believing there is a God, and find out there is no God. What have I lost?
However, if when I die, not believing thereâ€™s a God, and there is one! What have I lost!!!?
I strongly feel (BELIEVE) that if when I die believing in God, and whose Son Jesus Christ, die for my sins and has made it possible through Godâ€™s own Grace to enter in Godâ€™s Kingdom, and that I will end up in that Kingdom on judgment day. And there is no God. I have not lost a single thing.
But, on the other hand, spending eternity in the lake of fireâ€¦
Till next time
Yours in Christ
