My Story: Introduction

 

A number of people have asked me to share “my story” with them. By “story” I’m referring to my decision to join the Catholic Church in July, 2002. I know some of my Protestant friends are still baffled by Scott’s and my decision to become Catholic, though they love and accept us nonetheless.  Other friends have found it harder to accept us and our decision. Some of our acquaintances have expresesd a genuine interest in understanding what led us to take this step of faith. 

I’ve decided I will do my best to put into writing the journey that brought me to the Catholic Church. This endeavor actually serves another purpose; I’ve often wanted to record our journey for my children. I want them to know what we believe and why we believe it. 

It’s hard to know exactly where to begin because my decision to become Catholic is part of my lifelong faith journey. To understand where someone is you have to know where they’ve been. I will give some “Clif Notes” here and there and go into more detail when I think it will be more helpful. I will have to do this in installments. You can find these installments listed on pages sidebar.

    I believed in God all through my childhood & youth also but that did not make me a Christian.

    I was Converted on 13th may 2007 & i am now a born again Christian. In one instant my whole life changed, attitudes, thoughts, Everything.
    I had asked Jesus into my life & asked forgiveness for my sins.

    You MUST be converted

    “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven”

    Matthew 18:3

    David-

    Praise God for your testimony of faith in Jesus. From the date you offered this is a recent conversion. How wonderful for you and for the Body of Christ. The Christian life is one of daily converting your heart and mind over to Jesus and being transformed by Him. May you continue to grow in the love, grace and knowledge of our Lord.

    I too have a testimony of faith. I have believed in and loved Jesus for as long as I can remember. I do not have a first time conversion story or a date that I can recall. I realize that for certain Prostestant faith traditions this presents a problem because they believe that at some age of accountability or thereafter each individual must pray a sinner’s prayer in order to “be saved.” According to many Protestants this is the only way you can “become a Christian.” [I have yet to find that whole “age of accountability” thing in the Bible]. Anyway…

    As my story unfolds on this blog I will share more about “when” I believe I became a child of God and a member of His family.

    Have a blessed Sunday!

    Amy
