I was raised as Catholic and didn't feel comfortable with that path.  There isn't anything specific as to why I had lost faith with the Catholic religion (there is plenty of reasons now).  But I started to research different things; magic, both black and white (finding that there is no difference) and other pagan religions, and not finding the answers there either. Then one afternoon I was shopping at one of the malls at a national bookstore chain not looking for anything in particular and pulled a book off of the shelf and when I looked to see what I pick up it was the satanic bible.  I dropped the book and left the store as fast as I possibly could (to never return).  I was very distressed about this and told this to a friend who I knew was a Christian.

 He and his wife took me into their home and invited me to church with them the following Sunday.  After going with them every Sunday for about two or three months I accepted Jesus as my Savior.  I would like to be able to tell you that my life has been wonderful since that day but unfortunately that is not the case for me.  I feel like I am the guy in the poem "Footprints" because for the last several years I am the one that has been carried by Jesus across the sand.  I didn't return to my demons of old (lack of faith) but found a whole set of new ones to disrupt my life: selfishness, greed, drugs and lust just to name a few.  And the worse part was I forgot all about Jesus and what He has done for me.

 My journey back starts with a book, The Fourth Reich, I apologize I don't remember the author.  It is a story about the antichrist and the end times.  After reading it, I knew that I did not want to be here during his reign.  Then a friend of mine turned me on to Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins Left Behind series.  After the first couple of books I knew that I had to get right with Jesus and God before it was too late.  I went out and bought a new Bible to start reading it and start living my life the way Jesus wants us to be.  My favorite time now is the time I spend reading my Bible and learning God's Word.

 God Bless you,

Your friend in Christ,
