A Brand New Life Given To Me

 I am about to share a true life experience that happened to me more than Ten Years ago. I was born into a family that could afford me luxury and comfort; I was privileged to attend one of the best schools in my country. Life for me was exciting and at its peak. I never really cared about religion because as far as I was concerned, it was for the ignorant and the misfits of the society. This all changed with an experience I had, it all happened in October 1999, when I was travelling from my home to another city , like I earlier said I came from a  family that could provide me with luxury, so I travelled with my Father who was a top government official  in his official car with his aide. We arrived at our destination in about Three hours. Upon arrival I felt a little uneasy and I had a prompting within me that I must return back from where I was coming from immediately. I told my father who naturally would have refused but surprisingly he obliged to my going back. The aide was told to take me back
Two days after my arrival while waiting for my Father’s return I heard the most shocking news ever that my father was involved in a ghastly motor Accident which claimed lives. I found this hard to believe but it was true. I went to the hospital and saw him half dead.  At this point   I completely overwhelmed as I felt Gods love and mercy upon my soul, I then realized that if I had stayed I could have died in the Accident. I was crying because I wondered why God would show undeserved mercy to me who never gave him audience in my life. It was at this moment I saw the guilt of my sin: my fornication, telling lies, stealing, Fighting, using abusive words, anger, hatred, bitterness, malice, jealousy, greed and all my sinful indulgence etc.
I know God hates these things because it is at variance with his word. I then asked him for forgiveness and Promised him that I would never do those things he Dislikes, If despite all my ills towards him he still showed love to me, I received His Son Jesus as my Lord and Personal savior, as the person that paid the price for my sin by coming in a human form more than 2,000 yrs ago to die for our sins  so as to reconcile sinful man to a loving God. It’s now more than Ten years and God has Given me the Grace not to go back to my sins and evil acts, It’s a miracle that I can’t explain, that I can do without Fornication , engaging in sinful indulgences etc. I can now say that I am truly a child of God. I now know peace that I can’t explain, my life is filled with God’s love and Joy. I am so Grateful to God and His Son Jesus for the Brand new Life I have received. I believe that Jesus is Lord and that he has prepared a place of Glory for his people. I believe that when he comes to take his own I would be with him in Glory. I really Love God because he Sent his Son Jesus to Die for my Sins, I am Proud of Him. I owe my Life entirely to him.
I also love you dear reader , and I pray that you would also experience what i experienced, but the choice is yours , why not give him a chance in your life, why not let him in, and you would experience this peace , love and joy that this world can’t give. First start by confessing your sins, Then accept Jesus as lord and Personal Savior, and promise him you won’t go back to your sinful ways, don’t worry if you are sincere He would give you the grace not to go back  to sinful indulgence. All this is done by closing your eyes and saying a few prayers then you would experience what I am talking about. I love you because the love of God Flows from my heart to you. Thank you and God bless you.

If all of this was prompted by only an uneasy feeling, why do you think it was the Christian god? Why not Allah, or Zeus, or Athena, or Thor, or perhaps the Pagan goddess,etc? How do you know this was not a mere coincidence?

It seems an illogical leap to go from an "uneasy feeling" to "god did it." God of the gaps is what we rational types call this.

Now, why are you in an atheist group? Most of us know your religion and others inside and out, and have heard it all before. Your story of a "miracle" and being "saved" is nothing new here.

Also, you should not lie, cheat, steal, etc because it is wrong to do so, not because some dusty old book says not to do it and warns of "hell" and "damnation" if you do. Don't you have a mind of your own, morals of your own? I find it very sad that you need a bible to tell you right from wrong.

WE all share tolerance, but as the guidelines state, please stay in our own groups to prosteletize...sp?<br />

To each their own, and good health!<br />

Troubleshooter and Godfree110158, people of your perspective invade Christian groups and other groups where you don't belong and plant stories. So you're just getting a dose of your own medicine.

Why does his story belong here in "I'm an atheist a liberal and leftwing"?<br />
If he is no longer an atheist he belongs in the sky talker blogs.<br />
If he is not a liberal he belongs in the republican blogs.<br />
If he is not left wing he belongs in the Ann Coulter love fest blogs.<br />
He has nothing to teach us for he comes at us with no proof, as you have no proof or logical gounds to stand on.

I have no spiritual void to fill.

It is disrespectful...and it has...and will go both ways. To think that both side are innocent...is, well punching beyond one's weight limit.<br />

Sorry for the original posters post....

What sins? Why should I confess to something I am not guilty of?<br />
Now I am very glad you get a warm and fuzzy from talking to the sky, but why are you posting here, you must know we think you are a fucktard with an IQ of about .16<br />
Is it your attempt to bring us to your zombie king? If so you must learn to write or have your god channel the spirit of the Bard through you, for your tale is amature at best and a wasteof cyber space at worst.<br />
Now go say your prayers and let the adults get back to our conversations.
