“I was sure I had time for the important decisions of life ‘when I was older’…That belief came crashing around me.”
I was searching to find if anyone knew for sure they were going to Heaven. Another graduate student had the answers.
I believed the lie that all sin was the same, it didn’t matter, so I showed no restraint- the things I regret most happened during that time period.
Even though I grew up in church I knew I had done wrong, was selfish, and lived to do what I wanted to do…
I was asked by my youth pastor if I knew Jesus and I said that I did not know him.
That night after church my mother was getting me ready for bed and I said, “Mama, I need to get saved tonight.”
“You’re going to Hell!” That preacher was pointing right at me.
I first learned about Jesus in grade school. My teacher gave me my first Bible…
I was a 17 year old junior in high school, going to a basketball tournament when I realized that I was not saved.
I was raised on a farm north of Tishomingo, and we went to the Prairie View School. I walked to Sunday School and church at the school.
