The Moment of my Conversion

Updated: Sep 30, 2022

Too many Christians are unclear about their conversion. Actually, my own conversion was very confusing. It was rather sudden and without much transition. Going from being an avid anti-Christian who shook Christians' faith for fun to becoming a born-again Christian who had the faith he used to shake was dizzying, primarily because it was so sudden.

After my rather abrupt conversion I still had all these arguments against Christianity in my head, yet I believed in God—talk about confusion. My anti-Christian friends converged on me and asked, "What’s with this mess?" What happened?" "Why are you playing this game?" They didn't get it. They couldn't make heads or tails out of what was going on with me; unfortunately, neither could I. In response to their questions, I could only babble. I made absolutely no sense at all, just like the Christians I used to give a hard time. I had become one of them—those crazy, nonsensical Christians who talk all that nonsense that not even they understand, and somehow, it’s supposed to make sense to the unbeliever, but then that's right; it’s not supposed to make sense; according to them you're just supposed to believe. And here I was, talking just like them. I thought that day would never come, but there it was.

This was intolerable. I eventually went to a three-day fast (no food or water) at my

grandfather's church, and I basically prayed a seventy-two-hour, one sentence prayer over and over: “Lord give me understanding.” At the end of the fast, as I was walking towards the exit door of the church, with each step, something new became clear. I would think, "Oh, yeah. Now I get it," "That makes sense,” “Oh, so that's why..." I had a new realization (or was it a revelation?) with each step. That was the beginning of the end of the babbling, nonsensical Christian and the beginning of the logical, coherent, and articulate Christian God intended me to be, that he intended every Christian to be.

In this blog I take a close look at a wide variety of topics using the Bible as my lens. When we look at the world through the lens of scripture we discover life-changing truth that transforms us. We discover our

identity, purpose and worth. We find answers to life's most pressing questions. “If you don't know where you're going any road will take you there.” But when we look at the world through the lens of scripture we find the "way, the truth and the life;" then we live life to the fullest.
