Hey People :)

My name is Lynda , and I have been saved for 5 years :)
Was raised in a very " Baptist " home , very legalistic , and always thought of God as a mean judge who was waiting for me to mess up so he could hammer me .
I was confused about salvation , asked " Jesus into my heart " numerous times , without ever really understanding the Gospel that saves us ( 1st Cor. 1-4 )
I rebelled ( of course ) and lived my life till in my 50's , when I really started to think about eternal things
I started to really look at creation , and realized , that there was no way that our world , and everything in it , came from nothing !!
I asked God to show me the truth , was he really real ?? Did he even exist ??
From there , my journey has been well , amazing !!!!
I was saved 5 yrs ago at age 53 , after trusting in CHRIST ALONE for my salvation
I have been learning and growing ever since :)
God has been so wonderful and patient with me and so very loving !!!
Hope to get to know some of you here on this site !!

Based on your introduction I believe that you're going to fit right in here. It is good of you to trust in Christ alone for your salvation as Jesus died for our sins. Glad to have you as part of our family. Welcome to CC.

Hi. Welcome. Thx for sharing your story. I've always thought it is interesting how we all have a different journey in faith. I think church is a good foundation but we should always study on our own. Don't feel bad because we are all human and we see things differently as we learn, grow and develop in the Lord.
