12 years ago, I was a bodyguard for a drug dealer. I'd spent the night before cleaning my bullets, so I could go to a nearby town and kill a bunch of child molesters. I knew I could kill them, but also knew the police would eventually kill me. I felt bad, because I didn't care enough about the consequences to stop. I felt like I was on a runaway train that was going to crash, but I didn't know how to get off. As the sun came up, the bad feeling grew so strong I couldn't stand it anymore longer. I walked outside onto the front porch. Looking up at the sky, I raises my hands and said,"God, I don't know if you're real, but I'm sick unto death of this feeling. I'll give up these drugs, and the alcohol-even the cigarettes! Just take this misery from me, please!.". Instantly, I felt peace, which was overwhelming, because I'd never felt it before. I immediately ran down the street to Evaleen's house and asked her if she was going to church. She said yes, and took me with her that evening. I talked to a man there who told me about Jesus, and tears ran down my face as I believed in Him at that moment. A church in another state had been praying for me for days prior to this, and when my ex told me that I told her that theyd better stop, because it was hurting my heart. They didn't, of course.

I was living in tribal housing after being born again. I felt a great fear, that kept growing, so I cried out to God. "God, I feel like I'm going to die here, please help me to get out of this place."! This was Saturday morning, so most of the residents were still sleeping off the partying they'd done last night. No one was visible anywhere near me, so I was amazed when I heard an audible voice reply to my request. "Alright, but you will come back here, to minister to these-your people.". I replied,"OK God, just not today.". Shortly thereafter, I received the money to move to Oregon, where my children were living, and a place to stay. Praise God for His long-suffering and tender mercies!

Some years ago, I witnessed a dog get hit by a car. The owner was heartbroken, because his pet was dead. I was led to pray for his dog, so I did. Not only did the dog come back to life, but he didn't seem to have serious injury. I don't pretend to understand how God does things, but I knew what He did that day was real-even if I didn't understand it. Praise God for His love and power!

it appears that you are on a 'different path', we pray that it is God's...

Old the new, on what do you base your opinion?

Old the new, perhaps you could clarify on what you meant by,'On a different path,' so I can know what you meant? As for the rest, I think we should all pray to God that we are all on God's path, yes?

I know the conversation I had. I asked for help, and was given said help, but was also informed that I would return-at some later time, so my honest response was OK, bot not today. What do you think is amiss?

I've always been honest with God, and as a newborn babe in Christ I said many things I'm sure I wouldn't today. My testimony has always been about what happened when I was born again, and some events immediately afterward. If you're casting aspersions on my salvation and/or testimony, I respectfully ask you to take that up with God. If not, then I hope you'll clarify what you're saying. I've shared what happened to me then with many Christians from many different denominations-but you're the first who seems to have a problem with it. Please enlighten me as to your intent, so I may better understand.

obviously you are on a 'different path', but in your first 'post', you never said that you gave up KILLING...
these are obviously 'two' different paths'...

if our Saviour is calling, there is only ONE PATH, which includes ALL of what He will and will not tolerate...
else, there will always be consequences and NO peace to be found.., unless it is of the 'un-reality' side of life..,
which would of course to be 'satan's fool and servant...

Brother there are always going to be people out there who claim to know God and get on sites like this purely to promote themselves. Just ignore him God will deal with the hardness of his heart and his hateful mouth. He may be jealous, who knows.

Thank you, sir, for responding, and my apologies for not being more clear. I didn't murder anyone after being saved: Nor did I after. Hopefully, this will alleviate your concerns.

Oops, I before. No murder before or after. By the grace of God I never had to take a life.

Growing up in a native American community, I knew early on the world was evil. Almost from the beginning(I understood that everyone(I learned they were lost)around me was an evil heart-full of rage and murderous intent. My father was a professional boxer, half Irish and half English, and a notorious womanizer,who gave me two things before leaving: He taught me how to box, and he left me his enemies(all the men whose women he borrowed). My mother was a full-blooded member of the Karuk tribe. She started drinking full time when my father left her, when I was two. She'd tried to drown me when I was a year old, and she was the first of many that tried to kill me as I was growing up. I went work in the woods at age twelve, and this was the age I was first with a woman. At this time I met the first woman I truly loved, who was
10 years older. We had an unusual relationship ship, and she killed herself when I was 17. I met the second great love of my life shortly after Ann died, and she died when I was 22. I met the last great love of my life at 19, and she died when I was 23. All of them died alcohol-related deaths. My brother was born shortly before I was 3, and he was an FAS baby. He grew up to be a woman beater and serial rapist, but so many native men are so violent, I never found out for years. Many girls and women told me about him, but I didn't believe it until I caught him hurting one of my nieces. This was the first time I wanted to kill someone, but I couldn't do it. Someone murdered him eventually. My grandmother became a Christian(I think)when I was a baby, and since I was a often left with her by my alcoholic mother, I had to go with her to the side variety of pentecostal churches, various revivals, and Indian Shaker church meetings. You never seen extreme until you've been to an Indian Shaker church meeting. My grandfather died before my mother was born, si neither of us knew him. My step-grandfather(Shan Dee)was a drunken, woman-beating, child-molesting, murdering rapist. My father, who left for good when I was 4, almost beat Shan to death after he knocked my grandmother's eye out of her head, so he hated me(I guess I look like my father)and beat me all the time. I guess he didn't know that my father wasn't hurt by my beatings. I heard Shan laughing about a woman he'd raped and murdered when I was 6, and had to pretend I couldn't hear him calling me after, so he wouldn't kill me too. As I grew older, and became a drunk, and eventually a drug addict working for drug dealers, my heart grew harder, but it never got so hard I didn't believe in God. To be continued...

the atrocities and satanic acts that go on in this fallen-world, MOST 'have' to deny in their reality,
else they would lose what sanity they do have; this is where Jesus comes-in makes a way for us to survive!!!
'Praise God'...
