I Was Sitting On Death Row

My Testimony

There was a man, who was clearly under the control of the evil one, whom Jesus liberated. When this fellow begged to go with Jesus, Jesus responded, “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you. And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.” (Luke 8:39) This is my objective also, with this post.

Growing Up Mennonite

My Testimony

 

 

I’d like to share with you a little of my background and how God rescued me from a discouraging life!

 

A Mennonite Boy Joins the Church

 

To begin with, my mother grew up in a colony in Mexico until she was around the age of 12. At this time her parents decided to move back to Canada. However, my father grew up in Canada and both of them attended Mennonite churches all their lives. I too, grew up underneath this “umbrella.”5869151039_7a8d170cf9_z

 

So what was my life like growing up underneath this “umbrella”? Well, I remember attending church one Sunday and having a teacher in the Sunday School tell us that if we wanted to go to Heaven, we should “invite Jesus into our heart.” I simply figured, if the church says it, it must be right! So when I got home, I did just that! I never even told my own mother. I just assumed that all was well. When I was around the age of 13, my mother asked me if I was a Christian? I said, “Yes,” and that was the end of the conversation. Later in my teens, my mother would ask me if I would ever listen to rock music? I told her, “No.” It was also around this time that a Sunday School teacher introduced our class to porn. Upon turning 15 years of age, it seemed popular to be baptized by sprinkling. So I took some church classes and was baptized by sprinkling. Thus I became a member of the church we attended.

I WAS A HYPOCRITE

I grew up in a typical “Christian” environment. I thought I was a Christian, but I was a hypocrite! I said I loved God, but I hated my fellow man. As a child I was mistreated and it made me an angry person! My thoughts reeled with visions of revenge. I wanted to even the score! Oh, I put on a “nice face,” but it was only a thin veil for a hate-filled heart within. Yes, I read my Bible, I prayed, and I went to church, but it didn’t affect my life. I was a two-faced hypocrite!

How I Got Saved

My Background

I grew up in a religious home where it was normal to go to Sunday School and church. It was normal to see people praying and reading their Bible. The people in my family, were what most people would refer to as “good.” They didn’t drink alcohol, go to bars, smoke, swear, and so on.

The cultuVicre I grew up in was an Evangelical Mennonite culture. I know Mennonites are very different from one group to another! The group I belonged to did not live on a colony or practice a particular dress-code. In fact, we were relatively modern in our way of life!

As to myself personally, I adhered to the religious beliefs I grew up with. I regularly attended Sunday School and church. I was consistent in reading my Bible and praying. Every night before going to bed, I would confess all my sins to God, asking Him to forgive me of my sins. I was even baptised at the age of 15. I also tried to the best of my abilities to be good, as I was taught. You could say, I was very religious!
