Hi all, I’ve had an account for a while but haven’t been active. I’m back and looking forward to being more active A brief background... I grew up in a Christian home and attended church until I was 19, left and lived a worldly life for the next 6 or 7 years, returned to the same church thinking my church attendance and confession meant I was saved. My now best friend who is a godly man spent much time with me, slowly introducing me to reformed doctrines. On July 11th, 2016 God radically saved me, opened my eyes to my sin, His holiness, my deserving of hell and my need for a saviour. I then realised that all those years I thought I was saved, I was in fact not, which was terrifying. I quickly grew to love the doctrines of grace and His word. In the last 3.5 years God has shown his faithfulness in keeping me. Now at 30, He has blessed me with a wonderful wife with the same beliefs. I still attend the same Pentecostal church but I would consider myself Reformed Baptist, it’s not always easy but we believe we need to be there. I’m looking forward to growing in my understanding of God’s word, better understanding biblical doctrines and definitely getting into the puritans which my fascination and desire to read them has recently sparked. I look forward to learning more and having discussions around here in the future. Edit: Is it possible to change my username?
