hello from LadyPan
« on: November 07, 2007, 07:30:35 PM »
Well, looks like this is the place to introduce ourselves... so here I go... a little about myself... 

I can first be thankful that my childhood wasn't a religious one... I was told about God by my grandmother, but not made to go to any church by my parents... Mother had had the crap scared out of her as a child by ET and had decided she would never put her kids through that... better to be ignorant than in constant fear...

I had a few visits to the Catholic church by way of an aunt that babysat me... Even as a child I knew there was something very wrong with that way of things... Maybe it was just that this aunt would be screaming and cussing right up to the door... but while inside the building a quiet kind woman... HA!... I could see even then what a hypocrite was, though I didn't have the vocabulary to express it... As I grew I instinctively knew that no MAN was needed to "talk" with God... I couldn't see any good reason for infants to be baptized... I couldn't understand why they prayed to Mary... and those were just a few of the, what I thought should be obvious, reasons to disagree with that denomination of Christianity...

I have always been spiritual... extremely so!... but time after time I was turned off by this denomination or that... each time I thought I might have found a group that believed as I did, something would show itself and off I would go... usually the "we're right and everyone else is wrong" idea... I even looked into 7th Day Adventist... they had sent me to a verse in Romans 12 as proof of something or another I don't recall now... and Thanks to God I continued reading into chapter 14... they had no answers for my questions about that chapter, and again I was gone... I've looked into SO many different denominations and religions it's crazy!... Each one would eventually show a God that wasn't MY God  :HeartThrob:... I have hunted for nearly 37 yrs. for a place to call home...

Well... Lucy! I'm HOME!!!!   :bgdance:
and that is something I am so thankful for it brings tears everytime I think about it!.. It took no convincing on the part of any man to bring me to the God of UR... I was ALREADY HERE... by God alone was I brought to this way of belief... and am so extremely happy to know there are others that believe as I do... even better, is to see that MY God is the God of Christ!!! Love of the Father... more loving than any human parent can be... Praise Him and Thank Him!!!

I've been devouring the scriptures as never before in the last few months, now that I've found others that see God as I always have... I had nearly given up on the Bible and anything having to do with it... So you will all have to forgive me if I ask a lot of questions, but I'm really just learning about the scriptures, until now I have lived on The Spirit alone...

Hi LadyPan

:welcome: to the house of cracked pots, that BTW, is a compliment.

Having lived just by the Spirit is a good thing, sure you will be able to relate to Father's Love.

Be Blessed.
