[COLOR=#5900b3]Did you grow up in a Christian home?

Did your parents lead you to Christ?

Or are you from a non-Christian family?

Share a little here.....how has this affected you?

My mother is an atheist.
And my late father was someone who occcasionally went to church at Christmas or Easter

I was saved at age 11, being a Christian at home was not easy.

However, the Lord has provided great Christian role models for me over the years since childhood.

How I thank the Lord for saving and keeping me!

Wow! What kind of question is that? My parents were Romanist..what they call Catholic...They both served their church faithfully. I remember often being offended because my mother spent so much time working for the church and not being with us kids....though it was a relief too, because I was terrified of her....poor girl.
I was at my dads side when he died but before, he was in his bed at home and I think it was the day before the big event..he wanted to sing 'How Great Thou Art' His favorite....This Romanist man sang weakly and we joined him, but near the end of the song he pointed upward, and the expression on his face....He glowed! Not literally of course but I've never seen such delight on his face! "Look! They're there! Waiting" Then the next day he died....I KNOW he went to be with the Lord.
During his life, I've seen him cussing, falling down drunk, super angry, he almost broke my nose because I couldn't figure out a math problem...LOL; and I saw the good side of him too of course...but I rarely heard him speak of God.
My mother....I was not there when she died, though I wish I had been. She spoke of God quite a bit..Well enough to terrify her sensitive little boy....I don't know, I just don't know....I hope she is in heaven....She went through too much hell as a child.....

Hmmm.. mine were "half and half". Mom was saved all my life. Dad didn't get saved until I was in my 50's.

Raised in a Roman Catholic Church, got saved in a Assemblies of God Church. Later I led my father to the Lord, but he never made Jesus to be his Lord. My mother had always believed in Jesus, and she forced me to Church, and even to become a Alter boy. She wanted me to become a priest,....I did but not the kind she wanted. :smile:

I am not a pastor, the Lord has called me to teach his Word. I would not want to be a pastor. Usually, pastors are also teachers, but this teacher is not a pastor......thank you Jesus.
