I gave myself to the Word in high school and fell away because of the NIV. My journey was fraught with doubt and hatred, mostly directed at myself. I have always known the world was sick, that, not-so-deep down, there is something fundamentally wrong with it. Last year, I discovered unequivocal proof of the existence of God, and since God is real, why would Jesus lie? He didn't, he doesn't. Jesus is the Son of God and he bought me with his blood and now I can spend eternity looking on the face of my creator, God the Father, and spend my life directed by his Holy Spirit. God is all that is good! Praise to the Everlasting! Praise to the Lord Jesus! Father, thank you for your goodness and your mercy. Glory and honor to God in the highest!
