This is a truly amazing testimony (my humble opinion). David led a life of drugs, crime, gangs, women . . . he was incarcerated time after time and racked up the felonies and misdemeanors. Finally, after attempting suicide and committing so many crimes, he was incarcerated again. Now, he’s currently in prison. But God has turned his life around he’s leading a Bible study in prison. As crazy as it sounds, he believes that God placed him there in order that he might completely surrender his life to God and carry out God’s Word. Wow!
Reshmi’s testimony starts like this:
I was born and raised a Hindu. My mother was a very devout Hindu woman and her faith instilled in us a strong belief in God. I grew up, earnestly believing in the gods that my religion offered and never found a reason to look beyond my religion.
When Reshmi’s gods didn’t answer her prayers, she turned to the Jesus of the Bible. And guess what? He did answer her prayers. Not to say that Jesus always gives us what we want. But He does let us know that He’s there. If we seek Him, we find Him. He makes Himself known to us and we can walk with Him from day to day.

The testimony of a person deeply involved in Buddhism and how they came to know Jesus.
This testimony tells the story of a person deeply enmeshed in Buddhism and how they came to find the Jesus of the Bible.
I was born to a poor family that consisted of my mom and grandparents in a remote village of Wangdue District, in the kingdom of Bhutan. At the age of 10, my mom had passed away leaving me with grandparents.
God delivered David from the homosexual lifestyle and preserved him through two brain aneurysms.
God delivered David from the homosexual lifestyle. God used a Christian who ran a gym—a man who simply left informative Christian newsletters at the exit and entrance. These articles prompted David to read his Bible, and God delivered David and gave him a peace that passes all understanding. Now, God has not only delivered him from the gay lifestyle, but He’s preserved David through two brain aneurysms. David is still going strong; he’s thankful to God for His endless mercy.
Marijuana is not all that bad. You can function on it. It’s got lots of great uses. It’s natural.
Marijuana has never even killed one person. Hemp has all sorts of wonderful uses. It is possible to function on cannabis.
Hmmmmm. I’d have to say, as a former (heavy) user of marijuana, that is is possible to function on cannabis. At a much lower cognitive level. My memory was shot when I smoked on a daily basis. My motivation level tanked. I went from job to job. When I stopped using, depression set it. I was addicted, if not physically, then psychologically. I went out of my way to get it, even when I was broke. When I wasn’t broke, all my money went to it. Ten grand from a automobile accident settlement—gone in four months—up in smoke. So yes, you can function on cannabis, but not at a high level.
Hemp does have many positive uses. It’s impossible to argue that point.
And now—get ready for it—one of the lamest but most common excuses people make for marijuana—it’s never killed anyone. It almost killed me. I was high as a kite and I rear-ended a Lincoln Continental that was at a dead stand-still. I was going 40 miles per hour and I broke my windshield with my head. As I was strapped to the gurney and carted off to the hospital all that was going through my mind was, “How am I alive?”
Marijuana is addictive. Marijuana is expensive. Marijuana is illegal. Marijuana ruins relationships. Marijuana use is correlated with depression. Marijuana kills. Believe that one or not. But think about it (use common sense) before you go around saying, “Marijuana has never killed anyone.”
And how about another lame argument? Here it is—hemp is natural; God created it; it’s a plant for crying out loud! Hmmm. Hemlock’s a plant. Why don’t you try cooking up some hemlock cookies?
Regardless, none of that is the point of the following article. The point is this: does your life revolve around trying to convince people that cannabis is good? Or does your life revolve around sharing the good new of the Jesus of the Bible? What’s your focus? Marijuana? Getting high? Or Jesus? Can you get through the day without your pot? Can you get through the day without reading your Bible? What do you buy with your expendable income? Is Jesus the answer to your life’s problems? Or is smoking a joint the answer?
Marijuana won’t give your life meaning. It won’t provide peace or fulfillment. Meaning, peace, fulfillment—these things come from one source: Jesus Christ.
Did our Bible come from the Catholics?
Here’s an informative article on the origins of our sacred Scriptures. And if you don’t feel like reading the whole article (which would be a big mistake; it’s very informative and historical) I’ll just give you a little hint. Our Bible did not come from the Catholics.
It’s so easy to claim the title “Christian.” But do our lives really reflect that title?
Here’s a really cool poem from Mike.
It’s so easy to claim the title “Christian.” But do our lives really reflect that title? Do we know what it’s truly like to have a relationship with the God of the Bible? If not, it’s time to start living the life God has in mind for us.
Don’t ever give up praying for your lost loved ones. God may yet work a miracle in their lives.
It’s easy to give up praying for someone when you’ve prayed for oh-so-long and the only answer is silence. It’s easy to ask the question, “God, why are you ignoring me? Why can’t you reveal yourself?”
Charan’s testimony reminds us never to stop praying for our loved ones that don’t know the Jesus of the Bible. Continue praying. God will hear and He will honor your commitment and perseverance.
Is it a sin to masturbate?
Does the Bible have anything to say about masturbation? Is it a sin?
I’ve heard it said that only 144,000 chosen ones will go to heaven to be with God. Does the Bible really teach that?
I’ve heard it said that only 144,000 virgin Israelite males will get to go to heaven. Does that really seem fair? Does that sound like something that the Jesus of the Bible would teach?
Well, if you read the same Bible I read, and you really read it, I think you’ll come to the correct conclusion.
