Welcome aboard.  

How did the Lord save you from your sins?  What did you do?  Is your wife's name written in the lamb's book of life?

Well, I was having a terrible episode of demonic possession after a night of drinking and drugs. I was also listening to wicked satanic music at the time. I felt myself fighting with a devil within me. After what felt like hours of convulsing and crying, "NO!" I had a moment of clarity. I got on the floor and told Jesus that I no longer wanted to live the life that I was living and that I wanted Him to be in control of my life. I wanted to live for Him. Now I wasn't yet completely informed on the saved by grace alone idea, but I did realize at that moment that only Jesus could save me and that I could do nothing to save myself, so that might have been it. I know it sounds a little charismatic like lol, but this really happened. I have stopped all drugs, alcohol,(they repel me now), adultery, pornography. I was an abusive man in the past, but the Lord has turned me into a gentle lamb. I am so glad that I left that life that I have gone completely to the other extreme, not that that's gonna save me as salvation is through belief on Jesus and His Grace only. I no longer watch TV at all, don't watch hollywood movies, and don't listen to popular music. I have become waaaaaaaaaay old school Independent Fundamentalist Baptist, Praise God. I couldn't imagine a better life. I don't think that my wife is saved. I've gone over the plan of salvation with her, and she has attested to believe it, but I just don't think that she really understood it. I've asked her since if she were to die today, if she knew where she was going, and she said no. It's hard for me to believe that she is saved. Help!

I too was once a drug addict. If

you google my name andthe word sermon, you can find a link to my page with me preaching my testimony, mine was pretty similar to yours...it would definately be worth listening to...many have told me listening to it has spoken to their hearts.

That's some what similar to what happened to me. I was very "unlearned" in the gospel, I just knew very well that I was covered in sin and that Jesus Christ was my only hope and so I called on Him. I don't even remember what I said, but I began to call on Him as Lord that day, and I had an earnest desire to live for Him and not to sin. I had never even heard of "saved by grace through faith", I just knew that he was the Saviour.

While not intending to be a critic, do you support the Tempe, Arizona-based cultist Steven Anderson? I disciple a brother in Christ delivered from the grips of heroin; NA or AA is no help at all, but Jesus is a Friend to those in need of his effectual call. The apostles thought they could return to their nets; the Lord broke the nets!
