Praise Report: Life Transformed, No Longer Trapped in Downward Spiral of Sin

I grew up in a Christian family and got saved and water baptized as a young child. By the age of thirteen, I was speaking in tongues and was told that God had a purpose for my life. However, my family and the churches I went to did not believe in eternal security.

Because of this, I grew up thinking I had to perform perfectly in order for God to love me and be proud of me. When I turned seventeen and became associated with non-believers in my job, I decided that nothing I did would ever be good enough to please God and get me into heaven. So I renounced my faith.

I began dating a much older man who introduced me to cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, and fornication. My life went on a downward spiral. By the age of twenty-one, I was living with the guilt from having had an abortion and I was a full-blown addict. I had also given up any hope of a college education, and I was moving from house to house with nowhere to call home.

One day, I cried out to God to save me from the destructive path I was on, and He did. All around me, God began shutting doors to that lifestyle, and I suddenly had a strong urge to go home to my family. When I got home, I also had a desire to start reading the Bible.

I was reading fine for a while until I came to Hebrews 6. I had always been taught it meant that once you renounced your salvation, you could never get it back. I grew very afraid and before I knew it, I was back to trying to perform for God’s love.

Out of desperation, I began to search the Web for answers and I came across Pastor Prince’s sermon entitled Can You Lose Your Salvation? That sermon completely changed my life!

All my addictions fell off one by one. I have been delivered from drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, and sexual immorality. I developed a strong desire for reading and studying the Word, and I love sharing what I’ve learned with everyone. I’m seeing God open doors for me everywhere and I am looking forward to going to a Bible college soon.

I am so thankful for the ministry that God has given Pastor Prince. It truly has impacted my life in ways I would never have imagined!

    Praise God.

    The fact that God brought you back to Him is it not proof that eternal security does not exist? Otherwise God would have been okay you keep on immorality !

    Anyway, much love
