My Facebook memories popped up today. It was a reminder of what I have been trying to avoid talking about. It’s the reason my testimony page AND video have disappeared “all of a sudden.” It’s why I took a break from social media, and why I haven’t been my normal “fiery” self. It’s why
some most of my older blog posts have been taken down.
It’s because over these past four years, I’ve gotten it wrong. Now, ya’ll know- I keep it transparent with yall. I’ve tried and tried to type this post so many times, but it’s like— I just couldn’t get the words quite right. I don’t want to come off as bashing anybody, and I surely don’t want to throw the blame around. But, there is a hugeeeee elephant in the room & well… it’s time to talk about it. You see, as a new “believer” (Because I thought that I’d found Christ) on this day four years ago…. I got it so, very wrong. I say I “thought” I came to Christ, but in actuality I just started changing my behaviors because I thought that was what saved me. Over the years, that has led to me feeling like my works E A R N E D me my salvation, and because of that God deserved to do certain things for me. It also led to me feeling like I could “lose” my salvation when I messed up. My foundation and theology was ALL wrong. Over the past few months, I’ve been show just how wrong I had things. I want to share what I have learned, so that I clear up the misinformation that my old posts may have spread.
