Ever since I was young I had been attending church. I was baptized as an infant, confirmed as a teen (Lutheran church) , and was generally a good, moral person. . . or so I thought.
One day in August of 2005, I was sitting in my room browsing the internet. Somehow, a Christian website came up in my Google search results. I thought to myself, "hmm I remember this site. " Several months prior I had visited the same website and attempted to register for their forum to make fun of the silly Christians and their crazy ideas about what is acceptable and what is not. So out of curiosity, I clicked the link and began reading a little bit of the content on the site. I came across a link describing salvation and how one is to be saved. I knew something wasn't right. I had always believed that I would go to heaven because basically, I'm a pretty good person, right? Never had it really occurred to me that I had sinned against a Holy God. I searched for different Christian websites to verify what I had read, and I soon realized that if I were to die right then, I would spend an eternity in Hell. I knew this was true because the Bible has never been wrong in all of its prophetic predictions. That same hour, God granted me repentance and faith, and my life was changed.
