Hi my name is Tommy and
I was a pretender for 34 years. I
lived a good life and went to church. I had a family, a job, dogs and
cats. I didn't curse and didn't steal, and actually read my bible from
time to time. I said amen when my preacher preached and sang the hymns
and praised God.
For 34 years of my life I was
pretending. I was pretending to know God. I was pretending to be a
Christian. the bad thing is I didn't even realize that I was
pretending. I had no clue. My eyes were
I praise God for opening my eyes on
November 4th 2004. God allowed me to see my sinfulness against him.
He allowed me to see my horrific condition. That I was really headed
for hell. Every lie, every lustful thought, every time I had used His
name in vain was going to be revealed and I was to receive what I
deserved, an eternity in hell.
Then at the lowest point,
I looked up and saw what I had never
understood before. What the cross was really about. I
repented and for the first time placed my faith in Jesus Christ.
My life has never been the same since.
