MadamExcellency:


The world here is different from the Earth. For emphasis sake read the passage below.

1 John 2:15-17 CSB
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. [16] For everything in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride in one's possessions-is not from the Father, but is from the world. [17] And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does the will of God remains forever.

How can the world be different from the earth? Isn't the earth a part of the world?

This is a grammatical lie.

What Happened The Day I Said "Goodbye" To The World And "Welcome" To Jesus

It seemed just like any other day. I was in a joint-fellowship meeting on campus and also part of the choir.

Although I wasn't yet saved at the time, i didn't feel out of place there because i had already gotten used to being active in that capacity in church, leading praise and worship and also choir ministration despite yet being a sinner. But the words i heard from the preacher on that day was so compelling, it made me finally make that defining decision to say yes to Christ.

This was after I had come out for several alter calls prior to that without truly repenting. However on this particular occasion i didn't even go out for the alter call, so no one else in the meeting may have noticed what had just taken place. But on that day heaven bore witness and was rejoicing because a change had truly taken place in me, and a soul which was previously lost and bound for hell, had become saved and won into the Kingdom of heaven.

One remarkable difference I noticed in my life after I made the decision for Jesus was with respect to my strong inclination to steal.

Now I was such a chronic thief. I used to steal for country. It got to the extent that I would break into people's houses and cars to steal, some of them were even my neighbors and (family) friends who welcomed me into their family homes and treated me kindly but I still stole or tried to steal from them. It was that bad.

I have a feeling that the strong drive to steal then was driven by my materialistic and covetous tendencies. That's the reason why I am very careful with teachings which encourage such in the church, because I know how far such can push someone into doing the wrong things.

No wonder why Jesus strongly discouraged and sternly warned against such things:

Luke 12:15 (KJV)

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

Although mine, thankfully, didn't get to the extent of wanting to injure or kill someone physically in other to get what they had, as it often does, as illustrated by the instance of Judas the disciple of Jesus who betrayed Him because of money to show how far it could push someone.

Mine was still bad though regardless, but what shocked me was that on that day, in that very moment I made that decision, that inclination in me instantly dried up. That is to say, i suddenly stopped stealing and turned to the opposite of what I used to be in that regards from that day onwards.

This became evident just days later when my best friend in school had finished the assignment and given me to copy from him, as we usually did beforehand to help each other in class, but to his greatest surprise, I told him "no, thanks", that I was going to do it myself.

That was how he came to realize that I was no longer the man he once knew.

It was indeed a brand new me.

God bless.

You are useless.

Yes, useless to fools and non-entities.

I don't see the reason for mocking the op.

No matter what anyone thinks, it is good thing that someone has changed from a chronic thief to one who now respects other peoples property.

This is not the first time this kind of thing has happened. I know of a relative who was once a terror to everyone, and surprisingly he changed from that to a better person when he started attending church. He never went back . It is was like a dream to everyone.

I am neither a Christian nor do I practice any religion, but I believe religion, provides a source of motivation for making certain decisions in life, whether good or bad.

In the case of the op, it is for the good. So what is wrong in trying to be a better person?




Thanks bro. I really respect your opinion.
The life of Christ in us(Christians) is not the one that makes us a better person but the one that overcomes the world. What Christ did for us is not only to forgive us our sins but to kill that nature of sin in Us.
You just can't explain how you forsake some crazy habits. An arrogant person does not know how suddenly he became meek, the proud realizes he/she has become humble, a fornicator and adulterer will just suddenly lose taste for their filthy wayward life, a thief will not have the urge to steal anymore, drunkards and drug addict suddenly become sober. I am a witness to all these things. When Christ enter into one's life, there is automatic changes. A new nature is born within. That is the victory that overcomes the world.
I myself got a terrible habit but the moment I gave my life to Christ, every ungodly habit passed away. There is always peace within and the burden of sin is lifted. If you give your life to Christ, you have hope to reign with Him heaven and strong assurance to keep you safe and sound right here on Earth. Peace be with you my brother.

You said "Goodbye to the world" and you're still here with us in the world. Are you normal?
When you say goodbye, you depart. And by departure, you exit.
To my fellow sane world dwellers, ONE MINUTE SILENCE TO THIS LOST SOUL.
If you ever wake up, remember my moniker to help you find your purpose in life.
Rest in peace!

You have done well by typing his R.I.P
that's what truly happened. When Christ died on the cross, that young guy died with Him. The OP is dead to the world. Colossians 3:3: for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

DUDE JUST FOR FRIENDLY REMINDER...
REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST SURELY RETURN BACK TO THE ONWER EVERY SINGLE PIN YOU HAVE STOLEN FROM THEM IN THE PAST AND THEN ASK THEM FOR FORGIVENESS ONE BY ONE , BEFORE GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU COMPLETELY, IF NOT YOU ARE JUST BEATING ABOUT THE BUSH,
The phrase that you guys used to quote from the Bible that says ...
IAM A NEW CREATURE THAT OLD THINGS HAS PASS AWAY OR RATHER PAST AWAY IS JUST TOTAL RUBBISH grin

If you steals from OKOLO or ADEBAYO or MUSA in the past when you are in the world, make sure that when you repent from your evil way , you must send back to them all their items or stuffs or money and ask for their forgiveness, after which you will then ask God Almighty for total forgiveness grin
KNOW THIS AND KNOW PEACE
You have not come to know Christ who has paid for forgiveness of Sins. Before the OP came into this world Jesus has already paid for all his including you. Before your mother gave birth to you, Jesus Christ has paid for ALL your sins.
What I mean by All include the sin of Adam, parental sins, your personal sin and future sin.
As regards restitution you mention up there, the OP can't even remember all the people he has hurt or stole from them. You may as well tell him to seek for all his primary/secondary Schools colleuge he stole from. It doesn't work that way.
Read Ephesians 4: 28 :- let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his own hand the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

But you're still in the world. Why are you afraid to die and go and meet Jesus in heaven?

Am here to teach you secrets about your foreign religion.
I am for Christ but not for the 'pharisitic' religion carved around it. And FYI, Christ is a spirit more than man you worship and that spirit is love that is not religion bound
