My Train Wreck Conversion

Editor's Note: This is the testimony of the wife of one of our broadcasters, 1st Reformed Presbyterian Church Durham. It is a wonderful demonstration of the power of God's Word to witness directly to the human heart.

The word Jesus stuck in my throat like an elephant tusk; no matter how hard I choked, I couldn't hack it out. Those who professed the name commanded my pity and wrath. As a university professor, I tired of students who seemed to believe that "knowing Jesus" meant knowing little else. Christians in particular were bad readers, always seizing opportunities to insert a Bible verse into a conversation with the same point as a punctuation mark: to end it rather than deepen it.

Stupid. Pointless. Menacing. That's what I thought of Christians and their god Jesus, who in paintings looked as powerful as a Breck Shampoo commercial model.

As a professor of English and women's studies, on the track to becoming a tenured radical, I cared about morality, justice, and compassion. Fervent for the worldviews of Freud, Hegel, Marx, and Darwin, I strove to stand with the disempowered. I valued morality. And I probably could have stomached Jesus and his band of warriors if it weren't for how other cultural forces buttressed the Christian Right. Pat Robertson's quip from the 1992 Republican National Convention pushed me over the edge: "Feminism," he sneered, "encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians." Indeed. The surround sound of Christian dogma comingling with Republican politics demanded my attention.

Heh Luke 17:10, thanks for posting this verse. It is very appropriate; the Holy Spirit does not make mistakes!

God bless Pastor Ken Smith for his wise questions! I'm sure there were many stumbling block Christians before him condeming her. It's amazing when one is introduce to the true love of Christ.

It is wonderful when we can rejoice together over the Salvation of another.

Unprofitable(?), just a word of encouragement to you, in the Lord's hands trust He will cause you to be one who is a very Profitable Servant, used by Him in the lives of others for their good and His glory.

Let me see if I can do this Hyperlink correctly: The Value of Sinners, Prostitutes, and Drunkards by Ryan Fullerton.

IMHO he gives us a wonderful attitude to have in our faith in witnessing to people. I hope it is a blessing to you all.
