Many of my friends know that Chick Publications recently changed my life when they showed me that the King James Bible is God's preserved Words in English. All other versions are either incomplete or perverted. I can now say with confidence: "Thus saith the Lord!"
But this is not the first time the work of Chick Publications has changed my life. At ten, I considered myself "half Christian, half Buddhist," saying strange words from a book (really praying to pagan devils), and rubbing the prayer beads while looking at a paper in a wooden box. (Not unlike looking at a statue of Mary while reciting set prayers, using a rosary.) But God knew I loved comics.
A soul winner walked by with the Chick tract, THIS WAS YOUR LIFE! I read it with him and said the prayer at the back. He told me to go to a church that teaches Christ.
But I misunderstood about Christ. I started to going to the "church" of "Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints." I became a Mormon. But the story does not end there.
I was a Mormon for four years, then became a Religious Scientist (an occultic group like Christian Science). Two years later I took the new-age "est" training and later joined the "Unity School of Christianity."
In my last year of high school, I was performing spells and reading occultic literature, believing I was "god" and there was no devil. But God got hold of me again. One night, I performed a spell. In my exhilaration I cried out, "I am a prophet of God!"
Then I heard a voice: "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." (Matthew 7:21-23)
I remembered the picture of that man standing before God in THIS WAS YOUR LIFE! I knew that I needed to repent, as it says in every Chick tract. I repented with all my heart. And I have never regretted that day the soul winner came to my apartment, with an open heart and a Chick tract.
