I read this quote in a blog I read today.

(Check it out for yourself! He’s good!)

“Why is it that so many people who become a Christian or turn to a new religion often spend so much time focusing on what ‘not to do’?”

This comment and the resulting blog really made me think about my own conversion.

I had been brought up to go to church…well sort of. My parents believe in God and I come from a generation where a lot of kids went to church and Sunday school. It was a cultural thing. We said prayers and school at the beginning and end of the day – had christian assembly- that’s how it was.

At the age of thirteen, I discovered that it was possible to have a personal relationship with Jesus – that my sins could be forgiven. 

Before this I had no idea!
