By Pamela Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-
By now, some of my regular readers may be wondering WHY I am deviating from my usual subject matter, and publishing this type of Christian testimony regarding my brother's salvation through Jesus Christ from this world of darkness.
Why am I? It is because of the fact that everywhere I have traveled to investigate and report on various subjects, both nationally and internationally, I am disturbed to observe the tragic spiritual darkness that so many young people of today are wandering in. The Illuminati/Communists and those of satan's kingdom have sadly succeeded in turning countless youth of our generation away from the Word of God and Biblical morals and principles.
Their relentless use of satanic heavy metal rock, godless and immoral movies coming incessantly out from "Helly"wood, television and their broadcasting continually of violence, immorality and loose teen sex, coupled with mockery of Christianity (and much more besides), has dealt a profound impact upon our youth of today.
In fact, what I have observed throughout the years has broken my heart for the youth of today...and the heart of Almighty God.
And my beloved brother was one of them. Convinced that he was joining the "cool crowd, the in-crowd," he eagerly participated with the peers of his day in sexual immorality, parties and drugs and drunkenness, defying Biblical and earthly authority, and believing that "...if it feels GOOD, DO it!"
The heartache my wonderful Christian mother and I experienced as we watched him descend into sin and darkness, was more than I could bear at times. Not only was my heart broken for him, but for his friends as I watched them also believe the lies of the world and the devil, and jump into this darkness as well.
And now, so many years later, my brother deeply regrets all he put his family through. He is filled with deep sorrow over how his lifestyle of sin broke our hearts and the heart of Almighty God as well by his rebellion. His present health crisis, due to years of abusing it by his lifestyle,is a constant reminder of the Word of God, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
It is therefore both John's sincere desire, and mine, to share his true story so that other youth of today may begin to understand that the "sex, drugs and rock n' roll" lifestyle is NOT the wonderful and popular world that corrupt Hollywood portrays it to be.
John is also sharing his testimony with my readers, because he knows that he has truly found a compassionate friend in Jesus Christ. This wonderful Jesus loved John enough to suffer and die on the cross to bear the just penalty from a holy God for John's sins. And now he is a forgiven man! John wants my readers to know, that IF they are involved in sin and darkness as he once was, that JESUS CHRIST IS ABLE TO FORGIVE THEM AND SET THEM FREE COMPLETELY. And now John's life is free from all sin and condemnation, and he is able to move forward at last into the will of God for his life.
Dear Reader, are YOU one of many trapped in the world of sin today? Are you struggling with sin, bondage, addictions, guilt and fear and sadness? The Word of God makes it abundantly clear, that Jesus God's Son was sent into the world to BRING salvation and forgiveness to those lost in sin of every kind. Paul the Apostle wrote, "This is a faithful saying, that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief."
Do you feel your sins are too great and many for God to love you and forgive you? Don't. There is nothing you have done that Jesus did not die on the cross to forgive! I have experienced first hand, the power of God as I ministered periodically to people such as drug dealers, hit men in the mob, assassins, satanists, prostitutes and many others, some of whom actually cried as they asked me if God could really forgive them for what they had done. And the answer every time was YES!
May John's testimony of the mercy of God in his life, inspire you to also turn to God and Jesus Christ for forgiveness and salvation, and the answers to your life's problems. Yes, you ARE loved!
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall NOT PERISH, but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that through Him, the world might be saved."~Jesus Christ
