Hi. I heard you on Matt Slick. I was an alcoholic for eighteen years since I was fifteen from my first drink. I drank, went on to do drugs, drove drunk etc. I never went to AA meetings because I knew it wouldn't work because I would have to rely on my own will power and it would all be on my efforts and I knew I would fail.
God is so good. He sent someone to my house to tell me about the gospel by inviting me to his new church down the street. I was raised Catholic and had twelve years catholic school, read the bible and would cry knowing I could not live up to it, but never had answers to my many questions about life, and especially sin. This Pastor had answers to my many questions that the Catholic church or anyone else for that matter, never did. What he said rang true. And the day he came I kept him at my house for over an hour asking questions. I didn't drink that day or the next when he came back and we talked more. I went to his church for two Sunday services and the third time I went to a small bible study there of 7 people and God saved me. They were talking about Adam and Eve and the scales came off my eyes and I was crying knowing that I was a sinner from birth and Jesus forgave me of all my sin. From that moment on I was completely delivered from alcohol and it will be twenty two years on October 30.
The truth set me free from even being tempted by alcohol. God's grace is amazing and you are very blessed to have such a ministry to share the truth of the gospel. Only Jesus saves and He saves completely and that is truly good news.
God bless. Margie Wong.
