It is quite amusing …. and in some respects odd that I am regularly accused of lying regarding my views of those people who convert to Christianity.
I hold similar views regarding all religion but as I come from a nominally Christian background I tend to stick with the one I know.
So here’s my view.
Everyone I have encountered who converted to Christianity did so as a result of some sort of personal and /or emotional issue/upheaval
These have included , drugs, sex, (Abuse , Pornography etc) alcohol, depression.
I am often challenged about this assertion and invariably taken to task and usually called a liar: that I have encountered ordinary people with none of these issues who have turned to faith.
Well, I still say no, I have not.,
My experience is that people were either raised in a Christian environment, as I was, albeit nominally, or they were non-believers and converted. And when I say non-believers I include those people who switched faith. Such apostates usually have become seriously disillusioned hence the need to find another version of their god.
So, I am interested to hear from anyone who converted to Christianity who did not fall into any of the above categories; if you were completely outside the Christian faith and became Christian for some other reason.
