  1. Greetings all

    Hello all . Firstly let me say, that its 2am where i am and im not long in after a long shift at work. So i'll be brief in my introduction and promise to post a better and fuller bio some time soon.

    My name is Marty and i am a recently returned backsliden Christian. Now i know that alarm bells will be going off in some peoples mind but i can assure you, i AM a backslider in the real sence as i know with absolute certainty that I am saved.

    I was about 17-18 when i came underconviction and for the next 6 years, i wanted to become a Christian but didnt know how to tell my friends, well it came to a point in my life where my fear of hell and recognition of my sin drove me to seek Christ and when i prayed for forgiveness, i got up and never knew anything else, but i was born again. I walked with God for 5 years and started to let prayer slip and next thing i knew, i was in a backslidden state. I can tell you now that the past 2 and a half years have been very miserable but i am back now and intend to stay with Christs help. Now as i say, this is brief and when i come to write my full testimony, it will be a demonstration of the saving power of God ( the circumstances how i was eventualy saved are nothing short of a miracle) and also as a warning to Christians of how lack of prayer leaves your mind open to the lights of this world and how the slope into the mire can become very slippery very quickly when you take your eyes off the Lord.

    So again, Hi for now and hope to meet many new friends here and if you can put up with my awful spelling and grammer, im sure we can all get along just fine lol
