"I, believe I have "Called of God to be Minister of the word of Lord Jesus Christ and his love for all mankind."
I come from a family that wasn’t very religious. My mother was Roman Catholic and my father was Protestant. I was baptized as Catholic when very young. Around 10 or 11 years old I attended classes for my First Holy Communion. I went to Church every Sunday and I even ate fish on Fridays until I went into the US Marine Corps. I guess you could say I was a good Catholic.
In 1967, I enlisted into the US Marine Corps and I continued attending Mass. While I was at boot camp that I started to question the Church beliefs and practices. That was the time period the Church started changing their policies so to bring more young people to the Catholic Church. I have always believed the Church was the foundation for which people are seeking God and his teachings. But, the Church was bending and conforming to the wishes of people. This is not right… The Church does not change for the people, the people change to the Church by God’s spirit and his teachings, so I left the Catholic Church.
A few years later I met another Veteran who also was Catholic. We went back thinking maybe between the two of us we might understand the Church’s thinking for the changes. We attended Church a couple of times. I asked the Priest at the Church we attended why we pray to the Virgin Mary and why we prayed to Mary while saying the Rosary. I was taught that the First Commandment was “Thou shalt not put any other gods before me.” Isn’t praying to Mary making a god? The Priest didn’t answer my questions and ask me to leave the Church. I never went back.
Around 1980 my veteran friend started talking to me on how he finally found The Lord. I was very interested and researched God on my own. It was then I what I’ve been missing all my life. It was the” LORD JESUS CHRIST”, and I FOUND MY SALAVTION! I was sitting in a restaurant, with my friend Chuck. We prayed to Our Lord and Holy Spirit to come into my heart. And I acknowledged that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and to keep me and guide me for all eternity.
I do believe Christ has called me to Minister for Him. I am being led by the Holy Spirit to bring people to Our Lord through educating God’s children with the Prophecies in the Bible and eschatology.
I believe with all my heart and soul the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to GOD our Father and to my "Personal Salvation."
Other than earning a Master’s Degree in Theology with an emphases in Bible Study and working on my Doctorate in Theology, the only ministerial experience is to talk with friends, family, and anyone else who is willing to listen to my testimony and teachings.
