I’m David

Simply stated, I want this site to focus only on Christ, and my thoughts and learnings on what it means to be a true Christian according to the Bible. This is my metanoia, and the lessons I have discovered, and am attempting to put into practice on the endless path to Christlikeness.

I grew up in a Pentecostal environment and I am thankful for my Christian upbringing. I have known many genuine people who love the Lord and I have seen and experienced true miracles of grace and healing. In recent years, though, I have become aware of the growing greed and deception that has seeped into churches world-wide. Many of the topics discussed on mymetanoia.net focus on beliefs that I may have once accepted which I have come to realize are not accurate when viewed in light of the whole of the Bible. Because of this, it may appear at times that I am only trying to disprove others, but in reality, I am working myself through what is incorrect about some of my long-held beliefs and discovering what the Bible really says. This is especially true with regard to what many would call the “word of faith” or “prosperity gospel” movements, which I have come to realize are often a dangerous and destructive distortion of the Word of God in today’s Church.

If you start from the beginning, a progression may be evident; sometimes a thought from a few years ago will be revisited and a newer entry will offer greater clarity. This is especially true regarding healing and the sovereignty of God. God is fully sovereign, and this doctrine is incompatible with what so many teach today and my understanding of it has grown steadily over the years. I do not claim to have perfect truth, but I do pray that from grace to grace, my vision is becoming clearer.

Many entries reference the New World Translation or Jehovah’s Witnesses. This is because I have dear friends who with genuine sincerity of heart follow this religion. Using the authority of God’s Word, I pray I might reveal the truth behind this organization’s distortions to genuine Christianity. Millions are unwittingly held hostage in the tyrannical grasp of the Watchtower Society’s self-anointed and seemingly all-powerful “governing body.” It is my desire that all who are trapped in this religion would have their eyes opened to the genuine gospel of salvation in Christ alone, who is the only way to God, the only source of truth, and the only means by which we may obtain eternal life (John 14:6John 14:6 (ESV)
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
