Hello Pilgrim,
Great article! Thank you so much. You know I know it is never good to measure ones own perceptions to calculate the truth, but when you are looking into something like this matter in the word of God I have no other real facts of anyone's life but my own. As I look back on all the things in my life only I know of, how many times I should have been dead, how many times I went blithely on my journey in life without a thought of God, how many times God has intervened in my behalf, there is only one conclusion- He is the one that pursued me and enabled me to come to Him. To say other wise is to either be blind or a liar.
We are moving in a couple weeks and our new area has a PCA church! YES! I will finally get to be in a church where they see the truth. Can't wait.
