I stop here to say this. Each one of us has a story of how we met and accepted Christ and the change of what we were before and what we are now as a result of meeting Christ. Paul was religious whereas I was on the opposite side of the spectrum. I was as much a sinner as Paul was religious. There were things in my life I would be ashamed to disclose to anyone. There is a verse in Romans 3:25 that says when we receive Christ that God has passed over sins previous ly committed. In my case He had a lot of sins to obliterate. John Newton who wrote the song "Amazing Grace" said once that if there was a sin he didn't yet commit, he would do it. I shared those same attitudes with him in my younger days, but now we are both forgiven. Praise God!
