I forgot I was a “Reverend”

I have to laugh at myself. Nine or more years ago when I first toyed with the idea of being a Christian and not knowing much, I registered to become a Reverend with an online company so I could marry people or do whatever they do.

I’m an ordained minister.

Before I share the email I got congratulating me on my nine years, I want to say something. I didn’t become a real Christian until about five or six years ago because I was new into Christianity nine or more years ago. I simply felt I would travel a road to find God.

At that time I went to non-believing churches such as Unity Church. I took classes offered through many churches, some online and some in person. I even went on retreats with one church. But I wouldn’t recommend those church’s any more. It wasn’t true Christianity. I wasn’t reading the bible like I am now and I wasn’t educated from the bible nearly like I am now.

I don’t consider myself as becoming a real Christian until five or six years ago. Even being baptized years before that and not knowing what the gospels of Jesus Christ were truly about is not something I would say meant I even knew really what I was doing. I was in a desperate state and my guess is that Jesus laughed at my traveling these non-Christian roads that were from false teachers in churches that weren’t truly Christian.

I have no doubt in my mind that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Lord, and that I am truly saved. That is how I see my journey to becoming a real Christian and worshipping Christ in truth.

And I want to say that my dad was also ordained so that he could marry people. He was a staunch atheist.

Here’s the email I received.
