My Personal Testimony
From Many Sacred Books
To One Holy Book
My name is Ron Seecharan.
I was born in Trinidad, in the West Indies. I came from a very religious Hindu home. From earliest childhood until I was eighteen years of age, I was brought up in religion, schooled in the traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Shintoism, Confucianism, Islam, Oriental Philosophy, Metaphysics and Mysticism.
As a skeptical young man in high school, I vigorously debated against the Christians, and was extremely critical and intolerant of Christians. They told me that the Bible was the holy Word of God; but to me the Bible was chock-full of contradictions and mistakes and you had to be naive to accept it. I believed Christians were emotional cripples and misfits who needed a psychological crutch to get through life, and that Christianity was an upstart western religion only two thousand years old, while Hinduism was four thousand years older, and that most of the teachings of the Bible had been borrowed from true Hinduism. In my philosophical and mystical studies, I eventually began to embrace a philosophy of relativism and came to believe that objective truth was ultimately unknowable. I graduated from high school and went into the world with this agnostic view of life.
One night in August 1963, I met a young pastor who took time to show me that in spite of my oriental and philosophical background, I could have committed intellectual suicide by rejecting the Bible without investigating the Scriptures in the original language. He also presented the case for the historical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, based on the universally established laws of evidence and methods of historical inquiry. It did not take me long to realize, from my studies in world religions, that only Jesus Christ, distinct among all the world religious figures, had demonstratively come back from the dead. The Rig-Veda, for instance, claimed a resurrection for Krishna, but it cannot be proven. In dramatic contrast, the case for Christ's resurrection was inescapably conclusive, air-tight. I found that there is more objective, historical evidence for Christ's resurrection from the dead than there is evidence that Alexander the Great ever existed; and that if you rejected the historicity of the resurrection, to be consistent, you would have to reject every other fact of ancient history.
For the first time in my life, I knew that I was facing brute facts, solid objectivity, including the truth that Jesus Christ was God in human flesh, who loved me so much that He died on the cross to pay for my sins (John 3:16; II Cor. 5:21). Invited to receive Christ as my personal savior, I simply trusted Him to save me, and that night I knew beyond doubt that I had eternal life. Right then and there, I was more sure of it than I could be sure of living another hour in my physical body.
Friends, doesn't it make sense to believe on the one who came back from the dead, and trust Him for the payment for your sins? Why not do it now, and you can be sure of going to heaven when you die. He loves you. Right now why not accept Jesus Christ as the one who died for your sins and you can know you have eternal life.
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye might know that ye have eternal life, and that ye might believe on the name of the Son of God." (I John 5:13)
Christ died .............. that's history.
Christ died for me ....... that's salvation.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that ___________________ believeth in Him should not perish,
whosoever (Your Name)
but have everlasting life."
Friend, if you can sincerely put your name in the blank space above, on the authority of God's word, you can know you have eternal life.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that heareth my word and believeth on Him that sent me hath (possesses now) everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but is passed from death unto life." (John 5:24)
