Mikhaila Peterson’s conversion story shows the value of redemptive suffering | Article | Unbelievable

Mikhaila’s Journey Peterson described herself as agnostic prior to her conversion. She wasn’t hostile to Christianity but was turned off by its evangelical sloganeering, judgmental attitude, and its inability to make a compelling case for faith. Experiences with psychedelics had opened her up to the possibility of the existence of God but it wasn’t until she did battle with a formidable triumvirate of pain consisting of a personal divorce, her mother’s cancer, and her father’s struggle with Akathisia that she began to take it seriously. One of the most transformative influences was her mother’s religious conversion during her cancer diagnosis and treatment. It was during this time that she met her future Christian husband. He told her that she needed God in her life and encouraged her to pray and ask God to reveal himself. The next day she woke up feeling a calm she had never experienced before which she attributed to the Holy Spirit.

Does Jesus Endorse Blind Faith?

Many people think that we need to “just believe”, despite any evidence that non-Christians show us. I don’t think that is necessary at all. There are evidences everywhere that the Christian faith is objectively true, and the Bible says that it is OK to look at the evidence.

Smart Christian does not necessarily endorse the advertisements on this page.

Not Too Evil for Salvation

Mark 2:16-17 King James Version (KJV)
And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?  When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

  A lot of people believe that they are too far gone for Christ to save them, Some Christians even seem to believe this of certain people, but he came for the Demon possessed, the thief on the cross, tax collectors, Saul the murderer and persecutor of Christians. I don’t care what you have done, you are not too evil for Christ to redeem.
Christians, sometimes you have to back away from people for your safety or even your sanity, but even those that you fear so much that you want to run when you see them can be redeemed by Christ. They still have to pay an earthly cost for their sin, but Christ blood can even cleanse them. If you can not bring yourself to witness to them, pray for them.
